  • This state park is beautiful and located right in the heart of Orange Beach and Gulf Shores. The protected beach area was gorgeous and made for a beautiful place to watch the sunset over the lake.

  • Very nice and uncrowded beach. Soft sand and small waves make it great for kids. My daughter loved it. I prefer some surf, but that's on the other side of the Gulf in Texas. We can go there when.....  more

  • Gulf State Park is an absolute gem on the Alabama gulf coast. The park is well maintained and super clean! There are boardwalks and paved walkways throughout the park with plenty of room for walkers or bikers. In addition, there are hundreds of acres of undisturbed land providing many opportunities for viewing wild animals in their natural habitat. This is a great place for camping, hiking, picnicking, walking, jogging, biking or simply sitting! RV sites are spacious and well maintained.
  • Great camping spaces and support facilities. Park was laid out nicely, camp spots were a good size. Lakes, piers, picnic areas and trails were also nicely done. Camp store was stocked well with camping supplies and souvenirs. Fishing pier is a definite plus for this park. Swimming pool was good. Active military personnel and vets also get in free. A definite return to this camp ground will happen this fall.
