About Us

Reelfoot Lake, nestled in Northwest Tennessee, provides hunters and fishers an outdoor experience like no other. The lake was carved by a series of seismic events over two centuries ago, and offers a diverse ecosystem of wildlife, making it a prime destination for hunters and anglers alike.

Renowned for its premier waterfowl hunting opportunities, Reelfoot lake is home to mallards and wood ducks. Hunters can experience the thrill of the chase with our fully insured guide services ready to set you up on the hunt of a lifetime against the backdrop of stunning cypress trees and marshlands.

Home to an array of fish species including crappie, bass, and catfish, Reelfoot Lake’s fertile waters offer endless opportunities for both seasoned anglers and beginners. Whether you prefer fishing from the comfort of a boat or the serenity of a shoreline, Reelfoot Lake promises a bounty of catches to reel in. Our guides know the waters and habits of the fish swimming below to help you navigate to all the sweet spots, helping you maximize your time on the water.

After a day in the blind or out in the boat, unwind at the lodge. The Jackpot Lodge comfortably sleeps ten guests and has a full kitchen with brand new appliances, common area, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms. The lodge has WIFI, and is the perfect place to relax in the evenings. Owner Kenny Allen outfitted the lodge with some of the most comfortable mattresses you will ever sleep on, ensuring you’re well rested and ready for your outdoor adventure the next morning.

Man o man, where do I start with JackPot lodge!!? I absolutely LOVE that it’s literally on the water. Myself and 8 of my buddies booked/ used it for duck hunting. Everything is brand new and so clean and well kept, immaculate. It says it can sleep 9-10 comfortably but I honestly think it can sleep 12-13 because those couches definitely got used as well. We woke up rolled outta bed and literally went through the back door into the boat. We was able to sleep right down to the last minute before the guides showed up. Can’t wait to take an another group of my buddies and or family here again. Thank you JackPot lodge for a stay and hunt I’ll never ever forget!

Jackpot Lodge is perfect for duck hunting or fishing trips. The lodge is clean and sleeps a bunch of people with plenty of room. It’s great for a group weekend trip. Full size bunkbeds and nice bathrooms. Kitchen had everything we needed. The dock out to the water is convenient. We had a great hunt and will defiantly be back out to Jackpot.
