Tent Camping at Gulf Shores State Park

There are almost 500 campsites at Gulf Shores, but they all appear to be for RVs. Are there any sites in this state park that are more appropriate for tents? A little more secluded, perhaps? Nothing against RVs, but the generators, etc make a lot of noise when you're just in a little tent!

When are you thinking about camping? I've seen plenty of tents there, but mostly in the fall when it's cooler.

I looked into tent camping there with the kids last year and the prices were steep IMO. There is a tent loop with gravel and grass pads. The best sites are 16 to 39 and 229 to 232. Both are located along Middle Lake. Improvements are very good at Gulf State Park. Nearly every amenity is available. Sites are close together but there is still a bit of privacy. RV's are the dominant choice here so you may find the tent sites to be exactly what you are looking for.

November or December, so I guess it's likely to be cooler!
