11 Parks near Millington, Tennessee

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

Spent two weekend nights. Concrete pads, patios and roads in excellent repair. Much shade and grass well groomed. Found commissary gate closed now Sat and Sun. Onsite staff very friendly and helpful. Very pleased that they have added free wifi. Have enjoyed every stay here over the years. - Vdsavell

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

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

Big, big park. In conjunction with agricenter and food court. Liked the area and location. Only stayed overnight but would stay there again. In fact, we tried to make reservations for our return trip but they had a fair that was coming to the grounds and were not taking reservations. - Alamo_GQ88310

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

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

I'm not at all sure why this KOA only rates a 7. It's one of the better parks I've utilized on this cross-country journey. It is clean, well treed with amply spaced and adequate length individual sites. The hosts were friendly and helpful. The BBQ was good (although the portions for the sides were more than a bit small). Wi-Fi signal is strong with fast internet access. Even in the prime evening hours access to Google Maps was quick. I was able to view a couple of Youtube videos also. Gnats were a distraction in the evening. There are rice fields nearby that can harbor mosquitoes, but the park has a great many Purple Martin nest boxes to help combat these pests. The park is a reasonable distance from the various attractions in Memphis itself and there is a shuttle bus service available for those that do not wish to drive their own vehicle. The park is a good overnight stop and/or a place to stay for a few days while enjoying the areas attractions. - Retired-n-Roamin

This is a very nice campground. There is lots of well kept grass, mature trees, and sizeable level sites. It is an easy drive to downtown Memphis. The office staff was very nice and helpful. The only downside is the truck noise from the close highway and the train whistles from the nearby tracks. We kept the air-conditioners on at night so they didn't impact our sleep. We would definitely return here. - Dapper

The park advertised free cable TV. I stopped as I wanted to watch the football game. The cable TV channels were limited, quality was good, but they did not have the channel for the game. Was escorted to my site by park personnel. Site was clean, table, but no fire ring. Was not a good value for the nightly fee charged of $47.00. Food service is available for evening meal and breakfast. - Sunchaser v

We were right on the river and our section was free of trees, so we had good satellite TV access (this would not be true of riverside sites in the other section). Utilities worked well, although we did get one brief electrical alarm. WIFI worked well most of the time with our signal amplifier. There were several times, though, when bandwidth hogs prevented access. - ramblin' vagabonds

Big rig friendly with level sites and easy access from I40 or I55. Beautiful view of Mississippi River from many sites. No dog park but large field to walk dog. Campground had the best laundry of any campground we have visited and they were free. Showers were large with hot water and pressure. The roads were crushed rock making our Rv and truck very dirty. - Fulltimersrv

This was an overnight stay for us on our way West. The CG is a few miles from the highway - not too far. Use the directions provided by the CG, not your gps. Our site was a pull through that was spacious and level with a view of the Mississippi River. There is plenty of space to walk along the river bank, sit on a bench, and watch the commercial traffic go buy. It's a great spot to spend a few days and visit Memphis if you are so inclined. West Memphis - not so much.
We would certainly stay here again. - SchnoodleCamp

This campground is perfect for visiting Graceland. Pool was clean. Water pressure was ok. Power was bad. At least twice the power went out on our row only. Front desk was little help when it happened after maintenance left for the night. Finally got fixed but couldn't leave the camper long because you couldn't trust the pets would be cooled. Campground has a security check point on way in. - SouthernMdtravelers

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

This State Park was OK with exception of the site assigned to us was very rough and not level. We did move after getting permission but since the park was only 25% full we felt they could have put us in a decent site to start with. The bathrooms and showers were not good and this is probably due to not being kept up but also a real lack of attention by the camp host. We would think twice about staying there again. - Stan from idaho

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
