Alabama State Parks

state parks Majestic 3
Visit Marshall County’s three Alabama state parks and discover why we call them Majestic.

The LAKE GUNTERSVILLE STATE PARK boasts over 6,000 acres of natural woodlands and overlooks the 69,000-acre Lake Guntersville Reservoir. The park has an 18-hole championship golf course, a beach complex, zip lines, fishing center, boat rentals, hiking trails, nature programs and a modern campground. Lakeside cottages, ridge top chalets and a beautifully-appointed Lodge with a view beyond comparison offer a variety of options for individuals, couples and families looking for a vacation getaway. In addition, the Conference Center at the Lodge provides a perfect backdrop for weddings, meetings, conferences, or social events.

The first thing that you will notice about CATHEDRAL CAVERNS STATE PARK is the massive entrance. The huge opening measures 126 feet wide and 25 feet high. And it gets even better. Inside the cavern, you will find Big Rock Canyon, Mystery River, and some of the most beautiful formations Mother Nature has ever created. Among them, you will see Stalagmite Mountain, The Frozen Waterfall, and Goliath, a huge stalagmite column that reaches the ceiling of the cave some 45 feet above! The cave maintains a comfortable 60-degree temperature year round and is the perfect stop any afternoon.

BUCK'S POCKET STATE PARK is 2,000-acres of secluded land tucked into a natural pocket of the Appalachian Mountains in northeast Alabama. The campground is currently closed to campers, but open as a walk in day use area only. Great for hiking and picnicking with the family.

The view from the trail head is breathtaking and allows visitors to view the mountains and valleys in all their natural splendor. One of the best times to visit the park is during the changing of the seasons when the fall colors explode across the mountain ridge.

Check out some great M3 packages.
