There are a lot of soft people in the world today, if you're one of those people this isn't the place for you.  In the spring and summer the property can become quite overgrown.  Some people have had difficulty accessing the inner part of the property that is pretty well cleared and secluded.  I happen to like it that way.

There are a lot of soft people in the world today, if you're one of those people this isn't the place for you.  In the spring and summer the property can become quite overgrown.  Some people have had difficulty accessing the inner part of the property that is pretty well cleared and secluded.  I happen to like it that way.

A quarter acre, just a stone's throw from Graceland. The property itself doesn't provide much more than a place to park, but you can literally walk to Graceland and Beale Street is only about a 15 minute drive or Uber ride. My friend has parked his 5 window skoolie with a 15 foot utility trailer without any issues. There's no access to the shipping container on the property, but you're welcome to set out a few chairs and bbq on the back side of the property as long as you're careful about fires. Any proceeds will go to pay property taxes and purchase surrounding properties to enhance the experience. There are no fire rings, toilets, or running water; and certainly no power.  You're welcome to park or tent camp but understand that this property is very primitive.  If you're looking for luxury there are some amazing properties in the area listed right here on HipCamp.  Please have a great stay and message with any questions.

It's not that you are a priss of its too overgrown. It's pure laziness. If you don't have an rv or 4wd, I would pass. I have a jeep and it was bad. Terrible directions, didn't even find it the first night. Good luck. Location is the only reason you should pick urban forest.

Ideal for hammock camping

A tight driveway leaves about 30 ft to park an RV where it meets a shipping container at the end .To reach the site you walk a trail next to the container. The site is small and has very uneven ground therefore I would not recommend tent camping. The site is far from romantic with lots of litter and a neighboring house about 60ft away. And a mound of burnt trash as a "fire pit." The surrounding area has few houses but a ridiculous amount of litter along the sideof the road approachingthe site. I came with my girlfriend for two nights and booked this site because it's a 20 minute drive from Beale street and very cheap. We planned to tent camp but found no flat ground to pitch a tent and instead decided to hammock camp which turned out to work well with the amount of trees. If you plan on using an RV, the site and parking spot is about a 50 ft walk away so it is not ideal of you plan on setting up a hang out area directly outside the RV. Also the parking space is very tight, an RV would barely fit. surrounding woods are very dense and hard to navigate through if looking for firewood. Overall worth the money and satisfied with the spot only because of the price and location. An unfinished tree house leaves for a lot of potential.

Exactly as advertised. I felt safe here overnight. The trees provide great coverage. I could imagine some vehicles having trouble with the sloped dirt road during rainy weather, but I didn't have any problems in my small car. Mac is a very communicative and professional host.

The camp spot is east to find and it is primitive. It does need a table and if the tree house that is under construction is a future site for clamping or camping it would be a very nice setting for a stay in the rear of the property .

It was a bit more shady/dirty than I thought it'd be but definitely a good place for a night. Lots of nice nature sounds and trees to cover the rain.

What can I say? Memphis is a shady place, lol. I'm glad you found the place suitable for a night. I intend to invest all money from HipCamp back into the property to make peoples stay more accommodating.

It was super easy to set up our tent. Great for a quick place to sleep on a road trip. Nice quaint space in the woods. Would go again!
