The town of Samburg was named for the man who ran a store in the town in the early 1900's. Situated on the southern shore of historic Reelfoot Lake, Samburg thrives as a tourist destination year-round. Samburg attracts thousands of visitors to town for fishing trips to Reelfoot Lake during the summer and spring months and for waterfowl hunting during the fall and winter months.
Visitors also come to town during the winter months to catch a glimpse of the bald eagles that call Reelfoot Lake their home. And when you're not enjoying the great outdoors, you can also duck inside one of the many fine restaurants that offer up plates of fried crappie and catfish.
