About this beach

Warnings and hazards

Entrance fees must be placed in the honor box. Failure to pay will result in a fine. 

There's a number of limitations – read the description below!

A great place to spend your weekend. Although a day-visit to Guntersville State Park is a wonderful idea, in my opinion, it’s simply not enough. So pack your travel bag for at least a night and book a place to stay. You have choices of a room, chalet or cottage. 

The beach is man-made and it’s pretty good. Unlike a real beach, the sands here aren’t that soft. There are small pebbles and stones in the water, so watch your step when entering. The beach is clean, the water is too. 

Beach rules

The area is maintained on a daily basis. There are a few simple rules to follow:

  • No animals
  • No glass
  • No grills on the beach

Hours and admission fees

Beach hours are sunrise to sunset. 

The beach area is offered to registered guests and is also open to the public. The following fees for the beach area apply:

  • Ages < 3 - Free entrance
  • Ages 4-11 - $3.00 per person
  • Ages 12+ - $4.00 per person
  • Ages 62+ - Free
  • Veterans / Active Military - Free


Plenty of great amenities on-site. Cookout grills for residents. A small pool and a nice restaurant. And even a golf course.

If you’re not camping, you can leave your car in Aubrey Car Scenic Drive adjacent to the State Park. The fee is $3 only (for the whole day). 

This place is charming during every season, so pay a visit!

Places to stay

You can book a cabin using the official site of the park, but the process is rather cumbersome and impractical.

Luckily, there's a huge number of independently-owned cabins available for rent on VRBO (aka HomeAway) with relevant pictures, reviews, and map location.
