  • The park is clean and well kept. Plenty of activites to do in the park and the surrounding area. Staff are nice and welcoming. For everything that is recieved in your visit, the price is excellent.
  • Went for a walk down beach to the pier, after paying the admission to walk on pier (I thought our tax money paid for things like this), enjoyed the walk out to the end of it to watch the birds. Some of the pier is in need of minor repair, but most was in reply good shape. Other than the numerous people fishing, it was rather enjoyable.
  • Great to have such a long stretch of undeveloped beach. Not crowded, the only downside was some construction noise. I understand that they are building a Lodge, I hope that doesn't mean larger crowds. Close enough to the developed section to walk from the pier to an ocean front restaurant.
  • This park was very nice! The camp ground had full hookup and flat pads. The pool was closed and empty but the ocean was great. Make sure you eat at Lambert's! All ages will love it! Be ready to catch food though.
  • We have stayed at Gulf State Park twice now and it is great! The campground has a huge pool and splash pad and is just across the road from the beach. There is a large Pavillion at the beach with bathrooms and showers which is very convenient. The camp sites are all very nice and level and the bath houses are very nice and clean. One of the best things about staying this time is being able to go out of the Gulf State Pier for free. I highly recommend staying at Gulf State Park.
