You have a choice of two State campgrounds in the area. T.O. Fuller, it has about 30 sites, all have 30Amp electrical and water hook ups. They do have some with 50Amp. They have aprox 7 sites that are pull through. Some have length restrictions so you should book your stay online.

The other campground is Meeman Shelby state forest, it has approx. 40 sites all back in, all have 30 amp and water, cannot remember if any have 50amp, also have length restrictions, so book online.

www.tnstatesparks.com I think.

Not much for private campgrounds in the area. Of the two TO fuller is closer to down town, but Shelby is more forresty.

If there is anything else I can do for your, just let me know. I live in the area so I can scope a site in person to see if it meet your needs if you need me to.

We always stay at Tom Sawyer RV Park in West Memphis, AR.


Right on the Mississippi River.

Tom Sawyer can be a good place. Be sure to check with them before you arrive they have a flooding problem in the spring. Although because of all the rain recently in the mid west, I believe they're closed now. But it's a cool place to stay since it's right on the Mississippi river and you can watch the barges sailing up & down the waterway.

I work in Memphis and have brought my RV many times to Memphis in May. About 50% of the time Memphis in May can be soggy with spring rain. Be careful about using Tom Sawyer's RV park in West Memphis, AR as it floods easily in the springtime.

I usually stay at Memphis Jellystone RV park in Horn Lake, MS. The campground is much nicer and there is more to do in the way of shopping or dining nearby. It is 15 mins drive up I55 to Memphis in May and the campground is fine during big rains. Every site has a large concrete pad. It is the nicest CG in Memphis.

We are coming through Memphis in early June and staying at Meeman Shelby Forest State Park. Reasonable and looks like nice sites.

Considered TO Fuller, but saw it was near railroad tracks on busy line.

I also used to live in MEM and agree with Dave, Jellystone in Horn Lake is definitely the nicest park in the area and no problems with the rain.
Easiest way there is I-55 South to Church rd. turn right to hwy 51 about two miles, turn right on 51 to the campground on the right about a mile or so.
They are also a passport America park. Unusual for such a nice park.

Jellystone is much nice imho and like I said it's a passport America park.
Most of MEM moved to Germantown, Olive Branch, and Horn Lake.
