GUNTERSVILLE-June will be filled with many different program options each weekend see all of the events happening at Guntersville Lake State Park.

lgsp seiningWith over 90 species of fish living in Lake Guntersville’s Watershed, there is lots to catch out there! We will spend some time using nets to catch several of these fish species and identify them before releasing them back into the shallow waters. You will also have the opportunity to catch some crawfish and have an up-close look at these fascinating creatures!


Water shoes are recommended – there are lots of rocks and shells on the bottom of the lake!

lgsp clean up Each month our park hosts a litter clean up somewhere throughout the park, to date we have collected over 60 bags of garbage from our roadways and shorelines! Each month we make a small difference in the environment and hope to continue to spread awareness and keep up this momentum for many years to come.

Protecting our environment is so important, especially our waterways, these clean ups are suitable for the whole family and are a great way to teach our younger generations about the importance of recycling and throwing our trash in a garbage can rather than on the side of the road!

All supplies are provided for these clean ups, and we hope to see you soon!

lgsp ct caves Alabama is one of the most biodiverse states in the country, and one of the reasons we rank so high is due to our cave biodiversity. We are a hotspot for unusual species and our extensive cave system in the northeastern park of the state ranks 3rd highest for biodiverse cave fauna in the entire temperate world. Join the Park Naturalist for a fireside chat and learn about some of these cave systems and some of the strange creatures that inhabit them!

lgsp gross out camp If it is icky, stick or gross, it’s Gross Out Camp! Slimy salamanders, slugs, bugs, crawdads and roly polies are all found at Lake Guntersville State Park as campers explore their world at camp through hands-on field biology. (It’s science but please don’t tell the kids.)

Gross Out Camp – June 19th – 23rd

Gross Out Camp – July 17th – 21st

In this award-winning science camp, campers will explore woods and creeks. The camp combines nature studies, live animal demonstrations, journaling, and nature-inspired arts designed to address a variety of learning styles. Activities include Meet-a-Tree (scientific observation), Build-a-Beast (scientific method), and making slime (chemistry, plus it’s fun — and gross).


Campers from 1st through 4th grades learn about plants, trees, animals and chemistry. For older campers, there is a Counselor-in-Training program. There are two weeks of camp to choose from, or choose all: June 19-June 23 and July 17 -21. Camp runs from 9am – 5pm with before and after care available from 8am-6pm. Each camp consists of 20 campers taught by an expert in outdoor education. The cost is $290 for the week, and financial aid is available and provided by EBSCO, the Goodrich Foundation, the Stephens Foundation, Swartz Family Foundation and private donors.


Fresh Air Family guarantees tired, dirty children (who learned a lot!).
