Gulf State Park Fishing Pier, Gulf Shores

(4.5/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Gulf State Park Fishing Pier attracts avid anglers, as well as tourists interested in seeing marine life. Opened in 2009 to replace the original pier destroyed by Hurricane Ivan in 2004, the newly rebuilt pier features indoor seating and a retail shop for stocking up on bait and tackle. At 470 m (1,540 ft) long, the pier is the largest on the Gulf of Mexico, offering you more space to fish and look for sea life down below. Watch sharks, stingrays, and jellyfish swimming underneath you and keep an eye out for pelicans and cranes flying nearby.

  • We had free admission to the pier with our camping fee. The trip was worth the walk. Neat to watch people fishing from the pier. Stop and read the informational signs - worth your time.  more »

  • Did not know we had to pay just to walk on the pier. $3 a person even late in the evening. Low enough price no to complain about it much. Outside the gate they sell typical concessions. Beyond the gate there are vending machines for sodas. Excellent fishing spot. Lots of benches to sit on and stations to clean fish.
  • I love pokemon hunting on this peir. There are 5 pokestops and a gym. It's amazing. You can also fish off this peir but I dont recommend it if you watched finding door recently.
  • Wonderful Adventure! Plenty of benches along the Pier, Amazing views! Beautiful @ Sunset ! Food stands, restrooms,and white sand BeAcH on the Gulf Mexico. Bring your camera.
  • It's only a couple of bucks and has a beautiful view. Everytime I've been I've enjoyed seeing what everyone on the pier catches.
  • Definitely a must see! So much wildlife and great views! Also only a couple of bucks, which is great if you are on a budget!
