This is a membership resort at a cost of about $10k + $700/yr. While we stayed there free in exchange for a sales presentation, I think the value of a membership is low. I was disappointed overall and would not consider this a "resort." Sites are very close together so it feels like camping at a WalMart parking lot (the ones without sewer are grassier with more trees). We were surrounded by empty sites but if it had been full, it would have been very uncomfortable and little room to park our truck. None had grills or campfire rings (they will bring you a ring on request) and many didn't have picnic tables. There was no gate so basically no security. We never got the WiFi to work, after numerous requests (and we are both quite tech savvy). The "dog park" was so small we never used it but at least there was one. The location is pretty good for visiting NOLA but there are nicer parks that are closer. One big plus: the park was very quiet (even though it was fairly full). We camped at Abita Springs RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

I'm a camper newbie but compared to other parks we've stayed in or driven through, this was very nice. Quiet, shady, spaces not too close together, level, easy access, beautiful setting. A nice park for walking, biking, kayaking. As near as I could see, none of the sites had a bayou view. Maybe in the winter? We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Travel Trailer.
To bike into Ocean Springs, take the super-secret side entrance (bike & ped only) to avoid Hwy 90 and the long road into the park. Ride straight out of the campground into the large picnic area (don't take the right turn towards 90); it's a short distance on your left. This will take you through quiet neighborhoods. Turn left on Halstead and bike a short distance to a lovely public beach or use your phone to navigate to downtown. Ask the ranger if you can't find the side entrance.

We chose this campground because it had pullthru sites. It's a nice enough private campground if you're looking for amenities such as a pool, disk golf, etc. But I much prefer state park campgrounds in pretty settings with walking trails, biking, boating, etc. and much lower fees. It was mostly empty when we were there but if it had been full it would have been like parking in a parking lot with limited trees/shade/privacy. Just sort of blah. A pretty good drive to the grocery store and restaurants. The woman I dealt with was very helpful and nice. We camped at Bay Hide Away RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.
We really wanted to take our dog to a dog park where she could run around. We found a nice fenced park at Dunbar Ave & Julia St (I think). Not an official dog park but it worked great for us.
