This is a US Forest Service campground about 12 miles north of Gulfport , Mississippi but a whole world away. This is a peaceful wooded campground on the banks of the Big Biloxi River. Each campsite is large and level with lots of distance between you and your neighbor. It’s very easy to access off Hwy. 49 but seems very remote and secluded. They have a large rustic bathhouse that is clean and offers hot shot showers and flush toilets. A great place to rest and relax. They accept America the Beautiful discount passes.
Nice state park with full hook up sites with the exception of the sites across from the beach.
Price per night is $30. Each site has a picnic table and charcoal grill (with the exception of Royal Cay Loop). There is a pool, game room, water park and several bath houses, none of which were open due to COVID. The pool and water park both have extra fee's to use. They also have an 18 hole disc golf course and a playground for the kids.
We had planned to come here when we knew COVID may have an impact on the amenities and unfortunately it did not disappoint. Other than the playground (which due to days of rain was a mud bath) everything was closed. We were hoping at this point the water park would be open but understandably it is not.
It has rained a lot here and the park has so so drainage so although our site is a little higher, many others are not as fortunate. Our site also has a nice area behind it so if your looking for space go for site 80.
There is a beach about 2 miles up the road and we had a fantastic time there. We don’t tow a car so parading with 2 kid carriers and a wagon was an endeavor on our bikes it was worth it. There is a bike path of sorts that you can use to get there
We stayed here last week, our second time staying here. Nice state park with full hook up sites with the exception of the sites across from the beach.
Price per night is $30. Each site has a picnic table and charcoal grill (with the exception of Royal Cay Loop). Many are very sandy and slightly uneven. But then again this is directly across from the beach! There is a pool, game room, water park and several bath houses, none of which were open due to COVID. The pool and water park both have extra fee's to use. They also have an 18 hole disc golf course and a playground for the kids. Until next time….Happy Camping!
Free spot with drinking water. Vault toilet. A few actual spots with fire pits and tables, but lots of make shift spots around the lake. Gets really crowded during weekends but if you get there early, you can find a secluded spot.
When we took our kids camping when they were young, they were lucky if there was a small playground at the state parks where we camped; they would have loved this place which is exactly why we wouldn’t come near here during the summer months! (Funny how our perspective has changed now that our kids are grown!) For families, this could be a reasonably priced getaway: camping, playground, disc golf, pool, and waterpark - all in one place. Note, however, that there is an additional charge for both the pool and the waterpark.
This is a very large campground with 276 sites. I’m not sure if we lucked out (or if I was advised by another reviewer) but we reserved in the Treasure Cove loop, farthest from the entrance. This loop appeared to be the only one with relative privacy/separation between the sites. All the others looked like they had RVs stacked up on top of each other. Sites include a bbq, fire pit, and picnic table. There is also a “premium” section by the waterpark overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. These are right on the road, but the road did not seem to be heavily trafficked (this might be different in the summer months). The cost for these sites is higher and they are not reservable. Beware that some of these sites are on pavement with no separation (and no view of the Gulf), while others are on the grassy area with a view of the Gulf. Since they are not reservable, you would be able to select one to your liking. There is, however, zero shade in these sites and there are no tables or grills and they may be unavailable during certain times of the year. There is also a primitive loop and it is exactly that. No restrooms or other facilities (although you could walk to one of the other loops) and no visible delineation of sites.
The bathrooms are reasonable. We drove past miles and miles of white sandy beach before reaching this campground, so I was eagerly looking forward to a long walk on the beach but near the campground, I was disappointed that there was no beach; the water came right up to the road (although there was a concrete sidewalk of sorts). I am not sure if this is because of hurricane erosion or by design.
Because we were not here with kids in the summer to enjoy the waterpark, there was not much for us to do so we were happy we had only reserved one night here.
Buccaneer State Park was an awesome little place. This would be a vacation spot for the family! Nice campground, good size sites, some shaded. The facilities are newer and it’s well maintained. Nice little water park, nature trail and beach across the road.
I didn’t spend any time at the water park but we did go to the beach. Unfortunately I found out afterwards that there was a red algae warning in effect. No adverse effects, just check out the local information when traveling. The nature trail was worth a hike.
