This is our second trip to Camp Gulf, and while I wasn't excited about the $120/night for a site across from the dumpster I have to say that I don't regret it! Why stay here? 1)Easy walk/bike ride to the beach, 2)activities, and 3)only place with a pool you can get in during the month of March! The dome on...

Never go to this place. Rude staff and very unprofessional management. Two ladies in the gift shop were rude to my children so when confronted about the situation they lied. I guess they took what had happened to the so called manager and gave him a different story. Next morning after paying for an extra day we were told we...

PatrickONeill, Manager at Camp Gulf, responded to this review

Sir, we are sorry that you had to leave, however due to the violence of your language and your threatening tone to all of our staff it was necessary that you leave for the enjoyment of other guests. No one spoke ill to your children, however when the manager came to your site you dropped every curse word you knew...

My husband and I love this RV park. We park on the beach front and the Gulf of Mexico is our view out the front window of our RV. You cannot get much closer. I wish the sites were a little wider, but everyone places their chairs, unbrellas, etc. out front to get the full view. Wonderful restaurants near by...

you could be, literally, on the beach at this campground. if you choose not to be that close, there are plenty of options. Very clean, kid friendly, nice heated pool and hot tub (super hot). There are activities for kids and adults every day. highly recommended, but make reservations well in advanced. This place is highly popular and it gets...

Very much enjoyed the friendly nice Camp Gulf people while we were there. From the check-in to the landscaping and maintenance folks, they were always willing to be of assistance. Showers were newer and clean and the grounds were kept up nicely. Looking forward to our next stay here.

Often people talk about camping at the beach and make suggestions to camp grounds "on the beach", only to find out that information is misleading. This is not the case!! Camp Gulf is truly A on the beach campground!!! You can actually stay on the sand in the comfort of your RV, or if the sand in the camper isn't...

We have been here two years in a row and regret that we cannot make it for the 2017 summer. This is one of the Best places we have visited in our RV. We drive in from North of Houston and the long drive is worth it. I can't say enough about how great this place is. We brag to...

Very surprised. Clean park. Everything worked well. Internet is slow if everyone is in their rig and using it. Otherwise excellent when overall usage is lower. Everything is close within the park. The walk to the beach is super easy. Two pools, fishing pond, volleyball, camp store, etc. Everyone we met was quite friendly. Sites are large especially in the...

We visited in our motor home for 2 days, which was not nearly long enough! Very clean, well kept, and all the amenities one could ask for. The staff was helpful and friendly, as was everyone we encountered. We will definitely return.
