This is a great campground located in the middle of everything. The owners are super nice and the location is great. There is a bike path that you can go from one end of the island to the other on. Water, Electric, and sewer were fine and the private bathrooms with huge showers were very nice. They rent bikes and have air available to pump up bike tires. We will definitely return here. We camped at Pelican Nest RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Great restaurant next door, beach across the street. Store called "Ship to Shore" on the main road coming in has everything you need or want.

Don't let the pictures fool you. This "RV Park" has 12 sites crammed into less than 1 acre. Space between sites may not allow awnings. The hosts are friendly and the beach across the street is wonderful. But, in all honesty, this place should be your choice only if you have no other options. We camped at Pelican Nest RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

Very small mom pop park. Level and utilities including Wifi were okay. Beach is across the two lane city street (about 1,000' to water). Would stay here again. There is a restaurant next door that had live music on Friday night that was a little too loud. Depends what you like. Nice laid back small parking lot campground.

This is a different kind of camping experience, but one we prefer. The small campground is quiet and clean with no bells and whistles, but everything we needed. The older couple that owns the place are native to the island and have lots of interesting stories to share about its history and the affects of hurricanes, one being a positive as the beach is growing tremendously. The two bathroom/shower combinations were very clean. The laundry area is convenient. Level concrete pads. We were at the first site near the road which was easy to get into and convenient. Wi-Fi was good. Cable TV. Full hookups. All this was good. However, the big attraction is the beauty of the island and beach just across a street with little traffic. We loved the beach, almost like having a private island. Our 3 small dogs had a blast running and romping with only a few people at a distance. We stopped in for a night, but hung out longer. I can't figure the previous bad review. It is not a resort area, rather a place to relax away from the hustle bustle. We would definitely return.

When we arrived we were met by the male owner who was very rude to my wife by not even saying hi to her. When we got to the site I could not use all slides or the outside kitchen. The owner told me I would have to deal with it. We decided to leave and go to another RV park. Don't stay here. I even got charged for the night that we never stayed. We camped at Pelican Nest RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Not sure where that last review came from, but our arrival at this park was met by the owner coming outside to greet us, then actually stopping traffic on the road so we could pull out to access our site! This is a small campground with a nice pool and clean laundry room. The bathrooms are individual rooms with clean showers in each. It's just a short walk across the street to the pier and beach for excellent photo ops. We will be here for a week this time, but will definitely be back for a longer stay!

The pictures on the website are a bit deceiving. This park is a parking lot with RV hook-ups. The spots are tight. If you had your awning out, it possibly could touch the RV next to you. On the positive side; the managers were very nice and helpful. You can walk across the street to the beach; however, you do pay a fee. My suggestions for people visiting the island would be to try to get into the other campground first; however, this one does the job if you want to spend all your time on the beach.

Great place to stay, we were here for a month. The owners are wonderful people and are at the park almost daily. Park is quiet, neat, well kept, and quiet. We will stay there again next year. We camped at Pelican Nest RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a tiny, friendly park offering level, unshaded, grass sites and good utilities (including cable and great Wi-Fi). The area has AT&T phone and data service. Sites are very close together but several are pull throughs with access from the street behind the park. A bike path that runs the length of Dauphin Island is located across the street, as is public beach access. There is some minor traffic noise even in the off-season. The price is based on the weekly rate. We would stay here again. We camped at Pelican Nest RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Right across the street from a beautiful white sand public beach, very nice swimming pool on the property. The park is very small, looks like it used to be a small restaurant that was converted to an RV park. Our spot was a concrete slab that was perfectly label, the utilities worked fine. We were here after the season, there was no traffic noise and no crowds! The showers are in a private restroom with toilet, there are only two and are uni-sex. Shower was 100% the best I've seen in an RV park. I suspect if it had been during the season with only two it could have been a wait. This is a great and place and I'd love to stay here again!

The owners and other campers were friendly and helpful. The sites are tight and some were not level. Enjoyed the beach located across the street. I would camp here again. We camped at Pelican Nest RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Pelican's Nest is a work in progress. The owners are some of the nicest and most helpful folks I have ever met. This is a very small campground. We have a 39' 5th wheel and getting into the site was difficult. You have to enter through a back gate at each site and pull in for the pull-through sites. They are working on improving the campground since reopening after Katrina. The park is directly across the street from the public beach so it is very convenient. It is located on the main street that runs the length of the island. The owners had an ice cream social on the deck while we were there. The big downfall is the closeness of the sites. They have cement pads with picnic tables. The sites themselves are gravel but very level. FYI, bring whatever provisions you need because the price of food at the only grocery store on the island is astronomical! Fort Gaines is a must see and you can catch the ferry to Gulf Shores. Great birding also at the Audubon Park. We camped at Pelican Nest RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
