Love Exploring Logo By Ella Buchan of Love Exploring | Slide 2 of 51: The pristine white beaches of Gulf Shores and neighboring Orange Beach are something of an open secret – those who discover them tend to return again and again. The long sandy stretch is lined with hotels but one of the best ways to experience the area’s natural beauty is to camp in Gulf State Park, with nearly 500 spaces for tents and RVs close to the beach and birdlife-rich Shelby Lake. There are also cabins and glamping sites. The campground is open but check the website for updates.
