Enjoyed Reelfoot Lake State Park. Spotted some bald eagle nests and saw a bald eagle in a tree. Wonderful scenery. more »
Very historical site. There is plenty of places to hike along the water and see different wild life. If you are into turtles this is your place! You can find guided hunts and fishing for a great experience. Also hosts many bass tournaments with plenty of prizes. Local restaurant all have good food and several local hotels right on the water. Plenty of camping areas and the spillways are fun to watch. Plenty of chances to catch huge fish or a huge mess of crappie if that's what you want. Some of the local restaurants have live music sometime. The museum there is a great place to learn about the animals and land and lore. As a child the earthquake simulator was always fun!
Beautiful lake. We took a boat for an educational tour. Very relaxing. Our guide was very informative of the lakes history and the surrounding wildlife.
