Campgrounds On the Mississippi

Besides Tom Sawyer's Campground in West Memphis, AR, are there any nice campgrounds right on the river that accommodate Big Rigs? Tom Sawyer's is a good spot for an overnight stay where you can relax and watch the barges pass by.

Across the river from Natchez in Vidalia La., Rivier View, over looks the river. Nice campground and can accommodate large rigs. It is Passport America.

We spent several days in April 2011 at the following RV park and loved watching all the action on the River. I think you will enjoy it.

Have been to river view twice and a great experience. You can sit in the spa and watch the barges. Have fun.

Warfield Point Park near Greenville, MS is another good choice. It is a county or state park if I recall and very inexpensive. If you visit this park, may I suggest that you go to Doe's Eat Place for quite a dining experience. This is also a great area for the History of the Blues.

We have also stayed at River View and it is excellent. If a river view is not necessary we also found that the Natchez State Park outside of Natchez is a very good option. Lots to do in Natchez.

Don't know how you feel about casinos but Lady Luck casino in Caruthersville, MO has a decent RV park. Good security, clean, $20 a night, full hookups. We've stayed there twice overnight on the way south, once when it was Aztar Casino and last month on the way back from Mississippi.
The casino is on the river, the park is next to the casino and there is a nature trail, I think. Good value for the money. Decent restaurant too. Nice bathroom building with private showers; we didn't use them but would if we stayed there longer than 1 night.
Bring something to cover your bedroom windows at night because the place is lit up like the launch pad at Cape Canaveral. The birds were singing at 2am!

I'm not sure if the OP was talking about just the Memphis area or not. But the COE has lots of CG's along the river as well. Many are ok for large rigs but the sites are usually backin's so no big trailers. There are also lots of county CG's as well. Both are very reasonable. And we agree about the comment on all the great river towns along the way. Muscatine IA, Quad cities, Bellevue IA, Potosi WI (home of the national beer museum) and lots of others in between. Going up or down the river is a great trip.
