Rates: $35.00 per night, $491 for a month between Oct and Apr, $615 for a month between May and Sep. You’ll be charged an extra $3.00 per night for pull-thru sites. This is a Good Sam Park so those discounts apply.
Lots: The Park is medium in size, with just over 170 lots. Lots are what I consider normal size for an RV Park (not to tight but not overly roomy). There are only 16 pull through sites, the rest are back-ins.
Positives: The park itself is very pretty and the location near the Gulf of Mexico is excellent. There is a bicycle trail that goes from the front of the park to downtown Gulf Shores. They have a swimming pool and a nice playground for the kids.
Negatives: When we arrived in early March the site was full. I inquired about renting for a month and that would not be possible for a few months. So if you are a snow bird make your reservations early, if you are like Angela and me that look for a spot for a month, 2-3 weeks in advance, forget it.
