Place to stay if you are visiting Graceland
We decided to do the Natchez Trace and it took us back through Memphis on the way back to Texas. No way could we go through Memphis w/o visiting Graceland. We chose to stay at the Memphis - Graceland RV Park because of it's proximity to Graceland and the fact we had dogs, that we wanted to be able to check on during the tour. You couldn't ask for a more convenient park...it's right across the parking lot from Graceland, so no need to get a car or unhook your tow vehicle. One thing that concerned me/us (2 women) was most reviews for Memphis area RV parks talk about how unsafe the areas are. I have pretty good "spidey senses" and inside the park, neither of us felt the least unsafe. We didn't get that feeling one gets when there is something "off". That may have been a different story had we left the park to walk around, but we had no reason to. We just walked to Graceland and back a couple of times across the parking lot.
We called ahead that morning (early June) and had no trouble getting a site for 2 nights. We were lucky, because there had been storms a week or two before that knocked out the phones in the area, and they had just come back online the day we called. Other than the staff being understandably frantic and busy trying to catch up returning a gazillion calls and emails, they were professional. The camp store was well appointed with drinks, snacks and Elvis souvenirs. We had a concrete pull through site with full hook-ups, bounded by a little bit of grass. It was level enough that we didn't use our leveling blocks. Our neighbors were pretty close, enough that our dogs, on 15' leads, had to be managed to stay off their utility side. Other than that, it wasn't an issue. The interior streets were easy to navigate so big rigs shouldn't have a problem. There is a nice pool and the restrooms were clean. We did not use the showers, so I can't comment on them.
At one end of the property, there is a large, grassy field (easily an acre and a half) with fences on the perimeter. We let our dogs off leash to run and wrestle so they could burn off some energy after being inside our RV for so many hours. It was really nice to have that option for us and for them.
We had a clear view to the south (smallish trees), so our satellite dish was able to connect. We did not use the wifi as we have a hotspot and our Verizon and AT&T cell phones worked just fine.
We spend big bucks to take the (new) Ultimate VIP Tour at Graceland (~$159/person, no AAA discount allowed). It was WELL worth it because we had a private tour guide who took us on our own shuttle bus and we never had to wait in lines. They limit the # of people at once to 6 (I think), but we were the only 2 with our own guide. We selected the Ultimate VIP tour more for the no lines and private tour guide than the free meal or special VIP experience (which was taking us into a small room and letting us see a few of his personal items as well as hold his gold microphone). I highly recommend that if your budget allows. We didn't do much spending on this trip, as it was mostly enjoying the scenery along the Trace, so we were able to justify the expense. It was really nice and I'd do it again. Neither of us were/are big Elvis fans, but appreciate what he meant to the music industry and history in general. Seeing Graceland, taking the tour and learning more about him was something we are glad we didn't miss.
Our bill for 2 days was about $84. We have all the discounts, but can't remember if they accepted them...our stay was during the first week of June 2017.
Excellent RV park. Highly recommend. Right across from Graceland, within walking distance. Had a pull-through with full hookup. WI-Fi reception excellent.
Recommend Marlowe's for excellent ribs. Free pickup at park in pink limo, although an easy drive down the street 1 1/2 miles..
Will return again.
We stayed here on a visit to Graceland. The RV park is on the Graceland property and right behind the Heart Break Hotel. You can easily walk to Graceland. Sites are close together and have full hook ups. The bath houses are clean and large. There is also a store.
I stayed at a back in site. They have pull thru's but they are priced higher. Its a good place to stay to see Graceland.
Marlowe's Restaurant is just up the road and they have a free pickup and drop off service to the RV park. They'll come pick you up at your site in a pink Cadillac and take you back after dinner. The food at Marlowe's (BBQ) is very good.
Great Park, Great Location
We stayed 2 nights and really liked this rv park. They take the Good Sam discount so our rate posted below reflected that. It was not very crowded, the staff was friendly and gave us tons of brochures to nearby attractions. Graceland is literally right across the street with the shuttle bus and ticket area on the RV side of the street. Could not be any more convenient. The park was pretty quiet, some traffic noise, airplane noise and train noise but no big deal. They have a GREAT park to walk dogs in, huge area. Our dogs are well trained so we were able to take them into the wooded type area to run around off leash. Showers are very nice and clean. The pool was closed due to the fact that it's winter. And the Elvis tour is fabulous. We went on the $36 per person platinum tour and saw the mansion, jet and car museum. Very worth the price. If you aren't an Elvis fan before the tour, you will be after. Despite the price, it was well worth it. Enjoy!
Nice camp for one or two nights just for visiting amazing Graceland of Elvis !!!
If you want to be close to Graceland then this is the place for you. Graceland is a couple of minute walk. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We stayed in a travel trailer and would stay again.
Memphis-Graceland RV Park
This a great place to stop for a quick peak at Graceland, since it is right across the street. It's located behind Heartbreak Hotel on Elvis Presley Boulevard which is a complete eyesore of a boulevard. Hard to imagine that this was once pastoral and beautiful. Graceland is now surrounded by gas stations, donut shops and plain ol' ugliness. This park, however, was nicely tucked behind all that, with a nice park-like setting that included an outdoor pool and a free limo ride to a restaurant down the street. Yeah, it wasn't entirely free since a tip was expected, but because it was just a stopover for me and I didn't unhitch, it was a nice perk.
