Gulf State Park's two miles of beaches greet you with plenty of white sun-kissed sand, surging surf, seagulls and sea shells, but there is more than sand and surf to sink your toes into. Inside Gulf State Park there is a championship golf course...more

Very clean park with fishing pier. It's worth the 3 dollars per person to walk the pier. We saw sharks and stingrays. You can also swim here. Cute little outdoor restaurant with drinks on the pier.

We visited Gulf State Park for a portion of the day, and by no means did it justice. Located across from the Gulf, it offers walking and biking trails, a nature center, a fishing pier and even a golf course. My dogs enjoyed the dog...More

I agree with the previous respondents. The tent sites are nice and not too far from a bathhouse. They have their own parking
