Dauphin Island RV Campgrounds

Bay Palms RV Resort – Coden
Located on Dauphin Island Parkway near the bridge that runs to Dauphin Island. The resort has 131 sites with full hookups, pool, laundry, cable, wi-fi, and a clubhouse that includes an exercise facility.

Dauphin Island Campground – Dauphin Island
We gave this campground high marks in our Dauphin Island Campground Review (see article) and look forward to a return visit, The campground offers 150 sites with electric service and water; 75 of these sites also have sewer hookup. An RV dump station is available for those without sewer hookups. While the roads within the park are paved, the generally level campsites are grass covered and sandy. Most sites get some shade during parts of the day. Decent wi-fi service in the clubhouse, immaculate washrooms, decent laundry, and a small general store. Lots to like about this place.
