Canoe Floats

Join our experienced naturalists for a three hour canoe float through seldom explored areas of Reelfoot Lake. Trips depart from the visitor center every weekend in March and April on Saturdays at 1:00 p.m. and Sundays at 9:00 a.m. Observe old growth cypress forest, a heron rookery and an eagle nest as we leisurely paddle through the cypress swamp. Large fish swimming, ducks taking flight and an occasional snake making an appearance add excitement to the trip. A variety of bird life such as songbirds, ducks, herons, owls, or eagles are occasionally seen flying high over the lake. We suggest you bring snacks, drinks, a change of clothes, a camera and binoculars in a waterproof, floatable container. Donations are accepted and can be placed in donation box inside the visitor center. For more information and to make reservations please call 731-253-9652.
