If you're heading to Memphis, and especially if you're visiting Graceland, this is the park to stay at with an RV. Most are pull-through level sites with the advantage of gated security (a "must" here, in my opinion) located directly behind the Heartbreak Hotel. Yes, sites are a little close together, but you're here for the tours and Beale Street, not ambiance. Great location for visiting Graceland, can't say that enough! With just a quick stroll across a parking lot, a pedestrian bridge, then to the main entrance to purchase your ticket(s), this campground makes it a hunka burnin' love easy maneuver. Shuttle buses then take you from the front of Graceland's ticket office to Elvis' home (the Holy Grail of Fandom!) directly across the street. There's also museums, archived films, shops and restaurants in the complex near the ticket office for you to decide on what level of Elvis fix you truly desire.
The campground also has the convenience of hopping a shuttle to downtown at the front of the Heartbreak Hotel, compliments of Sun Studios with a required purchase of a ticket for their tour. In the evening for a small fee, you can also catch a shuttle to downtown Memphis courtesy of the Heartbreak Hotel. Downside is the hotel shuttle stops running after 11:00 pm, so you're on your own getting back to the hotel/RV park after that.
Showers at the park put out good pressure, but the stalls were tight and lacked a shelf or bench to place shower supplies, a minor point for some, but frustrating for many of us perennial campers expecting a little more convenience. Noise level at the campground overall was pretty quiet considering Memphis is a superhub for FedEx Global flights leaving the airport located not too far away.
While location for this park is paramount, just a heads-up when you do leave - be aware...this isn't an easy place to exit. The traffic on Elvis Presley Blvd. can be brutal, and most campers will be heading north to the bypass, which means a left turn across a four lane highway. There is NO traffic signal at the campground exit, so you may have a wait depending on time of day. Just sayin'.
