The Natchez Trace Parkway Updated:04/2023

What Is The Natchez Trace Parkway?
The Natchez Trace Parkway is a 444-mile drive through exceptional scenery and 10,000 years of North American history.  Used by American Indians, "Kaintucks", settlers, and future presidents, the Old Trace played an important role in American history. Today, visitors can enjoy not only a scenic drive but also hiking, biking, horseback riding, and camping.

There are more than a dozen campgrounds along the Natchez Trace Parkway corridor, three in the park, and many others just outside the park.  The three Parkway campgrounds are free, primitive, and available on a first come, first serve basis.  They do not offer electricity, showers, or dump stations.  They are spread out along the Parkway: Rocky Springs (Milepost 54), Jeff Busby (Milepost 193.1) and Meriwether Lewis (Milepost 385).  Many of the other campgrounds along the Parkway corridor offer electricity, showers, and dump stations.  Check the complete updated list of all the campgrounds along the Parkway for the locations and services offered by private and public campgrounds.  Those who are biking the Parkway may be interested in the bicycle-only campgrounds along the Natchez Trace Parkway.
