The Great Outdoors

Hop in your RV rental and drive south into the town of Marion in just a few minutes, or if you want to stretch those legs, why not rent a bike from the RV park and cycle into town in just over 20 minutes?When you book an RV in Crittenden County, then you’re most likely looking to connect with nature; if so, drive north from Memphis KOA towards Marked Tree, and you’ll stumble upon Wapanocca National Wildlife Refuge in less than 30 minutes. This 5,484-acre paradise is home to masses of wildlife and diverse local botany for the avid outdoors person to enjoy. There are plenty of activities available at the park, including photography, environmental education, hunting, and fishing.If you’re planning on combining your day in the great outdoors with dinner in the big city, make your way to Shelby Farms Park on the east side of Memphis just above Germantown (home to a famed farmers market). You’ll find treetop climbing courses, hiking trails, horseback riding tours, bike rental, dog walking trails (including 100 acres for designated off-leash fun), boating, and paddleboard rental, fishing, disc golf, and even paintball and laser tag.For a more educational outdoor experience, consider exploring the Memphis Botanical Gardens located just 2 minutes' drive from Beale Street, the famed entertainment capital of the city. Here, you’ll be able to wander through close to 30 specialty gardens, with highlights including the great lawn, the rose garden, the daylily circle, the iris garden, the Japanese garden, and the wildflower woodland to name just a few must-sees.Upon walking through this plant-laden paradise, it’s easy to see why many people travel from far and wide to have their weddings at the Memphis Botanical Gardens, with the added bonus of being so close to the vibrant and culturally rich playground of Memphis.

Exploring the Area

After getting to know the nature that surrounds this stunning area, you simply can’t miss out on exploring the city of Memphis itself, well known as the home of Elvis - you can’t stop by his hometown without a visit to Graceland.Situated on Elvis Presley Blvd, you’ll be able to explore the rooms where some of his famous songs were written and even recorded, check out his collection of classic cars, and before you leave, be sure to pop into Glady’s Diner for a grilled PB and banana sandwich - a favorite of the king of rock’n’roll himself.What trip to Tennessee would be complete without listening to some live music? There's a calendar of events year-round, including Elvis week which takes place every August. But it’s not just music bringing people to the city; it’s also famed for its food, cultural, and film festivals.And while we’re on the subject of food, if you’re not planning a day focused on food in Memphis, well, you’re going to be missing out. This may be the home of blues, soul, and rock and roll, but they also serve a mean BBQ so why not hit up one of the many family-run BBQ restaurants for dinner?Or if you decided that you’ve had enough of a big city for the day, on your way back to Memphis KOA, take a pit-stop in West Memphis, which actually lies just over the river in Arkansas, and enjoy a bit of home-style cooking and a quieter atmosphere. Only 10 minutes' drive from Memphis KOA, it’s a great spot for dinner with the kids so that they won’t miss bedtime.What more incentive could you possibly need to book a trip to Memphis KOA?

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
