From the minute we arrived, we were disappointed with the park, but loved the Island. The parks facilities are inadequate and in bad repair; i.e. The washers and driers have knobs broken off and are rusted, the wifi does not reach the entire park, the spaces in the area we were in are very tight, no effort by the park...

We camped in a 24 foot travel trailer at Dauphin Island Campground on December 12, 2015. The campground is very far south on the island, and on our way we wondered if we were heading in the right direction. It seemed as though we were going to end up on a ferry boat or drive straight into the ocean! The... More

I enjoyed my 2 week stay here at the campground. A very large campsite, one of the first ones as you enter. Felt like I had a big backyard. Access to the beach includes a nice boardwalk and a short walk through the pine forest guarding the campgrounds.

I will start off by saying that I think this place has a lot of potential if they could clean house and improve the facilities. It's a really great location with a beach on the premises and within walking distance of the port, aquarium, fort and bird sanctuary. One more positive note is that the employees were all very nice.... More

We stayed here for six days in mid-September. It was lovely. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the park is clean and well maintained. A big plus for us is that the park and beach is dog friendly. There is an Audubon sanctuary adjacent to the park with well marked trails. Lots of shade trees, pristine beach, and... More

This campground was very well managed. The bath-houses were clean and the water was hot. Sites were a good size and down a short path was the ocean. The beach was clean and the water was relatively clear for the gulf. There is a small camp-store at the entrance that had everything we needed. The campground used to rent bikes... More

We had a family vaca here, stayed for a week. As others stated, making reservations via phone is easy, as long as you don't ask too many questions. The office staff whether on the phone or in person are always in a rush to get rid of you. Upon entering the park our first impression was hmm lol It appears... More

Campground is full of locals that stay the maximum 4 months and they bring their campers, trailers, boats, Gators, gazebos, patio furniture, smokers, and bicycles. Almost every inch of grass is covered and it feels cramped. 2 adult men that were there for the 4 month stay thought it would be very funny to scare an "outsider" by throwing a... More

Tent camped here for a long weekend and was shocked at how close the beach was from our tent...a 5 min leisurely walk through a marsh area! Everyone was really nice and the bathrooms were outdated but clean. The campground was dog friendly and the only thing there is to worry about is the racoons.

This camp site left much to be desired. While the office staff were friendly enough there was often a long wait for service due to staffing shortages. As we were there on a holiday weekend the place was completely booked. That being the case, the restroom/shower facilities needing cleaning more often than the staff provided. And forget about Wifi access.... More
