Reelfoot Lake was created in 1811 - 1812 by a series of earthquakes along the New Madrid Fault. The Mississippi River flowed backwards for three days into a forest of cypress trees, cottonwoods, and walnut trees. This shallow lake is still surrounded by these beautiful trees and is a wonderful habitat for many species.
It is without a doubt a fisherman's dream lake. Best known for it's GREAT Crappie fishing, Reelfoot is also home to prize catches of Bluegill and lunker Largemouth Bass. Oh yeah, don't forget about catfishing, it's also truly amazing.
Acorn Point Lodge offers several different packages to accommodate your fishing needs. We also have guides available.
Reelfoot Lake, located in the heart of the Mississippi flyway, is a winter haven for thousands of migratory waterfowl. Surrounded by numerous wetlands, state and federal refuges, Reelfoot Lake is a waterfowler's paradise.
Here at Acorn Point Lodge, we offer waterfowl hunting packages with experienced guides to make you hunt memorable.
Hundreds of bald eagles make Reelfoot lake their home during the winter, returning to the same nests year after year. It's quite a sight to see them dive down to snatch up a fish.
Our location in the Mississippi flyway brings in many species of migratory birds. The lake, marshes, fields, and woods provide habitats that attract many different varieties.
Stay with us at Acorn Point Lodge and enjoy our view of the ever changing waterfront from our lakeside location. We'll help you arrange an eagle tour, offered daily at Reelfoot State Park from December through February.
Of course, Reelfoot lake is also home to other wildlife such as turtles, white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, squirrels, beaver, mink. The list just goes on and on.
