Those sound great. Currently in Bristol TN awaking to rain. The park here Rocky Top, is very nice. Thanks so much for TX info.

When traveling down The Trace, make sure you plan your trip where you can eat at The Old Country Store, in Lorman MS. I promise, you will be glad you did. You can do an internet search and there are many youtube videos about Mr. D there.

We have the senior citizen Eagle pass for Nat'l Parks and have heard it's good to get the Texas pass. Thanks.

The Nat'l Parks Sr Pass costs about $20-$25. Once you have it, it lets you into all Nat'l Parks and Nat'l Monuments and more-- for free. Up to 4 in your car can get in free also. It is for the entrance fee only. You still have to pay for camping -- but it is at half price. This is a one time fee, not annual! They check your driver's license when you present your pass so the Rangers do keep an eye on who is using it. Very worthwhile to have. You have to be 62 to obtain this I believe. I've used mine several times, Yosemite, Yellowstone, Devil's Tower etc..

this isn't going to help u with texas but we travel between (around) greenville, mississippi and Lawrenceburg, Tn several times/yr via the trace. we have been all the way up to nashville once.
i can recomend the Thasound trails natchez trace rv park if u find urself in that area. even though, it is located next to the trace, i would go down to US 64 and work my way back. if u exit next to the park, the overpass has a low clearance...i believe 10.5 ft.
u are probably going to go to baton rouge from natchez. i would prefere to go to Alexandria, la and go down US165 (i don't like the traffic in baton rouge near the miss river bridge).
there is a nice campground, run by the state, just south of Alexandra, La. at woodworth, la. called Indian Creek. nice park, widely recommended.
If u find urself in Sonora, Tx there is a campground just south of the interstate. if ur into caves, they have an interesting one just outside of town.
