Stayed there last February and agree whole completely. If you have a large rig, you will need to find a sight that's large enough and watch overhead limbs. Lots of history and sights to see in Pensacola. We also like the state park in Gulf Shores. Sorry about your loss!

1st, sorry for your loss.

2ndly, you better decide real soon and make a reservation because the snowbirds are flying in real soon and you won't be able to find a spot anywhere.

And don't expect this to be off season(prices). This is the 2nd season for all the businesses down there.

We will be heading to Texas then home to AZ. we have never been to this area but need time to recoup from all the sadness.
Thank You
I am leaving for Gulf shores next week and will be staying at
sugar Sands RV Resort. It is highly recommended.. They are having a Thanksgiving Day Dinner which is a bring a dish to pass affair. Should be fun.

Gulf State Park is our recommendation. We have also stayed at Island Retreat, which was okay and traveled about and looked at the other parks. I was not impressed. For the site size, the sp is great.

Sorry to hear about your sons passing.......My wife and I stayed at Gulf Shores RV Resort this past spring and really liked it. It's about a 4 mile drive to the beach and is right off of hwy 59.

So very sorry for your loss. Hope your traveling is easy and relaxing. Another vote for Ft. Pickens if you can get a site in Loop A. Use your senior access pass and the sites are half price. Beach is an easy walk, very uncrowded and a quiet restful place. Be aware there are no restaurants or other commercial establishments close by. Just peace and quiet.

We've stayed twice at Coastal Haven-near Fairhope. About a 40 min drive to the busy Gulf Shores. I understand they fill up in winter.


Gulf Breeze Resort is a couple miles from Gulf Shores.


We tend to try to stay in the outlying areas and drive into the busy areas to shop or eat.

The State Park is nice, but Sugar Sands is exceptional. You can take the Foley Express off I-10 all the way without going through the small towns. It is our go to park when we are down.

Is this a yearly event with Thanks Giving? We use to go to Charleston SC but the camp ground there stopped having the Thanks Giving meal. Later RJD
