We just returned from our first visit at Camp Gulf and had a great time! We have 2 young girls, 4 and 8, and this was the perfect mix of fun for them. We stayed in site 603 which was probably one of the larger sites on the property, right by the hippo slide, close to the activity center, close to the bath house and close to the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed all the free activities during the day for the girls...painting sand dollars, decorating t-shirts and totes, creatures with curler beads and much more. The beach is beautiful and easily accessible. The property is also extremely clean, the pools are spotless, bathrooms are very nice, even the laundry facility was really nice! However, be aware, campers are packed in like sardines, so if you are looking for a big roomy site, you may want to go somewhere else (especially on the beach side of the property)
There is one MAJOR complaint that I have and this is why I only rated it 4 starts, the WIFI is HORRIBLE! Seriously! It was so aggravating! My husband was supposed to attend an online meeting during our stay and couldn't get connected on any of our devices (we had 2 laptops, 4 tablets and 2 smart phones). I also had to cancel an online meeting. We are both IT professionals and when I called for help, I was told that no one else was having issues and it was probably my operating system....REALLY! It is clearly obvious that they need some serious help in this area. I was also told that I could purchase more band width. Are you kidding me? With the price we are paying, WIFI service and bandwidth should be maxed out and EXCELLENT. I have never had this type of trouble in any other campground. Even in the activity center it was impossible to keep a connection on our tablets, laptops or smart phones, and yes, i was typing in the correct password. But anyway, that was truly the only negative issue.
With that being said, I would definitely recommend this camping experience and we will more than likely plan on returning next year (we will just leave our business meetings out of the mix!). Thank you Camp Gulf for a very fun vacation!!!
