A very nice park. They obviously spent time ensuring that sites were perfectly level. We have found many staffs to be friendly and cooperative, but this was one of the best. Campground is very convenient to the main highway to both Albuquerque and Santa Fe, but there was no highway noise.

Date of Stay:

Campground is large with little to no attractive landscaping. Sites all tend to run together, with no brush or trees to create some sense of privacy. Being a "gulf" campground, one would expect some sand or at least an imitation of a beach. What one gets is grass sloping down into a small, unspectacular lake. Park seemed quite busy and has gotten good reviews on this website. Just not our cup-of-tea.

If you like a natural setting, you should love this park. Lots of trees, live oaks, spanish moss, and large private sites - all pull-throughs. The park has a variety of easy hiking trails, a large pool, a small but interesting museum, and an attractive, sizeable picnic area. The one and only drawback is the no-see-ums. You will definitely need DEET and need to spray.

Very nice park. Short walk to beach. Many hiking trails through Audubon sanctuary. Easy walk or bike ride to nearby attractions - Ft. Gaines and Estuarium, a small but very interesting "aquarium" focusing on the flora and fauna of the estuary. Ferry to Gulf Shores just outside campground entrance.

This is one of the better KOAs. Very attractive with lots of trees and a pretty lake. Lots for kids to do. There are nice play areas, paddle boats, a game room and 2 pools. Office is well-stocked with RV supplies and basic groceries. What I liked best is they are very tourist oriented. They have three self-drive tapes available for no charge, which cover most of the places to see in the surrounding area. These were made especially for the campground, so the driving tours all start at the KOA.
