A little learning and lot of seeing

The visitor's center is simple and has some interesting facts to share. There are a few local specimens to see up and personal. The board walk is breathe taking and a must.

Best viewed from the walking deck or bridge at Blue Bank Resort on Lake Drive, the sunsets at Reelfoot Lake are beautiful and a bit romantic. We took pictures every 5-10 minutes and they were ever changing, each more beautiful than the next. We had drinks and then a lovely dinner and on the deck and went back and forth... More

We stopped and fed some duck. Just a great view here. We also did the auto tour down by the wildlife refuge.... More

This place is an anomaly: a Louisiana bayou/swamp in TN! In the late 1800s there was a major earthquake that caused the river to run backwards and it created this beautiful swamp area with cypress trees that grow in the water. It's beautiful, magical and even a little creepy! Take a pontoon boat tour out to the island or admire... More

We stayed one night at the Tennessee State campground on the south side of Reelfoot Lake after a day at the Discovery Park of America in nearby Union City. The park was nice and clean. Very quiet at night we had a spot right on the water with a wonderful view. One draw back is that there is no swimming... More

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.
