I have at many Cracker Barrel's, but if you're asking about a specific one near Graceland, than no. Generally, if it has designated RV parking they are okay with one night stays. I airways ask and I either eat dinner or breakfast there. Sometimes both. I never leave a mess, put my slides out, or look like I'm homesteading.

The first cracker barrel on I-40 just east of downtown does not have overnight parking and the lot is tight. The next one out does. It's 5-6 miles further down I-40. Cracker Barrel in West Memphis and the one southeast on Hwy385 both have RV parking.

We stayed at Graceland RV park, right across the street from the mansion. Wonderful park, friendly people. We felt comfortable and secure. Memphis isn't the best place, in some areas.

As others have said, a little farther from the city would probably benefit you better. Go have a meal and ask for the manager. Otherwise, Wal-Marts are near by as well.

I use Tom Sawyer RV park in West Memphis. Great look of the Mississippi River. Then, drove the toad car to Graceland.

Stayed at Cracker Barrels last Thursday and one night the week before. Always have dinner and/or breakfast (carryout during Covid). Use RV Parky to see which ones allow overnight parking. Managers are always welcoming.

But it's overnight only - not meant to used during the day.

I agree, Tom Sawyer RV Park is wonderful. You do have to drive through some pretty sketchy West Memphis neighborhoods to get there but, once there, it was a great stay.

There is a RV friendly Flying J at I 55 and I 40 in west Memphis.

They allow overnight RV stays away from the truck parking spots.

Download the Pilot / Flying J app for your phone.

Funny story:
A couple years ago we stopped overnight at a CB along I-65 near Nashville. We always eat dinner there when we overnight and sometimes breakfast.

Anyway, the next morning I walked over to the restaurant when it opened to buy a large coffee. The waitress took my order and when it came I pulled a crumpled up dollar bill out of my hoodie pocket to pay. She gives me a look and a smile and says, "that's ok, hon. Have a great day."
I wondered why she would give me a free coffee...until I got back to the motorhome and looked in the mirror.

Yonder, if you can go around those neighborhoods using the road around them. You can avoid them. You can get to this road using the same exit of Flying J but instead turning left, you turn right, it takes you to this road. That's what I do twice a year when driving from WI to TX and back.

Another vote for Graceland RV Park.

I would pay the money and stay at Graceland RV Park. It has 24 hour security. The area around Graceland is a little sketchy. We have stayed there several times.

We wanted to see Graceland the day after our stay at the RV park. We were allowed to park our RV for free in the big Graceland parking lot. Normally you would have to pay. It's also a short walk from the RV park to the Graceland Ticket and Bus area.

Regards, Jerry
