One reason we are leaving early is because it has been so hot lately, it is better for the tires to drive early when it is cooler
Today was a day for laundry and just enjoying watching the barges go up and down the river. Tomorrow we are heading to Graceland where we will stay and purchase a tour of Elvis’s home and grounds.
Monday, June 17 – Tom Sawyer’s Mississippi River RV Park and Campground, West Memphis, AR
This park is right on the river so that you can enjoy watching the barges as they head north or south. The costs depends on what type of site you have river, cement, tent, full hookups, w & e etc. Our cost on a gravel 30 amp site on the river with full hookups was $32 with a Good Sam discount. It was a nice campground and they have a lot of sites that will fit a huge RV and car. The bathhouse is small and the laundry only has two machines for washing and drying but it was free. Check in was fast and informative and the young girl gave us some coupons for attractions in the Memphis Area. Follow the directions from their website using the new truck bypass route off of interstate 40 and 55. Very easy that way. The camper next to us came in off 270 and said the neighborhood was not the best and he was glad that he did not break down. We were there for just an overnight but enjoyed our stay and would return if we are in the area again. It was in the mid 90’s when we came in and did not need air conditioning because of the shade in our site and the breeze off the Mississippi River.
