Come reserve your spot at our new Outpost Campsites in the Gulf State Park at Cotton Bayou Trailhead- please note that these sites are NOT on the beach.
This spot is ideal for those who love to primitive camp. Each of the 3 tents is already set up for you and has 4 cots. There is a port a potty on site but no indoor plumbing bathroom. The Outpost has a sink that can be used to wash dishes and provide water. We feel that the water is clean, but cannot guarantee it is drinkable water. This is a primitive camping area, and is located 1.5 miles on the trail, not the beach- no electric and you have to walk in. The closest bathroom is 3/10 mile on Rosemary Dunes and Catman intersection. The closest bathhouse is 1.8 miles inside Campground. Law enforcement will be coming by the area several times a day and in the evening.
Each tent is $50 plus tax per night. Reservations can be made no more than 1 year prior to arrival. There is a 2 night minimum stay on all bookings during festivals, holidays, special events and all weekends. The maximum length of stay per site is 7 nights.
Gulf State Park is home to many types of wildlife including alligators. Please be aware at all times. Please see Alligators in Gulf State Park
