We spent today at Tom Sawyer’s RV Park in West Memphis, Arkansas. We arrived yesterday afternoon after a wet but uneventful drive from Carthage Tennessee. Our original itinerary had us taking today off and after yesterday’s fall and drive it was a good day for John to take it easy, lick his wounds, and catch up on this blog.
Our site was still wet when we arrived yesterday, there was more rain during the afternoon.
Tom Sawyer’s is located on the Mississippi River west of downtown Memphis.
We had intended to stop at Tom Sawyer’s twice before but both times local flooding had closed the park, considering the dry summer we knew it would be fine this time. We put up on a riverfront site with a cement slab, the site is convenient offering several possible locations for sewer hookups. The riverfront location is nice but there is a large area along the river with plenty of benches to sit and watch the barge traffic if you make another (less expensive), site choice.
There are large barges…
we also saw a barge drag race.
We took a walk around the park this morning and spotted some of the local wildlife.
This tiny guy was hanging out under our steps.
KoKo enjoyed a little ball time today. Sit, wait…
She still runs for it, when she’s in the right mood.
Tomorrow we will start getting serious about our drive back to the Ranch so no more days off until we are home.
