BTW, if you want some good ribs go to the Blues City Cafe and enjoy! They also have some good and free entertainment. Add to the Memphis experience.

We haved stayed at Graceland rv park. Nice and convenient but more expensive. Last stay was at T. O. Fuller state park. For 10.00$ we even had passes for their indian museum. Of course we are seniors. Only thing lacking is wifi

How is the security there? I know that you have to drive through a very "rough" area in order to get there, so my wife will not consider camping there.

Yes the surrounding area is less than desirable, however the security at the RV campground itself is very good. I had to check in with security before proceeding to the front office to register and check in. The city of Memphis is making it a priority to clean up that part of the city due to the large amount of visitors and the impression the area gives. I would have no problems camping there again and feeling safe.

I've stayed twice at Tom Sawyer's. I love being that close to the river. There isn't a lot in the immediate area though. But if you like watching the barges it is a great place!

A big recommendation for T O Fuller also. Very nice, clean, 20 minutes to downtown Memphis, and a very safe area.

There is a corps of engineers park south of Memphis in Mississippi - I don't remember how far south but at leat 20 miles or more from Memphis. Facility Details - HERNANDO POINT, MS - Recreation.gov Like most COE parks remote, quiet and very nice. You might want to consider this COE park unless you want to be close to Memphis, Graceland and other Memphis attractions.

We have used both Tom Sawyers and Jellystone several times and even though they are quite different, they are really very good campgrounds. Jellystone is probably closer to Graceland. When we were in Jellystone in January, my jacks were frozen to the ground after an ice storm and the pads stuck to the ground and I pulled the springs off as I retracted the jacks. The Jellystone hosts helped me get everything back together and on the road in 10 degree temps. Good people!

We stayed at Graceland RV park. Nice place , felt comfortable in the area. Looks like the city has really worked to make the area around Graceland better.
