The 10 Best Places To Camp In Alabama
Backcountry Trail Foundation
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better or more beautiful beachside campground than the one at Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores, Alabama. For a truly special experience, book an Outpost Campsite on the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail. You’ll have your own military style tent complete with cots, a private firepit, and shared bathrooms. The best part is you’ll be mere minutes from the park’s two miles of white-sand beaches and sparkling blue-green waves. And should you get tired of the salt life, you can also spend time paddling Lake Shelby or exploring the 27 miles of paved trails and boardwalks passing through nine distinct ecosystems in the park.
