This is a good value for an overnight stay. We opted to stay here for one night on our way to Florida. It is conveniently located near the interstate. We didn't find that traffic noise was an issue as some others have stated. However, the poor drainage was a negative. We opted to leave the RV hooked up to the truck, and utilize Lyft to bring us to and from the nearby outlet mall. We camped at Campgrounds of the South in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park. Only complaint is the size of the concrete parking pads and street width. Pads are narrow and not long enough for 40' Motorhome and tow car to both fit. Had to disconnect. Parked car on empty site next to us, luckily there was empty spots, otherwise no close place to park car. MH steps extended into grass, which was wet and had a muddy area. Streets are narrow and uneven. Price was excellent thank goodness. Good place for a overnight stay. 1 shower head in ladies bathhouse was broken. No hand soap at sinks. Could not find dumpster to put trash in. We camped at Campgrounds of the South in a Motorhome.

Great place for an overnight. Easy to get to off highway and lots of stores and places to eat. Level concrete pad. No amenities but for an overnight we will do again. Not many people there but felt safe and nice rigs stopping for night. We camped at Campgrounds of the South in a Motorhome.

Friendly check in assistance. This was a good over night stop for us. Near freeway so highway noise, but with A/C and normal white noise fan we use it was not a disruption to our sleep. Park is in need of restroom upgrade but it was acceptable to use. Would use it as an over night stop again. We camped at Campgrounds of the South in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at this park for one night when we had the need for an unexpected stay due to a warranty repair on our tow vehicle. It served that purpose well. Check in was friendly. I agree with several other reviewers. The concrete pads are somewhat cracked and the site does have drainage issues, evidenced by standing water on the roadways. The sites themselves are elevated above the roads, so I did not see the problem with them. The park is very near Interstate 10, so the noise is constant. However, with a fan or air conditioner running, I would consider it "white noise" which sort of fades into the background. I might consider staying here again if need be. My impression on staying in the immediate Gulfport or Biloxi is that you stay near the interstate or near the railroad tracks at the private RV parks. We camped at Campgrounds of the South in a Fifth Wheel.

Just off I-10....traffic could be a problem if you like quiet, and railroad nearby. Located behind a large mall. Good price and close to what we wanted to see. Campground has cement pads which are old, but level. We camped at Campgrounds of the South in a Motorhome.

Located just off I-10 north of Gulfport, MS, this is an average RV park except that the owner/manager is super nice and very welcoming. There are asphalt driveways and concrete site pads, but many of the pads are a bit broken and cracked. We were there during a rainy period and there was a lot of standing water in the driveways. We had a long pull through site with full hookups, no patio or picnic table. The bathrooms are in rough shape and not very clean. If you are a light sleeper you may be bothered by the traffic noise from I-10 nearby. However, it was convenient for a brief stop and the price is right. We paid $24 per night with Good Sam discount. We camped at Campgrounds of the South in a Motorhome.

VERY noisey. Poorly drained, $100 deposit for cable. Pads, old cracked concrete, but fairly level. Airport near by and I 10 directly adjacent. Clean and cheap. Wifi is so poor you won't use it. We camped at Campgrounds of the South in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Roads are tight. I probably wouldn't stay here again. I'm worth another $10. For a quiet, grassy, dry campground. It's not terrible and if funds are tight I understand, but to be honest , I'd rather spend more, get better. With that said, it clean and cheap.

The park is clean and well maintained. There are not a lot of amenities. No cable, no pool, no tables, no fire ring, no dog walking area, no . . . well, nothing. There is Wi-Fi, although I was unable to connect. The water is good at 155 ppm. TV reception is good, cell service excellent, and there are not enough trees to block satellite reception. Campgrounds of the South is an easy on and off both Route 10 and 49 making it very convenient for an overnight stop. There are tradeoffs as the traffic noise is fierce. Well, that's the first impression. Then you hear the truck's exhaust brakes - more impressive. Soon, you will discover that the Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport is just a mile away. Depending on which way the planes are taking off and landing, the noise may hit a new high. Next, you'll find that Keesler Air Force Base is less than ten miles east. Now those planes make a lot of noise in defense of our country. And, the military jets may use the Gulfport airport too. After a while, I just tuned it all out and slept well. We would consider stopping here again at the Passport America price. We camped at Campgrounds of the South in a Motorhome.

We went after a rain, and found out that the interior roads are the drainage. Water everywhere, and all the grass was soggy. Roads are tight, with little turning room. All sites have concrete pads, most of them cracked. No picnic tables or fire pits. The park is cash only, no credit cards. One big negative....the only trash is all the way in the back of the park. Not a place we'd stay again. We camped at Campgrounds of the South in a Fifth Wheel.

I stayed here for 6 months for work. I chose this place for the convenience of shopping and being away from the beach due to the amount of sand my coworkers said they had to sweep out of their campers everyday. There is everything you may need within 1 mile of the place. It is an older campground without trees in the way of pointing your satellite dish. The grass was mowed regularly It is located close to I-10. As far as the road noise from the interstate it is not that bad. You can hear some of the planes taking off but they do not pass overhead. As for the trains, the railroad is about 4 miles south of the place and you can barely hear it. The owner is not in the office all day, but there is a host camper to help with whatever you may need. The laundry is on the back side of the office and well kept up. The whole time i was there I did not see any stray pets or animals. I would not want to stay anywhere else in the Gulfport area. We camped at Campgrounds of the South in a Fifth Wheel.

I, like most, read the reviews before coming here. I first had some questions because several were not very good. I am glad we did not depend on any of the bad reviews. We were just going to stay for one week, that has turned in to two so far at $140 per wk. Sites are close but not as close as some I have been in. Paved streets, concrete slabs, and I have 40 ft motorhome with no problem. Close to very good restaurants, just a couple miles from the beach.

I have site 102 and yes it is close to Interstate, but with AC running we never hear anything. May stay another week, but regardless when in this area we will return to "Campgrounds of the South." We camped at Campgrounds of the South in a Motorhome.

We stayed for 7 days here. WiFi was not good, spotty. Also for cable they gave you a box to hook up. I could never get ours to work, so carried back to office. We were to leave Thursday but our drive through site was flooded in by a severe storm and we were not able to leave for all the flooding and mud.

Not close to the beaches or casinos. We camped at Campgrounds of the South in a Fifth Wheel.
