Ocean side campgrounds on the gulf

Hello, looking for some help selecting a destination along the gulf coast. We will be celebrating our 45th anniversary in Feb. and I'm want to surprise the wife with a trip. See loves to spend tine on the beach so I'm looking for somewhere either on the water or within walking distance. One place I have looked at is Buccaneer State Park in Mississippi. Anyone familiar with it? We do travel with 2 Labradors, so it will have to be pet friendly. Our rig is a Jayco Octane 29t, so we should fit most normal size sites. I'd like to be anywhere along the coast from Mississippi to the panhandle area, want to keep it under 1,000 miles from mid Illinois. Any and all ideas will be considered. Thanks for the help.

Doc's RV in Gulf Shores AL is a quiet park not on the beach but close. It's a bit further but On the Beach in Port Aransas TX is nice and is one sand dune away from the beach.

Watch the weather, February can be a bit "dicey" on the Gulf Coast. One day you might have sunny and mild paradise, and the next, it's a wet and wintry wonderland. Ask me how I know.

Don't Florida beaches have a strict "no dogs on the beach" policy? Perhaps it's only in the state parks, but I was looking a while back at places to go in Florida, and the feel I got was that Florida IS NOT a dog friendly place. At least insofar as beaches are concerned?

Just thought I'd mention it since OP has two Labs in tow. Dogs are welcome on TX beaches (clean up after them please), and RedHorse is absolutely right, Port Aransas is great for beach bums, especially if you can catch some nice weather that time of year.

Last weekend would have been BEAUTIFUL to be on the beach. Sunny and mild. This weekend, cool and rainy... At least it's not supposed to be COLD.

By far my favorite campground that we've visited. We've been twice in the past and will be there this August. We bring our dog. He stays at the TT, while we ride bikes to the beach.
