very nice campground. Great location! Walmart is about 10 minutes away, and so is the heart of Gulf shores. The beach is about a 5 minute car ride or if you have bikes you could ride there easily. Bath houses are very clean and conveniently located. Large pool was nice when you are ready for a break from the beach.... More

Gulf State Park was the first campground we stayed at as we transitioned into fulltime camping life. The park is located very close to white sandy beaches. The spots where close together, but not packed like sardines. They offer a variety of options, many with premium prices. Our stay was during the off season and we received a discounted rate....

We have always stayed in a condo, hotel/motel when we visit Gulf Shores. This time we chose to stay in a cabin at the State Park. It was absolutely awesome. It is very quiet and peaceful. The price was very reasonable especially including the annuities that you get in the State Park. We also had a pet friendly cabin. Plus... More

This was our first time camping and it was wonderful! The other campers were sooo friendly and helpful. The bath houses are large and ultra clean. The sites are well maintained and there are plenty of things to do. The beach is beautiful and there bathrooms and showers right on the beach so you don't have to drag the sand... More

A huge full service facility that is well maintained. Great for adults and kids alike. Great access to beach, concerts, restaurants and other activities. Spaces are large despite to huge size of this park. One night or a month it's well worth the trip. This one did not disappoint.

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
