We return to Reelfoot for a week each year along with 2 other couples. There is no other place that provides more peace and quiet and beauty. Local restaurants provide filling and delicious meals at a reasonable price. You must take the tour boat and see the hidden spots along the lake. This is not a place where you will... More

We visited on a gorgeous autumn afternoon. I couldn't stop taking pictures of the cypress trees! We stopped at two observation decks before we went to the visitor's center. We were delighted to see a live bald eagle and four owls in enclosures behind the building. We walked on the boardwalk through the trees and took pictures of the lake.... More

Wide variety of crafts ( fall and otherwise). Wide variety of food. Some of it is a little pricey. Example - one ear of grilled corn is $5. But a good place to get items for fall and winter decorating. Or a cap and name tag for your dog. Fun day to look, buy, and eat. It runs for 3... More

We were in the area for a couple of days to fish. The park was a great stop. We were there during the off season so many activities were not in operation. The staff was super friendly and the boardwalk was a pretty walk.

We did not see the eagles but may be back this winter when more are in the area. We have photographed the eagles here before.

This was our first time at Reelfoot Lake State Park campground. We stayed from 7/15/22014-7/20/2014. We have a 36 ft. Class A motor home and were able to reserve a site (#19) right on the lake. The campground is very large with over 350 sites. The only complaint about our site would be it was short. The campground is flat... More

Our photography club took a field trip to Reelfoot Lake State Park last weekend. We booked a lake tour on a pontoon boat. It was a truly great tour. Our guide/boat pilot was very knowledgeable about the lake, the wildlife and the flora and fauna around it. She knew the places to take us for some really awesome photo opportunities... More

We took a 2 hour drive to Reelfoot Lake to do a little photography and walk some trails. A lot of things have changed since we visited it as children. The boardwalk through the marshy area was a nice walk to take and we saw water snakes, herons, ducks, turtles and fish. There is a nice visitor center where you... More

We stopped at the visitor center for about an hour. The boardwalk was the highlight for me. The walkway is built on wooden posts placed in the lake. It meanders through tall bald cypress trees which are majestic. We saw several turtles sunning themselves and numerous water birds floating on the water. I imagine there's far more wildlife during warmer... More
