This is a very big park but it has definitely seen better days. There are lots of long-termers here. Overnighters park in a parking lot with utilities at the back. All sites are back-in for overnighters. Cable and Wi-Fi worked well. Bathhouse could use some upgrading. Doors on stalls would not lock and showers were scummy. This park was once a gem but it is on the decline. Friendly staff at gate check-in. A little slow on processing our check-in. OK for an overnight stop. Convenient to I-20. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Gal at check in was abrupt but she softened when she saw we were happy, friendly people. This was just an overnight stop so was given an overflow site with poorly located hook ups. Lots of other sites available but truck camper people are not usually given good sites even though we pay the same rate. Bathrooms/showers were nice and clean. Overall, it appeared to be a decent place. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Previous guest comment about ants still applies: might be best to keep your hook-ups off the ground. Staff a bit "ditzy": they don't answer email and they messed up our check-in. Found another RV in our spot, and we had to piddle around for 20 minutes until they gave us another spot. It is a big park, with lots of long-term campers and "live-aboards". One public toilet and a couple of showers for our end of the park. Very good wi-fi. Overall, we would probably return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our second time here, would stay again. There are a lot of ants, they need to spray. Was this way with our first stay also. They need speed bumps on main road to the pool. Cars speed very fast, 30 mph through out the park. It only a matter of time before a child gets hit by a speeding car. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a campground of extremes-could be an easy 10 campground with a little cleaning and maintenance. Old (permanent) sites have bad interior roads and broken pads. Several dirty, mold covered trailers. Other sites nice and tidy. Several area workers using as a base, but all were quiet. Pools clean, but not heated. Laundry functional, but room could use a cleaning and a few amenities. Water was bad even with an external and internal filters. You should not "see" water. We chose this campground to be close to Biloxi without the train noise, and it was perfect for that. Boat launch and cafe caused a lot of traffic on main road. Big grounds to walk around-our dog loved it. We will return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed in the overflow area as the park was full. However, the overflow lot faced the river and turned out to be a pretty site. Our friends live in Gautier and have a boat. There is a great pier and good access to put a boat in the water. The camp sites looked a little close together, but had good shade. We had a great time, and I would recommend the park (just not the overflow section). We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a beautiful campground, with a lot of grounds to walk and explore. The facilities are very good. The pools are large and well kept. We were assigned a cement pad and patio. The permanent type of campers were very friendly, as well as the staff. We will stop by again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The first word that comes to mind is "interesting". The 5 rating by Woodalls must be a mistake. The surrounding scenery is gorgeous: the Bayou and the trees. Nice docks and boating access. The sites are spacious and easily accessible (we have a 45 foot class A rig) but there are lots of older RV's here and the sites are not well kept. Overnight spots had good hook-ups and some had concrete pads. The facilities are all showing their age and wear. Looks more like an old fashioned camping resort than an RV Resort. Has two nice pools and a good cafe. For an overnight stay, this was acceptable, but I would not spend any length of time here. Wrong ambiance for me: just didn't feel comfortable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just stayed here one night, but seems like a nice place. Staff very friendly and the restaurant in the park serves a mean southern-style breakfast between 7-8 a.m. Quite a few permanent residents, but that didn't affect our stay. Beautiful location and the Wi-Fi worked well. Restroom and showers were dated and could use some sprucing up. Most sites graveled or concrete...we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is full of temporary workers, the RV sites are not kept up and the workers come and go all hours day and night with loud trucks. Not a good place to get a good nights sleep. This could be a excellent campground if it was kept up and maintained better. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I almost didn't stay at this park due to the previous reviews on this website, but I'm glad I did. The info on this site isn't exactly accurate. We found this park to be one of the best on the coast! They have 2 swimming pools, restaurant on site and friendly staff. I really enjoyed my stay at this park and will visit again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I agree with other ratings, Park needs updating and road repair. We stayed a week here. I only rated a 5 because of the pretty good pull thru site and free wireless that worked very well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Directions to site very poor, after locating the site and looking at it, did not stay, ask and received money back. Would not recommend to anyone. Might make a good fish camp. "We did not stay at this park". We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We arrived after dark, but the reception was still open and the receptionist was friendly. Directions to the sites are poor. We missed the turn to our site three times having to maneuver tight turns to get back to the front area. All of the roads off the main drag were really nothing more than small, narrow soft dirt paths. We almost got stuck in soft earth/wet dirt twice, once turning off the main road onto the trail to the site, when we finally found the trail, and once pulling off the dirt onto a concrete pull-through pad. We only stayed the night. Many of the campers there were clearly permanent residents, but from what we saw, those areas were clean. Power, water, sewer was easily accessible. They do not give Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Very disappointed in the shape of this place, may have been nice back in the day, but NOT now. We were one of the few non-FEMA trailers camping. We left early and will not ever be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We've been in worse, but were shocked at the run-down condition of this membership park, especially since it was affiliated with TT/NACO. Located in a gorgeous setting, the roads were narrow, uneven and rutted. Very cramped, unlevel sites and
