In Orange Beach, Gulf State Park is one the most popular beach destinations for good reason. Amenities include over 2-miles of glistening white quartz sandy beach, a 1540-foot pier for saltwater fishing and sightseeing, freshwater fishing on Lake Shelby, kayaking, paddle-boarding, a zip-line, tennis courts, swimming pool, and championship golf course. Relax at the shaded picnic pavilion and stop in the nature center for exhibits and programs such as guided hikes. Make it an overnight with cabin and cottage rentals, or camping. Running through the park, is the the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail which travels through six ecosystems: wet pine flatwoods, live oak maritime forest, coastal dune and swales, longleaf sand ridges, freshwater marshes and coastal hardwood swamp. Hike or bike over 14-miles of paved multi-use trail (bike rentals nearby), enjoy geocaching, and wildlife watching, observe gophers, tortoises, armadillos, American alligators, and 4 sites listed on the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail.
