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

Was driving through the area and spotted this, so worth a stop. Loved the boardwalk, can walk for miles and on a raised level. Loved the over the road walk way. The beach side gorgeous. Good parking and lots to keep you walking.

We attended a beach wedding which was nice, just surprised when they had scheduled 2 weddings for 6pm within 20 to 30 ft of each other. Also the physical address we were given puts you at the sign at orange beach.More

Unless there is an assigned wedding planner, the beach areas for weddings are first come first serve so the proximity between weddings cannot be controlled. As far as the address, with the construction at the park it is possible that a gps might not necessarily...More

The course was in terrible condition. The cart paths are so beat up, it's like constantly driving over speed bumps. The fairways are like hitting out of the first cut of rough with several holes throughout. Greens were pitiful, with several having very little grass...More

My son & I started here in August 2015. The bathrooms were clean. Only state park I've ever stayed in that had A/C in the bathroom. The park has a trail all around it thats great for hiking or riding. I'll definitely stay here again.

Our bathhouses are climate controlled year round, and you can see both wildlife and blooming flowers on our trails. We are glad you came and stayed with us and look forward to you making a return visit.