shared utility posts made the place look like "Sanford & Son". No sewer hookups at most sites. Several decrepit trailers on site. Nice Lodge and modem access in Main Activity building with super bus trip to Gulfport--this saved the day as fas as our visit there. Too bad-the grounds are beautiful but the park is in dire need of a complete facelift. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Poorly maintain, dirty. Staff have poor attitude. We stayed for 6 months due to hospital needs and had to request our lawn to be mowed. Rules not enforced. Police called a number of times due to fighting and drunkenness by construction workers that live there. Website mis-leading, pond completely overgrown with weeds, no boat ramp, and alligators present at times. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park is not as advertised. There is one area, next to the road, with level pull-thru sites, basically a gravel parking lot. The rest of the park is dirt and nowhere near level sites. The pool was not open, and did not look like anything I would use. There is only one, not "pools" as advertised. The "fitness room" is a storeroom with 3 machines which do not work. One thing the park does have, which the ad doesn't mention, is a 4-wheeler track around the pond which you have to listen to 8 hours a day. There are no rules concerning pets, so dogs are penned/tied outside and no one picks up after them. Vehicles speed through park. Very disappointing. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A beautiful park with a huge dog pen. Miles of trails to hike, but some of the wooden walkways along the trails need work. Electric and water at the sites, which are fairly level. The dump station is easy to use and accessible on the way out. The park is close to town but quiet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have camped here several times a year for the last three years. We enjoy fishing in the area. This state park has been turned over to the city of Gautier to run and it is in bad need of maintenance. The shower floors in the men's side of the bathhouse are cracked and broken. They are clean, but leaking. The whole building will be damaged because of the water seeping through out. We will likely find some where else to camp on our next trip to the Coast. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is an old and tired park. The area itself is covered with unmarked trails, so without some sort of navigation, it is difficult to hike. The sites are okay, but many are not level. The "Dump Station" was overflowing with you know what. I've never seen such a sight in over a hundred parks. It's cheap. That's the only positive. It's owned by the state and run by the City of Gautier, according to the manager. It could use a good overhaul. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice, quiet park that just needs a little to boost its score a couple of points. Sites are private but many seem to have trails leading into them. The sites could use some grading and new gravel; I had a bit of trouble leveling. The dump station could use a cement slab in front of it. It, however, is peaceful, and the sites are private of each other. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A pretty park,in need of some TLC. Good place to stay for a few nights while visiting the Mississippi Sandhill Crane NWR. Be prepared for a few "semi-permanent" residents in rigs and tents that might raise an eyebrow. Nice biking trails. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park for a short term. Lots of spaces between sites, and lots of trees. Internal roads were gravel and not level. Corners somewhat tight for our Motor Home. It was beautifully peaceful there, in a rustic kind of a way. There is just not much to really do other than walk around. If you are looking to be by yourself in nature, this is the park for you. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed camping at this park. Plenty of buffer between sites for privacy. Sites were level. Bathrooms were clean and showers had good water pressure and hot water. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We enjoyed camping here. The sites are well spaced and offer more privacy than most parks. This park is a good location to camp and fish the Pascagoula River and Gulf. At the time we were there, the park's boat launch was closed due to work down stream. We used a nearby Gautier city park launch site. There was a public pier at the city park from which you can fish or catch crabs. Even though there is limited fishing access in the park, there are many public piers for fishing in the area. We will be back in August to try the fishing again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great rustic state park at a very reasonable price. Some pull-through sites are available for big rigs. Peaceful and clean, no road noise and subdued lighting. Only negative was the bath house ran out of hot water one day. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the kind of state park we really like, even as big rig motor homers. The roads are kind of old but smooth. The restrooms are relatively new and were spotless. The park is very quiet and scenic. It is close to Pascagoula and its sights. Nice stopover right off US 90. We would definitely stay here again, but check for reservations because it is small and popular. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We really liked this park. We prefer the more rustic "primitive camping in an RV", and we got that here. Not a lot of extra amenities, but we enjoyed it. The rangers were very nice and informative, and the nature-viewing was great. It was very private and quiet, inexpensive and convenient. We are going back soon! We camped here in a Motorhome.
It was what I was expecting in a state park. Gravel roads and sites. Fairly level. Lots of space between sites. Electricity and water in each site. It was very quiet while we were there. However, we will not be returning for 2 reasons. 1. The bugs. We literally were not able to sit outside because of gnat like critters biting us. Spraying OFF made no noticable difference. 2. We arrived on Thursday and the bathhouse was not cleaned or restocked until we finally caught someone in the office Saturday morning and complained. It was cleaned and refilled by that afternoon. If it had not been for the insects, we probably would return again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a fairly small park that had lots of room in January. We came without reservations. The campsites a fairly large, fairly level, very quiet, and shaded. The road to and through the campsite is gravel and the pads are gravel. There is one heated bathroom and shower facility. The road through the contact station is narrow with a tight curve but we had no problem getting through there in our 31' Class C pulling a toad. I used my bike a bit riding in the neighborhood and then over near Ocean Springs. Lots of good restaurants in the area. Our nightly rate was the senior discount. Apparently they have a $291 monthly rate because a neighbor was there for a month. We would come back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
