Gulf State Park Campground, Gulf Shores, Alabama


Gulf State Park, AL

Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores, Alabama was our Memorial Day 2008 celebration camping destination.  The campground has almost 500 campsites with full hook-ups and beautiful concrete pads.  This campground was totally destroyed during Hurricane Ivan in September of 2004 that swept through the Orange Beach and Gulf Shores area.  The campground was “full” over the Memorial holiday.  The temps were in the low to mid 90’s and all campsites were in the direct sunlight because Ivan destroyed all of the trees.  The camp store was destroyed and has not yet been built back.  Still the campground is well-kept with brand new bathhouses. 

We attended Sunday worship services at the activities center at 10:30 AM.  The services were conducted by the North American Mission Board Resort Missionaries.  We really enjoyed the worship experience.

Gulf State Park Campground contains Lake Shelby and Middle Lake.  The campground is along the Gulf of Mexico.  Cell phone and television coverage was perfect.  GreatOutdoorBlessings star rating out of 5 ***** is a  5*****
