Nice long pull-through, I could leave my trailer attached and still have lots of room. Spaces are wide and separated by tall, thin trees. Wi-Fi was adequate and free and the staff friendly. Nice place to get away and hang out at or as a base camp for sightseeing. They accept up to 5 days for the Passport America discount. Normal rate $38 a night, $19.76 a night with Passport America membership. This was favorite place to stay on my California to Florida cross country trip. I will absolutely stay here again if I'm in the area. We camped at Jellystone Park Gulf Shores (formerly Lazy Acres RV Park & Campground) in a Motorhome.

This is a decent park that could be a great destination park with a few improvements.

First the positives: wonderful, friendly staff; long pull-thrus; large beautiful campsites with pine trees; enough space for awnings; large variety of activities for kids during their season (spring - fall); all utilities worked well, including 50 amp service; good value with PA discount; park would be a really nice place to get away from the city and relax for a few days

The negatives: not close enough to Pensacola to really explore from here; a few small limbs are in the way on access roads (I'm sure they plan to take care of this prior to camping season); they need to take out a few trees at entrance and exit of campsites to allow easier big rig access; they need to evict a handful of what appear to be permanent tenants that really devalue the campground; sewer is near the front of the site (be sure to bring 20' of hose)

To really make things super, they need to create one section of 'big rig friendly' campsites with level concrete pads. I don't think most campground owners realize how important concrete is and how they can recoup their investment by charging a few bucks more for these sites.

These folks do appear to be making improvements on a daily basis. We look forward to returning to see the progress and participate in some of Yogi's activities. We camped at Jellystone Park Gulf Shores (formerly Lazy Acres RV Park & Campground) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

With a few improvements, this could be a destination park itself. The Alabama beaches are nearby. The park is farther from Pensacola than it looks on a map.

Our backin site was a bit difficult but once in the site fairly level and large combination of packed sand and grass. The pull through so looked nice, as long as you can position in the trees to have room for slides. Friendly workers and seasonal campers. Good place to stay to visit Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola. Rate was Passport America. We camped at Jellystone Park Gulf Shores (formerly Lazy Acres RV Park & Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Great family Park gravel roads and grass and gravel sites in the tall pines. Fire pit at each, park is almost empty. Office folks are just great and friendly. Bathhouse is spanking clean, laundry also. Lots of stuff for kids here including a pool and another water fixture plus playground.

We stayed here before and will stay again. Our rate is monthly. A few snowbirds. Fish in the pond. We camped at Jellystone Park Gulf Shores (formerly Lazy Acres RV Park & Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice campground. The pull thru sites are easy to get in and out of. The back in sites can be tricky for big rigs or triple axle trailers. The campground owners are always out and about and very friendly. Would recommend stopping in here. This is our second time here.

Rate reflects passport America discount. Excellent place, very friendly staff, great place to camp with the family. Nightly campfire with smores provided. Pool was clean and they had a new splash pad. Sites were well maintained and beautiful scenery everywhere with shaded trees. The internet was extremely fast. This place is a hidden gem!

Price reflects Passport America rate. We stayed one night on our way from Alabama to Florida Panhandle. Full 50 amp hookup gravel pull-through site. Sites are very long and spacious. Gravel roads. Lots of pine trees so satellite signal may be difficult. Free and fast Wi-Fi. Very friendly lady in office. Activities for children.

Passport America rate. This is our first trip to Alabama and we wanted to find a family friendly place that was central to everything we wanted to explore during our short stay here. This park is perfect for families with children and anyone else looking for a clean wholesome place to stay (read- no scary clientele). It's very "country" yet so close to the Florida Alabama beaches. We're also able to visit the USS Alabama in Mobile and the Pensacola Air Base in FL without having to drive all the way up from the beach. Look at this camp on a map and you will see it's in the perfect spot. We have been traveling extensively in our motorhome and really love to stay in camps run by a family. The folks that run this camp are so nice and work hard to make sure the grounds are groomed and that you are happy. The sites are all spacious with tall pines. Even though there are very few children in the camp other than our two (it's offseason) they still had hayrides and a campfire with smores. I was shocked none of the snowbirds joined us ;). Speaking of snowbirds, this is a great place for them too. The playground isn't smack in the middle of everyone's site. The activity areas are more around the outside of the grounds and we saw a number of big rig snowbirds tucked here and there and everything else on down to the couple tenting across from us. It's worth the stay. We camped at Jellystone Park Gulf Shores (formerly Lazy Acres RV Park & Campground) in a Motorhome.

The off-season means we were the only ones with kids in the park. Still, they got the wagon out for a ride and crafts for my two boys. Tall pine trees everywhere on all sites. Nicely spaced out so not too crowded. Very nice fishing lake. Nice playground and pool (pool not open in off-season). No cable but Wi-Fi was great! Most games in the gameroom were "Out of Order".

Love this campground. Our favorite out of a dozen stayed in this trip. Tall pines, lots of room at sites. Good Wi-Fi even in the back corner. Very quiet. A few longer stay guests but well kept and not noticeable. Easy access. Well laid out. Wonderful, caring staff who love what they do. Gravel roads well packed, grassy sites are level and very generous size. Very pet friendly with loads of room for good walks and play. We will go back as it felt like home.

We stayed in a premium site along the 1.5 acre pond. The kids enjoyed swimming, fishing, Water Wars, crafts, etc... Each site had a good amount of shade. Because this Jellystone Park is new, they are adding fun things for kids and families each year. I am a southern girl so I know pine straw falls all year round. Very clean sites, restrooms, and clubhouse. Those residing month to month were gracious and I can't wait to return with my family next year. This is a great family campground.

With smaller children, we enjoy the Jellystone Parks. This one, however, was our least favorite. Smaller park, so the permanent campers/residents really stand out with their older living quarters. We only stayed one night as we were traveling to another destination, but first impressions would keep us from staying again.

Campground is now a Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park. It's a nice, comfortable place to stay. Stayed 5 nights, Passport America rate shown. Sites are level and very large, both in length and width. Heavily shaded by pine trees. Nice clean laundry. Excellent wifi (although we're close to the transmitter). Lots of permanent campers, but most are in decent condition. Great place to walk dogs. Convenient for visiting Pensacola and the Gulf Shores area, but there isn't much to do close by. We would stay here again if we return to this area.

Very friendly staff and ownership; many children's activities and facilities include playground and pool. Facilities are very clean. Sites are very large and well shaded. Excellent community clubhouse and many activities. We are Passport America members and rate reflects that.

We too noticed that something was going on between the owners and a couple of the RVers. This CG is family owned, and they are in the middle of making it a Yogi park, so there was lots of painting, fixing and cleaning going on. There were not many people around this time of year, so they didn't have many activities listed, but , whenever they did, it was not run very well. There was one time that they were supposed to have a hot dog cookout at a certain time, and everyone was there on time, but the owners had changed there minds and decided to postpone because they had just eaten.They eventually lit up the grill when they saw all the hungry beedy eyes. Overall, this was a nice place and everyone was very friendly; the campers and the employee who worked in the office was awesome!!! The owners wife could have used some friendly training. Either she was under pressure with the repairs, or she just picked and chose who she wanted to socialize with. The campground was clean, except for many pine needles that were never picked up. The showers and bathrooms were very clean and kept up daily and the small rec room was kept clean and always open. It had full TV, kitchen with fridge and stove. So you could use all of their appliances and heat/AC and never use yours. They had bingo and movie night on occasion. Sometimes you wouldn't know until that day or a few hours prior. Aside from these minor flaws, we loved the roominess of each site and the quiet location. We would stay again.
