Before you go, check out the following review, including some important stops along the way.

What is the Gypsy Journal?

Nick and Terry rode the Natchez Trace Parkway in an RV, starting from the southernmost point in Natchez, Mississippi and ending at the northernmost tip in Nashville, Tennessee.

This is their personal report highlighting many stops along the way.

They begin with this

The best way to experience the Natchez Trace is to follow the route the old boatmen did, from south to north. Mile markers and rustic information signs identify points of interest along the Parkway. Space does not allow us to identify every point along the Parkway, but we will include some highlights to help you plan your own trip. Starting near Natchez , Mississippi, at mile marker 8.7 a parking area provides access to a portion of the original Old Trace.

And end with this

Mile marker 444 is the northern terminus of the Natchez Trace, and from here it is a short drive to Interstate 40 and into Nashville. If you are like us, the trip up the Natchez Trace may be over here, but the memories of your trip up this historic route will last a lifetime.

So, if you’re thinking about RVing the Natchez Trace Parkway, why not take it from someone who’s been there, done that? Nick and Terry have a lot of great information to share with fellow RVers on the Gypsy Journal!
