The pier was included in the price of our camp site. We went everyday. We loved watching the fishermen and women. The view is very nice. Highly recommend especially for sunset

We enjoyed watching the birds and watching people fishing. It is the longest pier on the Gulf Coast There is a nominal fee for using it, but it is free if you are camped in the RV Park.

The Gulf State Park Fishing Pier is an ideal place to take great photos, watch the waves roll in, and to take a stroll to the end. Do take enough cash with you, though. The first time we walked, we were ready to pay a...More

Nice pier for a walk or for fishing. I think it's like 1500 feet long! Beautiful water and beach views. Has food, a little store, restrooms, and covered picnic area. Veterans visit for FREE!

We saw some very big Sharks. People fishing were very nice, mostly tourists, only a few people knew what they were doing. Water is very beautiful and beach sand is very White. Just beautiful!!

Had some guests in town and encouraged them to walk to the pier, but they had a fee to walk out to the end. The call for cash ruined their beach foot tour.More

Even on a windy rainy colder day, it’s fun to see. Be sure to pencil in a quick visit. Looks like it would be fun on a sunny day since there is a bar!

Great access to fun fishing for the family. Conveniently located in Gulf Shores near the Lighthouse Condominiums. Plenty of parking and handicap accessible. The pier is a great place to enjoy fishing as well as all the panoramic views of the Gulf.
