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.
