We stayed here 9/10-9/11. The lady in the check in office was very friendly and helpful. The park ranger drove through a couple times and waved. The campground was less than 25% occupancy. It was very quite even with a half dozen pre/early teens a couple spots down. There are several signs that say" alcoholic beverages strictly prohibited". Being right on the lake mosquitos can be a problem. I never had a problem with them but the guy across the street and the camper in the next slot fought them like crazy. The bathrooms and showers were clean but there some dead bugs/mosquitos on the sink area. The bathrooms/shower area was a little dated but the water was HOT, shower head worked with good pressure. No complaints here about them. The grass was mowed everything looked weed-eated, not round-upped. I did not see any trash on the ground anywhere. The dumpster areas were even clean of trash laying around. The water pressure at the sites were very good. I looked at 7-8 other spots and the electrical boxes I checked all had 50,30 and 20 amp hook ups. Pretty shady campground cypress trees everywhere. Lots of the sites are short so pay carefull attention when booking them on thier site. Number 9 is short but nice view of the lake. I live 25 miles away from this place but I will definitely go back. We camped at Reelfoot Lake State Park, South Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Several good restaurants close by from right next door to 5 miles away. Some of them have gift shops. There is a flea market about 4 miles down the road every weekend. And you can rent boats near by if you want to fish on the lake. There is a museum down the road that's pretty good and they have injured Eagles, Hawks and owls that you can look at pretty close up.

Paved pads on beautiful and unusual lake setting. Camp grounds looked to be well used but relatively clean. We camped at Reelfoot Lake State Park, South Campground in a Truck Camper.

If every state park were like this I would be a happy girl. Beautiful paved, flat, wide sites with picnic table, grill and fire pit. On the Mississippi River. Exceptionally clean bathrooms and showers and even a small laundry. Well done, Tennessee! We camped at Reelfoot Lake State Park, South Campground in a Motorhome.

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 at Reelfoot Lake State Park, South Campground 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 at Reelfoot Lake State Park, South Campground 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 at Reelfoot Lake State Park, South Campground 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 at Reelfoot Lake State Park, South Campground in a Motorhome.
