“Underwhelming”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

If you are going through Camden, Tenn., then stop and spend about 5 minutes at this memorial. But unless you are a big Patsy Cline fan, you will likely be disappointed. It's easy to get to, IF you happen to see the sign. But the memorial itself is somewhat underwhelming - only a big rock at the bottom of a ravine. And when we were there the trail leading down the hill was in great need of weed trimming. And least I forget, the pamphlet you get at the Interstate highway rest areas does not give the directions to the place. If you are on Hwy 641 look for the McDonalds and the sign will be nearby. We went past it twice.

“Country Music Legends”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Its out in the middle of the woods. The road getting there is narrow. Down a hill with no real way for a handicap person to get up or down. If can get to rock at the bottom, I found it to be a quite and spirited place.

“Special Site”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

Only if you remember the event when it happened or you are a hard core Patsy Kline fan will this site mean much. Don't forget the other country stars that perished here as well. Sobering site!

“How Far Do You Want To Drive To See A Large Rock?”
Reviewed 26 May 2013

Whether or not this site is worth the effort depends on your interest in Patsy Cline. It is about 30 miles off the interstate and NOT easy to get to. The "memorial" itself is a large rock at the end of a very long path down into a ravine where the plan crashed. Going DOWN the hill isn't too bad! Going back UP is a son-of-a-gun!! It is just about 30 minutes from Loretta Lynn's ranch, which made it worth the trip. If it hadn't been for that, we would never have gone. Like I said, if you're a big Patsy Cline fan, GO! If not, don't bother. There's nothing else there.

“I would think the Country Music Hall of Fame would take interest in this. Maybe dress it up a bit. More advertisement,”
Reviewed 14 December 2012

Maybe country music hall of fame would take more interest. Needs more advertisement,no one knows where this is unless you happen to know a local and they take you there.
