Here are my notes about this park, in no particular order:
1.) Location, location, location. If you're going to downtown Memphis, this is the place to stay! It is sufficiently removed from the city of West Memphis that there are no security issues. The owners live on site and keep a very good presence, plus are quite friendly.
2.) They need to pave the roads. It looks like they're doing it in stages, which is understandable. If they complete the paving, it will be very nice. There is a wooded area at the entrance that also needs a couple of street lights.
3.) They do have a nice lighted sign when you turn off South Loop Drive, so you can find your way onto their entrance road.
4.) I'd really give this park an 8, but I add 1 for the view. There aren't many places you can sit 20' from the MS River and watch the barges. It was very educational for our daughter as we discussed how the barges work while sitting there on the park bench. (They have benches lined up by the river so you can sit and enjoy the view.) It was also nice at night, as you could see the Memphis bridges and downtown all lit up.
5.) They are re-furbishing the tree house, which is a must see. We look forward to coming back in a few months to see it completed. It looks like a great place to hide out and read a book - at least our 10 year old thought so.
6.) This is a very popular park and appeared to be sold out, even during the weekdays when we visited.
7.) You don't have to disconnect your toad. It's easy to navigate and pull right into your site, toad and all.
8.) We're already planning our next trip back. It's an awesome way to explore Memphis without staying in the city. - dad2aprincess

Love the location and watching the barges go by. Very friendly staff! We had electric problems and they happily helped us after hours. The laundry being free is an added bonus. The Internet did not work and the owner needs to upgrade their system. Our overall trip was wonderful. - Daryn Hinton
