11 Parks near Mid-South Naval Support Activity, Tennessee
May 2016 - $21.00
We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed the stay. The ride up 51 is a little long with the traffic lights and traffic, but getting on base through the Singleton Ave gate is easy. Once you're through the gate, it's only a couple of quick right turns to the park. There is a mailbox at the entry of the park with site and check in information. We were not greeted by the camp host, so we just went to the back and picked an empty site.
The layout makes it very easy to back in, but be careful of your rear stabilizers as there is a decent hill entering each site. Sites are concrete and more than big enough for any size rig. Not a whole lot of shade throughout the park. Utilities were fine and no issue with placement of hookups. WiFi worked well, no cable, but plenty of over the air channels. Many long term residents had satellite dishes out, so looks like a clear line of sight for that. The laundry has two new washers and two new dryers that are free. The laundry/bathhouse is clean and we'll kept.
My only complaint is the requirement of checking in with the camp host then having to go to the rec office across base to pay for the site. Seems redundant to me.
All in all it is a very nice park, even though we don't plan on returning to Memphis, we would stay there again if passing through. - pfogleboch

Best place we've camped in yet! Free excellent wifi, free laundry, full hookups, spacious sites, all base services (commissary, NEX, package store, gym, etc). The south gate is closed on weekends and nonbusiness hours (not mentioned on website) but you can get in the main gate on Navy Road. They also need instructions on how to use those beautiful new eco friendly washers. All in all, this is a great campground for the money. - Melodycthomas

One of the best of 18 military base campgrounds we've visited this year.
Very easy in/ out of the base via the south gate. Great sites, level and plenty of room to get into the site. Easy walk to the commissary.
New washers and dryers.
No CG rec room/ area.
Typical military base services. Friendly staff at all locations.
We will be back to spend a week or more for an extended visit to Memphis. - PawPaw

This is a very beautiful park with lots of outdoor activities. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The campground sites are heavily wooded with lots of shade. Water pressure was very good at 60 lbs. Most sites on the interior loop seemed fairly level. All sites are paved pads, but most are built-up to make them semi-level and this causes a large step down to the unpaved area. The fire rings, picnic table and grill are mostly located to the rear of the sites.
There is absolutely no cell phone/data service at the park. We were OK with this, just be aware. The downside to this heavily wooded campground is the large mosquito population. Using mosquito spray did not seem to affect them, they came in droves. Opening the camper door briefly to get in or out resulted in a hunting expedition for the numerous mosquitoes that came in. The mosquitoes also invaded the bathrooms/showers. This required a dance to swat and shower. - GA Bob

This is a beautiful state park about 25 minutes NW of Memphis. Our site (#25) was very large. All sites are heavily treed so I could not use my satellite. I got a decent selection of channels with the antenna. All interior roads in this 13,000 acre park are paved as are the parking slabs. To make the slab level the blacktop is raised about six inches above the rest of the site so that was a bit awkward. The park is on the Mississippi River although the drive to the boat ramp/river took 20 minutes. Also 20 minutes away (within the park) was a beautiful lake. There was no phone signal within the park on my Verizon iPnone and wifi is only available at the park office and parking lot in front of it. - RVerMJ

This is a very quiet park that is several miles from anything. Besides hiking and relaxing, there isn't a whole lot to do at this park as the river is several miles away. The bathrooms were clean but could really use some updating. Just a few dollars worth of stall locks that lock and shower curtains that stay in place would make a big difference. Hanging your towel on a horizontal round peg is hard - how about some two dollar towel hooks that actually hold a towel! Note that there is some sort of pump right at Site 32 that makes a loud clicking noise several times when turning on. I recommend NOT CAMPING at or near Site 32 due to this noisy pump. The voltage at my site was pretty good. It would have been nice if the dirt and pavement at our site was at the same level so we didn't have such a large step when exiting the RV. Not all sites have this issue. Overall, this is a very nice and scenic park that is great for relaxing. - tundracamper

