Has anyone ever stayed at Frog city RV park in Duson, Louisiana? It's near Lafayette
Uh... Dude... Don't know which map you're using, but I-55 does not even approach Starkville. 55 is like 60+ miles to the west of Starkville. MS 25 is 4-laned around most of the little towns between Starkville & Jackson and is the most direct route to Jackson. If you've ever driven The Most Boring Interstate Ever, I-10 between Lake City & Pensacola, I-55 from Memphis to New Orleans is a very close second!
The Trace is a Parkway, like the Blue Ridge or Skyline Drive in Virginia. It is what it is. There are limited resources on the Trace proper, like campgrounds and fuel. Both are available in the towns along the way, off the Trace. The speed limit is 40 on most of it, 50 in some parts. From Starkville, it's best to take MS 12 south to Kosciusko and get on the Trace there, if you're ultimate destination is Louisiana. But it's a very easy drive, no commercial traffic and it's peopled with folks just... ambling along. I would strongly suggest you venture a bit farther south on the Trace as now is actually the time to visit Natchez since their Fall Pilgrimage is underway right now... until October 13!
Don't have any first-hand feedback on Frog City RV Park... But, just from the name, it's on my Bucket List of parks to visit!
So... Are you following the Bulldogs or the Tigers? Or Ole Mess?
