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. We camped at Mississippi River RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
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.

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.

What makes this campground so extraordinary is the location. It is one block off I-55, two blocks from the bluff overlooking the Mississippi River, five minutes from downtown Memphis, three minutes from the Amtrak station (free parking and access to the Main Street Trolley). We attend an annual convention in Memphis and always look forward to staying at this unique urban campground. We camped at Mississippi River RV Park in a Motorhome.

Happy to escape from Hurricane, and have a safe place to sleep with power. But, for anyone wanting to bring (4) children somewhere to keep their minds off of the disaster at home, this is not the place to bring them. It is merely a parking lot and nothing more. This seems to me like a park for workers. It is very loud, by the railroad and the interstate, and I was unable to sleep much at all. There is nowhere for children to play, literally. We had to leave to bring them elsewhere to expel energy. Only positive, is electricity, and I brought my laptop and with WIFI, I was able to watch the Hurricane information locally at my home with updates. It just isn't a vacation spot for children. It is, though, close to many attractions in Memphis. We camped at Mississippi River RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
