Excellent view of Mississippi River; wide, long sites. Trash is picked up at your site 3 times a day, free WiFi of good strength, and free laundry facilities. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Motorhome.

This was our first time at this park and will definitely return for a longer stay. Campground is very clean and very quiet. Garbage picked up regularly. We had a front corner site right on the Mississippi, very spacious and so relaxing to watch the barges go down the river and lots of open grassy areas to walk and play with our dog. Very pet friendly. Can't say enough about the friendly staff. Minutes from downtown Memphis to enjoy the music, restaurants and shopping. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great park on the banks of Mississippi River right over the bridge from Memphis TN. Make sure you make a reservation even for an overnight (they just take your name; no credit card needed). It was full when we pulled in & were told it had been like that for 2 1/2 weeks. They do have an over flow lot for dry camping.

Our site faced the river and was beautiful; benches are all along the river to sit & gaze. You can choose either gravel or concrete pull thrus; concrete are closest to the river with amazing view. Spacious sites with plenty of room between neighbors. Satellite & WiFi worked well. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Motorhome.

If you do not have a river front site, the remainder of the park is very red neck. Loud music playing, barking dogs, it sounds like a dog pound. Wifi cuts in and out and is worthless. Many permanent residents with run down units. Why this park has such high rating is beyond me, it must be the cheap price. The spaces are close together except the river front site which were all booked. If this was a a PA park I could understand it, but don't believe the reviews, it is not even close to an 8.7 park. We booked 5 days because of the reviews, we will probably leave early, it's that bad. We were stuck in the "monthly section". We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Motorhome.

Booked on short notice so wound up in woods away from river view. Actually turned out better since it was unusually hot and river view spaces don't have much shade. Wooded sites are fairly close. Entrance roads need improvement. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Motorhome.

So peaceful. Benches on the rise above the river and fire rings. Easy access to several major highways. The drive in to the park is gravel but level and no potholes. When you enter the park, it may look a bit bedraggeled to you but it is a very nice park. The first line of sites sits about 20 feet back from the Mighty Mississippi River. The park is only 10 feet above the river which gives you an amazing view of the beautiful river and all the barge traffic that goes by. Very good level gravel lanes within the park with long pull through sites. We have a premium site with a concrete pad surrounded by lovely grass. Sites are spacious and set up such that we do not look into the next RV. Some sites are surrounded by tall trees. Our site #99 is not - but I think this first line of sites is the very best - we face the river and love watching the barges going by. They make no noise. This is a nice quiet park with no hiway or street noise. Only negative would be in the summer in this open field area due to no shade. We will definitely come back to visit this park in the Spring and Fall. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful park set along the river. It is fun to watch the barges go past. They offer free washers and dryers during your stay along with many benches stationed along river to enjoy. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Motorhome.

This park has a nice view of the Mississippi River. The staff is very accommodating. That's it. There's no pool, no cable, no recreation facilities and the bath house is old; clean but old. The Wi-Fi is not bad. The sites are long and level and most have concrete pads. One section has trees the other is wide open.
Getting to the park is a challenge. The neighborhood is not the best and streets not marked well. But, it is peaceful, quiet and has a wonderful view of the Mississippi. The park's shoreline must be close to ¼ mile long. There are several benches and fire pits on the bank providing a very relaxing place to view the river traffic. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in site 83. Concrete padded sites very long and very level. This park has a wonderful view of the Mississippi River. Great for relaxing and watching the barges being pushed up and down the Mississippi river. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Wife tried some fishing in the small ponds, caught and released two small bass. No issues with the WiFi it worked for us. Park is very convenient for accessing the Memphis city. My dogs (two Yorkie's) and I walked on the walking trails early in the mornings, nice long walk and they were very well kept. Looking forward to staying here again.

Called ahead for reservations. It was nice they didn't require payment ahead of our stay. Little to no delay at check in. We camped on the river side. Sites were basic, but adequate. No trees or shade. Power worked as expected. Didn't use the water. Roads into and on the campgrounds are dirt and very dusty. Sites are a combo of gravel and concrete pads. We had a pad. The best thing about this RV park is the view of the Mississippi River ... "amazing". Just sat on a bench and watched the barges go by on the hour. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Take time to grab a meal at BB King's on Beale Street. Great food and music. Visited the pyramid Bass Pro Shop on the river. A huge store. Great layout. You could spend a day there.

Rate was for 50 amp with full hookups. Driveways were gravel and our pad was concrete, passenger side facing the river. Pad had gravel and standing water all over it. We had free, passworded Wi-Fi service. WiFi was not responsive at all, irritating and useless. We tried iPad, iPhone and a PC. There was no cable TV. 19 OTA channels were available. Sewer connections were screw in. Water pressure was 40 psi. Our picnic table was missing, but the help retrieved it from another site. ATT phone service was 4 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 4 out of 5 bars. View of the barges on the Mississippi river was wonderful. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here overnight only. It was a very nice park. Right next to the Mississippi River. Wide sites and easy to get in and out. It was quiet and the staff was very helpful. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a really fun place to stay. The drive in takes you up and over the levy right to the edge of the Mississippi River. It is an unspoiled section of the river and wonderful to sit and watch the boats go by on the River. Half the sites for short term rentals are in the trees the other half are full sun. The park is very well taken care of and clean. Bathrooms and laundry are new and updated. Great walking all around the park. They have well maintained trails to take your pets for walks. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We stayed in site 91 and pulled thru in reverse so we had a direct view of the River. Ran our utilities under our Motorhome. I suggest trying to get sites 67-76 (I think) as they have trees for shade in that section.
