Very nice, very fine place. Lake is amazing, nice . Great place to relax, take in the sights, fishing has to be good. I can see why people flock to this place, we saw it on the way, spent a few hours, wish we could have spent more

This a review for the cabins and the lodge. Two stars are for the timely service of the staff, otherwise this trip would have been a disaster.

When we checked in at the lodge the staff was very friendly. We got the room keys and went to the cabin where the downhill slide of this trip started. The cabin is small... very small, which wasn't a problem. The decor is seriously outdated (1970's, not rustic!!). The carpet had seen better days and there were several black stains on it, despite the staff cleaning the room just before we came. Thin sheets on the bed. Not to mention the bathrooms (which had no doors) were tiny and very utilitarian. You could take two steps from the bed and find yourself in the bathroom! The kitchen had seen better days, the fridge looked as though it was an afterthought. The cabin smelled like smoke, so I guess the cleaners left the doors open which is where all the flies and gnats came in. Not one or two, a small horde of them. After killing about five flies and countless gnats and still having more to go, I called the lodge and they exchanged the room for one at the lodge.

The lodge was the exact opposite of the cabins. A nicely appointed queen bed with pullout parking lot view was the only room they said they had available. Furnishings are very nice and updated. DVD player, fridge and microwave in the room. Small terrace to sit out on. To put in melodramatically, it was like coming to paradise after being you know where. We walked to the terraces to see the stunning view. The restaurant was ok, not a wow factor, but you'll get your money worth.

I wish they would update the cabins to the level of the lodge. Even if it means doing one or two at a time. Right now, it's a place were men intention on fishing, hike, etc. and don't care where they are at would stay. The cabins are not a place I would take my family to stay. If these were updated to take advantage on being right on the lake and having a great place to stay, I would be back. The potential is there, if someone would take the time and money to do it.

This State Park was very large and had a lot to offer. Several years ago they had a tornado so lower level is being renovated with new trees. The lake is very very large and beautiful and plenty of places to dock your boat. From what I was told they have fishing tournaments here as well. Above the campground area they have a very nice lodge with pool, restaurant, chalets and an 18 hole golf course. Bottom level also has cabins that you can rent. Played golf and the course was in good shape. Of course any campground that offers full hookup is a big plus for me and most of the sites had it all. If this park was not so far I would go back.

The views were spectacular. The deer are tame and come out in the evening for close up photo opportunities. The golf course looks like fun and the lodge is right on top of the mountain. The cabins are perfect for fishermen and the camp ground looks great.

We always meet our friends in Guntersville for the day. We always eat lunch and then head to the state park. We usually have dessert in the dining room and then go the bar area. It is rarely open but the view is spectacular. The back wall is all glass, the fireplace is usually lit and we sit and just enjoy the the views. We have stayed in the lodge and also the chalets. If you are in the area, take the time to visit.
