Introduction:

This is a typical commercial parking lot type campground that is extremely convenient, but pretty depressing.

The Basics:

Overall Rating: 3.8/5

Price per night / Discounts: $41 / 10% discount available with Good Sam (which we do not have as of yet).

Campground website: Graceland RV Park

Our Site #: Unknown

Privacy Rating (how spacious and private do the sites feel):

2/5: Rigs are parked right next to one another with no privacy at all. If you were to sit outside, you'd be staring directly at your neighbor's RV.

Location Rating (accessibility to points of interest or to major highways):

5/5: The campground is right next door to the Graceland complex. We simply walked out our door and across a parking lot to get to the ticket office. Additionally, it's close to the highways, making all points of interest easily accessible.

Site Quality and Big Rig Accessibility Rating (utilities and accessibility of campground hook ups):

5/5: Sites are plenty long enough to accomodate big rigs and toads. Full hookups work well and are well placed. Interior roads are easy to maneuver.

Technology and Customer Service Rating (online resources, reservations, and staff):

2/5: The website provides the necessary information, but you still need to call for reservations. Customer service felt very corporate. They give you their standard spiel, including what local businesses you can get a discount from if you provide a reference to the campground, and off you go. It's not bad, it's just very much an arm's length transaction.

Internet Availability Rating (Verizon coverage or campground wifi):

5/5: Wifi actually worked pretty well, and Verizon was solid.

Summary:

There was nothing inherently wrong with this campground, and it was certainly very convenient, but we couldn't wait to leave. As Kevin said, it just felt "like it had no soul." It wasn't particularly warm or friendly, and everyone was crammed in next to one another for a night or two before moving on. The whole place felt very corporate, unlike some other commercial campgrounds we've stayed in where you can tell it's run by a family who cares about their customers. If you want to visit Graceland or Memphis in general, it's a solid place. Just don't expect anything more than a parking spot with hookups, and a whole lot of turnover.
