Stayed in cabins from April 9-15. They are very old, in need of repair, smell bad and very dirty. We had 2 bedrooms each with a double bed and a small bathroom with no room to hang a towel or put anything on the counter....More

Love the park close to home. Good camp spots. Not real close to the lake. Has cabins right on the lake. Take plenty of bug spray in the warm months.

Meant to do the one mile trail, but didn't see the markers and accidentally did the 4 mile trail. It was beautiful but my thighs still hurt a week later! Beautiful, well kept area. Highly recommend- loved the general store. We bought lots of jams...More

This is a nice park which is easy to get to in the Millington/Memphis area. There are nice hiking trails.

Highly recommend arriving during daylight hours for camping! It gets pretty dark because of all the trees and minimal lights. Do NOT miss the turn for the campground! We ended up on a one way road for hunters... There are few signs directing you back...More

Shelby Forest in beautiful but obviously needed some major attention. The picnic tables were in a state of disrepair and quite frankly, I would not want to eat off them. The lodge looked run down too. The state needs to invest in this natural beauty,...More

I would visit the pavilions, and see which you like. One of the pavilions is closed (#3 or #5?) But is a nice shaded area.
Does anyone know if there is water and electricity at the pavilions (shelters)?
