I have had a wonderful extended stay at Shelby Forest State Forest. Have been in the cabins for several days, with Cabin 2 and Cabin 3 being my favorites. The cabins are not fancy but fairly modern and very clean on the inside. Excellent beds. Cabins are fully stocked with a good TV (not cable but several channels regardless), refrigerator,... More

This state park is in such disarray, it's sad to see. Not well kept. When we arrived our camping site was already occupied by someone who has been there for quite sometime. We ended up with a site that had a 3 ft drop off to get out of the camper and then a 20 ft drop off a few... 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 and listened to wonderful live music.

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 to the campground. Camper sites are ~55 foot long, back-in style. ($20/night + $5) There... 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, she deserves to be cared for.

Decent stay. Staff were helpful. The 4 mile hike had a small creek but no waterfalls. The pool is permanently closed... which they should bring back because it's the only pool in the area! Cabins were fairly clean but we had roach problems, horse flys, and wasps. Bug spray is a must and roach spray!!! Keep the doors closed. Be... More
