Kayaking at Lake Guntersville State Park

Rate this Adventure

Added by Kendra Isbell

Bring your kayaks and your camping gear for a day of floating and a night on the lakeside!

Lake Guntersville State Park is a publicly owned recreation area located on the far north side of the city of Guntersville in Marshall County, Alabama. The state park occupies 5,909 acres on the eastern shore of Guntersville Lake, a 69,000-acre impoundment of the Tennessee River.

Lake Guntersville State Park is the perfect place to spend the day - or night! With multiple spots to throw your kayaks in the water, and plenty of lakeside camping spots, you’ll want to make it a day trip or an overnight float-and-camp trip. You’ll find beautiful views all around and lots of good places to grab lunch within a 20 minute drive. 

We put our kayaks in at Town Creek Fishing Center, a small area with a boat ramp, boat rentals and a bait/snack shop. Float along the bridge and back through Town Creek, or venture under the bridge into the Tennessee River heading toward the campground area! There are plenty of places to float or paddle - you won’t be disappointed!
