2 Reviews of Big Biloxi Recreation Area
This is a campsite of 25 lots (4 accessible) with a bathhouse and friendly camp host. Located in the De Soto National Forest just north of Gulfport, MS, it’s an easily accessible campground whether you’re here to visit the Gulf or do some hiking on the many miles of trails through the park.
Dog-friendly and clean, there is a 1/2 mile nature hike within the campground.
First to Review
Big Biloxi Campground is conveniently located about 20 mins from I-10 so it’s easy to make a pit stop to relax and unwind. The host was very nice ans attentive. He also gives you your space so you can have one time. The campground is spacious so there’s plenty of room between camps. There’s electric hook up for RV and lost of room for tent. I chose to camp in my hammock and it was relaxing. Most of the campsites have enough trees for hammock camping. There’s fire pits, picnic tables, water and electricity so you can charge your phone if needed. The bathrooms were clean and have flushable toilets. A shower’s available to get that dirt off you. Overall the experience was nice. at night you may hear vehicles in the distance but other than that i had a peaceful night.
