Gulf coast in april 2014

Hey friends. I am looking for a campground/rv resort along the gulf coast for spring 2014. I figure I better get on it!

Likely will stay a week, but our biggest criteria is space. We prefer a site in a wooded, state park type setting, with some trees/shrubs between you and your neighbor. We have a toad so a more remote park will still work if within driving distance of something fun! any favorites out there? Will continue my research based on your suggestions!

thanks

We are thinking Alabama or the pan handle. But the others rant off the table.

Pensacola, FL area is nice. We have a vacation home there, and always look forward to the visit. Naval Aviation Museum is there, and the Blue Angels usually practice twice a week in the "Winter" months.



Lots of great beaches and a fine assortment of restaurants. The city is large enough to offer a decent variety of interesting activities, but small enough to not have larger city problems - like traffic.


Big lagoon State Park is a nice place to stay - Check out the reviews on RV Park Reviews.

In April, you will have the beaches mostly to yourself. Natives think that you freeze to death at anything below 80 degrees.

I think the OP asked about wooded sites. Those are RARE on the FL Gulf Coast I think.

most sites in topsail state park or wooded. Lots of tall trees, luckily they have cable otherwise it would be hard to get a signal unless you have portable satellite. Just a short walk to the beach or either use their shuttle service.

Other than state parks you should have no problems getting reservations for April. All the snowbirds are gone.

Topsail is wooded if you stay in the back loop. The front loop is pretty much open with little or no privacy between the campers.

We are in the Panhandle right now. Yesterday, we drove to Fort Pickens which is by Pensacola. There is a fairly nice campground there that is a COE park. It has only water and electric but there is a dump site. Shower house looked nice. It is more in your request for trees and some room. The beaches are beautiful too!
Top Sail State Park, Henderson and Grayton State Parks are also very nice. Get your reservation early!
We have stayed at Grayton. There are nice bike trails that you can ride for miles!
Enjoy your trip!
