The Lodge at Gulf State Park
The Lodge at Gulf State Park, A Hilton Hotel is located on the sugar white sand beaches and emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico inside the naturally beautiful Gulf State Park. Established in 1974, the original Lodge was a premier tourism destination for 30 years before being irreparably damaged in 2004 by Hurricane Ivan. The new Lodge re-emerged on November 1, 2018 as a model of environmentally-friendly coastal development where connectivity to the outdoors is a central focus. The Lodge features 350 non-smoking rooms, 4 restaurants and over 40,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor meeting space.
An active lifestyle, access to nature and environmental restoration all play a large part in the character of The Lodge experience. As you walk the grounds, you will notice that certain areas invite you to pause and linger. Outdoor terraces provide places to sit, relax, and enjoy morning sunrises or sunsets by the fire-pit. Multiple boardwalks provide direct access to the beach for a morning walk, a day of sunbathing, or an evening stroll.
The surrounding Park offers access to nearly 28 miles of educational hiking and biking trails, Segway tours, a nature center, outdoor classrooms, kayaking, guided nature walks and more. Its beachfront location also provides easy access to a host of water activities.
This unique destination stands out from other Gulf Coast destinations because of its size, the diversity of its preserved ecosystems and commitment to sustainability. There is simply nowhere else like it on the Gulf Coast.
