The community is near the Obion River, several miles inland from the Mississippi River. The 2,293-acre (928 ha) Bogota Wildlife Management Area is one of several waterfowl hunting areas that the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency maintains in the Obion River floodplain. Flood waters reached Bogota in May 2011 when the Mississippi River flooded.
Bogota was mentioned in the NBC show Third Watch in season 6, episode 15, "Revelations," which originally aired on February 11, 2005. A Vietnam War-era American soldier said on his death bed that he had only wanted to grow wheat on the family farm in Bogota.
