Just an overnight stop while visiting relatives. Nothing fancy, no amenities to speak of. Easy access to I-40.
Previous reviews pretty well sum up what you'll get. We camped at Agricenter International RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
Farmers market adjacent to the RV park on Friday and Saturday with fresh produce.

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.

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. We camped at Agricenter International RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is on the East side of Memphis. We enjoyed being able to walk to the Farmer's Market in the center. The WiFi was excellent. There was an event on Friday night that was pretty noisy until 10 pm but it didn't bother us. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Agricenter International RV Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Agricenter International RV Park in a Motorhome.
Easy access, lots of space between sites. Located in a nice area of Memphis. Farmers market open on Saturday, Flea market the third weekend of each month, $3 fee for flea market, nothing to do with campground. Only negative is people who I assume oversee this park close down at 7 and will not answer the phone after that. I could see their TV on, car there and they would not answer phone. We needed password for WiFi as they did not give us that upon check in. They did return our call around 8 the next morning with password. Was not much good to us at that point.Other than the customer service, a good place for a night or 2. We camped at Agricenter International RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
Camped here in a 40 ft RV. There are no discounts for 50 amp. 30 amp offers a $2.00 discount. Fair amount of space in between sites. Gravel sites are pull-through and level and will accommodate 40 ft plus a tow car, and there is still room. We didn't use the bathrooms/showers. We were parked right across from the Farmers Market handy to buy veggies and baked goods and Flea Market on Saturday. Its open M-Sat. We felt very safe here. Its a really nice part of town. Close to shopping and food. Make reservations, because it fills up fast. We would come again. Its not a destination park, but it's great if you are going to see the local sights.

Good location by Germantown. All roads gravel and sites are gravel. Not all sites are level. There is a large daily Farmer's Market next to the campground. WIFI worked good for a few days while we were there. We camped at Agricenter International RV Park in a Motorhome.
How you rate this park will depend on what you are using it for-- stop overnight, easy, hookups and on your way the next morning-- ten stars. Yes, it is a gravel parking lot, but the sites are mostly level. Yes, the spaces are right next to each other, but we didn't see any neighbors and it was very quiet. This is located in the safe part of town and is close to a shopping mall, restaurants, drugstores, etc. and it is close to I-40. I think in the summer it would get rather hot and if you want to hang out and relax at the park, then maybe a different place is for you. If you need a place to park your RV, have sewer hook ups and sleep-- this is a good place. You have to put this park in the context of what you need: we needed a stop over off the interstate for overnight where we could dump. This was perfect for what we needed. We would stay here again and I found the camp hosts to be helpful and friendly. We camped at Agricenter International RV Park in a Motorhome.

Not a great destination park, but a good place to stay while visiting the area. There were few campers when we were there so we had plenty of room. If there was an event and all available sites were filled, it looks like it could get pretty tight. The Farmer's Market next door was nice and a fun place to visit. The Corn Maze across the street played loud music Friday and Saturday evenings, but that would be a Fall thing. The lady who checked us in was very nice and helpful. We would stay here again.

The best thing about this park, is its location. If you are visiting the Bartlett, Germantown area, it is the only camp available. Other than the location, there is no reason to stay here. It is a flat open field with mud if it rains, RVs packed close together, and NO trees or flowers. The view is your neighbor eating at his table. The campground host is at best surly. We have stayed here twice, because of location. On both occasions, there were sites available that were not either mud or between two other RVs. We were told that those were reserved. Nobody ever came in to any of them. We camped at Agricenter International RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The best thing I can say about this campground is that it is convenient. It is close to everything I needed and is a safe location. There are many stores, restaurants close by. Otherwise, it is a big empty field, site are extremely close, there had been a lot of rain and it was a mud hole. WiFi is available, but it costs extra. No cable, but you can pick up a couple of local stations. If you are looking for amenities, this is not your place, but if you just need a place to park, it is a good one.

Basic rural park with gravel sites and unpaved roads. Sites very close together. Camp host not very helpful. Asked for a different site for our 43' motorhome, but he said they were all reserved. The site we asked for is still vacant. Good side of Memphis. Felt safe here. OK location for seeing area. We camped at Agricenter International RV Park in a Motorhome.

I found this campground depressing. The sites were very close together and gravel, but at least our site was level. There were a number of run down looking RV's in the campground. The campground hosts were not at all helpful. The park DOES have wireless internet, but my husband had to call management to find out about it. I think if I go to Memphis again, I will seek out another campground. Power, water ,and sewer worked fine. Dogs were welcome. We camped at Agricenter International RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a good place to stay to see Memphis sights. It is close to shopping and 4 miles south of I-40. Flea Market and Corn Maze activities were taking place while we were there. Sites are close to each other and could use some grading and additional crushed rock. Good roads to ride our bikes and walk the dog. We camped at Agricenter International RV Park in a Motorhome.
