“Good Overnight spot”

When I got to the lot across from the store, the security guard was sitting in his car. I asked if was OK to stay the night. He said said yes and asked which is mine and he would keep an eye on it. Has dinner in the Pyramid and slept well. I didn't think it was too loud and was comfortable.

“Loved downtown Memphis! But, very noisy parking lot!”

Reviewed Oct 13, 2018

Overall Rating

The parking lot at Bass Pro is noisy. It's directly under an overpass and the wompa wompa wompa of big trucks passing overhead continued all night. The lot is fairly level and there is good ATT and Verizon service being so close to downtown Memphis. Access to and from the parking lot from I-40 couldn't be much easier. There didn't seem to be any special RV parking designated or stripped. You can sorta park in shade of the overhead interstate but you might not be in shade an hour later.
We'd heard about the Bass Pro Shop pyramid and felt like we needed to see it for ourselves. I have to say, I was a little disappointed in the store itself. We had a few things on our list we were ready to buy but found their camping section to be pretty average or below. I realize they're all about fishing and hunting, but still. However, if you're just going to see the spectacle, it's pretty impressive. First and second floors have shopping but also a pond with some really large catfish and another with alligator gars. Oh, and there are actual alligators, too. Of course, they have all the taxidermy animals we've come to expect at these kinds of stores. Above the showroom floor, you can get a hotel room with a balcony that faces into the store. There's an elevator to an outside observation deck ($10 per person), an aquarium that's large enough that a scuba diver hand feeds the fish while giving a presentation to the crowd twice a day, and there's a restaurant.
When you turn onto Bass Pro Drive, you'll pass a visitor center that's just a couple of blocks before the parking lot. You're also within a 1/2 mile from downtown Memphis and lots of options for food, shopping or just walking. If you don't want to walk, there are electric stand-up scooters everywhere that you can rent for $1 plus 15 cents per minute.
We walked about 1.5 miles to the somewhat famous Central BBQ. Nearby is the Lorraine Motel where Martin Luther King was assassinated. The Lorraine is now a museum and has been preserved much the way it was on that day. In the parking lot there are several video kiosks that describe events leading up to that day. There's a large wreath on the balcony marking the spot where Martin Luther King was standing. It was chilling, to say the least, to be standing in the parking lot in front of that balcony.
Bottom line: Bass Pro Shops was a good stop for overnight even with the noise. I highly recommend ear plugs even though that really wasn't enough.
