Gulf State Park Reservations

RENOVATION NOTICE: Bathhouses 1, 2, 5, 6, 9, and 11 will be closed starting on July 1st, 2020 for a complete renovation of the facilities. The pool will close on September 15 for 2-3 weeks to be re-plastered.



Campers, thank you for your patience as we work to provide updates to you about existing reservations and scheduled reopening after damage from Hurricane Sally. If you have reservations scheduled to DEPART on or before November 1, your reservation will be automatically cancelled. We are working to process these refunds quickly, but please allow 7-14 business days. If you have urgent questions about your refund, please email, and we will respond as soon as we are able. If you have a reservation scheduled to depart after November 1, another update will be provided about your reservation by Tuesday evening (10/20). We understand the importance of reservation updates and want to make sure we provide as much information to you as soon as possible. We apologize for any delay you may have experienced and thank you for your understanding. Our utmost priority is ensuring you have a safe and enjoyable experience at Gulf State Park.




Another important update is about the call date for making monthly reservations for November 2021 - March 2022. The originally scheduled call date of November 1, 2020 has been postponed until December 1, 2020. More information about the process for making next year’s monthly winter reservations will follow, but please note that no monthly reservations will be made over the phone or in person on November 1 as originally scheduled. This change is to help us best serve all campers as we work to reopen the campground. Staff have been diligently working to ensure the campground can reopen as soon as possible, and we feel we can best serve you by making this change to the call date.


We are excited to announce that the new online camping reservation system is now live. Feel free to make your reservations by using the new online tool, calling the park office or simply walking in. We encourage advance reservations. Please keep in mind this online reservation system is new. If you experience any issues we would appreciate your feedback. Thank you for choosing the Alabama State Parks.
