Little Mountain Marina Camping Resort, Lake Guntersville, AL June 5-13, 2010

These are pictures of our week long trip to Little Mountain Marina Camping Resort on Lake Guntersville, AL.

This campground is a mini resort with a marina for boating, mini golf, shuffleboard, horseshoes, basketball, tennis, a game room, and three swimming pools. They also have several indoor and outdoor pavillions, and a church on the property. This is a membership campground, but also have nightly rates. We were in site 329 with electric, water, and sewer. There is no cable (and no on-air TV reception), and no Wi-Fi.

We met up here with some of our other camping friends from DISBoards (Disney friends).

Rick waitin on the coals to put steaks on the grill

It was hot, lots of fans outside.

There was a fox that came through the campground every evening.

I love my little twinkle lights. Enough light to see by and doesn't attract as many bugs.

Bingo on Friday evening.

On our way to the campground (these pictures are in no particular order!!!)
The campground was close enough that we took separate cars, so we could both run errands and appointments when needed.

The T@B just follows along :-)

We alwasy bring extra chairs for company to drop by!

I think this is the first time the Acura has EVER been parked in the grass
The gas station and mini-mart right down the road. Decent selection of groceries and fishin supplies, but expensive!! Major stores are 20 miles away!!

The lake through the trees.

Just before breaking down the last day. Another GREAT outing in the Mouse-ke-T@B!!!!
Thanks for Reading!!!!!
(150 Miles)
Coming next, a weekend at Fort Wilderness at Disney for Fourth of July!!! (Yes, I know, AGAIN!!) We love hangin with friends down there :-)

what section do you park in in fort wilderness with the popups or the other and does it matter. is there an area that you would avoid at fort wilderness? we are taking the autotrain with our car and our T@B and are looking forward to seeing what disney is like.

I have stayed in all levels of campsites at Fort Wilderness. The partial hookup sites have water, electric and cable, so you'll need something to catch your grey water in. Then you can dump it at the comfort station.

All of the other levels have water, electric, sewer, and cable. Full, Preferred, and Premium.

The Premium sites are the most expensive and are all concrete, so if you have the Thermarest Screen room you may need to avoid those sites. If you get a Full Hookup try not to get 1900. The sites are very narrow back there.

All other Loops are Great!!
