Not to change the subject but we go to Alabama several time a year for extended periods with our large dog. I get tired of having to step around the dog crap and having digs run at me. Glad you pick up and control your dog like we do but the rules are there because a lot of people do not.

Take care and visit Dolphine island it is nice and should meet what you are looking for. In the off season it is pretty open.

Have to agree about A LOT of people not cleaning up after their dogs. It ruins it for the responsible pet owners unfortunately. If I see someone walking away more than once without cleaning up, well... Let's just say the "Jersey" comes out & I hand them a bag along with a wise ass remark.

The very few places that are on the Gulf are about $100-$130 a night or $750 for the week in off season (after August 8th) in the panhandle area. Further south, there is no "off season". They can set their prices because they ARE right on the beach & as far as I know there's only 3 campgrounds on the entire Gulf Coast that can say that. If you find one though for under a $100 PLEASE let me know, I'll book 2 weeks in a heartbeat!!! The Gulf of Mexico & it's beaches are amazing & definitely worth the extra money.

Not really Alabama or Mississippi, but you might consider St George Island on the Florida panhandle. I've been going there for almost 30 years and it's a wonderful, non-commercial, old-Florida kind of place. Couple stores, couple bars, and miles of beautiful beaches. My idea of a crowded beach is another couple 50 yards away.

The RV park there is nice. I have not stayed there, but we've been through it. The only drawback is it's close to the state park beach where dogs are not allowed. HOWEVER if you go down the road just a little ways to the residential section, they are allowed and the beaches are just as nice and not crowded. And being the residential section, most folks pick up after their pets.

I have to say though, my grandmother lived on the Gulf Coast for 30 years & up until her death 7 years ago at age 95, went to & enjoyed going to the beach 2 or 3 times a week. I loved taking her to her favorite beach every time I visited & cherish those memories. If you have a problem with Senior Citizens, Florida should be the last place for you to vacation... Your comment about "allowing 80 year old people on the beach & not dogs" & then "80 year olds taking a dump" was not nice.

That is insulting in many ways my friend. Can you really give an account where you have observed this?

He can't because it's too expensive, his dogs aren't allowed on the beach & he has a problem with Senior Citizens.
