Beale Street

Beale Street is known the world over as the Home of the Blues and the Birthplace of Rock n’ Roll. This famous street is filled with some of the most amazing forms of entertainment! A short 16 mile drive from our park, this cultural hub is a must see on your Memphis journey!

Memphis Zoo

The Memphis Zoo, located in Midtown, Memphis, TN, is only a short 18.4 miles from our camp-resort. Grab the family and go see some amazing animals! The zoo has over 3,500 animals and is sure to put some smiles on everyones faces!

Rendezvous

A hop, skip, and jump away (16 miles), Rendezvous, located in Memphis TN was “created” in 1948, when Charlie Vergos cleaned out a basement below his diner, discovered a coal chute, which gave him a vent for his considerable talent over a grill, and allowed him to expand from ham-and-cheese sandwiches to ribs. Today, you will find several thousand people on an average Saturday night pour into our basement and sink their teeth into a slab of what makes Memphis, well, Memphis. Work up an appetite swimming all day then come fill up at this delicious spot!

National Civil Rights Museum

Visit the National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel to learn all about historical milestones for civil rights. Check out historical artifacts, listen to speakers, or attend an event. The museum is only 17 miles from our camp-resort and is the perfect place to learn more about the important history that took place.

Tennessee Safari Park

Located in Alamo, the Tennessee Safari Park is the perfect place for animal lovers to explore. With drive through and walk through options available, you’ll have the opportunity to get up close to a variety of safari animals. You can even feed them as you make your way through the park! It is worth the drive, around 92 miles from our camp-resort!
