    We stayed at this state park in their campground for two nights in our motorhome. Easy check-in and spacious sites. There is a very nice pool with splash pad area. Lots of trails and activities for kids. We would definitely stay here again.

    I have reservations the first week of August at Gulf Shores State Campground. We have a site on Middle Lake and will be in a Travel Trailer and am concerned about it being too hot. Does anyone have any experience camping this time of the year there? We just spend the 4th in Dallas with feel like temps >100 and it was miserable in the camper.
