“For a private RV park, it's quite nice!”

Reviewed Aug 22, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed for two weeks and found this to be one of the nicer private campgrounds we've stayed at. Sites were a decent size, there were several giant open fields and even some "trails" mowed through grassy or wooded areas, great for longer dog walks. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, from the office to the lawnmowers. We we... more

“A bit off the beaten path but fun to watch the river traffic”

Reviewed May 20, 2017

Overall Rating

Rather strange route to get here. You pass through a rundown part of town, cross over railroad tracks, and dive down a hill. It's not apparent that you are heading in the right direction but eventually you see the entrance to the park. We waited a few minutes for someone to come over to the office as they were running around the campgr... more

“Camping by the river.”

Reviewed May 14, 2017

Overall Rating

Stayed here 4 nights. Loved watching the barges going by. Loved that the older section of the campground had trees. The campground restrooms could use a refresh, but they were adequate and private. Access to the city was easy, about ten minutes. Liked the fact that it felt like it was off the beaten path.

“Passing through”

Reviewed Apr 15, 2017

Overall Rating

Wanted to add that half of the park was just passing through for the night. This is an excellent option for passing through. We've heard, read and seen that Memphis is a rough area. This park is out of the way and safe. What I loved was that it was easy to call ahead and reserve a spot when we were only an hour away. Keep in mind that ... more

“I Normally Hate RV Parks, but Tom Sawyers is Just About Perfect!”

Reviewed Jan 25, 2017

Overall Rating

This is just a really cute RV park along the banks of the Mississippi. We snagged the one and only back-in site that is down in the waterfront loop, although that wasn't hard as there was plenty of availability on the Friday in January that we visited. The folks running the park were unbelievably kind and made us feel very welcome. ... more

Reviewed Jan 04, 2017

Stayed one night. Unisex bath/shower rooms were dated, but clean and private. Had a spot right by the Mississippi River. Temperature dropped below freezing but the bath/shower room was nice and toasty. Would like to see what it looks like in the summer.

I can see why so many others rated this as a 5-star park. It's right on the Arkansas river, spacious sites, quality hookups, free laundry, usable wifi and friendly stay, all for $35 per night. Fun to watch the ships pass on the river from your campsite. Not many downsides to this campground, although I suppose if you're expecting to sw... more

Easy access to Memphis, downtown right across the bridge. The RV sites along the river are great and each has a tree for a little shade level with full hook ups. A combination of some cement sites and gravel ones all level. Did I mention FREE laundry! Yes FREE! Clean bathrooms and good showers. We would stay here again in a heart ... more

“Great for river watching”

Reviewed Mar 03, 2016

People stay here for the campground's proximity to the Mississippi River. We stayed on a concrete pad in the front row next to the river and really enjoyed it. Management is nice. FREE laundry was a bonus. Wifi worked well most of the time (although the park was only 10% full). OTA television worked fine. No playgrounds for kids.... more

This was a very nice park and experience. We were running late for check in (6:00PM), and were surprised that they called us to verify we were still coming and ETA so that they could wait for us. Upon arrival, we were greeted and guided to our site by a nice man that helped me pull the trailer to line up with the hookups. Everything... more

“A perfect spot along the Mississippi to relax and watch the barges.”

Reviewed Jul 01, 2015

Overall Rating

This is the perfect water front park with amazing views of the Mississippi River and the many barges that travel the river. Several sites sit with full river view. Sites are long pull thru gravel or concrete. While the sites are fairly close together, the angle of the sites gives each a larger area for sitting outside in the front o... more

We spent two nights in a waterfront gravel site with our 38' motorhome. Watching the barges is kind of addicting, it is amazing how large they are. Being here in February, there weren't many other campers in the area. Laundry is FREE - we definitely took advantage of that. You might hear the barges at night, and you'll definitely h... more

“Great RV C/G on the Miss. River looking across at downtown Memphis, TN”

Reviewed Jan 27, 2015

West Memphis is a little rough around the edges, but the C/G is by itself, remote from WM and delightful on the River. Bis sites, lots of room, free laundry and just off the river bridge and major highways. No noise. We arrived running from a major storm so everything was flooded in the C/G. Wind, standing water and we were glad to ... more
