On the Mississipi

Nice size spaces with square table and benches, concrete pad, grass area view of the River (#91), across from bathhouse and laundry on the end of the row. Very accommodating manager made this stop a breeze! Would stay here again. Fun watching the traffic on the river.

How did I not know this was here?

Wow! What a great little campground. It is maintained very well. There is a great little playground for little ones. Easy access to fishing and water sports when the lake is up. When the lake is down, explore the lake bottoms. Sites on the back side of the loop are spaced out much more nicely than those on the front. All sites have a parking spot. No sewer hookup but the dump site is really close.

There are two pull through ADA sites. This is a hidden gem!

First to Review
Boondocking? This one might work

No hookups. Nothing. But, it is a free campground so what can you say. It’s rather nice there. This is a very small campground with about 5 spots. Large rigs are a no go I would think, as access can be tight. If you’re in a small to medium travel trailer or a tent, this could work out.

Bathrooms are there but bring your own paper.

Another bad one on the north side

It seems that all of the campgrounds on the north side of Sardis Lake are a let down. This place is bad. Permanent looking residents. Campers blocking roads. There was even a camper backed up to the wall of the restrooms. There is a closed down store there. Roads in are bad as well. Do yourselves a favor and stay on the south side.

Rough is too light of a word

Not sure what else to say. This place is rough. The app lists two campgrounds. Only one is here and it is not run by the COE. Most spots were empty. For the view you are looking across the street at a run down trailer park. Much better options on this wonderful lake.

The one good spot on this is the boat ramp and fish cleaning station. Granted, it’s closed right now, but they are very nice.

Well... you could camp here

This is a small campground, consisting of five tent sites. The websites states you can bring a small camper here, but in wouldn’t try it. The bathrooms are run down and have a port a potty feel. The roads in are horrible. There are people riding off road vehicles in the lake bottoms quite often.

Now, that having been said… the view is great. You can see out across the lake. There is plenty of space to hike and explore. It is a free campground, so really, one can’t complain.

Beautiful Campground

This is a beautiful campground. Sites are nestled in the woods and neighbors aren’t too close. Much of the campground is closed for winter right now, but the lack of a crowd just adds to the appeal.

Most sites have water and electrical hookups but no sewer. We did see at least one site that did not appear to have a water connection.

The dump site is not marked, but there is one. It is on the way out of the campground near the primitive campsites.

The primitive sites are amazing. Most overlook a small valley/bottom that allow for spectacular views and hiking.

If you are looking for someplace close to town, this isn’t your spot. It’s a bit of a hike to get back to it. Your GPS will tell you to take a back road, don’t. Go into Oxford and take Jackson Ave to North Oxford Loop. Much better roads this way.

Lovely River Park

Beautiful park right by the river. Friendly, helpful staff, free laundry, and even some small walking trails! The only downside was the second week of stay there was some sort of alarm that we kept hearing from somewhere down the river.

Forest Campground 20mins from Downtown Memphis

You really can't go wrong with Meeman-Shelby. It is so damn close to Memphis that while you won't feel like you are near an urban center, you benefit from its proximity. I very much appreciated being able to site see and camp during our brief overnight here. 

The campground itself is tucked away deep into the Meeman Shelby State Forest and offers a pleasant amount solitude even though the sites are fairly close together. We watched an super long RV struggle to back into their site, so I wouldn't recommend this campground to RVs that require pull through sites.

Not all sites are suitable for tent campers. I would call ahead to ask what sites to consider if booking online, or just show up. There are a lot of sites here and you'll find something.

The campground is not terrible even, so be prepared for that.

Can not beat the location

This campsite is in West Memphis, Arkansas right across the river from Memphis Tennessee. The sites are right on the river bank, beautiful. Sunrise over the river was perfect. Watching the tug boats moving up and down the river all day and night was relaxing. Nice little bath house and laundry in each section. Not many trees in the section I stayed, but still wonderful. The other two sections have many more trees if the is what you are looking for. No pool but there is plenty of fishing and tree houses for the kids. A little gem on the river.
