I believe that's Memorial Day weekend so good luck. That weekend starts our busy season. That said, the State park is my personal favorite. http://www.alapark.com/GulfState/Camping/

You're about a mile or so from the beach plus they have a golf course and you're just a few miles from the Wal-Mart

Looking to tent camp in April. In looking at the Gulf State Park web site, it doesn't say "Yes" for primative camping. Does that mean they don't allow it and that all the spots are really for RVs and pull-behind campers?

Granted it's been years since I camped at the State Park, but last time I went you could tent camp. Call them and ask

TravelingSteveFamily - I thought this would be an easy answer, but I found conflicting information. The State parks list indicates no tent camping. http://www.alapark.com/Camping/ But the local tourism site mentions tent camping in the listing for Gulf State Park. Here is a full list of local camping options. You might want to call and confirm.
