Camping/Glamping on Suzanne's property was great, and I'd definitely recommend! Particularly to those who are new to camping, or simply want a more comfortable experience.
She had an outdoor kitchen (screened in), a really cool bathroom (yes, that's a weird sentence, but it was very cozy and decorated), plenty of space, a giant fire pit, and for the bring-no-supplies type, a tent with an double-decker air mattress already set up.
You're far enough from the house too, so it feels pretty private. However! The property is set up well, should you go with multiple people it'd be easy to feel like a mini party.
Also, for the first time in the Southeast, I heard coyotes in the distance, which was very very cool.

Fancy living.The kitchen!The hosts house. Easier to see in the daytime.This site also would've been a top contender. Pretty spacious and flat ground. Pretty close to the fire/kitchen/bathroom.

My girlfriend and I spent two nights here to get away from New Orleans. It is located between the beaches of Gulf Shores and the city of Mobile, two great places to visit. The accommodations were great for light camping. The back lots were flooded due to heavy rain before we arrived but Suzanne was very accommodating in finding a spot on the property to camp. The back lots were plenty secluded for a sense of privacy and I’m sure are rarely flooded. We will return on another weekend getaway.

What a lovely little camp Suzanne & Greg have made! It was even better than we were expecting, the grounds we're really pretty, the bathhouse & kitchen were wonderful, and our hosts were so kind & helpful. We can't wait to have another opportunity to come back. It was a short drive to a great/easy birding hike and there were sweet restaurants and markets nearby.
