Nov 5, 2018 - Lake Guntersville State Park (9/7 - 9/9/18)

We have been here before, but it is such a beautiful place. We stayed in site E3, right across from the bathhouse. We weren't able to get a site right by the water, but still had a great view of the lake. We just love this park. On Saturday we drove to Collinsville for Trade Day. It is a big flea market that is open every Saturday of the year. It was much busier this time than when we were here before. The weather was much better, in fact quite warm. We even made a few purchases. It was a nice drive over and back and we picked up a couple...

Oct 24, 2011 - Seeing More of Alabama

After a nice breakfast, we decided a change of our original plans was in order due to the weather changes so rather than going out on their pontoon boat we would instead drive southeasterly to Lake Guntersville and get to experience the beauty of the area. Guntersville Lake (generally referred to locally as Lake Guntersville) is located in north Alabama between Bridgeport and Guntersville. Created by Guntersville Dam along the Tennessee River, it stretches 75 miles (121 km) from Guntersville Dam to Nickajack Dam. It is Alabama's largest...

Apr 26, 2010 - First Leg - Dande Girl headed Down the Tenn-Tom

Roger & Page left Apr. 25 & spent two days traveling to Iuka, MS. Very windy after Tornado-laden storms swept the southeast. There was a crew change and boat cleaning. Sister Dianne dropped off Jack & Van and brought Page back to her car in Guntersville. The Kilgore clan is a mean, clean, boat-moving machine.

Jul 7, 2008 - Guntersville Al

We left home Sat morning to deliver the Airstream trailer to Gunnersville Al. The couple that bought it live in Virginia, but have bought 91 area in Al and wanted the trailer to stay in when they are here. They are very nice people, we enjoyed both of them and the local people that we met through them. We all ate lunch at the state park which is a few miles down the road. This was not like any state park I have ever been to, beautiful building and very fancy resturant. We have really been impressed with the area. We drove to Cornith Ms the...

Nov 20, 2007 - The stars fall on Alabama or Boiled peanuts

That's a lovely state slogan, don't you think?: The stars fall on Alabama. Two nights ago, I was thinking, "Yeah, right." But we had a beautiful drive, today. Fall is at its peak now, and we saw some peaceful country as we drove from Tuscaloosa to Fayette and on. In Fayette, we visited OC Sudduth, cousin to folk artist Jimmy Lee Sudduth. He and another cousin, "Dorothy Girl" (that's what Jimmy called her) were getting an old metal wash tub and chair out of a garage to take to the Fayette Art Museum to add to the Jimmy collection. The museum...

Aug 18, 2004 - Guntersville, Alabama, heading home to Missouri

Upon departing Navarre, having said our so longs to Mike and Vina we headed north out of Florida and into the state of Alabama. Our scenery of coastlines and crowded streets had now changed to one of hills and farms. Mike was driving to Montgomery today, so we may very well see him along the way, but he probably was ahead of us as his appointment was early and we got a late start. Our internet friends lived in Albertville, AL. very close to the State Park at Guntersville Lake where we had reservations for two nights. The closer we got to...