This is a old campground. They have some nice long pull-through sites that allow big rigs to stay hooked up. They have 50 Amp full hookups available. AT&T and Verizon work well. Some have clear sky for satellite set up. Restrooms are dated but clean. No train or highway noise. No free WiFi. Internal roads and pads are gravel and grass. Sites are well spaced but untidy, grass not cut, leaves not raked. Easy on/off I-40 about 2 miles. This is an old KOA that is now an old mobile home park with 18 pull-through sites in the middle of a 100+ old mobile homes. But having said that it is very quiet and safety is not an issue. Will stay again for one night. - TedandJan

As other reviewers have said, this is part mobile home park and part campground. The mobile home part was neat, clean, and quiet. Registration was closed when we arrived and several maps were left out for us to choose a site - not the most convenient situation. It was dark and the roads were not well marked so we had to walk around with a flashlight to find a place to park. When we went to the office in the morning to check out and pay, the staff was friendly and helpful. Our site was long enough for our tow vehicle and 40'
fifth-wheel without unhitching. It was fairly level but definitely not very clean. Whomever camped there last left a mess and it wasn't cleaned up. We did not use the restrooms or showers but, with the poor condition of our site, I'm glad we are self-contained and didn't have to do so. We did get good television reception with the antenna. There are not many campgrounds in the area so we would probably stay there again if necessary but hopefully would arrive before dark to have some help picking our site and then finding it. - SandyA

Have camped here for about 4 weeks in the months of September and October. The campground is very quiet even though it is part of a mobile home park. Many permanent campers but their sites are pretty well maintained. The only negative about this campground is the maintenance of the grounds and restrooms. It appears that if you ask for something to be done concerning maintenance, they are willing to do it; however, you have to ask. Restrooms are not cleaned daily but are not nasty. The staff is friendly. This is about the only campground in the Memphis area that is worth staying. They just need to do more in the form of maintenance (mowing, dumping trash, and cleaning restrooms). The sites are large enough to accommodate my 40' 5th wheel. We would stay here again. - jjenkins58

Agricenter RV Park seems to exist primarily to have a place for camping for exhibitors and farm-to-market people while they participate in Agricenter activities. So, accordingly, there are not the full amenties of a campground -- no picnic table or firepit/grill -- but they do have two bathroom-showers, and a laundry room with 3 sets of washer/dryers. The sites are all a thin layer of gravel over dirt and mostly well drained. We had full hookups with no hiccups. We were there mid-week when nothing was going on, so many of the sites were empty. It looked to be about 1/4 full. There was room for my tow-car to sit to the side of the RV, so the sites were wide and long enough for most Class As. The hookups were together, so the RV next to us had to be pointed the opposite direction, but since all sites are essentially pull-through's, that wasn't an issue for them or for us. There were trash barrels at every other site, so, very close and a lot of them, which was nice. It's about 35-40 minutes (with no traffic) into Memphis from there. - RobtL

Large level sites, offered FHU, Wifi was great, no cable, access to storm shelter if needed. Convenient to shopping and restaurants, short drive to downtown Memphis. - Kathy and Rich
Mar 2016 - $25.00
Location. That's the advantage afforded by the Agricenter. It's convenient to every thing in the Memphis and Germantown area. If you want convenience and not beauty this is a perfect camp. Cost is reasonable. Our gravel site needed a lot of leveling. Neighbors are close. Only two showers. WIFI was good. Traffic is terrible so avoid rush hours. Camp host was friendly and helpful. No shade. Good signs to the camp. Full hook ups. I would stay again. - Raptor 7

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

A very nice park. Lovely area with a lot of amenities. We pulled in late last night and it was very nice that they had a cafe when we were too tired to cook. The pizza was delicious. You can tell that the owners care a great deal about keeping this park looking great! - cmiller

We would rate this KOA best we'd ever stayed at if it weren't for the mosquitoes! They were huge and traveling in battalions! There was just no fighting them. We don't know if the park is always like that or just because they had recently had rain, but they were more than we could take. The KOA workers and service was great and we wish we could have stayed. - LittleChilds

