absolutely beautiful place. if you have a national park pass it's free to enter and camping is priced right. 10/10 recommend

Camped in B loop. Like others have mentioned, this is a popular campsite, and it's mostly full. Not a lot of privacy, but I found it to be quiet at night with respectful neighbors. Not a ton of light pollution, no loud music. Just the sounds of the surf.

I was a bit confused with all the costs. In short, a tent campsite in B or D loop costs around $26. You need to purchase a park pass for Gulf Shores as well; $25 for a car, good for a week.

Beautiful campground in the National Gulf. Seashore Park. Great hikes to Batteries, with views of water. A must if you like history or forts. This location is close to beach and bay (but dogs are not allowed on beaches). But there are 2 dog small beaches in Pensacola Beach. Loop B is primitive, no electric and sites are $26 or $13 with a pass. The night stargazing is incredible and the dunes are like a winter paradise, resembling magical, snow drifts. The sunset skies are a gorgeous orange and the color lasts for an hour. In loop B and D, there are hot trickle showers, super low pressure. If you are in B or D loop, it is a short walk to E loop (big rig loop) where the showers are real hot showers, spraying, and they have a paid laundromat in loop A.

Spectacular place. I was worried about coming here after reading some of the comments. The drive in from Pensacola Beach was as if you were on another planet. There is nothing but flat beautiful beaches and tons of sand. I loved everything about the campsites and no they are not too close together. The campsites were super quiet. The only complaint I have is - why do campers have outside lights on? You can’t see the stars. Rude!!

I came upon this National Seashore Park by trying to find a secluded quite place to camp for a few days. I have been to many beaches in the United States , however, I must say, This is one of the most beaches beaches I have ever been to in the U.S.

This is a national park so if you have the pass you only have to pay camping, but if you do not you have to pay park entry as well as camping. Both fees are 26. It is insanely beautiful at the end of white sand beaches. It is an old military fort, there is a long walk through the historic area as well as a blue heron roostery! The campsite is great with clean bathrooms, warm showers, no hookup.

Nice campground. Spaces are pretty tight next to each other but the area is pretty with an amazing beach. There’s not really any boondocking in these parts so it is what it is. Close to a military base so lots of gun shots and fighter jets

Pretty wide open campground with a few trees, mostly along the perimeter. Many open sites (just before Christmas). Parked our Class B in a D Loop site w/o electricity for $13 (NP senior pass). Short walk to white sandy beach. Several woodsy trails.

a very nice Park, lot of trees, white sand beaches.

With the National Park and Recreational Pass (20$ for one year, good across USA) you save half of the price, 20$for one night instead of 40$. and the intrance in the park is free.

we save 140$ for 6 nights, a must have this pass.
