We stayed here over spring break with a group of family and friends. We have a class A motorhome. The sites are very large with an Asphalt parking strip and large picnic area. If you want to have a fire you must have an elevated fire pit 6" off the ground. If possible get a site off the main drag....

We stayed for a week at Gulf State Park in our camper. It has a large campground but did not feel crowded. The bike trails were great and there were plenty of them. The beach was nice also. The only thing that I did not like was that there were no campfire rings at the campsites. We will definitely be...

Stayed here over spring break. Full-hook up sites for a great price. Super clean bathrooms and laundry room. The workers were constantly buzzing around the park doing maintenance and upkeep. Campers get a free parking pass to the beach pavilion parking area that is a mile or so away. Great amenities for the kids: pool, basketball court, tennis, nature center,...

We stayed at this state park in their campground for two nights in our motorhome. Easy check-in and spacious sites. There is a very nice pool with splash pad area. Lots of trails and activities for kids. We would definitely stay here again.

This is the most beautiful state park we've seen (and we've seen them all over the country). To say staff was disorganized is so far from the truth. We arrived April 1 which is the busiest time; RV's were lined up 6 deep - we were checked in & at our campsite within 10 minutes - record time!!! Staff was...

Loved the bathrooms and showers, best I've seen. The check in was a process, took about 30-45 minutes with campers backed up. The grounds are being cultivated, I expect they'll be better as time goes by. Scrubby beach plants, so you are definitely going more for the location to the beach than the view. There are lake side pads but...

We stayed in the campground for seven days in March. I could not believe how big the rv sites were! The trails are amazing and they are continuing to add more. I couldn't get to all of them in our days there. Beautifully done trails with boardwalks over the marshes so that you feel you are in the wilderness but...

If you come here, you will be spoiled for camping anywhere else. Spots are large and very level. Bathrooms are always kept pristine. We spend our time riding bicycles and doing the trails. Perfect for families. In the cooler times, it gets pretty windy on the water front. Spots in 200's a lot of kids and noises because it is...

Went with in-laws to Gulf Shores in their motor home for a week. Stayed at this campground and let me tell you, this campground was clean. Bath houses were cleaned at least 3 times a day. So many miles of hiking and biking trails for you to use. Will come back again. Lot of different wildlife to see.

This is a great park with many amenities. We camped in a 35 ft 5th wheel in late February. The weather was in the 70's and our site was level and large. There is some foliage between sites, but unfortunately the campground is not heavily wooded, nor are the sites very private. On the other hand, there is more than...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Approximately 1.5 miles from the white sands of the gulf beaches, Gulf State Park offers a 496-site improved campground including 11 modern bathhouses, pull-thru sites, back-in sites, water front campsites, and ADA accessible sites. Tents are also welcome in our campground. Great for spending time with family and friends, all camping pads are paved and big enough for large RVs with pullouts. All sites have water, sewer and electricity (20, 30, and 50 amp), a picnic table, and pedestal grill. There are laundry facilities and recycling bins located beside the Campstore to accommodate our guests. There are two playgrounds located in the campground. Gulf State Park offers very limited WiFi service and cannot guarantee service. New to Gulf State Park are 11 brand new primitive camping sites that include stone campfire rings, grill tops, and picnic tables. These new sites are nestled among the trees and on the creek, and include access to the bathhouses, playgrounds, and laundry facilities. ... more   less
