We found EZ Daze RV Park in Southaven, MS, when we were looking for somewhere to stay near Memphis, but not in the thick of the traffic and congested streets. What a find! We loved the cleanliness, convenience, and price tag for this campground that makes visiting Graceland, Tunica casinos, and downtown Memphis a breeze. Here is what you can expect.
The RV Campsites
EZ Daze RV Park, in DeSoto County, Mississippi, has 136 sites, primarily pull-through, between the streets labeled hospitality, harmony, generosity, integrity, and purity. The campground has level concrete pads and full hook-ups, including free high-speed Wi-Fi and Cable TV. Rates are $57 per night for two adults/two children.
Check-in was a breeze, which you do by a text message on your phone. A package is left for you at the lobby to pick up at your leisure with your campsite, vehicle tag, and property brochure.
I loved that the brochure for the campground included the wireless internet code and restroom and laundry codes printed on it. A channel guide was also listed, as well as phone numbers for emergencies. I wish they could all be this organized.
EZ Daze RV Park has a dog run and retention pond, which was near our campsite. They also have a pretty swimming pool at the back of the office area but require check-in in the office, a wristband, and a signed release form before using. A veranda leading to the restrooms and showers had a vending machine for water and drinks. There is an exercise room and an extensive DVD movie selection for your use.
Propane and ice areas are available at the EZ Daze RV Park office. Dumpsters are at the front and back corners of the property.
Rules: There are no campfires on the EZ Daze RV Park property, nor fireworks. Skateboarding and ATVs are not allowed. Quiet hours are 10 PM to 8 AM.
Remember to be a good camper, clean up your pet’s waste, don’t leave animals tied up or unattended. Animals are not allowed in pool areas or public buildings.
Nearby Attractions to Southaven
Visit Beale Street in Memphis, home of the blues and the birthplace of rock & roll. Eat BBQ, hear live music, and take lots of photos in this iconic part of town. Sun Studio is where you’ll go to have a guided tour of the birthplace of rock & roll. It is, after all, the most famous recording studio in the world.
While downtown, pop into the historic Peabody Hotel, home to the famous Duck March. The Peabody is a AAA Four-Diamond historic hotel that is beautiful and a must-see.
Treasures in Memphis
Also in Memphis is the National Civil Rights Museum, a great place to learn about the history of the Civil Rights movement across the country. The Lorraine Motel has been meticulously preserved and is where you can pay your respects to the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr, at the place where his life was taken on April 4, 1968.
Everyone should visit Graceland at least once in their life and see the only home that Elvis Presley ever owned. You will also have the chance to tour his auto museum, custom jets and see his incredible trophy room. There are several choices for tours these days, so pick whatever fits your budget; it’s all good stuff.
Tunica, only 35 minutes away from the EZ Daze RV Park, Southaven, offers five casinos with table games, slot machines, and even kind of gambling you can imagine. Choose from Horseshoe Tunica, Gold Strike Casino, and Hollywood Casino, to name a few.
The Tanger Outlets Southaven is another popular attraction with great shopping and a handful of restaurants within five minutes or so of EZ Daze RV Park. Pandora, Bloomingdale’s, Calvin Klein, and Vineyard Vines are some of the retail stores you will have to shop at.
If you need a quick meal that is only a hop, skip, and jump from the campground, I recommend Dixie Queen, at 5066 Pepperchase Drive, for great burgers, fries, onion rings, and ice cream treats. Or, head over to El Agave Mexican Grill for jumbo margaritas, excellent queso dip, and a delicious meal (Pollo al Carbon) with loads of spicy grilled jalapeños. Yum!
