coffee and breakfast well advertised but too expensive for a family

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have a full expanded breakfast menu made fresh to order - very comparable to café pricing. The serving sizes are very BIG, especially the pancakes. More than enough to share with economy minded campers. People come back asking after Regina and some more of her good cooking.

Don't trust your GPS to find this place. Call them to confirm directions. Nice level, pull through sites once you get there. Good stop over for Memphis sight seeing. Bring bug repellant- mosquitoes are in the biting millions and the size of teradactyls!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the nice comments on our campground we are a very convenient campground for downtown Memphis and Beale St. and of course Graceland. Yes the south has a lot of mosquitoes due to the very wet Spring and early summer. We have a full line of repellants in the General Store.
Aug 01, 2014
The mosquitos were pretty thick

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The Mid - South region has been very rainy, hence the mosquitoes are out in full force. We have a full line of repellants in our General Store that work quite well.

Average park but recent rain made some of the spaces (ours) very muddy.

After I found the KOA after the GPS sent me to the wrong location the stay at the KOA was what you would expect.
Jul 28, 2014
Super nice staff. Quick overnight stay. Needs some sprucing up.

We stayed one night. Might need a little facelift. My son did have fun on the playground. Not well marked if coming in from the East...hard to understand how to get to.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for answering our survey. The Memphis KOA is under going improvements and a lot is planned for this park. If you follow the KOA Directory it has good directions. Download the new KOA app for smartphones for good directions as well.

I've stayed at nicer KOA's, but we only needed a place to stay for the night.
Jul 24, 2014
only one person who was really nice at the desk she was wonderful the rest oh well
Jul 24, 2014
Nice campground. Friendly people.
Jul 24, 2014
Cheerful greeting, friendly help to our site, great pancake breakfast
Jul 23, 2014
It was very peaceful and quiet, but sure could use a little bit of updating or repair around the restrooms and game room.
Jul 23, 2014
I was glad to see that registration/check-in and the store was still opened when we arrived at 8 pm. It was nice to be greeted by someone so late after a long drive. I was also happy that showers/restrooms are air conditioned.

Intimidating entrance, kinda steep going in at an angle. Take it slow. Built on a big hill. Sites are level, but rest of cmpground pretty slopey. Great amenity is the free breakfast pancakes. They are the best and the guy that cooks them is a blast to talk to. Ask him about "Golf" when ur there. Great loscation to shows and restaraunts. Have fun Kamping.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This camper is talking about another campground we don't have golf or free pancakes. And ladies cook breakfast from our full service menu in our café.
Jul 21, 2014
As you would expect from KOA, the camp and facilities were clean and the staff friendly. More activities at the camp would be nice, like a jumping pillow or mini-golf. We never found mini-golf anywhere in the Memphis area. If we are ever in the area again, we would probably stay here.

Arrived late to find a great check in set up for after hours. Easy to find with enough room to be comfortable. Kids loved the giant chess set by the office! Thanks!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are a very busy overnight park and do have a great setup for late arrivals. The park is well lit at night and we have everything ready for our weary campers. Yes our giant chess set is a real favorite with our campers.

shabby, dirty bathrooms

Campground was unkempt and generally not very clean.

This is a fine place to stay. I had jack and slide problems and the owner was very helpful in getting me on the road again. Very nice people.
Jul 18, 2014
Great place for one night stop over.
Jul 18, 2014
Way over-priced! Campground is in bad need of maintenance: trees need trimmed, roads & sites need gravel, etc. When we were there, a brush pile was being burned and the smoke was blowing back into the camping area.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The brush pile mentioned in this review was not intentional. It was a hot dry windy day and it started a fire. There has been a major tree trimming that was done this Spring throughout the park. Site A has no trees on it and plenty of gravel. It is the most popular row in the park.
Jul 17, 2014
Very friendly office personel once you find this place.
Jul 17, 2014
Friendly, informative, goes out of their way to help you.
Jul 16, 2014
Just over night - so didn't get to check everything out. But will try again soon.
Jul 15, 2014
Staff was very courteous and helpful. Campsite was fine. Playground area was in need of repair (basketball hoop, swingset) and lawn needed mowing. I do realize this is a KOA Journey location. Jerry Seamans

