14 Parks near West Memphis, Arkansas
Feb 2017 - $41.00
This park seems overated. Yes, it's on the river, which is nice. But other than that, it's average at best. Gravel interior roads with a mix of gravel and concrete sites (I paid extra for concrete). It seemed like there were two "sections". One loop close to the river, and another loop a little further back (with unobstructed views across a field). Biggest problem I had was that there only TWO combination bath/showers (unisex) for the entire loop. That's inadequate. The location is off the beaten path in West Memphis. Between I-40 and the park, there are some questionable areas (Two WMPD officers hanging out near the entrance). The park is far enough down the road that it's sort of isolated and probably fairly safe, despite the police presence. Unless your thing is being adjacent to the river, it's easy to find a nicer park for less money. - usernametaken

I look forward to coming back here and staying a few days sometime when the weather is good. It was too cold to stay this time, down in the low 20s. The campground is right on the river, very spacious, lots of room to walk. Its off the beaten track so be sure to study those directions on their website and then its easy to find. This looks like a work in progress so quite bare bones now but there is an area of concrete pad sites. When they finish this project, it will be incredible, in my opinion. - UllaPool

Stayed here to visit Memphis. About 15 min to Beale St. Very clean large park on the Mississippi River. We had a riverfront site that gave us a wonderful view of the river. Enjoyed watching the barges slowly move up and down the river. Large, level sites. We had concrete pad but many are crushed gravel. Shaded spots limited but that was a bonus this time of year. Was very dusty due to lack of rain but certainly not fault of campground. Will definitely return. - 2retiresoon

We camped here because we couldn't find any campgrounds available. Didn't have reservations. Called at night, lady answered. Waited for us. Nice older lady trying to run park alone. She needs help. Didn't see anyone else there. Were a couple of autos next to older looking campers. Couldn't use bath house, really nasty. Also really close to highways. Didn't bother me, but my sister couldn't sleep. Did look like a bad neighborhood. A dilapidated/vacant motel or apartment bldg,right in front of campground . Sign said 'Good Sam'. But it isn't. On the bright side, the WiFi was EXCELLENT! Fastest I've ever encountered. Lady was real nice, friendly. - ParisMarie7

This is an older park but it was secure, the park no longer honors Good Sam nor do they take credit cards. But, the attendant was nice, showed us to our site, even offered to show us around town. Although close to the highway the noise wasn't too bad. The sites are level, 50 AMP service and for the price it's hard to beat. We would stay here again. These are nice people. - Jim Tadlock

This park has recovered from the flood. Extremely helpful owner and staff. Many concrete pads right on the Mississippi River where you can watch the barges travel by. Clean, Good 50 amp power and free Wi-Fi. Very convenient to downtown Memphis right across the I-40 bridge. This will be my choice for a campground in the Memphis area. - spitfirepete

An overall pleasant park close in South Memphis. Easy access from freeway and roads inside are easy to navigate for even large rigs. There are both back in and pull through sites. Park is well maintained. Trash cans are convenient and emptied regularly. There is recycling for plastic and aluminum at the bath house. Water and electric are easy to access. Type of water spigots that cannot be set on a low pressure so do not plan on filling your tank with fresh water before you leave. No wifi but my Verizon worked but probably only because I have a booster because it only got one bar. Ranger and park host are on site at all times. Host is always busy around the park making sure things are running smoothly. Only complaint was on my third night there were planes going overhead what seemed like every ten minutes during the night until 1 in the morning. I have no explanation. There is no shopping nearby but across the border in Mississippi in Southhaven is all you could want or need. - nanzhere

This State Park was OK with exception of the site assigned to us was very rough and not level. We did move after getting permission but since the park was only 25% full we felt they could have put us in a decent site to start with. The bathrooms and showers were not good and this is probably due to not being kept up but also a real lack of attention by the camp host. We would think twice about staying there again. - Stan from idaho

Great place. The ranger office was closed, but a ranger nearby told us where to find the campground manager. We were allowed to check in early, and were offered other sites as there were openings and people had previously complained about the site we were assigned. Bathrooms, showers, laundry, an ice machine, and a playground. - charles_from812

I'm not at all sure why this KOA only rates a 7. It's one of the better parks I've utilized on this cross-country journey. It is clean, well treed with amply spaced and adequate length individual sites. The hosts were friendly and helpful. The BBQ was good (although the portions for the sides were more than a bit small). Wi-Fi signal is strong with fast internet access. Even in the prime evening hours access to Google Maps was quick. I was able to view a couple of Youtube videos also. Gnats were a distraction in the evening. There are rice fields nearby that can harbor mosquitoes, but the park has a great many Purple Martin nest boxes to help combat these pests. The park is a reasonable distance from the various attractions in Memphis itself and there is a shuttle bus service available for those that do not wish to drive their own vehicle. The park is a good overnight stop and/or a place to stay for a few days while enjoying the areas attractions. - Retired-n-Roamin

