Hi All: We're considering touring the Nachez Trace from TN. toward New Orleans during late Sept. or early Oct. and were wondering about pull-outs, overhangs and particularly campgrounds along the route. Does this parkway accomodate a 45' MH (+ toad) that's 13' high?? Does anyone know and/or have suggestions?? Thanks. Steve and Lynette

Hi Steve & Lynette,

We did that very path in April this year in our 41' motor home, 12' 6" high pulling a Jeep. It is such a wonderful drive you will want to divert to it from now on. Since it was the first time we took it, we spent nearly 3 weeks, stopping at most of the attractions and every campground.

There are 3 free NP campgrounds along the Trace. They have no facilities. We stayed in each of them from overnight to 5 days. There are hiking trails, museums and many special points of interest.

In addition, you can drive off the Trace not very far to reach many other facilities. In addition to the 3 free campgrounds, we stayed in 3 state park campgrounds in Mississippi that weren't far off the Trace. All were beautiful, had full services and one included a free round of golf at a nearby course.

Enjoy your time on that road as your rig will have no problems. Once you experience the Trace, you will wish all roads where that way.

We have travelled the trace n/b twice,, this year we will be going s/b in early November, it may take us 3 days or a week, depending on the enjoyment factor....you will not have any problems using it...you will love every mile... the above posters are correct....
