The best camping near Natchez Trace Parkway guide



The Natchez Trace follows a 450-mile route through three states. Driving on this parkway gives you an opportunity to explore an ancient migratory route. Native Americans, European settlers, Civil War troops, and future presidents all followed this trail at one time or another.

Luckily, you can motor this 10,000-year-old pathway instead of walking the entire way. Start in Nashville, Tennessee at the northern end or go for Natchez, Mississippi, in the southern portion. In between, you might go through the northwestern corner of Alabama. There are plenty of hiking trails, campsites, bike trails and scenic overlooks along the route. Autumn is a perfect time to see fall foliage in mid- to late October.

The Natchez Trace follows the western boundary of the Ross Barnett Reservoir in Mississippi. Put in your own boat to spend time on the water or go fishing. A mountain bike trail tests your acumen on two wheels, while 16 parks and five campsites let you enjoy nature in all of its glory.

Scenic opportunities include mountainous terrain and foothills, plenty of waterfalls along lazy creeks, old-growth forests and the famous Sunken Trace. Sunken Trace shows the popularity of the path as it goes between a narrow corridor of two trees leaning on each other. Several hikes are just a couple of miles long and close to the highway. Other hikes are longer and more strenuous, which means you can plan several day hikes close by each other or one hike that lasts all afternoon.