This is a very nice campground. There is lots of well kept grass, mature trees, and sizeable level sites. It is an easy drive to downtown Memphis. The office staff was very nice and helpful. The only downside is the truck noise from the close highway and the train whistles from the nearby tracks. We kept the air-conditioners on at night so they didn't impact our sleep. We would definitely return here. - Dapper

The park advertised free cable TV. I stopped as I wanted to watch the football game. The cable TV channels were limited, quality was good, but they did not have the channel for the game. Was escorted to my site by park personnel. Site was clean, table, but no fire ring. Was not a good value for the nightly fee charged of $47.00. Food service is available for evening meal and breakfast. - Sunchaser v

Stayed 3 nights, one on the way to Branson, and two on the way home. The RV park is small but very well kept but although the amenities here show cable but I'm not sure we did have cable. Gated, very good security, garbage picked up twice a day. - Arnold Tobias

If one is planning to visit Graceland, Beale Street, Sun Studios and other Memphis attractions, this is a nice handy RV park. It is across the street from Elvis Presley's Graceland mansion off of Elvis Presley Blvd. The campsites are a bit tight, but I was lucky enough to get a end site that had more room. The staff members were friendly and the store inside the office sells Elvis souvenirs. The campground is behind the former Heartbreak Hotel (now closed). Elvis music can be heard all day from a souvenir store not far away. There is security at the front gate. - ArmandV

It was a very convenient place to see what we wanted to see. - BJ&ME

This place was pretty much a dump, but as close as we could get to downtown Memphis. It's not in the best neighborhood, and there is no gate on it, so I felt a little unsafe.
We also got kicked out at 11 o'clock (because it was check out time), even though there were tons of open spots. I've never been asked to leave and found it a bit rude.
There is another park down the road that has a gate and cleaner facilities. Spend the extra $5 and stay there. - Sweetcornprincess

Well I made a reservation at the wrong place. For $5 more a night I could have stayed at a much nicer park. Full hook ups 50 amp , water sewer and a WiFi that is pretty good. Nice people here but park needs major work.
Site was fairly level and owner picked one to get good satellite but I don't think they know I need a clear shot due south and there is a big old beautiful oak tree right in the path. Good news pulled in 20 stations or so of antenna. I would not stay here again. - signaloil

This is an old park and it shows its age, but not in a bad way, just a little rough around the edges. The owners are very nice people. They compensate for the size of the sites by limiting occupation to every other site, which works well, giving every one a bit of grass and comfortable picnic table space and ample parking. Very dog friendly, with lots of nice walking and play areas. The neighborhood has its noisy moments, but it IS in town and I'm here on a weekend. - Spike in FL

Very expensive for what is there- no pool, mostly permanent camper trailers, evidently it is on the flight path to Memphis airport - from 4:00am to 7:00am continually landing flights every 4-5 minutes ! - User2272

We decided to try this park for a change of pace from the other area parks we have stayed in over the years. It was the last week of October and the park was almost full of extended stay customers. I saw only a couple empty sites and noticed no other customers who appeared to be transients. We had a fairly level, FHU, pull-through with 60+ channel cable TV. There are 4 rows of sites in this park - the 2 outer rows are back-ins and the 2 inner rows are pull-throughs. Even though the sites are not that small, the park feels cramped because it is so full. I was unable to connect to their Wi-Fi. The office building contains a small laundry and two separate unisex bathrooms. There is no pool and I did not notice any other recreational facilities. No map of the park was given at check-in. Yes, there is a lot of airplane and jet noise. The park is behind some businesses on a commercial and retail road. There is a large supermarket across the street. This park is OK, but the Wi-Fi problem and noise are big negatives. - Jerry S

In town, close to freeway, easy on/off. Paved roads with gravel sites and patios. Just long enough for our 37 foot m/h. Not too close to neighbors. Power was low at times, water and cell (AT&T) was good. Satellite friendly, shopping, restaurants close by. Airport nearby. LOT of noise at 3 - 4 in the morning (could not sleep throught it) and again at 3 - 4 in afternoon. OK park, but the plane noise will make us look elsewhere next time. - kmgulf

This is a very beautiful park with lots of outdoor activities. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The campground sites are heavily wooded with lots of shade. Water pressure was very good at 60 lbs. Most sites on the interior loop seemed fairly level. All sites are paved pads, but most are built-up to make them semi-level and this causes a large step down to the unpaved area. The fire rings, picnic table and grill are mostly located to the rear of the sites.
There is absolutely no cell phone/data service at the park. We were OK with this, just be aware. The downside to this heavily wooded campground is the large mosquito population. Using mosquito spray did not seem to affect them, they came in droves. Opening the camper door briefly to get in or out resulted in a hunting expedition for the numerous mosquitoes that came in. The mosquitoes also invaded the bathrooms/showers. This required a dance to swat and shower. - GA Bob

