We went to a wedding at the pavilion at the park, and it was a great venue for a wedding. With the ocean in the background and being on the sand it is a great place for a wedding for a beach lover. Also went to the pier while we there and got great views of the ocean with sharks,... More

This is an excellent place to bring your family for a vacation. We Love it here. You are less than 2 miles from beach, you have your private doc, if you stay in one of the cabins on Lake Shelby. They are beautiful. We prefer the cabins in the woods. So peaceful. Love the fishing at the State Pier!!!! All... More

We stayed for 7 nights and had a blast. We brought our camper down and had a beautiful spot on Middle Lake... Great view! We visited the pool a couple of times-- it's a very nice facility-- and went to the beach every day. You can park at the pavilion for free as a camper, and it's just a quick... More

This was our second vacation to Gulf state park. We love this place! You can not ask for a better vacation place for a family with children. Our grandchildren are 9 and 6. When we asked them this year where they wanted to go they said Gulf State Park!! The park is very well maintained and everyone goes out of... More

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
