  • Visited Mud Island on our most recent trip to Memphis. Park is in a slight need of an upgrade, lil run down. We bought the park pass which included monorail & museum passes. Great for a Mississippi Ri...  more »

  • I finally was able to visit Mud Island. My bucket list is almost compete!! A must see in Memphis and a very great activity for kids.
  • Alot interesting points as well historical. Enjoy the scale of the Mississippi River and points of history
  • This has been my favorite place to bring visitors for over 10 years ... until a recent visit in May 2017. What was once among the best, most unique and fun places to see in Memphis, is now a run-down, dirty disappointment. General lackadaisical, unmotivated, unprofessional attitude among many employees has resulted in trash, filth, broken lamps, filthy paddleboats ... a stinking mess in desperate need of a good manager and some TLC. Monorail barely functional and seemingly random schedule. Food selection at both cafes was either hotdogs (not bad) or the world's worst pizza ... all at ridiculous prices. I very rarely write a bad review and my attitude of deep disappointment is simply because this was, could and SHOULD be a Memphis gem ... not the pitiful mess it has become. :'-(
  • Great value. Outdoor river was perfect. My 5 year old son loved it! Museum was nice too.
  • Kids had fun in the water but parts of the water were absolutely disgusting... this place could use a major overhaul on the riverwalk and pool areas.
