5 Ways to Spend Spring Break at Lake Guntersville

Whether you want a week-long getaway or a short overnight stay, we have fun things for you and your family to do this Spring Break.

  1. Head inside a cave! Cathedral Caverns State Park is remarkable treasure we are happy to call ours in Marshall County, Alabama. This cave once housed Native Americans hundreds of years ago. When you take a tour at the state park, you will learn how this cave came to be with stalagmites and stalactites. You will see shark teeth stuck in the ceiling, an underground river and total complete darkness at the end of the tour! To make reservations, call 256-728-8193. You can even stay at the park at their brand-new cabins or if you like to camp or have an RV, check out their new campground!
  2. Rent a kayak! Drive over to the Town Creek Fishing Center and rent a kayak (or a pontoon, if you prefer) and head out on the water to look for some wildlife. The waters are calm and easily navigable making this a calming yet rewarding paddle. There are also tandem kayaks if you want to head out with your friend.
  3. Chow down on local favorites! The Marshall County area has a lot of good, local cuisines that the locals appreciate, and the tourists keep coming back for. You can find Cajun cuisines like boudin balls, freshly caught seafood, handmade American burgers and so much more. We have some of our favorite ‘Top Eats’ but every restaurant can be found on our site here.
  4. Throw an axe! Head into Boaz to Yonah Axe to try your hand at axe throwing. The staff there will make sure to get you pointers on hitting the bullseye. You receive different types of axes from smaller weighted to overall bigger axes for the stronger person of your group. They have pizza available and beer too making it a great hangout for you and your best buds.
  5. Learn some history! Lake Guntersville is Alabama’s largest lake spanning 69,000 acres. But before the lake was land owned by locals. The history of those who owned land where the lake now stands, and much more can be found at the Guntersville Museum. The Arab Historic Village is also a great place to learn about the City of Arab and see how locals lived back in the early 1900s. Lastly, the Albertville Museum takes you on a journey of Marshall County’s largest city with artifacts.
