Gulf Shore State Park introduces new cabins on Lake Shelby

Gulf Shore State park held a ribbon cutting ceremony for new cabins that were unveiled on Lake Shelby as part of an $8.8 million project that has gone on since 2020 and Hurricane Sally.

17 damaged structures from the storm were replaced with 20 new and more modern lakeside cabins, according to OutdoorAlabama.

All 20 cabins are directly on the lake and include modern furniture, appliances, and screened porches as well as the ability to hold up to 8 guests.

“This is a special day because we’re finally open for business again at the Lakeside Cabins,”
said Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Commissioner Chris Blankenship.

“We’re committed to creating a first-class guest experience at every state park, and these gorgeous cabins definitely deliver on that promise. It’s rewarding to see these cabins looking better than ever.”

The park already had 10 cabins, making the total available at 30.

“Gulf State Park is one of our area’s top attractions, and these projects show the deep commitment that the Alabama State Parks system has to Alabama’s Gulf Coast,” Gulf Shores Mayor Robert Craft said. “It’s wonderful to have such fantastic partners who make our area better by improving and expanding offerings for those visiting from near and far.”
