This park is giant! There are probably over 200 sites for camping in this park with beachfront sites and even primitive drive up sites for tent camping back in the woods. The park has 2 shower areas and 4 bathrooms on site as well as multiple playgrounds for the kiddos and even a water park! It is located directly across the street from the Gulf of Mexico and has its own private beach. I stayed in the primitive camping sites for 2 nights because all other sites were reserved for the weekend and it was great. No electric hookup or water but the sites are privately tucked away in the woods and only cost 15$ per night. If you want, you can stay beachfront for 48$ and I believe the regular sites with hookups and water are around $30 per night. The park itself is very well maintained and has ice and drinks for sale in the front office. The employees are extremely nice and helpful and will even tell you about fun things to do in town while you’re there. Definitely the biggest and one of the nicest campgrounds/state parks I’ve stayed in. Worth the trip!
It’s a city not a national park though one could make argument big cities are like zoos. Anyway super cheap under $20 full hookup. Sherltered behind gas station next to a free way so there is noise but not inside cab. Laundry room was clean and operating as was showers. Owner was nice enough to walk us out. No frills off street Orleans on a budget look no further
A very nice state park. Our visit was too short to enjoy much, but we definitely did enjoy it for the overnight-to-late-morning that we were there! and, there are playgrounds and a beach!
A family of raccoons must have been fed by someone, though, as they had NO fear nor qualms of coming right up to our table end one evening! 😱
You need you military ID card only once, and that's to check in. It's located just outside of the base and the VA. It's clean, lots of space between each concrete slab, and the host is very friendly. We go there every winter.
We recently stayed in a cabin with 4 kids. This campground was perfect. The girls enjoyed being able to play outside and the pool. The scenery was gorgeous as well.
I liked that it was close to Biloxi/Ocean Springs but it is off the beaten path and peaceful. It was great with the kids because the cabin has everything we could need and we didn’t have to go out to eat for meals. We could enjoy just hanging out.
The cabins are slightly dated but very clean. The staff was friendly and so were other campers. We will definitely be back to stay again in the future.
Love this place, small, quiet, close to Bayou & Lake Pontchatrain. Close to good restaurants & fresh seafood.
This is such a lovely park! Just north of Lake Pontchartrain on the river, it’s quaint and clean. We only stayed one evening, but our sunset walk was worth it! Be mindful to choose a spot with lots of shade- we didn’t and regretted it.
This was the first time we ever spent a week at an RV park. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, the location is ideal for spending time at the beach, and the facilities are top notch. As RV newbies, we were treated with Southern hospitality each and every day. The location is across the road from the beach, and the road was easily crossed with our two dogs and a wagon with our beach stuff. One note, the beach has signs posted banning dogs, but we had no issues with our two coonhound mixes. This property is no more than a couple of years old, and the clubhouse , pool, and pads are all clean, neat, and easily accessed. My girlfriend was especially impressed with the showers, comparing them to luxury hotels. The only negative I have is that there are no fire pits or rings. Perhaps this isn’t a regional thing. Overall, I was very impressed and will make a point of returning next year.
Friendly, kind and helpful owners offer a kid’s playground, swimming pool and large RV campsites. Full hookups at most sites. Tent camping accommodated as well.
Flint creek has TONS of sites with full hook ups in 30 and/or 50 amp and even a primitive (water only) tent sites. Different sections allow folks to feel like they are away from the crowds. Price is absolutely reasonable and there is night security by staff and local law enforcement.
The water park has a ton of slides and will keep kids young and old entertained sliding down the hill into the lake.
Several swimming holes and boat ramps lets you enjoy the lake however you want.
Flint Creek has a little of everything for everyone. There’s a large lake which is good fishing (there’s a boat launch in the park and in the campground itself) beach swimming areas (one for day use and the other for the campers) there’s an updated water park with slides and a lazy river. The water for this is pumped in from the lake so it’s not a fresh blue water like in a swimming pool! There’s a section of first come first served campsites and a section of reservation only sites. All the sites are blacktopped and are very nice. The bathhouses could use some attention though. The town of Wiggins has lots of restaurants and grocery stores very close by.
Humble little Pelican RV Park is not for the faint of heart! For the lucky few who can appreciate a unique city-camping experience, it's an adventure all unto itself! Located off the canal in the Gentilly neighborhood of New Orleans, this area is legendary for its street-racing scene. You'll find yourself with front row seats to the action, which goes on most nights of the week and draws huge crowds from all over the world. The park is small, and what it may lack in amenities is made up for by its oversized lots and reasonable rates. An easy 6-minute drive puts you in the French Quarter, and the gated community is often a little-while home to some of New Orleans' many musicians and performers. The property owner and operator, Greg, has a heart of gold. Be sure to stop in at Smiley's Grill, located at the park's entrance, to say hi to Greg and grab a good meal for a great price, as well.
I like to stay at this park because it’s close to family and the beach. I’ve stayed 3 time in the past year. They have a pool and putt putt golf available as well as fishing on the property. Large sites friendly and helpful staff, recently added WiFi. It’s a private resort and is available for Coast to Coast members. Pet friendly too!
We pulled in not knowing what to expect. Being in a tent for a week they allowed us to set up wherever we wanted and accommodated us nicely. This campground is nothing fancy and mostly full timers, the bathhouses are well kept, except there is one shower for the entire campground (the women's was down) but we never ran into an issue with showering at the same time as anyone else so we didn't mind. You are directly next to The Shed BBQ, across from a gas store, within 10 minutes to a Wal-Mart and 15-20 minutes to Biloxi Beach. Connie and Lou were great and always on top of things when something needed to be done and the full timers here are so welcoming and help in any way they can. They made our family of 6 feel at home, we will definitely be back!
I've spent much of my life here. There's plenty of walking trails, and you can check out the gator alley area where you'll typically see at least one gator. There are plenty of pavilions around that you can rent for larger events, but it's generally pretty quiet here. It's far enough in the woods to where you don't hear much of the city traffic, but close enough to where emergency vehicles could reach you very quickly in case something happened. Safe area for kids, adults, and pets. You're guaranteed to see some pretty cool wildlife and sunsets!
We stayed there a couple of weeks ago. They have a super clean shower/bath house and a really nice laundry facility. We really enjoyed going to the pool and using the community area.
The Taylors are great owners . Their team that takes care of the facility are extremely nice and helpful, and that also includes the camp host. We cant wait to get back there so that's why we booked another stay in July. Cant wait to see some of the new upgrades to the park.
