YaYa's River Retreat

100 sites · RVs, Tents41 acres · Robertsdale, AL
A little slice of camping heaven, 41 acres with 800 feet of water frontage on Styx River. YaYa's is a completely primative or boondocking campground and swim area with porta pottie available. There is hot showers available at truck stop about a mile away and they have a dump station for those in RV. Come enjoy all the natural beauty or we are within an hour of hundreds of things to do for all ages. YaYA lives about 1/2 mile away and has a well available to refill your water. There is plenty of fallen wood to gather for fires or cut wood available for purchase. We have a community area with picnic tables, sun sails, grill, pavilion, and large bonfire. Please note the access road is old gravel and dirt, so if in a low car you'll need to take it slow. If there has been rain call ahead for entry directions as part of road becomes muddy. There is also a shooting range near by so during the day you will hear this some. You will not be disappointed if you love the tranquility of being outdoors.

Airstream Gypsy Hideaway

1 site · Lodging5 acres · Silverhill, AL
This is country life. The airstream hideaway sits on 6 acres surrounded by woods, farmland, birds, deer, rabbits, foxes, and more. Instead of eliminating nature, we embrace awareness and knowledge for coexisting with insects, wildlife, critters, plants, etc. For visitors who love walking: the three roads of this neighborhood are dead ends and have hills. Perimeters of agricultural fields can also be walked, if desired. Other things to note: Our home is on site and located toward the front of the property. The outdoor space includes patio mat, picnic table, charcoal BBQ grill, chairs, fire pit, and RV awning. It is a cool spot to relax. The front porch becomes an outdoor dining area in moments. I try to keep wood for the fire pit nearby for guests to use. At night, the fresh air and crackling fire pit bring back memories of youthful whispered stories.

Beach camping in Alabama guide

Overview

Alabama’s coastline might be short—a 60-mile slice of Gulf Coast sandwiched between Mississippi and Florida—but what it lacks in length, it makes up for in scenery. When temperatures heat up (expect average highs of 90°F in summer), Alabama campers head to the south shore, where white-sand beaches, barrier islands, and gentle surf provide the perfect turf for swimming, water sports, and dolphin-watching cruises. Beachfront campgrounds and RV resorts dot the shores of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, Alabama’s flagship beaches, while Gulf State Park has everything from simple tent sites to full hookup RV sites and luxurious cottages on the shores of Lake Shelby. Further west, the tranquil beaches and bird-filled marshes of Dauphin Island are the best bet for escaping the crowds, especially through winter. Speaking of which, there’s no better spot for winter camping than the Gulf Coast, with daytime temperatures rarely dropping below the mid-50s.
