Enjoy driving down the gravel roads on Lake Isom NWR, which takes you from the north end of Lake Isom to the south end and winds between row crops and moist soil impoundments.  Nearby, Reelfoot National Wildlife Refuge, only a short drive from Lake Isom National Wildlife Refuge, has a Wildlife Drive/Auto Tour that is approx. 3.5 miles and is dubbed as “one of the best places to go birding in Tennessee”.
