Not community friendly, or even friendly. If you are a biker or a runner, I would not go there. Their "store" is not stocked with much that you can use. The person in charge has "forbid" racing there. They even complained when groups of bikes...More

Many people bring their boats or rent them from the bait shop. Fishing is the main attraction. However there is also an archery range, a mountain bike trail and a very popular hiking/running trail, plus picnic tables and restrooms. The terrain is pretty flat, but...More

Fishing in the lake seems to be the main attraction. There is a concession to buy bait and rent boats. However, most folks I saw were walking or biking. A long trail borders the lake, which ensures a colorful ride. There are tables for picnic....More

Herb Parsons Lake and surrounding park is only a short drive from the greater Memphis area and is well worth the drive to get out into a beautiful setting to enjoy nature. A well defined hiking/cycling trail surrounds the lake and the picnic areas are...More

This is a great place to take a picnick or go fishing. The lake is hit or miss on fishing and there is a very low speed limit on the lake so no ski time fun
