Campground was full, so we parked our pop up camper in the primitive area, was so nice & quiet. Bathhouse was small, only 4 bathrooms in the unit. Shower & toilet in each bathroom, meant long lines to use the bathroom even if not showering.
There were many sites that were spread apart & some were really crunched in. Make sure to check online or call for reservations, all 85 sites were sold out this weekend. One bath house isn’t use & could be in Halloween movie, the other two were older but usable.
There are 2 campgrounds at Reelfoot Lake, the north park (I think, it’s the smaller one) doesn’t have many electric sites.
Hard to get teens to camp with no WiFi, but Pickett had so much to do that we didn’t get done. They cannot wait to go back 😊
My teens loved it & so did I. My girls got to fish in the morning & evening, see deer by our campsite & relax from the August heat in Shoal Creek. We stayed for the weekend for less than $50, amazing deal!
I read a lot before my trip, so I knew to except the 25% grade incline going up to the campground. I wasn’t however expecting the challenging parking in the campsite. Beautiful area, my teens loved it. They found all kinds of insects they had never seen even a Luna moth.
