****THIS FREE CAMPING SITE NO LONGER ALLOWS CAMPING***
As we trek back to Alabama from the Texas panhandle, Natchez seemed like an easy overnight stop with great amenities. This visitor center overlooks the Mississippi River and is only a mile from the heart of downtown. BUT, best of all, this site offers free electricity!
The free campsite is listed on Campendium & FreeCampsites.
Here’s the Breakdown:
Location: Natchez, Mississippi
GPS: 31.5543, -91.4131
Date / Temp: We camped for just one night. It was overcast and 80 degrees. The clouds did clear for a beautiful sunset!
Amenities: This site offers tons of amenities. First, they have free 20 & 30 amp electric. There are only two 30A outlets, most are 20. They also offer water & dump. Inside the Visitor Center you can grab a free cup of coffee. Our favorite amenity (besides the electric) is its proximity to downtown.
Wifi / Cell: We received a 4G LTE signal with both AT&T and T-Mobile (using our WeBoost Cell Booster). The speeds were only ok. AT&T SPEEDS: 6.45Mbps down & 1.29Mbps up T-MOBILE SPEEDS: 5.9Mbps down & 0.72Mbps up
Noise: This site had a few other rigs. The road noise was noticeable, but not as load as an interstate.
Dog Friendly: This site is dog friendly. River had a lot of space to play and explore. They also offer free doggy waste bags.
Entertainment: We recommend walking downtown to explore the waterfront, dinning, shops and history. Take advantage of the two day stay limit here, and explore for two whole days!

From reading elsewhere, it sounds like the Visitor Center no longer allows overnight stays.
