    Daphne, Alabama

    Meaher State Park Campground, near Spanish Fort, AL, is a solid spot for camping all year round. This place has a lot going for it, especially if you’re into waterfront views and spacious sites. Some campers have mentioned that the sites are nicely spaced out, so you’re not staring into your neighbor’s RV. Plus, if you’re lucky, you might snag one of those coveted waterfront spots.

    The campground is pretty well-equipped. You’ve got electric and water hookups, showers, and even a sanitary dump. Pets are welcome, and there’s a market on-site if you need to grab some essentials. Fires are allowed, so you can enjoy a good old-fashioned campfire. Just keep in mind that the showers are push-button, which might take a bit of getting used to.

    For those who like to explore, you’re just a short drive from the USS Alabama Memorial Park and the Naval Air Station in Pensacola. Both are worth a visit if you’ve got the time. And if you’re into seafood, there’s a great spot called Felix’s just down the road.

    The park itself is clean and well-maintained, with plenty of shady spots and asphalt streets. Some campers have noted that you can hear the nearby I-10, but it’s not a deal-breaker. The restrooms are clean, and there’s even free Wi-Fi if you need to stay connected.

    Overall, Meaher State Park Campground is a great place to kick back, enjoy some beautiful views, and maybe even spot an alligator or two. Whether you’re in a tent, RV, or cabin, you’ll find what you need for a comfortable stay.
