As we were rolling through Memphis we googled RV Parks and found one just across the river so we decided to head into Arkansas. This is actually called West Memphis and all we had to do was drive across the Big Muddy.As we headed toward the park we passed by the famous steel triangle of Memphis that used to house the pro basketball “Grizzlies“. Sparse crowds took the team elsewhere and the entire structure now stands empty. In a city with an astronomically high unemployment rate the city still owes some $33 million on this gleaming steel elephant.
A short three miles across the river and into Arkansas we came upon the best kept secret on the Mississippi, the Tom Sawyer RV Park.
I’ll critique the park a little later as we have to set up now. What a view! We are literally no more than fifty feet from the banks of this monstrosity.
