Navy Lakes and Picnic Areas
Located on the north side of Naval Support activity Mid-South, this is the venue for several of the community’s biggest special events. The “Flag City Freedom Celebration-Independence Day Fireworks Spectacular” and the “Smokin’ by the Lake Barbecue Cooking Contest” alone draw thousands of visitors to Navy Lake.
This serene setting, covering approximately 50 acres of gently rolling hills and pastureland includes three beautiful lakes stocked and ready for fishing. Bring your group or family to enjoy spending the day at one of our group-friendly picnic sites. Sitting on a hill overlooking Navy Lake, the Lake House is an ideal location for family/school reunions, company parties, birthdays, retirements, lake front weddings and conferences.
The Lake House’s rustic decor and modern conveniences provide the best of both casual and outdoor entertaining. The focal point of the gathering room is a huge fireplace that is virtually surrounded on all sides by large windows that provide a beautiful view of the lake. The Lake House can be rented for family reunions, company picnics or private parties. Bring your own food or choose to have our staff coordinate catering services with your Lake House reservations. The hallmark of our catering menu is our famous all-you-can-eat southern barbecue package.
Picnic areas and the Lake House are available for rent weekdays, 10 a.m. to midnight and weekends and holidays, 9 a.m. to midnight. More than 14 picnic sites are located on the grounds for group functions such as command picnics, club events and family fun.
Navy Lake is just the spot to stage a group or individual outdoor retreat. There are many relaxing recreational activities to enjoy on this 50-acre setting. Take out a canoe for the day on one of the three lakes on the property or fish the stocked lakes for bass, bream, catfish and crappie (TN fishing license required). Check out one of the volleyball or horseshoe sets for an afternoon game or walk/hike the many groomed trails that meander around the lakes and pastureland of this serene setting. For scenic tent camping options, campers may choose any site within our extra large tent camping area located across from the RV hook-up sites. Campsites are equipped with a firebox and picnic table and portable restrooms are conveniently located around the tent camping area. Although a variety of recreational equipment is available for rent at the Lake House Gear Issue, camping equipment is not available at this time.
Navy Lake is open to all MWR authorized patrons and the general public. For reservations and/or for more information, call (901) 872-3660.
