I spent one night here. Well groomed and shady. Very popular place as it appeared to be about half full on a Tuesday. Various items show their age but still functional (tables, rest rooms/showers). I did notice one of the restrooms had a washer and dryer. Staff was friendly and helpful. It was a little buggy especially at dusk. Would not hesitate to stay here again. We camped here in a Tent.
Reelfoot Lake State Park was an overnight stop for us, but what a nice campground and beautiful Lake. Our Verizon MiFi worked well, TV reception with an antenna would bring in a couple of channels. Water, electric, at your site with a dump station as you exit or enter the park. The camp host was friendly, and helpful! The park camping sites were level, and previously we had read other reviews that said 35' was the largest they could accommodate, however that is not the case. There were much larger rigs than our 35' motorhome parked easily. I am sure it is a great place for fisherman being so close to the Lake. It was quiet and a nice place to visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good Park. Paved roads and fairly level sites. Park shows signs of lack of State funding though and needs some TLC to facilities although office staff were very friendly and helpful. Only about 65 miles from home and will definitely go back. Maximum RV length of 35 feet. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Loved it. Beautiful site right on the lake. The natural environment is beautiful. The sites are clean and well spaced. Staff very friendly. Bath houses clean. Nice restaurant in walking distance. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
August of 2011 - The park IS OPEN, and is still undergoing some renovation due to flood damage. Easy to find (lots of state park signage) and easy in/out even in a big rig with toad. We stayed here 3 nights, good sites, right on Reelfoot Lake. Cheap too, $20 basic site, $25 waterfront. Bath houses have been redone: bright, clean, and breezy. Had a back in site, good and long, no problems with electric or water, good dump station. Got several digital TV stations even with all the great big trees there. Didn't try our dish, but saw several others who did. Take note that there are a lot of bugs here! Mosquitoes are present around this lake everywhere, including in the bathhouses - even despite being cleaned every morning. Just bring some personal bug spray and some bug strength windshield washer fluid & you'll be fine. Good lake view restaurant right down the street. This place is rumored to have the best fishing in Tennessee! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Reelfoot Lake is a nature lover's dream. We took the 3 hour boat tour. It is $9 and you sign up at the visitors center. Best $9 we have spent in a long time. From what I understand the fishing is great and they give eagle tours in the winter. The campground was clean and all very friendly. They give both a Golden Age and Golden Access discount. We payed just $27 for a 3 night lake site as we got both discounts. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
