4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

Cool place to watch all the fishing going on and the beach! There is a small fee but it is worth it. Good place for kids.

“Beach Trip 2013”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

The Girl Scout decided to camp at the Gulf State Park. This park is great to relax and the fishing. My girls enjoyed walking around seeing the different fish and crabs the fisherman were bring in on the boats. My children enjoyed the afternoon at the pier.

“Fun for children and adults!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

We took our children (13, 9, 7, & 4) to the pier in the late afternoon. We were able to get permit and bait on site. Because they have never fished much, I thought that my children wouldn't have much luck...I was wrong. Nearly every time they dropped a hook on the water, they caught something. Many of the fish were small, but nonetheless it was exciting. Other fishermen on the pier were happy to talk and answer questions that we had.
In the three hours we were thee, we saw three sharks and one ramora eel caught and released.
It was a lot of excitement for our entire family, and the kids are already talking about going back again.

“new but pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

new pier, wide with bathrooms half way also. Having to buy saltwater license and $8 day is a bit high. Lots of catches, just not by me. Friendly strangers.
