The traffic on the water was high, but all in all a good stay. Lake Guntersville is beautiful but at times highly trafficked. Too many people not respecting fishing space..

I reviewed Lake Guntersville earlier and accidentally hit one-star. We love this lake and it is definitely a 5-star place to visit!

The lake is beautiful, clean and huge! The lake has a wonderful history being a manmade lake built in the 1930's by the TVA. I really enjoyed the history and the wonderful views.

Spent an afternoon on the lake in a large pontoon. Cruised for 4 hours. The weather was perfect, the lake beautiful. Water not as clear as I'm used to from Up North (WI), but did swim.

The greens were beautiful. The Pro Shop was primitive but nice and the gas-powered golf carts were peppy. Beautiful surroundings and a lovely place to sit and enjoy a beer after you've had a round of golf. Will definitely be going back
