I always have a back up plan because something seems to always inevitably happen.
This time we were planned a month ahead, however our batteries and other mechanicals that Allen started out with seemed to all fall through. It wasn’t the peoples fault we were working with but just a chain of events. This chain of events led to it was really a challenge to leave but albeit at about 4 or 4:30 we left regardless. I was going to leave that place even if it meant parking at a campground down the road. We made it to Southaven Mississippi. We normally stay at the Yogi Bear park but this time we weren’t sure where we would be leaving so late. We decided to forgo the Memphis, TN. Whole Foods where we normally stop to eat dinner and keep bussing.
Stop 1 :
EZ Dayz Rv Park.
I called and spoke to Kristy and sent an email and it was right at their closing time. I explained our long paraphernalia of equipment. We have a 40 ft motor coach, a 22 ft. handicap accessible van, and the van pulls a 10 ft cargo trailer that houses our daughters special needs equipment.
She said that she had spot that could accommodate us. Good. So on we went we didn’t even stop at Whole Foods it was too late. The campground is really nice. Its huge. There are parts of the campground on both sides of the road.

Now the downside.
This is good for overnight parking and if you want to stay it is nice. It sort of reminds me of an apartment complex setting for RV’s. There are a lot of spaces and a lot of those spaces were full but we didn’t see a lot of people.
It is well kept and very clean no trash.
We got to this campground at about 10:30 that night. We were tired but glad the campground was clean. It was very quiet.
We noticed that pulling the bus in there wasn’t enough space for the van or the trailer. This is a major deal since our van needs to remain plugged in and we usually plug it in to our bus. This keep a cooler cooled for our daughters special dietary needs.
This is NOT what we want especially after calling and sending an email for a specific need. This is why we tend to camp at truck stops occasionally.

We ended up unhooking our trailer for the night. We had to squeeze the trailer in front of the bus on the drivers side backed in. We then had to pull in the van next to trailer and passenger couldn’t even get out. Which is a nightmare for a child with special needs , We spent an hour and half getting unloaded and getting equipment moved. We have had worse but its really disheartening with tired kids and we are tired from driving and we were forced to unhook. The next time we will stay again at Yogi Bear Southaven again. http://memphisjellystone.com
Prices may be a little more but it is worth not having to unhook and hook back up.
It is needless to say with staying up so late that we were tired, we overslept and then our jacks got stuck and wouldn’t go up.
We were given the ” you need to leave call” . I think it needs to be known that check in we didn’t make and we were clearly late leaving because of staying up so late from moving around equipment.
We did keep with the 3 state rule for us though for traveling. We did Arkansas, Tennessee, and Mississippi.
I didn’t have time to take any photos to even show you the park.
