Campgrounds along the Gulf?

Afternoon All-

Anyone have any recommendations for campgrounds along the Gulf? We are headed to LA, MS, and AL in early August and would love to find a place on the water. Nothing we have found is jumping out at us.

Thanks so much-

Mike

Hi,


Take a look at Gulf State Park, near Gulf Shores. It's been our winter getaway in many years, and ought to be great any time.

Waveland, MS (near Bay St. Louis) Buccaneer State Park. 1 block to the beach, FHU. We stayed there in March. If you stay here, take a half-day to visit the John C. Stennis Space Center.

Gulf State Park, Orange Beach, AL. FHU, boardwalks connect campground to beach. We stayed there in March, too. Lots to do in the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area.

Here's a link to the blog we wrote about both places...

Enjoy!

You didn't mention Florida, but if you are heading that direction and want "beach", Henderson State Park at Destin and Topsail Hill State Preserve just east of Destin are both excellent, but getting into them might be a gamble. They tend to fill up and sell out pretty darn quickly.

We really enjoy Fort Pickens (Gulf Shore)- great history lesson to boot, tho this current storm is probably hammering it!

Whatever you choice you want to make reservations NOW because it will still be summer break for schools and campgrounds will be hard to get, for most FL state parks you are already to late, they get booked the first minute they are available which is 11 months in advance.

Two good parks

We just returned today from a trip that included the Gulf coast. Two excellent parks we enjoyed are the French Quarter RV Resort in New Orleans, about a six-block walk into the heart of the French Quarter, and the Gulf Beach RV Resort at Biloxi, MS, just across US 90 from a lovely white sand beach. Both are a bit pricey, but have excellent facilities, and considering the convenience, well worth it. They accept trailers as well as motorhomes.
