24845 Natchez Trace Road, Wildersville, TN 38388
Located about an hour west of Nashville, Natchez Trace State Park encompasses almost 10,000 acres of pine and hardwood forest. Swimming, boating, and fishing are popular activities at the park’s three lakes. Hiking trails for all skill levels range from half a mile to a 40-mile overnight trek. Additional trails accommodate mountain bikers and horseback riders. Bird-watchers come from all over to spot one of over 130 species that have been observed in the park. Playgrounds, a sandy beach, and ranger programs will keep the kids engaged.
The seasonal Cub Lake Campground comprises a mix of partial hookups and primitive sites, and can accommodate RVs under 25 feet. The newer Pin Oak Campground is open year-round, offers partial hookups, and has sites that can accommodate RVs up to 80 feet. Note that cell service is reportedly weak to nonexistent in Pin Oak. Historical Civilian Conservation Corps buildings, camping cabins, and a lodge with modern rooms, restaurants, and WiFi make Natchez Trace a great destination for families and groups. After a night or two in the peaceful, natural surroundings, it will be easy to understand why visitors return year after year to this beloved West Tennessee park.
