Make sure to camp in designated areas only and the quiet hours are between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Place campfires in rings only and please don’t leave them unattended.

We only spent one night here in our tent because we were moving on to Alabama, but it was great. The camp is clean, quiet and pretty. There are a ton of trails to hike including the old Natchez Trace trail. We did get to visit the grave of Meriwether Lewis who’s monument is located right near the campground. Planning a trip back here to visit for a while is on our summer to do list.
Always follow the Leave No Trace Seven Principles and try to leave your camp nicer than you found it. Please research campgrounds before visiting. Rules and regulations may have changed since we stayed there.
