A great place.

We stopped here to park and wait out a bad thunderstorm. We returned the next day and went to the pier. A really nice place to see the ocean and beaches.

This campground is huge. With that being said I made reservations about 6 weeks before we arrived and were placed on possum road. If your going with kids this is a nice road to be on as it is a little less busy. Sites are level and easy to get into and spacious. The beach is literally a few min... More

We went over to the park to check it out since it was just down from our condo. It was nice. We took a bunch of pictures. Its a really nice park and worth the visit if you are in Gulf Shores.

It has been several years but this is lovely Park. Actually before 2014. The sands are wonderful. The Serenity of walking along the beach is worth the visit.

Plenty of things to do. My grandchildren had a blast. My only complaint was the HEAT! I really don't think I can blame the park for that though. It's Alabama in July! Loved the pool and splash pad. And the staff members were all very nice. It's a beautiful park.

There is a range of activities to do here including camping, hiking, fishing, or lounging on the beach. We spent a day at the beach near the large pavilion. The beach was very clean and enjoyable; it was crowded but nothing compared to the public beach. We drove to the headquarters to see more of the park and were impressed... More

I had fun at the beach. Just played in the ocean and sunbathed on the sand. It was clean water and a clean beach with other friendly beach goers.
