We stayed at the Gulf Shores State Park RV Campground for a week in June & wished that we could have stayed longer! The park is large & very well maintained. ALL sites have sewer & there are both pull thru spots & "back in" spots. Each "loop" of the campsites has their own bath houses (they were very, very... More

I recently made a trip down to Gulf shores and orange beach, Alabama to do some diving. Due to the exorbitant pricing for hotel rooms, I decided to stay at this campground instead in a tent site. The campground is all right. It’s mostly brush and no privacy. The sites are on top of one another. It’s loud with people... More

What a fantastic location. Close to town and far enough away to enjoy the outdoors. All staff were great and helpful. the gentleman at the Wildlife Centre was helpful and really interesting. The fire pits were great to use. Lots to do and see

My family and I camped 5 nights in June and most of the experience met or exceeded our expectations. We were bumped to a back site - this turned out tone great because our site was spacious, private and on a quiet road for the kids to play. The tips we would offer would be do not expect to ever...

First time to GSP. Had a reservation and in 15 minutes we were on our way to our site. Stayed on Bobcat Road, great sites, easy to back in to, all blacktop, full hookups in easy reach. Wash you vehicle or camper, no problem. DId not have fire ring, but we used the barbeque grill for a campfire. First two... More

Nice campground, but was disappointed that they didn't keep a spot open on Gator, since it had been requested at reservation time and they stated it was available. When we asked at the office they stated you have to request not to be switched! WHAT? I understand they don't guarantee a specific site, but if an area is requested, they... More

Highly recommend this wonderful RV park. Sites are large, level and paved. Recommend a site on south side of the road so afternoon sun is not on your patio. Lots to do here. Many great restaurants in the area, beautiful beach, superb pier with good fishing. Most workers are volunteers and are very pleasant.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom lake front cabin for 3 nights. The cabin was very clean. The living room couch and chair were a bit older but fine. A couple window screens needed maintained. Very quiet during the daytime and night but in late April. Abt a 5 minute drive to the beach which was wonderful! The only downside,... More

I have camped at many parks throughout the US. The spaces are BIG. Sewer, water, electric, and the sites are level and paved. Beaches are close by but you have to drivr. No fire rings but they have barbecue stands. Love the park!

Everything was perfect. We had a waterfront site and greatly enjoyed a weekend of beach, sun and fun. Everything about the campgrounds was perfect- checkin was quick fast and easy. Bathhouse was pristine. Our site was spectacular.
