Natchez Trace State Park, TN: Half way between Nashville and Memphis was to be our first stop. Just an hour and half on the road to get us warmed up to what will be a long haul. What we didn't know was this beautiful state park's campgrounds were 11 miles off of Interstate 40. A little more than we planned and further away from out valuable cell service. Oh, well, we got a great campsite on the water, campground was 10% full which made it just great as far as we're concerned. We found a site all to our own, neighbors far away.
Most of these state parks we've been to are featured around lakes and ponds. No difference here. The big difference is the condition this TN state park is in. Wow, I'd give it a 5 star. With the exception of no wifi and an extremely weak cell signal, the sites are well maintained and equipped with water, elec and sewer hook up. Speciall note to Patrick: the restooms/showers were clean, great water preassure and hot water galore. We bailed from the Lil Coconut and we used the facilities both nights. They even had a laundry room at each camp loop. This is rare folks. Good job TN, especially for a conservative state. Twenty five dollars a night is a great deal.
Yes, it's true, I did have to spend an hour or two up by the bathroom where the cell signal was a little stronger and followed the NBA basketball playoffs. I did not like the results as Chicago beat undermanned Cleveland.
Anyway, these photos were taken while walking and biking around the campgrounds over two days.
