Reelfoot Lake was created by a series of earthquakes (New Madrid) during the winter of 1811-1812. The earthquakes crumbled bluffs, uplifted other land areas, and created large sunken areas. One of these sunken areas filled with water and Reelfoot Lake was born. Reelfoot Lake is the largest natural lake in Tennessee, 15,000 acres at elevation 280'.
