Reelfoot Lake is a shallow natural lake located in the northwest portion of Tennessee, United States of America. Much of it is really more of a swamp, with bayou-like ditches (some natural, some man-made) connecting more open bodies of water called basins, the largest of which is called Blue Basin. Reelfoot Lake is noted for its bald cypress trees and its nesting pairs of bald eagles. It is the site of Reelfoot Lake State Park.
According to the United States Geological Survey, Reelfoot Lake was formed when the region subsided during the New Madrid earthquakes of 1811-1812. Several eyewitnesses reported that the Mississippi River flowed backward for 10-24 hours to fill the lake, but it is most likely that waves from the quake caused the river to appear to flow upstream. The earthquakes resulted in several major changes in the landforms over a widespread area with shocks being felt as far away as Quebec.
