Experience your next adventure at Lake Guntersville

Experience your next adventure at Lake Guntersville. From the daredevil with a need for speed, to the quiet nature lover, the lake offers something for everyone. And, we are open all year long!


Just a few miles from the lake’s shoreline, you can experience the new ORV (Off-Road Vehicles) trail at Buck’s Pocket State Park. It’s fast and it’s gritty. Not your momma’s choice for Sunday afternoon fun, but we promise you’ll come back for seconds.

Miles of trail, some challenging, some peaceful. Grab your boots or your wheels and head to the lake. With over 30 miles to choose from, your options are open and the views are spectacular.

Is there a thrill seeker hiding inside you?  A visit to Screaming Eagle Ziplines at Lake Guntersville State Park is just what you need. View the lake from 190 feet in the air as you zip through the treelines. This course features 10 zips and 7 super zips guaranteed to make your heart pound.

Lush fairways and mountain views are what you can expect if you venture onto the greens near the lake. Golfers will find the scenery as majestic as the courses are challenging, although you don’t have to be a pro to find your fit.
