Perfect for boaters and can take a boat to some of the restaurants. Plenty of trees and wildlife. It is a beautiful asset to the area. Campground areas and cabins that can be rented. The lodge on the area has a restaurant and bar.

It had been years since visited the lake. Its beauty did not disappoint. The TN river creates beautiful lakes and the people of AL maintain fabulous places to eat.

Lake Guntersville has something for every member of the family, fishing for Dad, shopping for Mom, water sports for the kids. Some very good restaurants fast food too. Enjoy a weekend or more at the Lake.
