There are actually three bathroom buildings. The first one is out on the Parkway at the turnoff for the day use and picnic area (which was closed), we didn't check that one out. The other two are inside the campground but one of them is all boarded up and unusable. The only one left had no working electricity, so no lights and no hand dryers. It also smelled very musty because there was no ventilation fan working.
I don't know, maybe I expected too much for free, even though it is located inside one of our National Parks.
The Mount Locust Inn was built in 1780 and was one of the first stops north of Natchez when walking on the Old Trace.
When we were camped at Natchez State Park a Canadian couple from Ontario pulled into the campsite just across the road from us in a 40 foot Class A Motorhome and a small 4 door car they were towing behind it. I got to talking with the older gentleman while he was working on one of his tires shortly after they pulled in. I offered to help but he told me he was just removing a rock from inside one of his hubcaps that was driving him nuts.
He didn't appear to need help and turns out he was a semi-truck driver back when he was still working, so he was more than qualified to remove a rock from his hubcap. We got to talking and I learned that he and his wife have been snowbirding from Ontario to Texas for the last 15 years. Each year they travel the full length of the Natchez Trace twice, first south and then north. They have seen and done everything there is to do and was a wealth of information of what we would see for the next ten days on The Trace.
We also discovered that we would be leaving on the same day and heading to the exact same campground next. So when we arrived here we at Rocky Springs Campground we once again parked across the street from each other. Since we were only planning to stay one night there didn't seem to be a need to unhook THE POD from the truck, but Elgin and his wife Wilma told us there was a small church and cemetery that we might be interested in seeing located at the top of the hill inside the campground.
It was only a mile or so from the campsites but it was all uphill. When I asked if we could possibly walk up there to see it he offered to drive all four of us up there in his car and show us around. We immediately accepted! I've always said you meet the nicest people in campgrounds.
