VA to Big Bend via Natchez Trace

Any recommendations as to good campgrounds, especially in TX? Leaving Mar 23.

Are you taking the Natchez all the way to the end in Mississippi?

Geri--I had planned on doing the Natchez Trace last year after I picked up my new TT in Ohio. However the pickup date kept getting moved back and I couldn't keep my vacation open to give me enough time. It looks like it would be a very interesting route to take. I'm sorry I didn't get to do it. Maybe on another trip. Have a good time!

Thanks Gus. I know several others who ran it. Will report end and any good places to stay.

Neat! That looks like right on the way. Is it on the nearby lake (Map). Thank you.

There is also a nice KOA in Livingston, right on the lake with a good restaurant on-site. If you plan to take I-10 W thru Kerrville, check out Guadulape River RV Resort (a few miles off the Interstate on Hwy27) or Buckhorn Lake Resort right on I-10. We have stayed at both places several times. Farther West on I-10 is Balmorhea State Park (a couple of hours from Big Bend). Not much to offer out in that part of the state, although there is a nice Western museum in Pecos about 40 miles away.

Thanks for the heads up on Texas RV Parks. We want to hit as many Parks (Nat'l and State) as possible.

Davis Mountain State Park is a beautiful park and is a about 2 hours from the the Big Bend. In fact, we just returned from our annual trip. Lajitas also has a nice park with swimming pool. Enjoy your trip to Texas
