Take A Trip To This Southern US RV Park For A Luxurious Camping Trip

With the holiday season just around the corner, many snowbirds are revving up their RVs and heading south for the winter. If you're one of them searching for cooler temperatures and white sandy beaches, look no further than Bella Terra of Gulf Shores. This luxury RV resort is a stone's throw from the Gulf of Mexico in Foley, Alabama, just off the I-10 highway between New Orleans and Tallahassee.

This little slice of paradise sits on 33 acres of land with a 9-acre lake in the center. Thanks to its tranquil atmosphere, lake views from around the park, and numerous amenities, the park has earned a 4.7 rating on Google with travelers who are eager to return. Visitors have access to a zero-entry infinity pool, a hot tub, a movie theater, and a clubhouse with a wealth of activities to keep you busy. You're free to come for the weekend or stick around long-term, as lots are available at daily, weekly, or monthly rates.

Luxurious lots and pricing

Bella Terra offers an impressive collection of oversized RV lots, with some areas boasting as much as 4,500 square feet of personal space. Many lots come with full kitchens, firepits, and amenities to shield you from the elements, like shady pergolas for the midday heat or covered patios for those delightful afternoon showers typical of destinations in the South.

The cost will depend on the time of year you want to visit and the amenities at your site. The peak season at the park is considered November through April, with holidays and festivals increasing demand during the year. A traditional lot with the basics ranges from $85 to $125 per night. If you're looking for more amenities, like a grill or outdoor sink, you might prefer a premium lot, which runs from $95 to $135 per night. The park often runs specials for the holidays, like five nights for the price of three for Veteran's Day. Visitors can explore the lots in the online catalog and filter searches by bedrooms and price to organize their perfect stay.

Park amenities and nearby attractions

Once you've nailed down your perfect lot, it's time to explore the amenities on site. In addition to the pool and hot tub, you can relax in the gazebo in the middle of the lake or try your hand at a few rounds of mini golf. There's also a 6,000-square-foot clubhouse with a movie theater that seats 14, a massage room, a business room with a computer and printer, and a fitness center with gym equipment, a sauna, and lockers. Of course, there's coin-operated laundry, restrooms, and full kitchens.

The clubhouse offers weekly activities like group breakfasts, dance classes, mahjong, bingo, poker nights, and Thirsty Thursday cocktail hour. There are also sign-up sheets for group trips to the downtown area, like the Art Walk, farmers' markets, and fishermen's markets. Suppose you prefer to venture out on your own. In that case, you'll discover plenty of attractions in the local area, like an 18-round golf course at Gulf Links, a chance to spot 600-plus alligators at Alligator Alley or a tour of the Bellingrath Gardens with an award-winning rose garden. With so much to see and do, don't be surprised if your weekend trip to Alabama turns into a vacation all season long.
