Event Series Event Series: Deep Swamp Canoe Float

Deep Swamp Canoe Float

Sat., March 18, 1:00 pm-Sun., March 19, 9:00 am


Join our experienced naturalist for a three-hour canoe float through seldom explored areas of Reelfoot Lake. Observe old growth cypress forest, a heron rookery and an eagle nest as we leisurely paddle through the cypress swamp. Exciting sights include large fish swimming, ducks taking flight and the occasional snake making an appearance. A variety of bird life such as songbirds, ducks, herons, owls, or an eagle usually shows up to check out the canoeist. This is one of the most unique adventures offered in West Tennessee!

Canoe Floats depart from Reelfoot Lake State Park’s Visitor Center. Three-hour canoe floats will be at 1:00 pm on Saturday and 9:00 am on Sunday. Canoe floats will be every weekend in March and April. State Park provides canoe, life jacket and paddles. Fees are $20 per person to rent canoe or to use your own canoe or kayak. Optional for you bring:  hat, sunscreen, snack, drink, change of clothes, camera and binoculars in a waterproof, floatable container.  Upper body strength is needed.

* Float locations may change depending upon wind or water level.
* May have to have a $3.50 Reelfoot Preservation Permit
