  • Take the Segway tour! Dave is fantastic! Informative and funny. Learned to ride and learned about the flora, fauna and history. So glad we did it.

  • Heard this was a great place to camp, it was beyond what was expected. We had full hookups. We will be back. Our campsite was #14 and was perfect. Lots of trails and paths for bikes, walking and golf carts. The campgrounds are close to the beach and everything else that GULF Shores has to offer. Well worth the time we spent there. We had heard about the alligator sightings but we never came across one. Our 1st evening and we had a flyover by the Blue Angels...awesome!
  • We think this is a great State Park, big spacious lots, we were in 255 which was a lake view very nice. The staff in the office were all very nice and make the check-in a very easy process. We loved the bike share, the miles and miles of trails are great and easy to ride on. With your park pass you can park and get on the pier for free, just take a picture of your pass to show the attendant. There is a path also that goes over the road and onto the beach which is nice. The bathhouses were really nice and the showers were good, we did notice a few of them around the park were closed due to repairs. In bathhouse 9 it wasn't cleaned on the men's side for a few days, I would think they would be cleaned daily. Another suggestion is have one of the bike share locations inside the park so you don't have to drive to get to the bikes. If in the area again we would for sure visit this park again. We visited Ft. Morgan , if in the area this is so worth the short drive to get there. Thank you PJV
