  • Located off exit 56 about two miles down this was a surprise find. It is a viewing area of the Hatchie river off water... with the lilly pads and the stumps it was something that needs to be viewed.....  more »
  • A lovely setting for a leisurely walk or bike ride to bird watch or explore nature. The fishing is good too, or so I've heard.  more »
  • I love all the out doors. I love nature, and the site's. This area you want to be especially careful, aware, and watchful, of your surroundings due to snakes. Of course this is everywhere, but being aware can't hurt.
  • Beautiful place but fishing the lakes is terrible.. Either full of mossy snot grass that comes all the way up to the bottom of the boat or no fish. The bass are mostly small in Oneal lake and sonar only showed 5 feet deep in the deepest spots. I've seen some nice crappie out of there. Great for nature lovers.. Horrible for bass fishing.
