Attractions Located in and around Lake Guntersville State Park

Lake Guntersville State Park has many attractions within one place. Fishing from our 69,000-acre lake, renting a pontoon, canoe, or flat bottom fishing boat, hiking miles of trails, enjoying interpretive programs, relaxing in a lakeside cottage or mountain top chalet, kicking back to relax in the campground, enjoying the beautiful sand beach, and taking to the greens on our 18-hole championship golf course, is just a sampling of things to do while visiting this paradise of nature.
