About Lake Guntersville State Park
We are excited to announce that the new online camping reservation system is now live. Feel free to make your reservations by using the new online tool, calling the park office or simply walking in. We encourage advance reservations.

Lake Guntersville Resort State Park is located along the banks of the Tennessee River in Northeast Alabama. Whether you are looking for a resort style retreat or an outdoor adventure in the park’s 6,000 acres of natural woodlands, Lake Guntersville State Park will satisfy all your needs. Among the park’s many recreational offerings are an 18-hole championship golf course, the Screaming Eagle Zipline, a beach complex, an outdoor nature center, excellent fishing in Alabama’s largest lake, 36 miles of hiking and biking trails, weekly guided hikes, and a day-use area.
One of the main attractions at the park soars high above all the others. Thanks to conservation efforts, Alabama's nesting bald eagle population is increasing, and Guntersville has become a focal point of Eagle Awareness in the state. Each year, on select weekends in January and February the park’s Eagle Awareness programs entertain and educate the public about our once endangered national symbol.
Making plans for your next organization or company meeting? The massive resort inn, restaurant and convention center is perfect for your group’s next national, state or regional meeting. The convention center boasts meeting facilities large enough to easily accommodate a banquet or opening session as well as smaller breakout rooms to facilitate multiple groups. Make plans now for your next event to ensure availability. Reservations can be taken for up to two years in advance of your event.
