We live in Memphis and pack up our Airstream and head to Shelby Forest for a quick weekend trip. Most sites offer trees for shade and space between other campers. We always choose a site on the outer side of the campground loop for additional privacy. Lots of things to do including hiking, biking, fishing and canoeing. A short drive to The Mississippi River to see incredible sunsets. There is a small general store right outside the park if you forget anything. They have live bluegrass and steaks on Friday night and also serve breakfast and lunch.
