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.

Tips for other Campers:

Very easy drive into Memphis itself from here.

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.

Friendly enough staff and the park is great for a couple nights visiting the local area. We did not use the pool as it seemed the locals can pay a fee and use it as well. It was in a convenient safe location with a few restaurants a short distance away. 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.

We have stayed at this KOA many times on our way south in the Fall and north in the Spring. It is a really convenient location. The sites are really close together and I don't think we would enjoy it much if we were staying for any length of time but for a night or two, it is fine. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. They offer a nice breakfast each morning for a nominal fee. The interstate runs by the park but we barely notice the traffic noise. We will stay here again. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an adequate KOA. We stayed one night with KOA Points. Very hard to get to if you are not familiar with "access roads" and "frontage roads". Sites are very tight with trees; turns with a tow are difficult. The turns to get out are worse. We had to wait for the big motorhome in front of us to leave before we could pull out. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Motorhome.

This KOA was overpriced for what they had to offer. The sites are sparse dirt/gravel and narrow. We barely fit between the trees on our site. Road and train noise was present but not bad. Curiously there was a row of concrete pad sites with concrete patios right behind us, but we were not offered one. Much of the park was in rough shape, and really needed some TLC. While it worked for an overnight stay, I probably wouldn't stay here again. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here several times. The park is well maintained and the staff are friendly. I wouldn't want to be here during peak times when the park was full as the sites are very narrow and close together. They have garbage pick-up each day at the site. The WiFi worked well and they have a good selection of tv channels. We will stay here again. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park. Easy to get to from the interstate. Quiet and clean. People are friendly and helpful. Only stayed one night but would stay again. We were in a 37 ft rig and we barely fit in the site with the car attached. Sites are close together. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Motorhome.

Registration was quick and easy. Site was easy to locate, but did not receive and escort. Pull thru sites are level and long, but some sites are close together. Good water pressure. Wi-Fi and cable worked well. Pool was clean, but pool deck seemed to need attention. Outside carpeting on deck was in poor condition showing wear, holes, and coming loose. Park is located close to I-55, but traffic noise is not an issue, but train horn is very audible. Nice park to use as a base while touring in the area. We would return.

The staff was very nice. My complaint is the condition and cleanliness of the laundry area. The machines were old and worked poorly. I had to spend $17 on five loads; dryers were $2 for 45 minutes and the jeans and towels needed more time. If the price of this campground was $25 I might have excused the condition of the laundry. Also, picnic tables are in need of paint. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Travel Trailer.
