The Witch Dance bicycle-only campground is located at milepost 234 along the Natchez Trace Parkway. This area is also the staging area for the Witch Dance horse trail on the Tombigbee National Forest. This campground has restrooms, picnic tables, fire rings, fire grates, and drinking water (April through October). Water is available in the restrooms during the winter months when the outdoor water may be turned off.

Tent camping is allowed at the picnic tables near the restrooms, or in the horse staging area located to the south of the restrooms. By following the sign marked for hiking and horses, you will find the horse staging area. Camping is not allowed in the picnic loop at the north end of the Witch Dance area.
