Reelfoot Lake is one of the Natural Wonders of the World and has long been a paradise for all outdoor enthusiasts and photographer’s.  Formed by the great earthquakes of 1811-1812 the Lake covers approximately 18,000 acres and has an abundance of wildlife, birds and beautiful scenery.  The Lake’s unique atmosphere is truly one of Tennessee’s most valuable hidden treasures.  Annually, thousands of visitors discover Reelfoot Lake for the first time.  Many return again and again to enjoy its pristine waters, colorful scenery and relaxing atmosphere.
Reelfoot Lake is located in the Northwest corner of Tennessee and three miles from the Mississippi River. Within a day’s drive of many major cities including Memphis, St. Louis, Knoxville, Nashville, Little Rock, Indianapolis, Cincinnati & Chicago.
This shallow Cypress Field waters are recognized as one of the world’s greatest natural fish hatcheries. Among the 50 species of fish that call Reelfoot Lake home are largemouth bass, catfish, bream and crappie.  During the summer months American Lotus covers hundreds of acres on the east side of the lake. It is a perfect place for Fishing, Hiking, Biking, Canoeing, Kayaking & Birding. We are located on the Mississippi Flyway.
