Candy and Bill Curlin bought Sportsman's Resort in 1986. It had been closed for several years. We built this business up from the bottom and worked hard every year. We live at the camp and raised our two daughters here. In 1999 we bought our South Location and with the help of our manager, daughter Billie, it grows every year.
This business on the lake is seasonal since it is not a recreational lake, just a fishing lake. When fishing and hunting is good, our business is good. We had to learn to adjust to the times when business isn't good. We enjoy meeting all the people that come from all across the United States to visit Reelfoot Lake.
