Welcome to Gulf State Park

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, new beach pavilion, rental cottages, tennis courts, camp sites, hiking trails, Zip Line, and a fishing pier that is 20-feet wide and extends 1,512 feet into the Gulf. This and much more make Gulf State Park the perfect in-state vacation or out-of-state adventure.


Beginning Monday April 18th 2016 at 6am, a portion of State Park Road 2 that run roughly 1.5 miles through Gulf State Park will be converted to a vehicle free path for pedestrians, cyclists and the future park tram.  During the conversion, traffic will be rerouted at each end of the road and all traffic must use Hwy 135 as access to Beach Road.  State Park Road 2 will only be accessible for Park Cabin and Golf Course guests.  Signage is placed throughout the area and the portion of the road that is closed will be re-striped within a few weeks allowing all park visitors to enjoy a safer access to the park’s various facilities and amenities.  Vehicle free trails in this portion of the park will enrich the visitor experience, create multiple loops, increase access for visitors with differing abilities and will improve the health of the park’s central wetlands and animal habitat.  A new and safe trail from the campground to the middle beach dune crossing will also be added.

Activities - Recreational opportunities abound at Gulf State Park.
