Fair.

Arrival: Approach from the north (most common) has many chuck-holes and RR tracks. The registration office is separate from the campground. The park itself has tight spots but is passable. Limited parking for rigs, but it is capable. They close at 4:30 PM so if you're late, you'll have to pull in and then go back in the morning.

Sites: Use caution with all the sites, especially the pull-thru's -- they are short. Don't expect to park more than your rig. Expect gravel sites and limited area. Water and electric on some sites are at the rear so front tanks require longer hoses.

Restrooms: Dirty. Open shower plan that only those that are brave enough to use. Trash and bugs prevail.

Cost: $28. 10% Good Sam's discount. Survivable for a short stay.

Local Area: Just outside Memphis. You'll have to drive through some very unsavory neighborhoods between all the attractions, but main roads seem safe enough.

Internet: None. Sketchy cell-coverage due to location and surrounding trees. Not sure about satellite, but there are no clear-view sites for your dish to have easy access.

Other: Bugs! Get used to it... it's the south. Between the bugs, the shrubs, and the location it just doesn't make a visitor want to visit again. Staff seemed to care less...about everything. Lots of "killer" dogs including the camp host that drives around in his Gator with a pit bull... that's comparatively well behaved. When we were there the numerous "killer" dogs of the other guests made us quite uneasy. Will not stay there again. We camped at T. O. Fuller State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great place. The ranger office was closed, but a ranger nearby told us where to find the campground manager. We were allowed to check in early, and were offered other sites as there were openings and people had previously complained about the site we were assigned. Bathrooms, showers, laundry, an ice machine, and a playground. We camped at T. O. Fuller State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Bring mosquito repellant. It's hot and humid, welcome to Memphis. Go downtown during the day and walk Main St and other streets off of Union. Graceland is not far from the campground if Elvis is your thing. Try some BBQ. Beale Street is nice, but there are some areas downtown that are high-crime. Never before have I entered a restaurant with armed security inside. Don't get far from Beale Street (there is a strong police presence) after dark.

Park is spacious and well laid out. A lot of room between sights. Most sites are large enough to accommodate any size RV. Downside is the pervasive foul odor reminiscent of parking next to a feed lot or open sewer. Will not stay here again. We camped at T. O. Fuller State Park in a Motorhome.

We travel in a 45' coach w/ towed SUV. To arrive at the state park, we decided to enter & exit via Hwy 61, Mitchell Ave. exit. This exit is much better than trying to navigate city streets to get to the state park. Once we entered the park, there is a large tree at the turn in the campground. My suggestion is if you have a towed vehicle, to disconnect prior to entering the campground. Found the description of the campsites accurite. The 2 ADA sites are concrete and very nice. Very close to the bathouse/laundry building. Watch overhead for low-hanging branches. We stayed in the ADA camp site, both ADA sites are very long and can accept any length RV. Electric was good - same with water. The dump station is a bit tight. Odors from the sewer lift station were present, but we kept our windows closed. Older campground, but very accessible to exploring Memphis. We camped at T. O. Fuller State Park in a Motorhome.

A small rural campground southwest of the city of Memphis. Very pretty location, spacious sites, nice and peaceful. Lots of pull-through sites with water and electric. We camped at T. O. Fuller State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were greeted by the friendly and helpful ranger upon arrival. Hosts on site as well.

Facilities were super clean and wheel chair accessible. Clean laundry room: $1 to wash load.

Level, paved spacious sites. Two wheel chair accessible sites. Easy hookups.

Lots to do at this historic park, the first open to African Americans east of the Mississippi. Hiking, numerous recreation activities and archeological site. About 11 miles from Beale Street, Memphis. We camped at T. O. Fuller State Park in a Motorhome.

Very clean and quiet park, but a bit rundown. Our water spigot was broken, but was promptly repaired. They were not surprised it had broken again. Spacious site complete with fire pit, grill and picnic table. Nice trail surrounds park. Ancient Indian village remains and museum on property. Very convenient to Graceland and downtown Memphis. That would have been the end of my review, but we decided to stay one more day due to rain and possible thunderstorms (rather stay put than drive). The next morning while taking the dogs on a loop around the campground and packing up, the whole campground reeked of sewerage. Since there are no sewer hookups at the sites, this did not make sense; the dump station was quite a distance away. I mentioned the smell to the camp host and was informed that after it rains the waste water treatment plant next door puts out this odor. I had to take a few points off for the smell. We camped at T. O. Fuller State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Our RV GPS tried to route us off the main stretch of road to the park to go through a neighborhood. I am guessing because there are No Truck signs posted on the road. Besides a old bridge, it is safe to stay on the main road. The road continues out of the park, so I assume they don't want commercial traffic cutting through the park.

Older facilities, but for what they were, they were clean. Included a laundry. First site had no 30 amp power, but not problem getting relocated. Good access to Memphis, almost direct route to Graceland. About 10 easy miles from downtown. We camped at T. O. Fuller State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A very well kept park with easy access within park. Paved roads and pads. Shaded sites throughout campground. Great camp host with free tickets to Indian site next door. Electric and water were fine. Not a scrap of paper on the ground, and the dump station was clean. Convenient location. Very helpful and friendly staff. We'll be back for sure. We camped at T. O. Fuller State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful site, very peaceful place, good facilities, including laundromat - except the swimming pool was a bit down-at-heel with the showers only running scalding hot water and the changing area not very clean.

The visitor centre staff were extremely helpful. We camped at T. O. Fuller State Park in a Tent.

The campground had many old trees and very thick growth. It was beautiful. Campground was very quiet, but humidity was high during my stay. Sites were mostly level. Not many campers here when I stayed. There is also a public pool you can use on the grounds, but about a mile away from the campground. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I didn't go in the restrooms or showers. The laundry room was not up to par as far as I am concerned and I chose not to do my laundry there. We camped at T. O. Fuller State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

I spent a little time in Memphis, but I was only here for a few days. I was a little disappointed with some sections of the city. Very run down, many buildings deserted. I didn't get to go to any museums and I heard they were nice. The roads in Tennessee are some of the worst I have seen so far. Even the interstate had huge potholes. Not good when you're pulling a fifth wheel. I ended up having a flat tire on my truck during my stay here and had to replace the tire.

I did go to the Chucalissa indian mounds and exhibit in the park near the campground. It was interesting and a free pass is included with your stay.

I tried to go to Graceland and was disappointed and turned around. They want $10 to park and $30 to get in the building. Not to mention you would have to wait for two hours in the heat. No thanks.

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. We camped at T. O. Fuller State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
