Only stayed one night and it was raining so were not able to use the pool, but the park and grounds looked clean and well-tended. Office staff were very nice and helpful. Location convenient to I-40 (7 miles north), they offered BBQ for delivered dinner, breakfast in AM (didn't have either). Some slight distance train and highway noise but not enough to be really disturbing. Would recommend this KOA. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Motorhome.

We would rate this KOA best we'd ever stayed at if it weren't for the mosquitoes! They were huge and traveling in battalions! There was just no fighting them. We don't know if the park is always like that or just because they had recently had rain, but they were more than we could take. The KOA workers and service was great and we wish we could have stayed. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Tent Trailer.

Make sure you understand the access road situation in that area BEFORE you try to navigate it. We've never seen anything like it before, so you will want to try it out for the first time in the daylight!

A very nice park. Lovely area with a lot of amenities. We pulled in late last night and it was very nice that they had a cafe when we were too tired to cook. The pizza was delicious. You can tell that the owners care a great deal about keeping this park looking great! We camped at Memphis KOA in a Motorhome.

The staff were wonderful. Due to illness we had to leave and they waived the 48 hour cancellation policy. If you get a site near the back, you are a little further from the Interstate. Although some reviewers complained about the noise we had no problem with it. We did leave the fan on one A/C unit running full time, like we always do when near a highway, to create some "white noise". The 70' pull-through sites are nice and easy to get in and out of. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Motorhome.

The park was clean. The hook ups were centrally located. The site was reasonably level. The wifi worked ok as did the cable. We thought the price was quite high for what was there, but it was close to Memphis and that is where we had to be for that night. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed at this park many times. The staff in the office are very friendly and the store is well stocked. Wifi works well. Has a fairly long dog walk area. Trash is picked up at the site every day. They provide an escort to your site. Only negative thing I can say is that the sites are very close. When we left, the couple beside us had to move their truck so that we had enough room to get our past their rig. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The park will arrange for a shuttle to take you into Memphis so you don't have to unhook. They also have a supper menu and will deliver your meal to your site.

Stayed here just on an overnighter. Was not all that hard to find, just follow the signs, and might check out Google Maps for how the highway turn a round is designed. Arrived after hours and they had our info ready to go. Easy to find our site. Lots of large trees. Will stay again when in the area. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

What a terrible experience! The GPS gave us incorrect directions, so my husband had to pull our 41' RV through an opening maybe 10-12ft wide. We had trouble finding the office since we apparently came in the back. When we did find the office, they were closed because they are only open at 10 and 2 for some reason. The manager was also very rude. There seemed to be dog poo everywhere because no matter how careful we thought we were being, someone always stepped in some. On top of that, the noise from the highway made it hard to keep my baby asleep, the laundry was outrageously priced and the dryer didn't even work, and all this for $50 a night!! We only enjoyed seeing our family. We would never want to return to this park! Do yourself a favor and find another park. No one deserves this experience. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Spent one night at the campground. The staff was friendly and helpful offering dinner suggestions. It is located next to the interstate; however we were given a site at the rear of the property so traffic noise was not a problem. Our site was gravel, level with some shade. Facilities were typical KOA. Our kids enjoyed the pool. We would camp here again if passing through, but would look at other campgrounds if staying several days. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Motorhome.

Pretty standard KOA with lots a little on the small side for a KOA. Narrow gravel roads, small lots, about five feet to the next campsite. The electric sites, water sewer hook up all worked fine and the cable was good. WIFI was slow but worked. The campground is right off the freeway and so had traffic noise. The dog area is just a narrow bit of grass. They have a regular 7:00am pancake breakfast we did not try. The store is full of Elvis memorabilia. This is our second stop here. The prediction was for very severe weather north of the campground so we decided to sit a day out there and wait for the storms to pass. We stopped in with no reservation and still got a good campsite. It's a very typical KOA with an Elvis theme. We would stay again. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Even though I just began writing reviews we have camped at KOA's from Maine to California. After saying that, the Check in at this park was absolutely the worst I've ever experienced at any campground. Went in and said I would take a back-on, pull through, sewer/non sewer, but preferred to be as far from the road noise as possible. After approximately 30 minutes of clicking on the computer we finally ended up with a site. Ironically it was in row 2 behind the office. The sites and roads were gravel and fairly close together. The Wi-fi was weak but useable. The cable TV worked well. The road noise wasn't as bad as I expected but I failed to realize that a railroad was nearby. Trains ran all night and they loved to blow their whistle. I will avoid this KOA if returning to the area. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Motorhome.

We go to a KOA expecting a certain level of quality and we got it. A typical if somewhat more overcrowded KOA. Clean, all facilities well run and in good working order. We camped here because we had friends to visit in Memphis. The KOA is normally a 20 minute drive to Memphis. This drive required nearly an hour and we had to go through a nightmarish traffic situation to get over the bridge into downtown Memphis. For visiting Memphis I would wait until the construction is done or go somewhere on the Tennessee side. They do have tours of all the major sights right from the KOA to avoid the driving. Two things struck me about the place. One, this would be like a parking lot when busy. I have never seen such efficient close packing of trailers. You give your rig size and you get a site exactly to fit and not one foot more. There is only just 8 feet of grass to the next site. It is also an easy on and off from the interstate because it is on a service road so the noise was really problematic. Truck roars all night long. Wi-Fi was a delight after trying a few of the repeaters to get onto one close by. Cable was minimal for a KOA. Great for an overnight or to park your rig at while taking their tours into Memphis, but I don't think we'll be back anytime soon. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Travel Trailer.

It has probably been 15 years since we last stayed here - well before it was a KOA. We stayed here one weeknight at the end of October. We had a level, gravel, FHU pull-through site with OK but limited (24 channel) cable TV. Because this is an older park with lots of mature trees, very few site are satellite TV friendly. Their 802.11 network was good for our needs. There were a number of extended stay customers but the park was less than half full the night we were here. The pool was closed for the season but there is play equipment for kids. The final pancake breakfast of the season was on the morning we left. Due to some recent rains, there were some large puddles on some of the interior roadways. One staffer was filling these puddles with gravel while we were there. I do remember that this park used to have severe flooding problems years ago. The bathrooms and laundry were older but adequate. The staff I spoke to were friendly. $50 is way to much too pay in the off season. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Motorhome.

The staff was friendly and when I asked for a spot with few trees, she placed us in a "satellite" spot. The spot was long, easy in/out and no overhanging trees. We are KOA members so got that discount plus had seen on their website about a $5 discount for on-line reservations/call in reservations. We were very pleased with this park and would stay here again. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Motorhome.

Good for an overnight stay, but not much more. One of the roughest shape KOA's we have stayed in. This park needs some TLC. Staff was friendly enough but not much more than a mediocre pool on the site. Probably would not stay again We camped at Memphis KOA in a Travel Trailer.
