While traveling the Natchez Trace we stopped at the Meriwether Lewis death and gravesite. It’s interesting if you enjoy history and is a nice rest area for travelers. I highly recommend this stop if you’re in the area.

We camped here, and while it had some of the nicest campsites we'd seen, there was only one restroom building for two camping areas. But it is free, which is amazing. We would have liked to hike a bit but the trails were leaf-covered so...More

I like the little cabin there and there is a camp ground and a large creek you can actually walk in in the summer to cool off. You even learn something about our history of how Meriwether Lewis died here.

Little known site which I found so intriguing, that I went on to research Meriwether Lewis's mysterious death.

Interesting but not a lot there other than a statue. Nice area and you can go for a walk on the Trace but we didn't have time.

I've walked through this park with kids and hiked by my self several times. It's a gem along the famous Natchez Trace Parkway. Stop to picnic, stretch your legs, some comping available.

This site contains a monument to Captain Lewis, the remains of the Inn he died at and his grave in a pioneer graveyard. There is also a modern replica of the roadhouse and large picnic grounds all very well done.

While our riding the countryside, visiting an Amish store, eating lunch in Hohenwald, cane upon the park and decided to stop. Thoroughly enjoyed walking the old path, the breeze under the trees by the burial site, plus learning more from the park rangers. Next time...More

Wish there was more info about Meriwether Lewis' and his mysterious death to be viewed at this site, which is mostly the granite marker and the Grinder House nearby. There are also accesses to the Old Trace from the grounds, and a full park ad...More
