  • So much to experience! Hike in the woods, mountain bike, street bike, kayak, SUP. Bring your own or rent it from the park. Plus there is food for sale. This is a one-of-a-kind park.  more »

  • Renovation is going on... the room I stayed in was nice. It was a renovated room. I arrived at 1230am. Went to my room and wanted to just lay down. Pulled the sheets back and it smelled so bad. I had to ask them to change all the bedding. They did, but the thought of sleeping in a bed someone else slept in with that much smell and to not have changed anything,made me think how clean this place is. But there is a staff member for breakfast that I absolutely love. So I gave 2 stars.
  • A nice get-away from the rest of Memphis. Shelby Farms is really one of the few things Memphis is good for. Walk, run or bike the paved or dirt trails by the Wolf River or through the winding paths through wooded areas. I recommend taking a Kayak or canoe out on Patriot lake!
  • This was a huge disappointment. We drove 3 hours to see the lights. Myself, my wife, and our 4 kids sat in line to get to the lights for an hour and a half, paid $20 and the lights were pitiful. The petting zoo and camel ride was the only fun part. Our kids really enjoyed that. The lights in Batesville Arkansas are done by the city, they cost nothing to see, and they are 100 times better. I hate to be the one to say something negative but we wasted an entire day going to see these lights and were very disappointed. We will not be back.
  • I love this place. Lovely place to walk or run, no matter the season. The lake is beautiful. There are bison in the park, which is really cool! (They're behind a fence so safety is not a concern.) The Humane Society, a restaurant called The Kitchen, and Neshoba Unitarian Universalist church are among the things you can find within and around the park!
  • My dog Tippa and I spend a considerable amount of time in the park each week. We love the off-leash area. Acres and acres of fun. You can spend hours exploring the lakes and forests.
