Local who stayed here just to try it out and came away impressed. This RV park is located a short distance down Ft. Morgan Rd in Gulf Shores. Minutes away from Wal-Mart and other grocery stores and eateries. Staff was very helpful; and the Park was clean and well maintained. Lots of snowbirds here!

We stayed at Gulf Shores RV Park for a week. All sites are level, concrete and gravel lot with full hookups: sewer, water, 30/50 power, cable tv., picnic tables and firepit. The internet was fairly strong without a booster. Between it and our Verizon hotspot, we were able to work with few connectivity issues. The campground was very clean and cared for. We enjoyed the pool, used the pristine laundry room (3 pay washers and dryers) . There are two very clean restrooms with showers. There is a community room with full kitchen, firepit and horseshoes. I enjoyed getting fresh seafood at Aquila’s in Bon Secour. Make the trip and save some big bucks on Red Royal Shrimp! And the red snapper was also very good. If you have dogs, the park is dog friendly with a very small fenced area. There is also a long bike/walking path that runs down 59. There is a small park/boat slip at Little Lagoon across the street. Down the road to Ft. Morgan you can find sandy white beaches on the gulf side and sandy beaches on the bay side. Several places are good for doggie swims. Watch for gators in the ponds on the bay side. If you like to fish, they were jumping out of the water. Go catch some! For a more commercial visit, enjoy The Hangout for food music and fun. There are lots of restaurants around. We enjoyed Lambert’s Home of the Throwed rolls. There is a jazzy 50’s diner, portions are huge. We did NOT enjoy Paula Deen’s, which was basically cafeteria food served family style. Island Retreat RV Park is a great place to land in Gulf Shores!
