Everything was exactly as described but this is really weird. No dogs on the beach but over the year, thousands and thousands of vehicles dripping oil, transmission fluid, antifreeze,brake fluid, differential fluid as well as throwing asbestos from the brake pads. Kind of an upper middle class hillbilly heaven.

I would give this place excellent but the spots are so tight I could almost touch my neighbor. With that said the view makes up for it and the staff was very helpful. We will stay here again for sure. We traveled in a 42 class a motor home. Take a broom to get the sand out

We say, "You can't get any closer than this". Yes, the view is unmatched. the front row does have narrower sites (we did remove several when slidesouts came along). We recommend a small shallow pale big enough for your feet with some water in it to minimize the sand coming in your door. Glad you found us and we look... More

We stayed here for the 1st time the week of Sept 15 2014 and this was a very pleasant experience. The biggest draw is the proximity of the beach. We stayed in the upper park sites and the walk to the beach is about 5 min. The park is narrow and very long, we were only 12 sites from the... More

So great to have a new loyal customer! Grass was a little tall, we plant winter rye then wait until it comes up to mow so it does not blow seed around. It is an overlap with summer grass still growing fast and rye not up yet. (wish the rye would germinate faster!) The wifi is a challenge in peak... More

This place met all of our needs and we loved the fact that the campground is on the beach. We stayed in a non beach site but it was only a short walk until our feet hit the sand. People were friendly, especially the ladies at the check in place at the store in the middle of the campground. Pool... More

Difficult to review because of the variety of types, sizes, convenience to park amenities, and price of sites and cabins. But here goes. Had 1 cabin and RV site 701 (2nd row from beach). Family of 9 with ages 2-67. Mix up on reservations (their fault, but Courtyard by Marriott came through). Beach RV site was on the sand. Get... More

Well, maybe it would be perfect if there was not any confusion about how the reservation was made. We do not use 'Courtyard by Marriott'. Perhaps that is the confusion. We have our own system and are not affiliated with CYMarriott in any way. Glad our staff was able to get you exactly what you were looking for! BTW, the... More

My family of 5 stayed at this RV park for 1 week. We loved everything about it! The sites are really nice. We had a beach front site and it was AMAZING!

We definitely recommend this place, it's very expensive, we paid $800.00 more or less for a week by the end of August. We had an excellent spot, shady, right next to the laundry/bath facility, all employees are very helpful, everything was decent and well kept. Spot 316!

The beach is great here, surrounded on both sides by 'private' beaches. I hate private beaches, I feel the beaches should all be public!! Oh well. Anyway, first time here, we loved it. Nice level spots with cement. Lots of sand, and be careful of the stickers! Remove your shoes when you enter your RV or you'll be bringing them... More

Thank you for the compliments! We are directly between 2 residential neighborhoods (with signs stating they are private beaches. It helps that there are not so many people around us. There is a legal battle ensuing that will determine how far down to the water who owns what. We are longing for clarification on this too. To clarify the 'Beach... More

Dear Camp Gulf; Our group consisted of 12 people ,4 dogs, and 4 campers. Our sites were great (212 through 215) and the campground was very good!

This was our second trip to Camp Gulf. Really enjoyed the beach. Campground is tight but not too bad considering where you are. The only complaint I have is that there were cigarette butts everywhere, even on the beach. Didn't seem like management cared about that or the fact that other people weren't cleaning u after there pets. We will... More

We are so glad you enjoyed the beach! Glad you will be back too! That's what we are here for. We do care very much about cigarette buts! Wish people would not smoke and if they do that they would not have the nasty habit of just throwing them anywhere. We are constantly picking them up, in fact every golf... More
