With a 45’ motorhome and tow, we don’t usually find state parks that can accommodate us. Gulf State Park is a fantastic exception. Excellent layout, huge sites, full hook-ups, paved roads-sites-patios, and a selection of pull-thru and back-in sites make this a great base camp for exploring “Lower Alabama”. Staff was friendly and helpful. We visited just as the snowbirds... More

Good amenities. Bay access and free entrance to beach pavilion area provided. Nice park to walk and ride bikes. Lots of spaces and you have your choice of where to park. We were there to visit family. We would definitely choose this location if we were camping.

In June of 2013, we rented two cabins (15 and 16) and took the whole family, including all five grandchildren. We had a blast. Bike riding, beach, swimming pool, nature center, ghost crabbing, you name it, we did it! We had so much fun, my husband and I, along with a friend, are taking our camper for a week in... More

We have camped at Gulf State Park several times now with our grandchildren and love this park. They have a wonderful pool, the grounds are always clean and the staff couldn't be better. We try to stay at least 2 times during the summer and would stay more if schedule allowed. Close to the beach and shopping. One of the... More

We camped at Gulf State park for 5 nights and it was wonderful! The park staff was so nice and helpful. The campgrounds are very well maintained and the campsites are nice sized with full hook-up. This was our first time to vacation in our camper and now we can't wait to go back!

I have camped in many a state park and this is by far the best. You get the beach, a great pool with splash pad for little ones, you can golf, and there is a lake for fishing and boating. The facilities are immaculately clean. We tent camp and I was a bit worried about the heat at end of... More

The campground is top notch with many amenities such as swimming pool and splash pad, great nature center, nice laundry mat and a camp store. Access to the beach is very close and also the bath houses... More

This was our first trip in our camper. The park was much more than I expected it to be. It had all of the hookups needed except cable. We had the local channels and were completely fine with that though. The staff was very kind. No one got in without being seen and I felt safe. The beach in right... More

Loved our week of pop-up camping. All the sites are easy to get into with full hook-up. All facilities are modern and clean. We were on 275 which was by the bathhouse and had a view of the lake. Wi-Fi is a nice touch. The only negatives was the hurricanes have reduced the number of large trees, which means you... More
