Try out Rocky Bayou/Fred Gannon SP at Niceville, FL. It is across the Bay Bridge from Top Sail. It has beach "sister" privileges at Henderson. It is clean and has large camping sites. Nice walking trails and shower/bathrooms. Crossing the bridge costs $4. last time we were there. It was not nearly as expensive as Top Sail. A little gem.

Notwithstanding the name, the Luxury RV Park rate is going to about the same as the state park. In fact, with rising state park rates and the reserve America fee for Florida state parks (particularly for short stays), private parks compare favorably for price. Topsail is almost $50 a night. State parks are still my first choice due to layout and privacy but I just want to make sure there isn't a false assumption on price.
I've stayed at almost all of the other parks mentioned and they are all good. It really comes down to location and where you want to be.

We had a great time at Ft. Pickens SP. Very good prices, esp. if you are a senior.

Most states have 6 months out, as the the start for making reservations. Here in Co. they are gone in 2 weeks. Plan ahead.
Best of luck.

Looks like most beachside parks are booked through June. We were able to get in at Johnny's Lakeside RV. June 12 - 18. Looks to be about 10 minutes from beach. But has nice pool and water slides for the kids.

Appreciate all the suggestions. I'll definitely have to start planning earlier next year. This will be our first major trip in the Airstream. Lots of work to do between now and then.

Little secret. I have been to the state park in Gulf Shores over a dozen times. I have never made reservations. Almost every trip over Internet has said full and they have had the "full" sign posted. I ask for a spot and have never been turned away. Usually end up with a good spot close to the pool. Remember this a secret so do not tell anyone.

Johnny's may be 15 minutes to gulf shores city limits but probably 30 minutes to beach. But does have a great pool with water slides and lazy river. It is also located next to a liquidation center which is popular day time activity for many of the snowbird guests. It is about 10 minutes from outlets. Be sure to consider lambert' with family style food and throwed rolls by outlet. Gift horse in downtown foley also has a good traditional daily southern buffet. There is an excellent and free model railroad musuem in downtown foley open on Saturday. I like neptunes seafood in gulf shores. Tin top in Bon secour is also excellent. Have fun.

Reservations

We returned from Gulf Shores State Park a little over a week ago. While we were there, the NAARvA had their South East rally on site. There were 250 or more Class A's in attendance. Really glad we had a reservation for a site we wanted. Kathy
