About this beach

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. 

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!
