My wife and I recent went to Reelfoot Lake to see the Eagles (no, not a concert - the REAL eagles). Anyway, we had each been there years ago, but we had not had a guided tour on our first visits. Truly, the best way to see the eagles is with a Tour Guide. Jerry was very pleasant, friendly and... 更多

I drove in near dusk and found a very helpful campground host. I paid $9 for a one night primitive camping site. He wanted to put me near others in a site that was more expensive than what I had paid for, I think to make me feel safe. I was alone and wanted to be away from others and... 更多
The camping ground was the breeding place for a zillion mosquitoes. We had a horrible experience. The staff should have made some effort to employee pest control measures so that campers could have a more pleasant camping experience.
