There are a couple of COE CG's in the Nashville area, check their website or RVParkReviews.com.

www.CorpsLakes.us - Corps Lakes Gateway

You will need to use the toad to get into the city. Also, make sure to visit the Broadway area in the city and all the Honky Tonks along it. The General Jackson also might be of interest. We caught a really good show on a lunch cruise. Nashville is one of our favorite cities to visit.

We just left Nashville last week and always stay at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park. It's in the $50 range, but it's the closest park to the Opry area (just down the street from KOA. We've stayed there 4 or 5 times and really like it. You might find a more inexpensive park, but the drive to "things to do" is longer. The park will arrange a bus to pick you up and bring you back from the Opry for $5.00 each....well worth it.
Enjoy the trip, We did!!

We stayed at Countryside Resort to the east of Nashville in Lebanon. $27.00 a night and a short drive into Nashville. Very nice.

In the Memphis area, consider staying just across the river at Tom Sawyer's CG. Go to Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River RV Park and take a look. You will be right on the banks of the Mississippi River. I do mean right on the river bank. This is the only place we stay when in the Memphis area.

Try the graceland rv park across the street from Graceland mansion on Elvis Presleyboulevard. By all means, don't miss BB KINGS rib place in Memphis on Beale st.

We stayed at the Graceland RV park a few years ago.

You want to try Rendezvous Ribs on a back alley by the Peabody Hotel. Ask any cabbie to take you there.

The BEST dry rub ribs I have ever tasted!

We stayed at 2 Rivers Campground in Nashville. KOA and Yogi Bear are next door. I'd say if you want to concern yourself with connivence and location choose one of these. Price ought to be as good a deciding point as any at these 3.

We also stayed in Memphis at Tom Sawyer about 3 or 4 weeks ago. It was OK. It is not inconvenient to downtown Memphis and not awfully far from Graceland. But is is DUSTY. And I don't think are many amenities.

As for Graceland campground in Memphis, I took a look at it while visiting Graceland. It looks like just a parking lot. it is convenient to Graceland, but that's it; it isn't as convenient to downtown (Beale St.) as Tom Sawyer.

Check RVPARKREVIEWS.com and make your mind up.

Nashville Campground

We ended up staying at the Jellystone Nashville. Very clean and well laid out. all sites are pull through. BUT for > $50 a night there could have been more to do there. No activities at all. BUT if anyone ever is in Tunica PLEASE do yourself a favor and stay at Harrahs camp ground $15 a night 50 amp full hookups pull through sites lots to do there besides the casino great club house, horseshoes, basketball ect. Only down side is no shoping for food or other items needed so stock up before...We are now in south Florida for the winter. Ramblers rest in North port.. seems to be lots here campground is average...


Thanks to all

The Fords

There will be nothing inexpensive close to Opryland. We have stayed at the Two Rivers CG twice. They have tickets to just about everything going on in the area with tours starting and stopping right there at the office or the tour bus location right next door. Not on their advertisement is the huge Bass Pro Shop just a couple of miles away.

The picture below was taken from the back of the office looking down into the RV parking area.

We normally visit Memphis via tour vans from the Tunica, MS gambling playground. We have found that the tours from the Hollywood Casino are the easiest and most rewarding. They leave and return right from the RV Park office. The last one we took was an all day event which included lunch on Beale Street.

The first picture is of the Hollywood Casino RV parking area and the next is of the little café where we had lunch on our Memphis tour.

I have reservations for Harrahs Tunica for next weeek for three days. They always comp us. My wife won't even get out of the car at Graceland. Why do you think they have guards at the RV park across the street?

Stayed in the KOA two nites in Nashville last year.. Never again.

PS Paula Deans can't be beat. I'm going to die anyway.
