Based on your arrival and departure pattern we could offer a special rate of $99.00, plus 12% lodging tax and $1.00 surcharge for our beautiful bluff side lodge rooms and a special rate of $85.00, plus 12% lodging tax and $1.00 surcharge for our parking lot side lodge rooms. Our bluff side rooms feature 2 queen size beds and terraces overlooking Lake Guntersville while our parking lot rooms feature 1 queen size bed and a patio. For the campers in your group we can offer water & electric sites for $17.00 per night and water, electric and sewer sites for $19.00 per night, plus 12% lodging tax and 25 cent surcharge. These rates include complimentary wi-fi in both the lodge and campgrounds.

For those “down times” in your agenda we have many outside activities that your participants may enjoy. For those that enjoy the outdoors we have 36 miles of walking trails available. The trails are rated from easy to moderate to difficult. We can even arrange for one of our staff to lead an educational hike for your group.

For the Golfers in your group we offer a championship course designed by Jerry Pate. Green fees are $32.00 per person which includes 18 greens and a cart. Additionally, with reserved tee times and booked as a group, a golf package can be created for your group to enjoy.

We also have a zero-entry family pool that allows our lodge guests to skip the stairs and submerge slowly into the pool as they would the ocean. Dressing rooms and restroom facilities are also available and adjacent to our pool area. In addition, we have an indoor steam room and separate sauna in the lower area of the lodge.

For those who would like to visit the downtown area of Guntersville the city of Guntersville can arrange a complimentary shuttle service with pickup and drop offs every half hour. Our downtown area features a number of charming shops and boutiques and our downtown merchants association often offers special discounts and incentives to our lodge guests.

Another activity we can arrange at no charge is educational seminars led by Patti Donnellson our on-site Naturalist. Examples of programs we have done in the past are: Wetlands Walks, Nature Walks, Nature Crafts, Plant Identification, Tracks, Scat and Signs. Our Naturalist can tailor programs to fit your group’s interests.

Lakeside, the Beach Pavilion offers a great place to play in the sand, enjoy a game of beach volleyball or take a dip in beautiful Lake Guntersville. The Beach Pavilion is located next to our beach area and offers showers, dressing rooms, a snack kitchen and shaded picnic tables. The State Park also has several piers available for fishing.

One of the highest points in Alabama

This group puts on an International Rally Every Year. Last year I rode up to Galena Ill. for the last Rally. 15 days, 17 states & 5112.8 miles. I gained 12 pounds with all that great food up there.
