Arrival was super easy and had help with parking and getting settled. Very large park and yes alot of people. However, everything was very quiet and the bathrooms are clean, large and private. Beach was beautiful of course and stores are close.

A perfect family vacation. Almost canceled due to weather forecast but decided to chance it and am glad we did! Park staff was amazing and the park itself was fabulous. The beach was gorgeous and the clean pools at the end of the day were very welcome. Our site was clean and I really appreciated the noise curfew secondary to... More

We had high hopes for this campground as it has been our list to visit for awhile. My husband got up at 5:30am to set up our beach chairs only to have a family sit right on top of us when they arrived at 9:30. There was plenty of room for them to sit but oddly enough they didn't see... More

We are sorry to hear that you we uncomfortable in the July Summer crowd. We would like to invitee you back at a less busy time. June/July is the busiest time of the year here, as you might imagine. Much of the rest of the year has a lower occupancy and still good weather, not too mention lower rates. Sounds... More

This was our first long distance camping trip as a family. In our group we had 7 people total; my husband, mother in law, 17 & 16yr old daughters, and 4 & 5yr old daughters. Booking was easy and hassle free. The staff always has an answer for your questions, always. I love how there is an aerial picture of... More

We are so glad you enjoyed everything about your stay! Maybe you CAN stay longer next time. We try to offer the best and we know that places directly on the beach are so hard to find. The owners here are family oriented and will continue to offer a friendly family park for you to enjoy for a long time... More

Camp Gulf was a great way to spend a week with the family. The staff was helpful and the grounds well maintained. We stayed in one of the beachfront spaces and literally walked of our camper door onto the beautiful white sand. The water was about 200 feet away from our door. I would recommend this campground!!

We recently returned from Camp Gulf and it was a wonderful experience! We found the staff to be extraordinarily friendly and helpful and the overall condition of the property to be very good.

Thank you for taking the time to make such lengthy comments. Glad you enjoyed our beach front sites. They are too close to the water to have sewer pipes in the ground. As you can imaging during a a high surge hurricane they would be underwater. We can pump you out everyday if you wish. I assume by your comment... More

My family of 5 stayed in our travel trailer @ Camp Gulf July 2014 on beachfront site 800. Let me start by saying we had a wonderful time overall. The camping on the beach experience is something we will never forget. If you don't want sand in your camper, don't stay on the beach because it get's everywhere!! {It didn't... More

Wow! Thanks for such a great review! Glad your family "had the time of your lives". You had the most popularly requested site on the Front row. It is next to the highly trafficked Beach Access walkway. I need to mention that it is Not a 'Public Beach Access', but rather an access for the campers that are here in... More

We have come to this place for 15 years, used to love the place. The location is great and beautiful beaches. My issue with it is the rules are getting out of hand. Rented a golf cart for our stay, first evening coming back from the beach one of the employees tells us we are not allowed to use the... More

If you have come consistently for 15 years you know that only one rule has changed in the last 4 years; that is no wheeled recreational type vehicles are to be driven after it gets completely dark. We do let folks return from vents they were at before it got dark, but not to 'cruise' around late into the night.... More

My family just completed a week long beach vacation here. I selected this location after much research, based on proximity to the beach and other visitors reviews.

This was our second year that my family and I have stayed at Camp Gulf. Both times we have had a great time. You can bet the location and having beach access while camping. We are going again next year. Need I say any more.
