The Natchez Trace State Park is a state park and forest area in Wildersville, Tennessee. The park was created as a part of President Roosevelt?s ?New Deal? program, which bought the land from its residents who can?t farm the area anymore due to extensive erosion issues.

Named after the historic Natchez to Nashville highway, which was an important wilderness road during the early 18th century, the Natchez Trace State Park still contains some of the western spur of the said road inside it. It is also known as the Natchez Trace State Forest, being home to thousands of acres of scenic woodlands within its 10,154 acres of area.

The Natchez Trace State Park also offers a wide range of recreational activities including camping, picnicking, swimming, fishing, boating, hiking, and horseback riding. There are also some playgrounds, a resort inn, restaurant complex, cabins, ball field, pistol firing and archery ranges, and a wrangler camp among other things.
