Natchez Trace Tennessee Camping
Even though we are going through a tough time right now, I don’t believe camping in the outdoors is on the “do not do list’, after all, you’re probably camping with less than ten people, or at least just with family. I’m glad my mom, son, and I got to visit Natchez Trace before all this quarantine stuff broke loose. Although getting stuck in a cabin in Tennessee wouldn’t be a bad thing.
Thousand Trails Natchez Trace Wilderness Preserve offers many things for the camper and RVers. There are deluxe cabins as well as premium cabins. Lots of parking and a lovely lodge to enjoy family games, and even a putt-putt golf area. If RVing, you’ll have full hook-ups, plenty of parking for your vehicle, a boat ramp to fish off of, and beautiful surroundings with hiking trails galore. Who wouldn’t love that? My 10-year-old son was in awe the whole time. His favorite thing to do was skipping rocks.

When booking our cabin, I looked for a roomy place with enough room for us and our friends to hang out. I found the perfect cabin for us – it’s called Nashville. The Nashville cabin is near the water, and inside the cabin is decorated with Nashville memorabilia. I wanted to do karaoke several times, but I didn’t want to embarrass my son!

Roasting S’mores at Natchez Trace, TN
Later in the evening, while getting ready to roast s’ mores (because it’s not real camping until you bring out the s’ mores), I noticed not very many marshmallows left in the bag. Umm, I wonder who ate them all. We had to resort to using bananas. I think I found a better (and healthier) way to make s’ mores.
Hiking at Natchez Trace State Park
Not only was this a great nature trail to hike on, but it is also home to many beavers. While walking through, we saw evidence that the beavers love it and are here to build their habitat. We hiked around and had fun spotting all the gnome houses nailed into the trees.
Brody’s favorite thing to do on nature hikes is finding a stick to a walking stick. He didn’t have to – walking sticks were hung on a tree for hikers to use this time.
About halfway through our nature hike, we spotted these painted letters hammered into the trees. R E L A X – it’s precisely what we intend to do while camping at Natchez Trace, Tennessee!
