Our most recent stay at Natchez Trace State Park was in June 2013, for a family reunion, when we stayed for three nights in one of the cabins on Cub Lake. Our cabin had one bedroom, one bath, one living room with sleeper sofa, and a small kitchen. The decoration was basic, ditto the kitchen utensils, but everything was pretty well maintained. The cabins all have a/c, which is necessary as much for dehumidifying as for cooling. From the cabin it was an easy walk to the swimming area at Cub Lake, which is roped off and graded with sand. We enjoyed a good swim there, although on Monday morning it needed some serious litter clean-up (which we gave it) from the weekend. Near the swimming area there are paddle boats for rent, which we've enjoyed in the past; however, the boat rental office is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays so we missed it this time around. We also thought about going horse-back riding, but learned that there was no horse-back riding this summer, unless you bring your own horse. So instead we did a lot of swimming, at the lake and at the pool at Pin Oak Lodge, and took long walks through the woods. In the past we've also played tennis and gone fishing. So with all of that said, the pros: very peaceful, beautiful woods, beautiful views of the lake from the cabins, cabins are comfortable and allow for self-catering, lots of wildlife (saw turkey, deer, turtle, and raccoon this time around). The cons: services at the park seemed to have been cut back to a minimum, although this may have been because we were there at the beginning of the week. Still, with cabins, very little service is required, and we enjoyed our most recent visit much as we've enjoyed our many visits in the past.
