    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.

    Eight Mile, Alabama

    Chickasabogue Park is temporarily closed to the public effective Jan 31, 2022, for infrastructure and amenity improvements. It will remain closed until construction and renovation are complete. It’s estimated the park will be closed for at least a year.

    While the park is closed, residents should note that the nearest alternate boat launch is at William Brooks Park, located at 601 US-43, Chickasaw, AL 36611. The nearest Mobile County RV campground is River Delta Marina and Campground, 2350 Dead Lake Road, Creola, AL 36525; reservations may be made by calling 251-574-2266.

    Park renovation includes infrastructure work like water, sewer and roadwork as well as construction of an events and interpretive center, playground/splash pad area, RV campground, parking areas, boat ramp, additional disc golf holes, and new restroom facilities. Once it reopens, Chickasabogue will have improved amenities including its trails, basketball courts, restrooms, pavilions, RV camping sites and generally enhanced park infrastructure.

    Chickasabogue Park is an 1,100-acre outdoor recreation facility and wildlife refuge in Eight Mile, Alabama. The park is less than 15 minutes from downtown Mobile and provides a wide variety of outdoor activities in a natural setting while protecting the environment and preserving the diversity of indigenous plants and animals. The park has about 17 miles of hiking and biking trails, a disc golf course, sports fields, a boat launch, RV campgrounds, and a beach on Chickasabogue Creek, which connects the park to Mobile Bay.

    Chickasabogue Park improvements are part of Mobile County Commission’s multi-year, $40 million parks improvement initiative that includes $35 million for increased public access to water.

    Mobile County Commission’s parks improvement initiative is made possible through funding generated by the Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act (GOMESA). Authorized uses of GOMESA funds, generated through Alabama’s offshore oil and gas drilling leases, include conserving, protecting and mitigating the impact of such activity by implementing a federally-approved conservation plan. Part of the local conservation plan is to increase public access to shoreline recreational areas, such as along the Chickasabogue Creek.

    Think of Big Lagoon State Park as a gateway. It not only offers swimming, boating, fishing, camping, hiking and paddling, but adventurers also can begin or end a 1,515-mile sea kayaking journey on the Florida Circumnavigational Saltwater Paddling Trail around the entire state. The top half of a kayak embedded in sand marks the launch site along with a box containing a weathered log book.

    The park is also a gateway for the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail. The park is a stopover for more than 23 species of wood-warbler and a variety of ducks, sandpipers and black-bellied plovers. Bring binoculars or borrow a pair from the ranger station and roam the shore and extensive coastal forest, or climb the three-story observation tower for a bird’s-eye view.
