  • Great little state park. We went for an eagle fest and were blown away by great presentations and homemade food. We then went for a beautiful walk along the lake and had a tremendous time. Would definitely go again.
  • Reelfoot is the only Natural Lake in Tennessee!!! Formed by series of Earthquakes in 1800s! All other Tennessee lakes are made by Dam..... Amazing History!!!Great Fishing!!! Great Crappie season in spingtime! Bass Catfish and even Fresh Water Eel make Reelfoot their home! Lots of Cypress Trees!!! Reelfoot is also home to American Eagle which winters here. Great Camping and Lodging! Far Off beaten path Getaway and Winter destination for Eagle Watching!
  • Great place for the family to visit. There are several ways to be able to view and enjoy the Lake. The welcome center has eagles and owls that are being rehabilitated. It also tells the history of Reelfoot Lake. In the spring there are deep swamp canoe tours which are great way to see normally unreachable areas of the lake. The canoes do require your manpower but it;s definitely a fun trip. There are also pontoon tours to get a great view of the lake, islands, and wildlife.
  • Bald Eagles, Great Horned Owls, hawks, board walks, sunsets... What more could you want? Oh, a lake? Well, you're in luck as they have a huge one! Come on out and enjoy a day at Reelfoot Lake!
  • Always a Beautiful Mysterious place to visit!! It was Eagle Fest this weekend so it was some what crowded. We enjoyed the animals on display and watching the eagles in their natural habitat. Reelfoot lake is ALWAYS beautiful no matter what time you visit! We will be back soon!!!
