Jeff Busby Campground is a free National Park Campground along the Natchez Trace Parkway which itself is perhaps the most unusual National Park. The road, and park are 444 miles long running from Natchez, MS in the south to it’s northern terminus near Nashville, TN. Much of the drive along the Trace is like driving through the woods. It’s lovely. The shoulders are manicured grass, in places for 100′ or so to where the forest begins. The speed limit is 50. Commercial traffic is prohibited. If you want to get gas or stop at a restaruant, you jump off of the Trace into a nearby community hidden on the other side of the trees, so to speak. Towns line the Trace, on the outside of the park. You don’t drive through them while driving the Trace. These things combine to make driving the Trace a most pleasant and peaceful journey. READ MORE…
