                               POWER OF ATTORNEY

Know all by these present, that the undersigned hereby constitutes and appoints
each of Patrick K. Craine and Zachary Simpson, individually, the undersigned's
true and lawful attorney-in-fact to:

     (1)  execute for and on behalf of the undersigned, in the undersigned's
          capacity as an officer and/or director of Gulfport Energy Corporation
          (the "Company"), Forms 3, 4 and 5 (including amendments thereto) in
          accordance with Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934
          (the "Exchange Act") and the rules thereunder, and any other forms or
          reports the undersigned may be required to file in connection with the
          undersigned's ownership, acquisition, or disposition of securities of
          the Company;

     (2)  do and perform any and all acts for and on behalf of the undersigned
          that may be necessary or desirable to complete and execute any such
          Form 3, 4 or 5, complete and execute any amendment or amendments
          thereto, file such Form with the United States Securities and Exchange
          Commission and any stock exchange or similar authority, and provide a
          copy as required by law or advisable to such persons as such attorney-
          in-fact deems appropriate; and

     (3)  take any other action of any type whatsoever in connection with the
          foregoing that, in the opinion of such attorney-in-fact, may be of
          benefit to, in the best interest of, or legally required of the
          undersigned, it being understood that the documents executed by such
          attorney-in-fact on behalf of the undersigned pursuant to this Power
          of Attorney shall be in such form and shall contain such terms and
          conditions as such attorney-in-fact may approve in such attorney-in-
          fact's discretion.

The undersigned hereby grants to each such attorney-in-fact full power and
authority to do and perform any and every act and thing whatsoever requisite,
necessary, or proper to be done in the exercise of any of the rights and powers
herein granted, as fully to all intents and purposes as the undersigned might or
could do if personally present, with full power of substitution or revocation,
hereby ratifying and confirming all that such attorney-in-fact, or such
attorney-in-fact's substitute or substitutes, shall lawfully do or cause to be
done by virtue of this Power of Attorney and the rights and powers herein
granted. The undersigned acknowledges that the foregoing attorneys-in-fact, and
their substitutes, in serving in such capacity at the request of the
undersigned, are not assuming (nor is the Company nor any of its affiliates
assuming) any of the undersigned's responsibilities to comply with Section 16 of
the Exchange Act.

The undersigned agrees that each such attorney-in-fact may rely entirely on
information furnished orally or in writing by or at the direction of the
undersigned to such attorney-in-fact. The undersigned also agrees to indemnify
and hold harmless the Company and its affiliates and each such attorney-in-fact
against any losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in these
respects) that arise out of or are based upon any untrue statements or omissions
of necessary facts in the information provided by or at the direction of the
undersigned, or upon the lack of timeliness in the delivery of information by or
at the direction of the undersigned, to that attorney-in fact for purposes of
executing, acknowledging, delivering or filing any Form 3, 4 or 5 (including any
amendment thereto) and agrees to reimburse the Company and its affiliates and
such attorney-in-fact on demand for any legal or other expenses reasonably
incurred in connection with investigating or defending against any such loss,
claim, damage, liability or action.

This Power of Attorney shall remain in full force and effect until the
undersigned is no longer required to file Forms 3, 4 and 5 with respect to the
undersigned's holdings of and transactions in securities issued by the Company
unless earlier revoked by the undersigned in a signed writing delivered to the
foregoing attorneys-in-fact.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the undersigned has caused this Power of Attorney to be
executed as of the date written below.
