We spent 3 nights at the campground. It is located close to the beach, sea lab and bird sanctuary. The pads are gravel and dirt with water, sewer and power. We were told that one cannot reserve a certain spot or select an area. We ended up with an assigned space next to the main road leading to the camp ground and the old fort and were directly across from the ferry harbor. It was very noisy day and night.

Overun with ferril cats that spray everything and anything. Wi Fi is almost non existant. Our friends left after 1 day, (they payed 2 weeks). We left a few days early. Dirty beaches. Our site had'nt be raked in years, and the septic ran uphill?

This was our second visit to Dauphin Island Campground. This time around we were tent camping on the Gulf Coast. We wanted to explore Dauphin Island as it had been several years since our last visit. The campground has a few tent camping sites set off to themselves nestled up against the Audubon Bird Sanctuary. There are sandy trails leading to the Gulf and the Bird Sanctuary from the campground. All the tent sites have water and electric hookups right on the site. The RV and trailer sites were pretty full on our trip there in October. The tent sites only had three participants. That could have something to do with Tropical Storm Nester baring down on the Gulf Coast. We had planned to stay two nights but our trip was cut short by a night due to this storm. The bathhouse offered clean bathrooms and showers. Nice to have that amenity be clean and worthy of visiting. This is a fun and inexpensive way to stay on the Gulf Coast. Bring your camper or grab a tent (as we did) and stay on the secluded Dauphin Island. There is plenty there to do for a few days.

We went to this campground and were really unimpressed. The area is beautiful, the campground is cluttered and the staff are rude. We wanted to cancel our last night 24 hours ahead of time because our youngest child started puking...not so fun on vacation...and were told “sorry, no refunds”. We asked if they would transfer our payment for a future trip so we could come back and they would not budge. I can’t deal with a company who offers no sympathy or grace towards something so unexpected. We have young children and paying for a night we didn’t get to stay is really painful. We are going to Gulf Shores State Park this year, it has better reviews.
