Gulf State Park's Nature Center is a living museum of plants and animals that are native to the Gulf Coast region.  It is our goal to inspire people to care for the environment by expanding their knowledge of the state’s natural resources through experiences that lead them to understand their connection to the natural world.


We offer many exciting and worthwhile programs.  Our weekly programs include guided nature walks, beach walks, pier walks, and a nature time. Through these educational programs, we offer a multitude of learning opportunities for children and adults about Alabama’s Gulf Coast. 


Weekly Activities Schedule- most are free and open to the public


There is an entrance fee of $2 per vehicle to enter the Campground. Lodging and campground guests are exempt from this fee.
