“Clean and Accommodating”

We stayed here based on RV Parky reviews and really appreciated the break from our coast to coast drive. It was maybe 20 minutes drive off of I-40...and as others mention, through some typical city views. However we arrived in the dark and never felt uncomfortable. Also, based on other reviewers' advice, we followed the park signs, not the GPS. It noted to turn left at the 4 way stop sign after turning off the main street and going through a relatively tidy neighborhood. Instead, we went straight and followed the well placed, brown T.O. Fuller State Park signs. The camp ground is past the visitor's center, down the hill and to the right- all very well marked. We pulled our 37' travel trailer into our site, a fairly level paved site, next to a class A and easily set up with 50 amp service, again- in the dark and had no trouble. The bath house, clearly constructed many years ago, is more than adequate. Being able to take hot showers in December is worth the price of admission alone. Other reviews mention a stench. We didnt smell it at the camp ground, but leaving in the morning we did catch a whiff of what could be river mud since it is right next the river. Over all, a great find for a much needed road weary refresh. Thanks for the good advice and accurate reviews!

We stayed on site 35.


Absolutely adored our stay here. The location was just beautiful and the camp host was most helpful. The showers were a great pressure and really hot. I always wear flip flops in the shower so they were no bother to me but I dare say some others may wish they were a bit cleaner. 

“Really sweet place”

We chose this park based on reviews and we were not disappointed. It is lovely... Wooded and quiet, with clean facilities. One bonus was having the Camp Host, Robert, explain the history of the park, including that role Thomas Fuller played in gaining access to all public spaces for African Americans in the 30's. Out was very interesting and we appreciated Robert taking the time to share the information. One additional bonus was the senior discount which brought the cost of our stay to less than $20.

“Wonderful surprise”

We were staying in Memphis and decided to skip the Graceland area RV parks, they really just left us longing for more.. So we chose this park and I'm so glad we did! We arrived after hours and drove straight in (By the way, the directions here will lead you to the visitors center, not the campsite - just follow the signs). There were several very nice paved pads, both pull thru and back in sites, a wonderful playground and immaculate showers/restrooms. There was a Pepsi vending machine, laundry and ice machine on site. I felt bad because several sites were reserved for the whole weekend when there was obviously no one coming. Maybe only about 6 others there. Plenty of space between. Plenty of privacy. Very quiet and very clean. We didn't take advantage of the trails or swimming pool but will add this place to our favorites to come back to again!

“Nice surprise!”

Arrived after office hours. Beautiful facility.  Greeted by host. Paid a modest fee for the night. Very private and surrounded by woods. Does not feel like we are so close to a city.

“Was really nice park. Clean bathrooms and well cared for. Stayed at handicap spot 33, leavel black top pad and concrete patio area ”


“Good for one night stay”

Bedded down for one night stay. Sites have slight incline on concrete pads. No sewer hookup,  but site has a dumping station. Pretty good for $28.00.

“Very nice”

Big beautiful trees and nicely placed spaces. Clean shower house, level surface, and very friendly camp host.
We were here one night and decided not to sit outside because the mosquitoes like this area as well.

“Older Park, but nice”

This was a nice park not far from Graceland, which was the reason for our stop.  While some of the housing districts we drove through were a little worn down we had no problems at all.  There were two sections, and we stayed in the first portion, with pull through sites.  We had water and electric hookup, dump station as you leave the park.  The park host was very nice and helpful.  Our spot was level and we had a decent Verizon signal.

“Good park, bad smell”

The park is pretty and the people are friendly. Is clean and has a nice little playground for the kids. But man does it stink! If you like sitting around outside, I hoe you like sewer swamp smell!

“Not scary at all! Nice!”

At first the idea of camping in Memphis made me a little Leary, however arriving at 7:30 pm and seeing the ample spaces, clean sites and bathrooms, it was a given.  We paid the next morning with the nice attendants at the visitor center.  A great rate and decent facilities.  Don't miss this one!
