Heart of the Country

8 sites · RVs, Tents12 acres · Bay Minette, AL
Heart of the Country is our home and also your own personal twelve acre state park whenever you stay with us! We are less than 15 minutes from Interstate 10 and from Interstate 65. I offer a half-dozen campsites, all either on a relatively level paved driveway or grass. Power (20 amp and 30 amp) and water is available. We have two 30 amp campsites, which are first come, first served. WIFI is available! (please ask for password). We have a portable toilet for your use. This is a Longleaf Pine sanctuary with lots of nature trails. This is also a hobby farm with livestock (Donkey, two Goats, a Duck and a flock of Chickens). I feed the livestock grain every morning usually between 8 and 9 am, and again hay before dusk. You are always welcome to join me and I'll introduce all of them to you! My dog, Homer, is our very friendly welcoming ambassador who will enthusiastically great you upon your arrival. I put him up in his kennel each evening around dusk, then lock him in his shed until morning which keeps him from backing during the night. We also host an AirBnB, so other guests may be here as well. Texting via the app is our preferred mode of communication. If you call, please leave a message if I can't answer, and I will call you back. We are slowly updating the site photos. Use them only to determine your price, for example: A site with 30 amp power and water is $25 per night. A site with 20 amp power and water is $20 per night. A boondocking site (no power) is $15 per night. All sites have access to a porta-potty and water. Suggested local attraction: Blakeley State Historic Park is four miles away.

RV camping near Gulf Shores with hot tubs guide


Gulf Shores is Alabama’s answer to beach life on the Gulf of Mexico. Tranquil stretches of white sand and turquoise water attract beach campers from near and far to popular coastal destinations like Orange Beach. Nearby campgrounds and RV parks promise campers year-round service. Many of these campsites feature electric, water, and sewer hookups, as well as full restrooms. Aside from its picturesque beaches, Gulf Shores is home to the 7,000-acre Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, Gulf State Park, and the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail. Set up for the night near each of these natural attractions at cabin rentals and on-site campgrounds near trailheads and beaches.

Where to go

Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge

Enjoy wildlife watching, hiking, kayaking, and canoeing during a day trip to Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. Situated on more than 7,000 acres, the refuge provides a habitat for migrating birds, sea turtles, and the Alabama beach mouse. Find natural coastal habitats traversed by six trails with skill levels that range from easy to moderately difficult. On-site camping is unavailable, but nearby private campgrounds and cabin rentals offer a convenient jumping-off point for exploring the park by foot, kayak, or canoe.

Gulf State Park

With its coastal location, Gulf State Park places campers on some of the region’s most beautiful beaches. The park boasts two miles of white sandy coastal stretches as well as 6,500 acres of natural terrain. Swim, hike, beachcomb, and catch glimpses of resident wildlife along 28-miles of trails. Then, set up for the night on the on-site campground that offers 496 campsites within walking distance of the beach and amenities like full hookups, paved pads, and picnic tables. Air-conditioned bathhouse rentals are also available.

Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail

Witness the wild side of coastal Alabama and hike the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail. Hikers and bikers can glimpse natural alligator habitats and spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico. Check out the butterfly sanctuary along the trek or look for migrating sea birds, as well. The trail leads through dynamic terrain that includes hardwood swamps and freshwater marshes. Primitive campsites are available along the trail—close to Gulf Shores. Some offer nylon cots and pump sinks.

When to go

Spring and fall are among the most popular times to visit Gulf Shores because of the mild temperatures. With cool winters with average high temperatures in the high 50s and hot summers that see temperatures of 90°F, Gulf Shores attracts campers year-round. Many of the area’s most popular RV parks and campsites are located near the beach and are equipped to handle each season.