This is a beautiful state park about 25 minutes NW of Memphis. Our site (#25) was very large. All sites are heavily treed so I could not use my satellite. I got a decent selection of channels with the antenna. All interior roads in this 13,000 acre park are paved as are the parking slabs. To make the slab level the blacktop is raised about six inches above the rest of the site so that was a bit awkward. The park is on the Mississippi River although the drive to the boat ramp/river took 20 minutes. Also 20 minutes away (within the park) was a beautiful lake. There was no phone signal within the park on my Verizon iPnone and wifi is only available at the park office and parking lot in front of it. - RVerMJ

This is a very quiet park that is several miles from anything. Besides hiking and relaxing, there isn't a whole lot to do at this park as the river is several miles away. The bathrooms were clean but could really use some updating. Just a few dollars worth of stall locks that lock and shower curtains that stay in place would make a big difference. Hanging your towel on a horizontal round peg is hard - how about some two dollar towel hooks that actually hold a towel! Note that there is some sort of pump right at Site 32 that makes a loud clicking noise several times when turning on. I recommend NOT CAMPING at or near Site 32 due to this noisy pump. The voltage at my site was pretty good. It would have been nice if the dirt and pavement at our site was at the same level so we didn't have such a large step when exiting the RV. Not all sites have this issue. Overall, this is a very nice and scenic park that is great for relaxing. - tundracamper

This is a large campground with closely spaced RV sites. We were there for 2 days and it rained hard both days so didn't see many people outside but park was more than half full. Price is a little high - $54.00. My only real complaint is that the internet service did not work well. It kept dropping out. Even our Verizon hotspot did not work well. I couldn't log into my comcast email. There are 2 dog parks, one by the office and one in back. Guess which one people clean up after the dog? The one by the office; people think the owner might see they're not cleaning up. The other dog park was pretty bad. Not cleaning up after your dog is so unfair and dangerous to the health of all the dogs. Thats how diseases spread. Very unfair to the park staff, too. I saw a staff person cleaning dog poop in the morning. That shouldn't be necessary. - UllaPool

This is absolutely the finest campground we have stayed at. The outstanding feature is the washroom and shower facility. Wow! The sites are pull thru and spacious with full hook ups. Easy to get to, short trip off the interstate and also close to WalMart.
I would say if you are going anywhere near Memphis or within 50 miles, definitely to there, the showers are worth the trip. I even took photos of the washrooms and shower just in case I could post them in a review.
We have stayed at other Jellystone Parks, but none are as nice as this one. - David34

We have stayed here many times and have come to know what to expect. Clean park, paved roads and RV sites, and reliable services. This time around we did notice that the long-term resident population seems to have increased but it doesn't appear to have affected the park in a negative way so far. You can't go wrong here for a short stay. - Paul Goodspeed

Good, level concrete pads. Sites are close but long, plenty room for toads. Nice staff, easy to navigate interior roads, clean toilets/showers. Airline traffic is a bit distracting. Propane sold on premises. - rvrrat520
Oct 2016 - $40.00
As detailed in previous reviews this is a very clean, well maintained RV park. The sites are a bit close together but angled in such a way that the closeness is not a problem. Large rigs with a toad will find some of the corners a bit tight but doable. The utilities are at the rear quarter of the site and require long hoses for the sewer and water if towing. Cable is available with 27 somewhat grainy stations. Satellite can be done from any site and OTA produced 18 digital channels. The WIFI is totally useless as it keeps dropping you after a few minutes of connection, or it will not let you connect with the internet at all. As mentioned in another review the park sits in the departure path of two runways from Memphis Intl airport which can be quite annoying. All in all the nightly rate is a bit high. - lllkrob

We stopped here for an overnight on our way south and were quite impressed. Here are my notes from this park:
- The park features concrete sites, many of which are level (some not so much).
- The water connection is a bit low to the ground, but workable.
- We used 20' of sewer hose, as the connection was near the back.
- The park is neat and clean with very few signs of trashy campers.
- Roads are paved and easily accessible. It is easier if you disconnect your car in front of the office.
- The playground was small but adequate. Our son enjoyed it.
- Pool was very nice and clean. There was a separate enclosed hot tub, which we didn't use.
- The park is located at the back of a subdivision, and we felt quite safe.
- The staff and other RVers were friendly.
- Grass was very green and well maintained.
We look forward to returning to this first class park to stay a bit longer. - dad2aprincess
