So Much to DoGulf State Park

Imagine yourself walking out of your cottage and being just minutes from the beach. Gulf State Park has over two miles of beautiful, sun-kissed sand for you to explore. This is the place to find yourself in nature where you can fish, hike, bike, and take it all in. But you'll also find theme parks, a zoo, arts and culture, shopping, and dining just a short drive away.

Gulf State Park is a hot spot for experiencing nature, pure and simple. Our beaches are the perfect place to soak up the southern Alabama sun away from the crowds.
