Sam the pelican came to Gulf State Park Pier in the Summer of 2010. Sam earned a reputation for stealing bait and scraps from fishermen on the pier, but no one seemed to mind much because he was so friendly. That winter his pod flew south, but Sam stayed at the pier and has been with us ever since. Sam has thrived at Gulf State Park, befriending tourists, fishermen and locals alike, He has posed for thousands of pictures and is regarded by many to be the pier's unofficial mascot. Sam emobodies the casuel Southern charm that the Alabama Gulf Coast is famous for. In that spirit we invite you to join us for a meal at Sam's Roost. Let our staff provide you with Souther hospitality, delicious food and a great place to roost.
