Nashville and Memphis in Summer

We are spending a few nights in both Nashville and Memphis next summer. Looking for recommendations for a CG. We like being near lakes or rivers and don't necessarily need full hookups. We might try and dip into Arkansas while staying in Memphis to clip off another state on our states camped map! thanks. Kevin

Can't really help you with Memphis but I just camped at Bledsoe Creek State Park near Nashville. It's a very nice campground on a decent size lake. It is about 40 minutes east of Nashville. It also has lots of deer that are not bashful about coming right into your campsite Got any questions I'll answer best I can.

We like 7 Points COE park in Hermitage, TN. We have stayed there twice, and plan to go again next spring. When we visited Memphis, we stayed at Tom Sawyer's Campground in West Memphis, AR. It is along the Mississippi River. You can watch the barges travel up and down the river. Both are very nice campgrounds.

Stayed here a week outside to Nashville. Easy driving to anywhere in the Nashville area.https://tnstateparks.com/parks/campg...ars-of-lebanon

We went during Springbreak and the COE campgrounds were closed. The COE campgrounds at Nashville looked very good. Make reservations as soon as you can.

For Memphis, we really love staying at Tom Sawyer RV Park in West Memphis, AR. It's right on the Mississippi River. But it is RV park-like with not a lot of vegetation between spots. But we've always been pleased with it and love watching the big boats drive by.








For Nashville, we like a place that's about 45 minutes outside of the city called Montgomery Bell State Park in Burns, TN. Beautiful state park and you can get really nice water+electric spots that back up to the creek. The full hookup spots are much cozier.

Just stayed at Cedars of Lebanon SP a few weeks ago. Convenient to Nashville and a nice campground as long as you are in areas 2 or 3. Didn't like area 1.

Bass Pro Shop

If youíre in Memphis you need to visit the Bass Pro Shop in Memphis on the river.

Itís a 25 story gold glass pyramid that was built as a basketball area. There is 110 room hotel on the second level, several restaurants. Boats floating in ponds with large fish in the water. Itís an amazing place. Not to be missed. Biggest gun shop I have ever seen.

If youíre up for it visit the Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville Ar. It was built by Alice Walton...(daughter of Sam Waltonó-Walmart). Itís amazing what art billions of dollars will buy. Itís free and has a great restaurant too.

The Walmart museum downtown is pretty neat.

Smile Tom Sawyer RV Park

We stayed at Tom Sawyer RV Park this past summer, it is in West Memphis, AR.
Minutes from downtown Memphis, TN. right on the Mississippi River. Thought the park was nice (Full hook-up) and close to attractions.

We've stayed an West Memphis Tom Sawyer a couple of times and I agree with everyone else, it's a nice place to stay if your visiting Memphis.

For Nashville we like to stay at Two Rivers Campground Nashville. It's a GoodSam park and they have entertainment nightly on the deck that's at the back of the Office building. The entertainment was really good for 2 of the 3 nights we were there. They also offer free shuttle service to Music Row, downtown and the Grand Ole Opry. The grounds are just fair/ok but the campground is very convenient to the freeway and it's also next door to Camping World. We would stay there again.

Love Bledsoe State Park. Sites are level, mostly pull thru and run parallel to the woods and hiking trails. Deer are plentiful and aren't afraid to come pretty close.

I spent some time during the summer in both Memphis and Nashville.

Hard to recall a place where I sweated more Even my shoes were soaked from the sweat running down my legs. Played golf on the Hermitage President's Reserve golf course outside of Nashville while there. Humidity is so high they have large "Barn Fans" mounted on poles to keep the greens from being taken over by moss, mildew, and mushrooms

Beautiful course though. Was built on (or next to) President Jackson's plantation "The Hermitage".

A fantastic course but I'd recommend it in more "temperate" weather.
