Tennessee - Memphis - Meeman-Shelby Forest SP / by Dave Hileman

Meehan Shelby is located just a short distance north of downtown Memphis we found this to be an ideal spot to visit the area (http://tnstateparks.com/parks/campground/meeman-shelby). We liked the quiet locale, hikes in the forest and neat drive along the Mississippi. Easy access to Memphis as well. Our site, #14, had water and electric service and was paved. Any of the sites on the middle loop are nice with lots of shade. Not that we needed shade that day. It was my second time to back in and it took a few tries so the large bus pictured on site 14 on the web page now must be a mirage. Rate was about $22 in spring of 16. The directions to the park were not the easiest to follow and there are several entrances as well. Wifi could be had at night by driving to the welcome station and sitting in the car. We visited Graceland (of course) Sun Studio (http://www.sunstudio.com)- the highlight of the trip for me, great tour and Beale Street. Oh, and the giant pyramid Bass Pro store. Amazing space.
