Camping Along The Natchez Trace Parkway, Mississippi

No fees have to be paid to enter and explore the Natchez Trace Parkway and if you like to stay a few days then you will find three camping sites along these 444 miles of beautiful nature and interesting history; the Rocky Springs, Jeff Busby, and Meriwether Lewis campgrounds.

A spot on one of these camping sites is free of charge as well and available on a first come, first served basis. The sites are rather primitive and don't have electricity, bath houses, or dump stations. If you rather prefer some of those amenities then there are plenty of other private and public campgrounds along the route which do.

The sites can also accommodate RVs and there is even a campground specifically designed for bicycles only. Just keep in mind that the busiest times of the year are spring, fall, and holiday weekends, and that for some activities you may need a permit.

Those permits pertain to charity events and group bike rides for instance. Commercial buses definitely need a permit and if you plan on filming then you better make inquiries if you need a permit for that too. The permits are issued from and can be obtained at the Chief Ranger's Office in Tupelo, Mississippi.

Another thing you need to know when planning to take this drive is that as of February 2013 the section between milepost 265.5, and milepost 264.8 is closed due to construction. Ensuring the safety of the trail users is estimated to take until February of 2015, but the trail sections north of 265.5 and south of 264.8 remain open.

This shouldn't withhold you from taking the drive though. It is only a very small part of the many miles of uncanny beauty and exciting discoveries!
