General Information

Description - Seagulls and seashells, the surging surf and the sun-kissed sand welcome you to Gulf State Park. Ranging across 6,150 acres there are 2.5 miles of sugar white sand beach. The park has a spectacular resort/convention complex. It includes a modern beach front resort hotel with an outstanding restaurant, cocktail lounge and meeting/convention facilities for up to 600.

Recreation - Fish off an 825 foot pier, the longest on the Gulf, or in a 500 acre freshwater lake a stone's throw away. Meander along nature trails. View exciting live exhibits. Enjoy the hotel's tennis courts or attend a beach side summer Luau.

Spend your nights in a camper, a family size lakefront cabin, or a luxury hotel room facing the Gulf. Enjoy fresh seafood in our resort dining room. Bask all morning in the sun beside the Gulf of Mexico or knock a ball around an 18 hole championship golf course.

Report: The best thing about Gulf State Park Resort Hotel, was the location on the beautiful, clean, white sand beach. Dolphins swam past almost every morning. Turtles hatched while we were there. Also the pool was nice. The worst thing about the hotel was the housekeeping. They didn't even change the sheets from the last guest until we complained.

Report: It was pretty easy for us to find the park. My husband had been going to the park for years. He introduced me to it & now we go atleast once a year. I love the activities the park has. You can play tennis, ride your bikes & best of all, there are showers close to every campsite! So you don't have far to walk at night or any time. We will be coming back for years to come!!!
