Great for Overnight

While maybe not a destination site, it’s great for overnighting. We’ve stayed here for an overnight several years in a row on our way to Gulf Shores from Central AR. Concrete pads, full hookups, excellent satellite reception throughout the park. The RV Park is adjacent to a multi purpose facility. Rodeo, barrel racing, concerts, gatherings, etc. In our stops here, the park has never been more than a 1/3 occupied. Plenty of spaces to choose from. Payment is the honor system. $20 on the way out!

Nice location

Nice location. Across the street from the beach. Nice pool. Clean bathhouse. Lots of activities like putt putt golf, go carts, sailing, fishing etc.

Very nice campground

Nice sites. Has a wave pool and regular pool. Close to beach. Clean bathhouses.

My Absolute Favorite

LBC is my favorite campground that I’ve ever been to. The sites are nice and spacious. All are blacktopped. Some have wooden decks. We’ve stayed along the waterside which is AMAZING and have also stayed across the street from the beach! The playground is small and sweet. The beach/swim area in the campground needs to be taken care of. The grass is starting to overgrow in that particular area which is a shame because the rest of the park is so very well taken care of.

A decent spot, not really “disperse”.

It’s pretty close to the road and the drive in loop has cars making noise and lights all night.

Good because I was only one of 2 people there.. I imagine more people would be not as great a place.

Very Quit

Nice and quit. Security cameras throw out the park. Have handicap bathrooms and Laundry room. Very clean throw out the park. Place to walk your dogs.

An older resort, mainly retirees. Private membership & Coast to Coast

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!

Good for All Ages!

My husband and I are 4H Outdoor Skills Instructors. We took our class on their first hike here. The kids as well as the adults had a good time. The Nature Trail was a little short (under an hour) but that is perfect for little kids.

awesome

I love going to the coast the fishing is awesome

Best little place

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!

Relaxing

Sites around the water and a lot of trees for shade.

Close enough to civilization, but far enough to feel secluded

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!

Very Nice RV Park

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.

Awesome weekend camp

This camp was pretty awesome for free really, it was clean restrooms..clean water.. no electricity but that was okay we chose campsite #1 because it was the only site on the side of the river. Site #1 had it’s own little paths down to the river however I’d recommend walking down the gravel road to the sandbar. Overall I WILL continue to come here

Fun place to stay

We enjoy this campground for many reasons- fishing, beach/swim area, nice campsites. They also have a couple playgrounds and a splash pad for the kids.

Right in the heart of Ocean Springs

Located directly off Highway 90 in Ocean Springs, this campground has water and electric hookups, along with clean bathrooms. Lots of nature trails and outdoor exploring inside the campground.

Close to the beach

Buccaneer state park is a great campground with camper spots, primitive camping, playgrounds, and a pool/water park area. Some spots are located directly across from the beach with a Gulf view.

Can You Say Dull

Many, many RV's but they were permanent or month to month. A few areas for regular camping. We had a nice spot site #81 that was a pull through on sand. It was on a small creek where we could kayak, but the entire area took about 10 minutes.

Canoe country

Great spot for a float trip or canoe trip. Stop and fish during your trip. I have canoed this creek many times and it feels different even time. Great place to get cool and hangout.

Fun Summer Stop

Great place for a camp out. Fishing, splash pad, swimming, nature trails and even firework shows on July 4th and New Years.

Overnight stop

We stopped here for an overnight on our way to Florida. It is a Passport America park so we used our discount. The owner was super helpful and very nice. We got in late and he was very accomodating. The site was level. There are many residents in this park but they were very friendly. It is run down but you can tell it used to be very nice. Worth an overnight.

Free area along the Pearl River in Louisiana

Free, but as a courtesy please sign in and then out when you leave. Beautiful spot but no designated sites. Port a pots only and one water spigot. No frills, just free. We stayed here 2 nights. Swamp tour company very close by.

Close to Ocean Springs, Ms.

This is a popular park during the winter months as it is a National Park. Reserve early. No wifi, no laundry but clean bathrooms and shower. Electric and water at the campsites and a dump station is available. Close to town and all the good eats. Nice clean park.

Nice RV Park with Gulf Access.

Some concrete pads, some gravel pads, full hookups, pool, and laundry facilities. Quite, except for go-kart park next door until 10:00 pm. They provide coffee and danish-pastries each morning at 9am. Gulf and beach access right across the street. Close to all the casinos, great restaurants and beach boardwalk.

Wouldn’t go back

We chose this park because we were using state parks during the government shutdown, but this is really one of the worst parks we have been to. When we reserved the site on line, we noted we were a tent but when we arrived, there were signs everywhere saying no tents on sites. There were no rangers to check us in so we went directly to our site, this park appears to be a low income housing option for Gautier, families living out of a box truck. The bathrooms were old and mainly clean but no locks on any doors. There was plenty of hot water but the shower floor was slimy. Raccoons and squirrels everywhere including trying to get into tent.
