Natchez Trace RV Campground – Hohenwald, TN

Thousand Trails Natchez Trace RV Campground  in Hohenwald, TNLocated in the middle of an 830-acre forest preserve the Thousand Trails Natchez Trace campground is the perfect destination for anyone looking to get away from it all and with 566 sites to choose from there is something for everyone.13211146_10208328138635330_1442498318_oGetting to the campground can be a bit tricky depending on which way you come in. There is an 11 foot bridge if you come in off the scenic Natchez Trace Parkway. There has been a solution that is described on the campground’s website.  A sort of bypass has been created that gives plenty of clearance, but you have to get your camper off the pavement and onto the man made gravel path beside the road.

We came in on State Route 64, which allowed us to bypass the bridge all together. But as you can see below, fellow blogger Pastor Scott and his wife Jackie had no problem getting under the bridge with their F-350 and 35 foot Hitchhiker.image-003Once you get to the campground you are greeted by some of the friendliest staff members you will ever meet. I don’t know if it is a Tennessee thing or if they just have amazing staff members, but seriously the most helpful and happiest Thousand Trails staff I have ever meet work here. Check in took no time at all and the map was easy enough to read. We were given a gate code that changes every Monday.13230680_10208328138755333_473735235_oThe main Thousand Trails campground is quite a far drive from the front of the campground. It honestly takes about 8 minutes to get from the gate to the main area and you have no choice to go slow because of the condition of the roads and the hilly terrain. The condition of the roads is something the campground is well aware of and working on, I cant wait to see what they look like when they are refinished.13113147_10208328138795334_648363008_o The pool, beach and miniature golf are located at the front of the park and require a vehicle to get to from your campsite. The beach area you can swim in is sectioned off and pretty large if I do say so myself. No watershoes are necessary because the entire swim area is sand.13211128_10208328138315322_1986766431_oAll of the sites are 30 amp and have a water connection, a few also have sewer. We were lucky enough to get a very large site with sewer and plenty of shade from the trees. I do wish we were able to snag a water front site, but all of those were taken by people that are there annualy and they don’t have sewer.

Our Verizon signal was great, but we got nothing from AT&T while in the park. We were able to pick up the parks free wifi during our stay as well which gave us plenty of internet for streaming and working but no phone line to make calls. I’m not sure how they did it ‘way back in the sticks’ but this parks wifi is the best I’ve ever had in a Thousand Trails facility.13199556_10208328137515302_11284140_oOur site had a picnic table and a large patio slab that was perfect for evening entertaining. It also had a charcoal BBQ, but we brought our propane grill so did not use it.13211038_10208328138555328_2125562508_oWe had tons of campfires during our stay, and never paid for wood. The entire woods is filled with knocked over trees and our kids loved seeing how much they could gather for smores after dinner. We made our own ring out of medium sized rocks and really enjoyed our nightly campfire. Make sure you use bug spray before going into the woods, there are ticks!

There was a large park, just a short walk from our site. I loved being able to sit at the table and get work done, while watching the kids through the window.13230724_10208328138835335_510011503_oThe Town Hall is where most of the major happens at Natchez Trace and it’s huge.13214539_10208328137835310_319657250_o One side is the recreation center where there is an adult lounge and a kids lounge that features a free pool table, air hockey, ping pong, & indoor bowling as well as a fitness center with locker rooms/showers and 2 racquetball courts.13234639_10208328137715307_1533972155_oThe other side has a table with puzzles and hosts weekend events.13214747_10208328138235320_2058144297_oThe campground has plenty of laundry faculties, that are $1.50 for wash and $1.50 for 45 minutes of dry time. There is a small trading post as well, that came in handy for milk, a cold soda, beer and the ATM.13199423_10208328138515327_154081739_oWe had no issues finding things to do, places to visit and stores to shop in during our stay. The town of Hohenwald is 20 minutes away and has a Walmart, a nice coin laundry mat with super large washers (great for bedding) and a small Mexican restaurant that features all you can eat buffet! Nashville is about an hour and a half way, but totally worth the visit. Make sure you visit the Texas Bottom swimhole and Stillhouse falls while your in the area.
