Welcome to Gulf State Campground

Located 1.5 miles from the white sand beaches, Gulf State Park Campground offers 496 improved full - hookup campsites with paved pads and with 11 primitive sites.  Tents are welcome on all sites. 

All full hookup camping pads are large enough for RVs with pullouts and have picnic tables, pedestal grill tops (no fire rings yet but you are welcome to bring your own that are above ground)

Campground features 11 modern air-conditioned bathhouses,  a campstore, laundry facilities, swimming pool with splash pad, tennis/pickle ball courts, horseshoes, volleyball, Nature Center and ongoing weekly activities.  Gulf State Park is home to the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail which has over 25 miles of paved, enhanced trails. Rent a bike from our campstore.

Because of its size, Gulf State Park has limited Wifi Service and is only guaranteed in our Activities Building and Refuge Golf Course Grill. Enhanced service is being installed and should be active soon.

Gulf State Park is home to may types of wildlife including alligators. Please be aware at all times. Please see: Alligators in Gulf State Park.
