This is a nice state park. Our site was a cement pad with lots of room and a fire ring. Park is well maintained and the Country Store staff are nice and helpful. The sites by the lake (ours was e-6) have gorgeous unobstructed views. Laundry was $1.50 for wash and $1.50 to dry. We really enjoyed this park, but were very disappointed by the swim beach. The water was warm, however, there is lots of plant life growing in the water making it difficult to swim without getting attacked by flora. It reminded me of seaweed. By the third day, one of my children refused to play in the water and my husband and I chose to sit on the sand instead of cool off. This is not the fault of the state park, but I wanted to let future campers know so perhaps their family doesn't face the let down that we had. We camped at Lake Guntersville State Park in a Motorhome.

This is not just a campground. The state park is vast with a high wooded ridge on which sits a large beautiful lodge with rooms, restaurant, and cabins. 180 degree view overlooking the extensive lake Guntersville and the Tennessean river along which shore is the large campground with boat ramps, docks, swimming areas ,pavilions, a camp store, tennis courts, hiking paths, picnic areas and plenty of room for biking. Most of the tornado damage has been repaired with many new planted hardwood trees. The bathrooms are tiled and the one by us was super clean with a great hot shower. A 9 because a lot of the older sites are not level and need re graveling. There some newly renovated level concrete sites. There are lots of tent sites. We camped at Lake Guntersville State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in a motorhome. Very friendly staff, great views of the lake. There are limited concrete pads, most are gravel. Sites Ê 1-9 are concrete with grills and fire rings. The park was hit by a tornado a couple of years ago, but repairs have been done, but a lot of trees were lost. The park has lake swimming, boat docks, tennis courts, hiking trails and a Resturant and lodge a mile up about the lakeside campground. The only reason I did not give it a 10 was , was they claim a no tent rule in the full hook-up areas, but we saw several tents in that area. We had one guy in a tent near us appear intoxicated.

The park suffered some time ago from tornado damage. The recovery effort has gone well. New trees have been planted, more full hookups, and a better stocked store. I would have given all stars had our site been level and it had not been gravel. The beauty of the area really out ways any minor problems. I continue to recommend this park to my friends as a great place to unwind. We camped at Lake Guntersville State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Our site was not very level. That is surprising as there has been a lot of trees removed due to the storm damage from about a year or so ago. Miss the shade trees on the lower portion of the campground. Our kids enjoy fishing off the dock and the playground is fun for them, too. If you like to geocache, we also found some great ones that are not far from the campground. It has a keypad and guest code with a secure gate.

This campground was hit hard by a tornado several years ago. Many of the trees were lost, therefore most of this large campground is "rebuilding". Many trees have been planted, new fire rings and bathhouses. The interior roads are only fair and the sites are gravel and uneven. Most or the electrical looks new and the Wi-Fi very good. I would rate it higher if the sites were in better shape. The golf course is great and if you like to fish . . . this is the place. We camped at Lake Guntersville State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park suffered massive tornado damage in 2011 and, while recovering, is still showing the effects of the storm. Most of the back-in sites have new power pedestals. Pull-thru sites have not been upgraded as of this writing. Most sites are gravel and need leveling. Turning in the pull-thru area is tight and may limit large rigs. Lake facilities are nice and there is a lovely lodge on the top of the hill overlooking the park. The Wi-Fi service is the best we experienced on our month-long trip. Work on the needed campground improvements continues. We camped at Lake Guntersville State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects weekly rate bridging summer and winter seasons. We stayed one week and at check in the rate was automatically adjusted for the part of the our week that was in the winter season. This is a beautiful lake side park. The entrance is gated. You are provided the entrance code at check in. The facilities are very well maintained, clean, and roomy. There are 3 laundry facilities throughout the park. The park covers a large area and the sites are spacious. You can choose a site close to the lake front, or back by the wooded hillside. Deer wander through the sites by the hillside. Wi-Fi is available throughout the park. The utility connections can be challenging, depending on the site. The sewer connections are sometimes pretty far away from where you would expect them. You may need an extension on your hose. Other sites have the utilities conveniently located. Cable is not provided, but you can pick up some local channels with an antenna. Overall a very nice and comfortable park. We camped at Lake Guntersville State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice state park with great views of Lake Guntersville. FHUs and a friendly staff. Not all sites are level, so bring some blocks. Although we had a pull-through site, the turns were very tight and barely manageable in our 40' motorhome. Plenty of deer in the area in the evenings. We were surprised that we were able to obtain a site over July 4th on a moment's notice. We would return again if in this area, although we were rained out the views were beautiful.

The park was hit by a tornado and most of the lake front spaces were not available. The spaces are very tight. In our opinion the spaces are too tight for the area. It was loud with people playing music. I would not come back. We only stayed one night. The camp host and park staff was very helpful on a matter we had with the sewer.

The sites were close, Lots of loud rude people, There were people racing golf carts. Drinking, just wild! I would have liked this park in the 90's but I have children now. Not a family park. There were many people living there. We camped at Lake Guntersville State Park in a Motorhome.

We are camping here a year or so after the tornado hit. This was our first time to the park, so we weren't sure what to expect. When we first arrived at the park, we were met at the office/store by very friendly staff that assigned us a spot. They told us we could drive around and choose a different spot if we desired, and just call and let them know if we wanted to change. As we entered the park, we immediately saw the devastation that was caused by the tornado. Almost all of the trees in the park are gone, and all but one of the RV sections along side the lake are still being rebuilt. We seriously reconsidered staying there, but I'm really glad we did. We picked a site towards the back end of the park that only had a couple of campers in it. Within an hour or so of getting set up, we had deer walking right up to our camper, which the kids loved. We drove up to the lodge on one day and ate brunch which was very nice (the views from the lodge are incredible), and we tried walking one of the hiking trails, but ran in to a dead end due to all of the fallen trees. We had a great time fishing from the dock and the kids enjoyed the swimming area. All in all, it was a great time, and I am so glad we stayed. At one point, the staff came by and informed us that a storm was coming that evening and we were under a tornado watch, which we really appreciated. Just keep in mind that this is a state funded park, and they are doing their best to recover from such a devastating storm. We look forward to camping there again in the future.

Last years tornado damage aside the park sites need attention. It appears that it has been many many years since sites have been graded. The gravel pads barely resemble pads from the years of heavy use. Nature will take care of the tornado damage, which is quite extreme. The human touch of gravel & grading will take care of the rest. We camped at Lake Guntersville State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed for three days. There was a lot of construction going on but away from the campgrounds that were opened. The sites were fairly leveled and had little shade.There was only one bath house functional. We took the time to visit the lodge as well the golf course.The lodge was beautiful with a very nice view of the lake. The golf course suffered tree losses but was open. This no doubt will be a little jewel in the future. We camped at Lake Guntersville State Park in a Travel Trailer.
