Tourism is a driving force in our economy in Lake County, Tennessee. We are home to Reelfoot Lake State Park, a popular destination for outdoor and wildlife enthusiasts, and the Reelfoot Arts & Crafts Festival, which features authentic craftmanship from over 250 vendors.
Reelfoot Lake State Park
Reelfoot Lake State Park is a 280-acre outdoor paradise for fishers, boaters, and bird-watchers. Reelfoot Lake, which came into existence through a series of earthquakes that significantly altered the area's geography, is located within the park and is highlighted by the majestic cypress trees which line the boardwalks winding through the park. Visitors can also enjoy part of a 25,000-acre wildlife refuge, home to many shorebirds, wading birds, and acquatic plants and flowers.
Reelfoot Arts & Crafts Festival
The Reelfoot Arts & Crafts Festival takes place over the course of three days, beginning at the end of the September and extending into October. More than 40,000 people attend the event annually, and The Tennessee Magazine has named it the best arts and crafts festival in the state. Exbititors showcase pottery, Native American crafts, and wood crafts, among many others.
