    There is also a snack bar by the pier that serves light food and snacks of the microwaveable variety. Prices are average. My pizza was fine, for microwave pizza.

    Picnic Area by the Pier

    by Basaic Written Feb 2, 2011

    There are a few picnic areas in the park so you can bring your own food and eat lunch by the water. The picnic area by the pier is pretty large.

    Sand Dunes

    The sand dunes along the beach support a variety of wildlife but are very fragile so please stay off them and enjoy them from an appropriate distance.

    Gulf state Park Lodge Restaurant Restaurant

    The Gulf State Park hotel has a buffet restaurant. The morning buffer is quite popular. With huge windows facing the Gulf,it's a relaxing place to enjoy the quite sizeable breakfast buffet (but they also have lunch and dinner and seafood buffet on Friday). It's not fancy and a little kitsch with the marine decoration but it's affordable and the food quality is good.

    Favorite Dish: The sausages and bacon are quite good.

    Please obey all warning signs they are there to protect you and the facilities. Beware of occasional strong currents in the water and watch out for excessive heat and sudden thunderstorms in the summer.
