We just got back from Dauphin Island Campground. We had a wonderful time there...our tent camp spot was at first going to be a middle spot that would have had quite a bit of morning/afternoon sun...however, the staff allowed us to change locations and we were in a quite shady spot...the spots are quite close together but we didn't find this too uncomfortable. The campground is dog friendly and campers cleaned up after their pets.
The bathroom/showers were quite adequate...they are older and could use an update, however, there was plenty of hot water and they were cleaned daily with bleach. There is also a laundry area...again the washers and dryers are older...however...this is camping and they do their jobs quite well.
The path to the beach was just beautiful...pines and palms leading to a boardwalk...several benches were along the way if you wanted to stop...there were quite a few cigarette butts...shame that people who smoke still think it is okay to just throw the ends of their cigarettes down for others to deal with...especially in such a gorgeous area...this was really our own disappointment.
The beach was BEAUTIFUL...so natural and relaxing...sugar white sand and not commercialized at all...and very dog friendly...there aren't any lifeguards on duty, however, the water at this area was quite calm and shallow so it made swimming and enjoying the water and beach very safe. There were times that we were the only ones there and it was like our own private beach getaway.
