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

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. I appreciate honest reviews from others since I myself take them into consideration when choosing a spot for my own family. That being said: Pros: 1. Staff was VERY friendly and helpful from... More

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.

Our neighbors on each side had probably 12 people in each camper, so needless to say we had no place to even park our cars. They were very loud past 10 which is the "quiet time". The restrooms didn't even have toilet seats on the toilets. We were told we wouldn't be in the sand and of course we were.... More

It would be nice if I had your name and knew where you stayed, or if perhaps you would have expressed to us that you were unhappy while you were here! For future reference any stay anywhere, that is the way to resolve issues to to make management aware at the time you have questions. We do enforce the rules... More

We stayed on a beachfront side directly on the Ocean. Predictably, the sites are extremely tight especially if both you and your neighbors have slides. However, this does not really matter since you set up your gear/chairs, grills directly in front of your rig on the beach. We had forgotten our shade awning, but a trip to the local Walmart... More

Thank you for your response and comment! Yes, the beachfront sites are beautiful and are one of the best places to park. They are the tightest, though over 60' in length and includes lots of space in front of your unit that others don't get; along with the direct view of the Gulf! The other sites in the park all...

Fantastic! So glad you enjoyed your summer vacation at CAMP GULF! There is just one beach cabin that is 'right at the water' - The Beach House, though the others are a short walk. Happy Camping and come see us again! More

This is a great RV park! We stayed at Camp Gulf from June 1-5th in spot 600. When we arrived, we taken directly to our spot by Dave. He even helped my husband unhook our tow vehicle!
