More about our state parks:

One of the main attractions of Lake Guntersville State Park soars high above all the others. Thanks to conservation efforts Alabama's nesting bald eagle population is increasing, and Guntersville has become a focal point of Eagle Awareness in the state. If you're a thrill-seeker, Lake Guntersville has a zip line called the Screaming Eagle.

Cathedral Caverns State Park is an excellent field trip for school, church or other groups because the cave maintains a comfortable 60 degrees temperature year round! The park itself encompasses 493 acres, and there are marked hiking trails available for those wanting to enjoy the outdoors.

Looking for spectacular bass fishing? Buck's Pocket State Park is secluded in a natural pocket of the Appalachian Mountain foothills, the pocket itself is on an upstream tributary of Lake Guntersville. Seven miles downstream at Morgan’s Cove is a boat launch and fishing area on Lake Guntersville, noted for bass fishing.
