Gulf Shores in April

Wife and I are looking forward to a month in Gulf Shores starting May 8. We'll be a 35' Tiffin with a toad. We would appreciate any and all comments on the following campgrounds. We've checked reviews on couple of sites, but would still appreciate comments. We're not looking for a large CG with tons of activities. We want to fish, bird watch, and eat some good seafood.

Would appreciate comments on:
Fort Morgan RV Park
Doc's RV Park
Island Retreat RV Park.

Also, any recommendations for some fishing charters would be appreciated.
Thanks for all your help.

Fort pickins is my choice. c.o.e. half price for old farts. Free fishing pier, no license needed. Nice beach.

Agree with the Ft. Pickens choice. Be advised it does not have full service campsites, no sewer connections. If you are over 62 get the Golden age pass ports and it will be about $12/day which is a value considering the location.

We spend the winter at Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores. The sites are large with full hookup (50 Amp).

Gulf Shores State Park is one of our favorite parks. As mentioned, large sites, full service, miles of paved bike trails and a 1540 foot pier to fish from.

Gulf Shores is great but will likely be at capacity until the snowbird's migrate. Two years ago, we did manage to get in by mid-April.

Many good places here! Gulf Shores State park is great. Also a lot of higher end places if that interests you. Try Lake Osprey and Bella Terra.

The State Park is on beach,but campground is about 1/3 to 1/2 mile from beach. The State Park has about 16,000 acres. Google earth park and you can see campground and beach.

Many ride their bikes to the beach or even walk although there is parking, too.

One of our favorites if you are looking for something laid back and high end. Great staff and pretty much close to everything.

+? for Gulf State Park. Might be kinda iffy in April, though. On the "high end," there's owner-rented Heritage Motorhome Park & Marina.

Either way... take your boat!