The staff were wonderful. Due to illness we had to leave and they waived the 48 hour cancellation policy. If you get a site near the back, you are a little further from the Interstate. Although some reviewers complained about the noise we had no problem with it. We did leave the fan on one A/C unit running full time, like we always do when near a highway, to create some "white noise". The 70' pull-through sites are nice and easy to get in and out of. - johnwadams

The RV Park at Graceland is very convenient to visiting Elvis Presley's home. The park was nicely tree-lined, clean and secure. If you are planning to go to Graceland, this really is the best accommodation option because it is within walking distance and you can come and go as you like throughout the day you buy your ticket. However, the pool is marginal, the grounds can be noisy and the neighborhood is on the seedy side. I would only stay there for the convenience of visiting Graceland. - PBW
Jun 2016 - $55.00
This place is average. Not the worst place we stayed but we wouldn't return for any reason. Very small campground with very narrow sites. No shade and no room for awnings. We saw a lot of loose dogs and dog poop. There didn't seem to be any enforcement of the rules. Avoid staying near the pool as it is LOUD. The picnic tables are located in a weird place and unless you want to dine under your neighbor's window, unusable. The staff was very slow and quite rude on the phone. Overpriced. The pink limo is fun, but unless you love Elvis you may find more bang for your buck elsewhere. - Kamnel

Tight spaces. Beware, everyone misses the entrance to the park and it is not easy to find a place to turn around on EP Blvd. Lots of construction at the entrance to the campground so it's distracting. Sites are very close. Bathrooms were deplorable. Walking distance to Graceland. - Sunshine Camper
Jul 2016 - $34.00
Stayed in a 40' class A motorhome on a river view site. It is pull thru with a concrete pad and long enough to straighten out to unhook the tow vehicle. There is barge traffic on the river night and day to keep one occupied. This is our favorite campground so a little biased. They pick up trash all day long placed in front of your rig. There are benches to sit on. It is a well maintained place and the staff is always helpful and friendly. It is pet friendly. We will be back.
Call in advance for a river view if that is what you want. Lots of sites available that are not on the front row though. - Travelall

Easy off easy on to I 40. Wide open spaces. Friendly staff, on the water. - lismow
Jul 2016 - $32.00
This is a clean, well maintained park. The staff is friendly. The sites are level and the park is designed for maximum visibility to the Mississippi River. They escort you to your site. They pick up trash several times a day. And they have been consistent over the many years we have been staying here. - Gator67

Well I made a reservation at the wrong place. For $5 more a night I could have stayed at a much nicer park. Full hook ups 50 amp , water sewer and a WiFi that is pretty good. Nice people here but park needs major work.
Site was fairly level and owner picked one to get good satellite but I don't think they know I need a clear shot due south and there is a big old beautiful oak tree right in the path. Good news pulled in 20 stations or so of antenna. I would not stay here again. - signaloil

This is an old park and it shows its age, but not in a bad way, just a little rough around the edges. The owners are very nice people. They compensate for the size of the sites by limiting occupation to every other site, which works well, giving every one a bit of grass and comfortable picnic table space and ample parking. Very dog friendly, with lots of nice walking and play areas. The neighborhood has its noisy moments, but it IS in town and I'm here on a weekend. - Spike in FL

Rate was for 3 Adults. Great location right there at Heartbreak Hotel and Graceland. Have stayed before and always chose this location to do our sightseeing. Good pool, excellent wi-fi but poor TV channels. Mens bathrooms were good but ladies showers were disgusting with sewer bugs flying around and grout all out of the tiles. A definite health risk. They need to be renovated immediately. Good laundry. Shuttle bus to town available from the Heartbreak Hotel. We stayed one week before Elvis Week so was busy with impersonators performing in the marquee by the Boulevarde. Great atmosphere. We stayed in 38ft motorhome with tow. - OzFrosty

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. - charles_from812

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. - JC Penny

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. - Bruce and Nena