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The playground area is having an impromptu makeover. Contractors laying waterlines knocked down part of the swing set with an earth mover. The basketball court - someone hung off of the net and it came crashing down. So hence, there is a makeover in progress.
Jul 14, 2014
Very enjoyable stay. We were delayed for an extra few days at the campground. They were very helpful and understanding.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the nice comment! We were glad to have you a few extra days. It happens quite often that we get campers with rv/car problems. We are lucky to have great people in the area that can assist our campers in getting back on the road.
Jul 14, 2014
Over all it was a nice campground. The spaces were kind of tight which for over night stop overs are fine but for multiple days it would have been nice to have a little more room. In other KOAs there was always park staff running around the campground interacting with the guest. How ever the staff was friendly when you went into the store. The location of the park was good for day trips to Memphis

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do have end sites that are bigger. We will gladly move you to a bigger site. We have people ask to be near the playground or the bath house all the time. Just call the office for assistance. We want the guest to have a great time.
Jul 12, 2014
Nice place, nice people but the road need lots of work, lots of holes.
Jul 12, 2014
The staff are great, sites are nice & easy. It is a little out of the way from I 40 & they have a lot of holes on their inside roads with the rain they have had it is very muddy. I know they couldn't control the rain but need to fix the roads.
Jul 12, 2014
Very convenient location. KOA folks very helpful and friendly.
Jul 11, 2014
Jul 11, 2014
Just an overnight, but at the end of a long day in terrible traffic in construction on I-40, it was a pleasure to find a smiling face and a helpful host!
Jul 10, 2014
Excellent ! Especially liked the camp store. Will be back for sure next year and perhaps even sooner. Rick and Debbie Duncan
Jul 10, 2014
This KOA was overpriced, as are MOST KOA's. Will only stay at one when passing through an area and that seems like the best choice for a big rig.
Jul 10, 2014
Sold us camp wood and no fire rings. Sites are very close and camp fires are close to other trailers. Pool nice. Playground is dirt and run down. Bath house fine. Would not stay here again

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Playground is surfaced in play sand, not dirt. It is in the process of being freshly painted. There was plumbing work done next to the playground. The work is complete and it is being freshly seeded. We would have brought you a fire ring as needed. Campers enjoy campfires all the time on these sites
Jul 10, 2014
The spaces were tight. Long stay tenants had trash around and under their trailer. The whole camp looked old, worn out and needing repair. The camp could spray for mosquitoes as they were really bad!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for filling out the survey. Here at KOA we appreciate when people come to us while they are here. We have bigger sites available and will gladly move you. The campground normally gets good reviews on the condition of the park. There are ongoing improvement projects going on.
Jul 10, 2014
Overnight. Nice facility, friendly staff greeting and information. Good cable. Nice level site. Rural but convenient setting

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for doing our survey and we are glad you had an enjoyable stay. We are very proud of our friendly, well informed staff. We want our campers to have a wonderful time. That is our goal.
Jul 09, 2014
The lots being level were AWESOME.
Jul 09, 2014
Friendly staff, clean washrooms BUT...lots of Mosquitos.
Jul 09, 2014
There was a definite mosquito problem when we stayed at this campground and no one at the office mentioned it to us. In the am, I asked and they said it was due to the rice paddies and extreme rainy season this year. Must have had 30 mosquitoes in our RV that we had to try to kill. They need to use a mosquito treatment or warn people when they come in. Too bad..,very nice park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We sell a full line of repellent in our General Store. Here in the Mid South area we are experiencing alot of mosquitoes this year. Just like in shore areas and lakes, it is the norm to have some kinds of bugs. Hence, the use of repellants this time of year is necessary.
Jul 09, 2014
Not a friendly atmosphere. Only the lady making breakfast made us feel welcome.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

In reviewing this survey, I was surprised that the camper felt this way. This is a very unusual comment, as we are complimented on how friendly our staff is. We encourage campers to come to us while they are here. Good customer service is practiced here everyday.
Jul 08, 2014
This was a simple overnight stop for us. It was an easy in and out campground.
