Gulf State Park: A Nature Getaway in your Backyard

Posted July 31, 2013


Do you ever wish you could just leave the city for a hot minute, go into nature, and then be back home for dinner and sleeping in your comfy bed? Well, did you know about Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores?

Gulf State Park is a 6,150-acre state park in Gulf Shores, Alabama. It has two miles of white sand beaches, an interactive Nature Center, new tennis courts, a beach pavilion, golf course, 900-acre fishing lake, picnic area, paved trails all the way to Orange Beach, and the Gulf of Mexico’s largest fishing pier. All in Gulf Shores? Crazy, right!

Gulf State Park is perfect for short day trips to do nature exploring with your kids, get some exercise, and walk your leashed dogs. But this state park also has a luxury campground and cabins for pampered camping excursions.

Now being in nature is a wonderful thing. But here on the Gulf Coast, being outside can be synonymous with being eaten by mosquitoes. So, while you explore Gulf State Park, use some NoNatz and NoMosquitoz insect repellant. These natural bug sprays will keep you focused on enjoying nature and not hating some of the pests who live there. And since the products are organic, you’re not harming the environment (or yourself) with irritants found in other insect repellants.

Happy trails, and hope you enjoy all that Gulf State Park has to offer!
