This is one campground you will want to take your time heading to, reaching it by way of the historic Natchez Trace Parkway. The campground sits on a ridgetop in young oak and hickory woods. It is comprised of one loop and a side road. Steep hillsides drop off from all sides. Younger trees, some of which are dogwoods, separate the sites. The camping areas are well maintained and well spaced and offer decent privacy. There is a water spigot at each camping area, and a campground host. Campers can get a site almost any time of year. A few weeks in March, April, October, and November are the only times the campground is full: this is when snowbirds from up north are heading to or from their winter destinations.
