We are planning a trip next March which includes overnite stops in the following cities:

Bristow, Virginia

Birmingham, Alabama

New Orleans, LA

Memphis, TN

Nashville, TN

Does anyone have personal experience on RV Campgrounds in these areas. We found an outstanding campground on our first trip last spring and stayed in 'Bluewater Resort" just 15 miles from Key West. It was expensive, but worth it.

Best Regards,

JoAnn & Dave Lauritzen

Gaithersburg, Maryland

Late this fall we stayed at EZ DAZE RV park while visiting Memphis. It was a great clean easy to get to park just south of Memphis a few miles in Southhaven Mississippi.Close to Graceland and great barbecue places. I was told parks in Memphis were not very safe.Why I do not know. Check out[ rv parks reviews.com] its where I find most places I stay.

Last October 8th we stopped at Pontchartrain Landing RV Resort in New Orleans on our way back to Florida after a 3 month trip to the NW. Pontchartrain Landing is very close to the French Quarter but not "in" the FQ like another very expensive campground. It is by a levee and has a marina with huge yachts. Clean and nice, with very helpful personnel. As Passport America members, they only charge us half the fee for a Deluxe Pull Thru, we only payed $33.00!

On a humorous note, our 28' Coachmen '04 Concord looked very tiny as it was surrounded by huge rigs!

We highly recommend this campground and will surely visit it again, should we go to NOLA.

Just across the Mississippi River from Memphis is Tom Sawyer Campground. It is in Arkansas and on the banks of the river. Beautiful view of river and working tugboats, barges,etc. Nice campground.

When in the Memphis area we stay at the Harrah's RV Resort in (Tunica) Robinsonville, MS. Rate is $20.00 per night, 80' pull thru, 50A, including cable TV. The only thing missing is WiFi. We have our own broadband so don't need it. Bus runs every hour to the Casino if you want to gamble or have a good meal. Enjoy your stay in the Memphis area.

In the Birmingham area, the choices are fairly limited. The Hoover RV Park is OK, it's basically a large parking lot that is available for evernS like the SEC Baseball Tournament. It does have full hookups. Birmingham South Campground in Pelham is OK, It's an old KOA, folks there are nice. Oak Mountain State Park, also in Pelham is fairly good, nice wilderness setting in a suburban area. The main campground has full hookup sites, but only 30 amp service. There is an "equestrian" campground near the stables and demo farm at the main entrance to the park. It is full hookup and 50 amp service. Price is the same as the 30 amp sites in the main CG. I have never seen it crowded. If I were only going to be there for a few days, that's where I would go.

Additionally, Oak Mountain State Park has almost 30 miles of outstanding mountain bike trails. The park has beginner trails all the way up through expert mountain bike trails. Oak Mountain has been designated an "Epic Ride" by the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA), and there are only 52 Epic Rides worldwide.
