Camping spots vary from large to small, but all are fairly private. All sites have Elec and water. Bathrooms and showers are clean. Wonderful kayaking. Nice hiking.

The small State Park has some nice walking trails with good waterfront access. It has great views from a large waterfront tower with awesome sunrises overlooking the water and distant beach. Friends have camped there and enjoyed it. It has a nice large boat launch too and canoe rentals on one of the inland ponds.

Even on a Sunday afternoon at 1pm, on a beautiful day, there was hardly anyone there. $6 total for my wife and I to get it. We walked a bit, went down to the beach area, drive around, and just checked out the facilities in general. We will definitely go back. Great observation tower at end loop of roadway with... More

My husband and i drove out yesterday to investigate the camp ground. This is definitely a hidden gem. First the campground has electric/water hookup with sturdy picnic tables and most had camp fire rings. A couple even had those iron grills that you see at the beach parks that nothing can destroy. Glad we went to look before we made... More

Big Lagoon is the quieter option to anyone looking to enjoy nature in the Perdido Key/Gulf Shores area. For a few dollars you have access to a park big enough to walk around for a few hours and appreciate the wildlife. You're nearly guaranteed to see cranes, herons, and osprey if you walk by the shore, and I was even... More

Camped at Big Lagoon for several days and had an amazing time. Also took advantage of their kayak rentals which you shouldn't miss out on!

We have stayed at Big Lagoon State Park on 3 separate occasions. Some of the campsites are really nice; others, not so much. If you are going to stay here be sure to make early reservations during peak times. We have a 32' fifth wheel that fit on a site rated for 30'. Some of the sites are rated larger... More

We visited here one day during the week, were on the way to the beach but saw the sign for this park and decided to give this place a try. The kids beach was nice, shallow water but it was VERY warm. We liked the picnic tables with the grills good idea for another day. The board walk and the... More

Kayaking! They have kayaks, canoes, and SUP boards for rent for a decent price, for up to 4 hours. Beautiful beaches which were almost deserted even though we were there 4th of July week. Nice facilities.
