We are visiting relatives in Memphis, TN. We looked up a few campgroumds (my gf is from memphis), and are concerned that they may be in hoodlum infested zones.

What are some suggestions for SAFE, and inexpensive rv parks in Memphis. Full hookups and facilities.

Look south across the border. We’ve stayed at EZ Daze.

We spent one night at Tom Sawyer a couple of months ago, and it certainly seemed safe.

I am another one for Tom Sawyer, great place. Its easy to get to and from Memphis. Stayed there this past year had a river front site, got my fill of watching the barges going on the river.

Tom Sawyer is our choice. We've also done Graceland RV Park next to Elvis' Graceland. Expensive. Seemed okay, but you want peace and quiet, go to Tom Sawyer.

That's a sad commentary on our society when one of the criteria for an RV park is that it be `safe'.

I'm 65 years old now and when I was 16 I made my first (alone) road trip from Indianapolis to Dallas. I wanted to stop (about mid-way) in the Memphis area for an overnight in a motel (long before I had an RV). I was warned by LOTS of people back THEN, that Memphis was NOT the place to spend the night at all! It was simply too dangerous. And sad, ... since 1971, I've never heard anything different that the conditions there have improved.

Unfortunately, yes ... our society IS that bad in some places.

It's been my experience that the inexpensive parks are in less than desirable locations. If a camper wants a feeling of being safe then they must pony-up the extra dough for a park in a better location.

Currently Memphis has a crime rate 201% higher than the national average so the OP has grounds for concern. We stayed at the Graceland park but since I am always armed we were safe.
