The visitor center on the east side seems to be closed, so we had to go over to the center on the west side. If you're not into fishing, there's not a lot you can do here. They offer a pontoon boat ride but we missed it since we couldn't find any information about anything on the 'net.

This was the smallest State park I have ever visited. It was nice for what it is. There was a picnic area with the lake behind it. It does offer some camping.

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
