Glamping Gulf Shores

Take Camping Up a Notch with a Glamping Experience on Alabama's Beaches

Glamping, or "glamorous camping”, is an outdoor trend that adds a touch of luxury to outdoor living. Try glamping this year in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach.

As one of the area’s most popular campgrounds, Gulf State Park offers multiple ways to camp in comfort. If you prefer a solid shelter, the main campground offers 496 RV sites with full hookups, paved pads, picnic tables, and a pedestal grill. Park amenities include 11 air-conditioned bathhouses, a laundry facility, and a camp store for all your outdoor essentials. 

If you want to glamp in a more traditional style, the Outpost Campsites at Gulf State Park are the perfect combination of primitive and posh. Your military-style tent stands tall on an elevated platform, boasting smooth wooden floors and four cozy cots to keep you dry and sand-free. Outpost guests enjoy exclusive access to bathrooms and a rustic shower on-site, as well as a nearby sink to keep your dishes (and hands) squeaky-clean.

Perhaps the most glamorous aspect of your Gulf State Park adventure is the location. No matter which method you choose, guests enjoy easy access to a park full of great amenities for all ages. You can hike the stunning nature trails, cool off in the park pool or splash pad, catch a game on one of the athletic courts, and more.

Sugar Sands RV Resort

True to the glamping tradition, this retro-themed RV resort transports you to a simpler time while keeping you immersed in modern convenience. The park boasts 82 sites for RVers, each with hookups for power, water/sewer, and even WiFi. The spacious pads are 22’ by 60’, providing plenty of space for extra comforts like outdoor chairs, firepits, tables, and more.

The architecture may be inspired by the mid 20th century, but the resort’s amenities are entirely modern. You won’t have to stray far to enjoy a resort-style pool, a kid’s playground and splash pad, a community fire pit, a fitness center, and more. There’s also a large rec center complete with a full kitchen and a bathhouse with private showers for your comfort.

Buena Vista Motor Coach Resort

This Orange Beach RV resort is the true definition of a “glamp-ground.” The expansive sites are available in tiered packages, from the standard (but spacious) pad-and-pedestal lots to upgraded sites that can include tiki huts, outdoor grills, private hot tubs, and even full 1- or 2-bedroom coach cottages. No matter which site you choose, large lawns and luxurious landscaping offer privacy and beautiful outdoor living. 

Of course, camping goes beyond the tent - and Buena Vista offers plenty of amenities to draw you away from your relaxing residence. The resort boasts a resort-style pool with a lazy river and waterslide, a heated indoor pool with a hot tub and fitness center, a designated dog park, and more. If you want to enjoy more traditional outdoor activities, cast a line in the park’s fully stocked five-acre lake or explore miles of stunning nature trails in the adjoining Gulf State Park.
