6 Parks near Memphis, Tennessee

The Agricenter on Shelby Farms is pretty central to everything on the East side of Memphis. If you want convenience, this is the place. Now, it is like being in a sardine can as far as how close you are to your neighbors. Our awning would hit the next guy's if we both tried to have them out. It can be a little noisy if there is anything going on at the Agricenter. They always shut down by midnight though and it is usually only on the weekends. You are in the 3,000 acre Shelby Farms park so a lot of opportunity to walk, bike, jog and in good weather paddle the wolf river. The park has a fishing lake and a unique playground. There is a farmers' market on the weekends.
At the actual RV park it has full hook-ups with sewers. We stayed on the weekly rate of $180.00. It was fairly quiet. The police patrol the park at night. We felt pretty safe. Wi-Fi works fairly well. We had no problems with the camp host, but have heard a few complaints on other sites. They seem to have gotten a second in so they can do shifts.
Will come again as we have family close. This is not a resort, but a great place if you want to sightsee Memphis or have business.
Important! Come in off Germantown Road entrance, not Walnut Grove! Don"t follow the signs on Walnut Grove. Narrow with many speed bumps. If coming from I-240 getting off at Walnut Grove and go all the way through the park to Germantown Rd. Make Rt and then directly another right into the main entrance. Then follow the signs easier. - RVing Along

The Good: Easy access for any size rig. Close to East Memphis, Cordova and Germantown. Reasonably safe area of town.
The Bad: Narrow (but long) sites, all in rows. No trees or landscaping. Think big gravel parking lot. Park Host has minimal customer service skills. Pack rigs in tight, even though most spaces are empty. Host claims they are reserved but long term residents will let you know this is bogus.
The Ugly: Laundry facilities are disgusting. Showers and restrooms even worse. If you must use them, ensure you are current on all vaccinations/shots. Any trash that doesn't make it into a trash can will remain on the grounds until winds blow them away.
Summary: if location is more important than the quality of the park, then simply accept the park for what it is and stay here. Nothing else is nearby. If you don't mind a little drive, then research alternatives. - Selectively Unemployed

Preferred entrance, with a better and direct interior road is the Germantown Rd (Rt 177) entrance. Our 30 Amp plug had no breaker. The water valve rubbed against the electrical box. Wifi is password protected, but was not working. Sites are gravel and are long and narrow. The sewer connection is raised and away from the site. There are no facilities. They do not have a way to swipe credit cards. They copy your number and enter it the old fashioned way. I paid cash. - BobatRetama

Previous reviews helpful. Great location; right on the grounds of Graceland behind the Heartbreak Hotel. Well secured with gate guard. Friendly professionals. We stayed two nights just before Elvis Week started. Placed was full when we pulled out. Pool area was relaxing and comfortable. We'll return again. - ArmyColonel

The management was very friendly. The WiFi faded in and out. The sites could have been more level. Good place to walk pets. Not in a great neighborhood but was a pretty good park to stay in considering it was in walking distance to the Elvis Presley attraction. I would stay there again if we go back. - Angeleyez

Campground is located across the street from Graceland. Rate includes parking at Graceland ($15 for RVs) the day we left, so consider it a bargain. Good TV reception and well stocked store. Elvis music played on speakers - fun! Nice pavilion for cooking, but it was too cold to use the pool. Don't go to Marlowe's for BBQ, very touristy, not very good. I'd return to park, it was fun! - Tiara38

The traffic is heavy on Elvis Presley Blvd, where the park is located. It is hard to find entrance as well in that heavy traffic. Check in took less than five minutes. Lots are cramped, but not too cramped. Hookups are easy, but had to keep water spigot turned low as the water pressure was pretty high on our pressure gauge. Showers were clean. Security was visible everywhere in the park. Dog park is a good walk to the back where it was. The pool looked clean, but we didn't use it. The only real drawback, and given that we live out in the country and are not city dwellers, is the Airport nearby. Memphis is the FedEx hub and planes were departing and landing non-stop between 2am-4am. Even given that, we would stay here again. One of the biggest selling points on the park was the night shuttle 6pm-Midnight that runs from Graceland RV Park to Beale Street every 30 minutes. Not advertised, so we didn't know about it, but a welcome bonus. - Prairie Bayou

This is the RV park directly behind and off the same driveway to the Heartbreak Hotel. Site was not real level, had to do a bit of jockeying to not be in "excessive slope" mode. Gravel/grass site, power tower starting to fall apart, park needs some serious maintenance. Staff very friendly. - rvrrat520

Right next to Graceland but a bit of a drive to downtown Memphis. Entrance signage is a bit hard to see on the busy boulevard so drive slow and be on the lookout. Staff was very friendly. Roads are paved and a bit tight. Sites are gravel and level. Utilities worked well. Bathrooms are clean. - VegasVagabonds

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

This campground is an equestrian campground and therefore has a problem with horse droppings which results in a fly problem. The restrooms were dirty and the showers in the womens bath houses were so dirty that my wife refused to use them. I believe that the state of Tennessee could do better job of upkeep and make this a real nice campground. I would not recommend this campground to anyone for any reason until cleaned up properly. - vaga-bonds

Rate reflects senior discount. Gravel, level, long, spacious sites. Good electric, MiFi, Verizon phone. Downgraded 1 point for low branches overhanging roadways. - rollingredwood

Well kept park with easy access within park. Paved roads and pads. Shaded sites throughout campground. Good Camp Host with free tickets to Indian site next door. Electric was good and water good. Dump station clean. Short drive to downtown or Elvis Graceland. For a SP without sewer and WiFi, a good find. - osok

Nice quiet campground; Ranger and camp host were present and on site. We camped in site #31 which was a 94' pull through. Not on the best side of Memphis; easy drive to Graceland and to Beale st. There were only 5 other campers in the campground, very clean. Rate reflects access America pass. - not one
