28 Reviews of Lake Guntersville
Not my favorite

clean bathrooms (showers, toilets, and water); easy and short hiking trail; fishing, boating, and swimming (beach) access; RV and primitive sites; park store with snacks, firewood, etc.; playground and other outdoor sport/activity areas. it is more focused on family recreation and relaxation (like cookouts) and less on hiking and other outdoor activities for the more experienced.

Great fishing, lots of activities.

Tornado damage is still somewhat evident. Lost a lot of trees.

Campsites have full hookups some have 50 amp. Sites are in need of some freshning up with additional gravel. Bath house is clean.

Park has a lodge with a great restraunt. Store where you check in has ice and firewood.

Good park

Full hookup sites. Great views. Due to tornados in recent years, there are not many trees.

Going up

Lake Guntersville State Park, Guntersville, Al

We visited Lake Guntersville State Park for, you guessed it, a Trail Run event! This is an old school state park with a lodge and campground. They have incorporated new school though by adding a zip line area next to the lodge. 

  Then you have the lake, the Tennessee River runs through Lake Guntersville , (from the Ohio River, through Decatur, Al to Chattanooga , Tn) so a float trip through the area would be feasible with at least one over night stop at the Lake Guntersville Campground which is right on the lake. 

The campground is spread across a wide area, not much shade though. Not a lot of privacy, you are gonna see a lot of your next site neighbor. The sites are not huge, however they are large enough to set up base camp for your outdoor activities. Open year round. The showerhouse was heated and maintained, not horror movie scary at all.

Directly across from the campground entrance is a trailhead that goes UP the “hill” to the lodge and a pretty sweet view of the surrounding area. 

 The main attraction is the water sports, but the trails are challenging and worth exploring. You can spend a week and do something different every day including just sitting on the lodge deck and taking in the scenery. 

Best place I've camped in my life

They have great facilities (super clean and conveniently placed). The locals are very helpful and welcoming. They were hit by a tornado a few years back and it took out a lot of trees and cleared a lot of beautiful landscape but since then they have worked hard to bring the beauty back and it's working on a huge scale! It's a wonderful place to hike the mountains and fish, bring the camper and relax, or just pack a tent and a cooler to enjoy the veiw. The lake is gorgeous and big! The best fishing I've had in Alabama is at Guntersville St. Park!

Lake Guntersville SP, AL

Nice place to camp, boat & fish. Sites seemed a little tight but not too bad. Did I mention Great place for boating and fishing!

Great Place

A few years ago a tornado took out a lot of the big pines so it's a bit hot with very little shade. But it's still the best place to camp around Guntersville!
