The park has a lot to offer. We saw eagles, white pelicans, deer, and many other animals. The hiking trails are clearly marked. The staff at the lodge is very nice. They will answer all of your questions.

A very beautiful state park that offers camping, fishing and other outdoor activities. We were stopped in our tracks by three deer standing in the road. You definitely share the place with nature.

Very Deluxe camping set up that is well maintained by the volunteers that live there. We were there in the winter so it was super quiet. Roads winding through massive rock formations, up and down steep ravines and along impressive ridge tops. Of course the...More

This is a Hugh lake and very busy. A lot of boats and fisherman so I will assume there are a lot of fish. We just enjoyed looking across the water and enjoying the spectacular sunsets.

We enjoyed the beauty of the drive through the park and the friendly staff. But, and this is a huge BUT, it’s just not up to snuff for tent camping (which is why we went). The tent sites are tiny, there’s almost no shade. There’s...More

We just drove through the park and there are some gorgeous views of the lake. The campground is wide-open (maybe the result of a 2011 tornado) so if you like wooded campsites, this isn't for you.More

Lake Guntersville State Park -roads leading to (6 Replies)
Hoping travelers from IL see this and reply. Two things: I am wondering about the best route from Chicago and..... My main concern is how challenging the road is up to the mountain. I called the Park and was told it twists and turns a lot. I deal with vertigo issues so was wondering how bad it really is. I certainly don't want to set anything off as I never know how something will affect me. I HOPE this is the only place if we drive there we have to deal with mountainous rds. We are...More
