This park is a nice park for the value. The owners were exceptionally friendly. (the gentleman just turned 90!) The spots are spacious and long enough to hold a truck, fifth wheel, and tow vehicle without unhitching. The entry road is narrow and rugged and dirt, so I can understand how one might complain if it was rainy, muddy, and night time. However, we arrived in early evening and had no problems whatsoever. We would definitely stay here again if we were traveling through! We camped at Joy O RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Clean and quiet! Fine for an overnight stop, but I wouldn't want to stay longer as there are no amenities beyond the laundry. Small mom-n-pop park, for sure. Entry is dirt and twisty, but we had no problems with our big rig. Small park, only about 30 spots on one looped road. All hookups worked fine, although the look of the electric pedestals was a little concerning at first. Mature evergreens line the park, next to a wheat field. Open grassy area to exercise the dog was a bonus. There were only 4 other rigs there, and 2 of them had "Rent is due" notices on the doors. We paid cash as the credit card machine was down, so not 100% sure of the accuracy of the "Amount Paid" field. We camped at Joy O RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Almost didn't stay here because of all the negative posts. I am glad we gave it a try. It is an old park but very well kept. The pull through sites are gravel and packed dirt. Very level. The sites are surrounded by beautiful pine trees. There are many full timers, but their rigs are well kept. The road in is very curved but we had no problem getting in towing our car. We camped at Joy O RV Park in a Motorhome.

Spent one night here while heading west. The roads into the park were dirt and windy, but passable for a big rig. Check-in was smooth, the owner was pleasant and friendly. The campground itself is old and showing it's age. The site was level, but the electrical box had no circuit breakers. No cable or wifi but cell phone service (Verizon) was available. There was a TA nearby, and road noise was not an issue. In general, a decent spot to stop between Nashville and Memphis when on I40 but not a place I would stay for an extended period. We camped at Joy O RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very basic old park that doesn't seem to have had much maintenance or care in a long time. As previously noted the road into the park is dirt, with twists, narrow and rutted, but passable even with a big rig. The campground is close to I-40 and it was time for us to stop after driving most of the day in rain. The campground interior is also primarily dirt with perhaps a bit of grass here and there. Most of the sites look fairly level and most are also pull thru with adequate roads through the interior to make it through the park. The 50 amp electric service at our site 9 did not have a disconnect or circuit breaker that we could find and therefore ended up connecting and disconnecting via a live receptacle, a very unsafe situation. Further the service receptacle was less than a foot above grade. The park was probably half occupied with longer term residents with a lot of junk lying around most of those sites. The campground served the purpose we needed it for the night we were there, but we'd certainly look for another campground when passing through the area the next time. We camped at Joy O RV Park in a Motorhome.

Shore services are good. Water is about 40psi. AT&T Cell Phone is good, Sprint & Verizon Air Cards are good. No cable. There are sites to handle big RV's, are gravel & Dirt, with plenty of room for slides and between sites. Road into the park is narrow and rough as well is the road in the park. Did not use restrooms or laundry. Only a couple of long time tenants. Satellite access is good at most sites. No discounts. Payment can be cash, check or credit card. DirecTV Satellite is possible at most sites. This is not a great park but is good for a few days. We would stay here again. We camped at Joy O RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

If you want a pleasant well maintained CG you will not find it here. The day we were here the adjacent farm had just spread manure and it stunk to high heaven. The male owner is a grump though his wife is talkative and pleasant. Wi-Fi is nearly non existent except in the office itself. Difficult entrance/exit into the CG though fresh gravel had been laid. I had just driven 7 hours and there was no other CG within 50 miles so ... any port in a storm. My suggestions is that you go elsewhere. We camped at Joy O RV Park in a Motorhome.

1st: where can you get a full-hookup site AND a pool for only $25 total cost, including tax? And while this is an older campground, the hosts are wonderful, the place is clean, and the pool was a nice, unexpected bonus (stayed in Aug). West side of Jackson TN right off I-40. Close to interstate but noise did not bother us. Easy big rig access, although the entry road looks a little scary - keep going, you'll be surprised. Surrounded by a large crop field, good shade, easy pull-through. Small older bath/shower house inside same building as office. No cable but dish is ok here. Wi-Fi now! pretty good, some spotty coverage but usable if you're in the right space. We planned on one night, stayed for three. We camped at Joy O RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a Mom & Pop park with the same owners for 30 years and they are delightful. It is just 300 yards down from the TA Travel Center (exit 68), where we dieseled up, convenient to I-40. Small but very clean. Our 45' bus and large tow had no problems here. We camped at Joy O RV Park in a Motorhome.

In the face of an approaching storm as we drove down I-40, we saw the signs for Joy-O and decided to stop for the night. The campground is adjacent to I-40, but traffic noise was not too bad. Interior roads and sites are gravel. The old breaker box at the site had a 30 amp receptacle but no breakers, just an open hole where the breakers should have been. The breakers for all sites are located in a couple of panels mounted in the center of the campground. The receptacle in the box was not secure, and jiggling it caused the power to go on & off. The restrooms and showers are old and were relatively clean given their age, but a major rehab is needed. Given the poor condition of the electrical system in this campground, we will not stay here again. We camped at Joy O RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Not a destination spot but its great for an overnight. Friendly lady runs the office, nice pool for the kids and small enough park for them to ride bikes as hardly any traffic. Looks like they have a few extended stay people but it's a clean park. Two gas stations nearby. Note, the truck stop diner isn't worth the $$$ and its the only thing close. We'd stay here again (and eat a sandwich in the RV). We camped at Joy O RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I would caution anyone who is thinking of camping here to check the electrical box and make sure the ground line is indeed grounded! One afternoon as my children and I were in the camper it started to smoke very badly. After getting the children out, the camp owner, an electrician (who was camping directly beside us) and myself inspected the damage. The electric box was putting 220 volts into my camper instead of 110 volts. With this overload of volts came a burned up refrigerator, built in vacuum cleaner, air conditioning, and 2 flat screen televisions and a few more items. The camp owner opened the electrical box and informed us it was a ground wire that had "come undone." Our camper was in the shop for over 1 month getting the repairs it needed. Our camper was only 1 year old. After the incident the camp owners decided to change their story and somehow say it was the campers fault. But any one out there who knows electricity knows that our camper doesn't produce the 220 volt...his bad electrical box did that. I am saying all this to just warn you to be aware of the electrical boxes that look like they are from the stone ages and to offer some advice. The advice is...just up the road a little ways toward Nashville is a wonderful campground. Buyer beware at JOY-O Rv Park!! We camped at Joy O RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Don't stop here if it is raining, I'm still trying to get the mud off my shoes and 5th wheel. The 50 amp connection for my space did not have a on/off switch. A very nice lady runs the park. We would stay again (only if its not raining) only overnight. We camped at Joy O RV Park in a Motorhome.

It was an OK overnight stop. Far enough away from I-40 so the noise wasn't bad. Nice pool. Gravel sites with grass and trees. Wouldn't stay for other than overnight. We camped at Joy O RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
