Fairview-Riverside State Park (Madisonville) is situated beneath a canopy of huge oak trees, where visitors will find numerous picnic tables, as well as a group pavilion, a playground, and comfort stations.
The cool, crystal-clear waters of the Tchefuncte River yield bass, bluegill, white perch, and bream near the park area, and channel catfish, speckled trout and redfish where the river meets the lake. Freshwater fishing from the river bank or a boat offers unmatched delights for even the most casual fisherman. Crabbing in the lake and the river is also popular.
Otis House, a circa-1880 mansion located within the park, is open for tours between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday, except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day.
