Overview
More
Natchez Trace State Park is named for the famous "Natchez to Nashville" highway, an important wilderness road during the early 18th century. A western spur of The Trace ran through a portion of what is now the park. The park was built as part of President Roosevelt's "New Deal" program. The land was bought from residents who could no longer make a living farming the land because of extensive erosion problems. With the many acres of scenic woodlands, the park includes four lakes, a swimming beach, a 47 room resort inn and restaurant complex, cabins, group lodge, camping areas, picnicking sites, playgrounds, a ball field, a regulation pistol firing range, picturesque hiking trails, a wrangler camp, 250 miles of horse riding trails, a park store, and archery range. Located at I-40, exit 116, this area is composed of a State Park, State Forest and a WMA with a total of 48,000 acres.

One of Tennessee's many great state parks. Picnic, hike, relax, and enjoy! Don't go here expecting the views and beauty of a park such as the Great Smoky Mountains. It won't compare. But. It will give you a nice dose of relaxation.

This information is available on the web site for the campground, or by using the contact info. We were there months ago, it may have changed, especially during winter months.
