"Camping near the beach"

My girls and I "camped" in our VW PopTop van at Gulf State Park for two nights last week while on spring break. The campground is quite large, but we managed to get a site near the pool and store, which was nice for us. Many of the sites don't have any shade, so be sure to bring some sort of awning. While there is supposed to be wi-fi, it didn't work ... we had to schlep to the activity center to take care of email, etc.

I had hoped that the campground and roads to the beach would be bike friendly, but I was disappointed. Cars drove fast through the campground. The street to the beach had no bike lane; the road along the beach did, but it was covered in water and there was no way to get across the road safely to ride with traffic on the way back from the beach pavilion.

We enjoyed the pool, but it closed at 5pm, meaning we spend $5 for an hour of swimming - the pool charges per person/per day. The store also closed very early.

Overall, we enjoyed our time there camping near the beach in a well-maintained, modern (mostly RVs) campground.
