The best camping near Natchez National Historical Park guide

Overview

About

Check out the history of Mississippi's first state capital thanks to two mansions and an old fort that delve into the rich culture of the area. Before the Civil War, more millionaires lived in Natchez than any other city in the United States. Two of these mansions form the backbone of this park.

William Johnson House is a brick structure that shows you what life was like for a free African-American living in the South. Johnson was a successful barber who ran three shops in Natchez. If you wanted a haircut in Natchez, Johnson was your man until he died in 1851. He was good at cutting hair, the best in town for his day. Visitors to his house can take a self-guided tour that includes shop on the ground floor and living quarters above it.

Standing in contrast to Johnson's modest brick home, Melrose Mansion exists as an opulent reminder of the power that Natchez once held in Southern life. Built in the 1840s by John McMurran, many original furnishings and decor are still intact.

The site of Fort Rosalie, constructed in 1716, no longer has any remnants for you to see. However, the area hosts an idyllic picnic spot where you can enjoy lunch. If you love this kind of architecture, many historic homes in Natchez proper are open to the public for tours.

Even though the weather in Natchez stays warm most of the year, try camping in the fall months. Not only is the weather drier, but the hills above the Mississippi River sing with color once the leaves change.
