This is truly a hidden gem. It is a quiet, shady, clean and peaceful park. Good interior road leading to nice paved sites. It is somewhat dated, and not all sites are lazer level. But it is hard to beat for the money. When making reservations pay attention to site length because some are quiet short. It very convenient to shopping, restaurants and casinos. My "8" rating would be "9" if is had sewage and site 19 has a drop of form the trailer steps to the patio that demanded caution. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is part of Gulf Islands National Seashore's Davis Bayou Unit. Environment is a coastal oak, pine, hickory, and magnolia forest interspersed with salt marsh bayous. Easy check-in with a friendly NPS ranger. Our site was in the spur off of the loop and overlooked a bayou (albeit through the trees). Clean and well kept. No wooded privacy between sites, very open. The loop sites are nearly all sun or marginally partial shade. More shady on the spur. All sites asphalt paved with picnic table and fire ring. The site sloped to the rear and was off lateral by about 4 inches, so levelers may be necessary. Electric and water worked fine. Dump station modern, oddly right in the middle of the campground near an intersection. DTV provided basic PBS, CBS, ABC and was limited to about 17 channels. Many places to walk and trails to hike. I enjoyed the CCC trail with its great plant diversity and history. Blue crabs on the dock near the visitor center were bountiful. Park is a popular place for local residents as well as tourists. The weekend crowd was a bit noisy, and there had to be one camper who just couldn't bear to put his dog on a leash, which was a bit of a nuisance. Once the weekend crowd left, the place was really quiet. Although other reviewers seem to have observed many open sites without reservations, the CG was packed each night we were there and I cannot imagine not having reservations. We will camp here again. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Downtown Ocean Springs is the place to be for eateries, pubs, and art. Rouses Grocery just outside the park gate to the west on U.S. 90 is a regional Louisiana specialty grocery store that is a must to visit for local Cajun foods. No-See-Ums (salt marsh midges) can be pesky at times, so repellent should be on hand.

It's a 15 minute or so drive south of the interstate at Ocean Springs, MS to this nice campground. The sites are water/electric only with good roads and paved sites. We received a friendly welcome and, when we needed to change sites, the ranger helped us out, putting us in a more suitable site. Several of the sites on the parameter (but not all) on the main loop have a considerable slope front to rear. It was highly unlikely that we would have gotten the 5th wheel level in our original site, even with the landing gear as short as possible. We were allowed to move to a more suitable spot. The campground, itself, is clean and pretty and the park beyond the campground boasts a beautiful Welcome Center and lots of nicely developed hiking trails. We had some issues with biting gnats (no-see-ums) which are a bit of a nuisance. All in all, we think this is a good stop along I10 especially if you are good with water/electric only and can avoid the problem sites. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Great value and good location. Secluded and quiet but good shopping and sites within 5-10 miles. Small campground with active camp host. Excellent showers. Clean! Clean bathrooms. Very appreciated. Lots of space to walk and bike in the park. No wifi but good over the air tv. The sites themselves are only drawback. Too narrow and short for our 40' toyhauler and tow dually to fit. Dirt around narrow asphalt pad that I couldn't keep out of rv. Other than that. Great small basic clean and safe campground. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here while visiting friends in the area. Nice campground on the National Seashore, with a few trails. Convenient for visiting Ocean Springs or Biloxi. Our site was long enough, but a very large tree right on the edge of the pad made backing in, and lining up our slide a real challenge. While we would stay here again, I wouldn't put a large RV in site 4 again. Staff and volunteers at the CG were nice and helpful. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

They put us in site 49. We have a 40 class A. The tarred pavement is aweful. A large eruption and deep well kept up from pulling all the way in to site. Therefore you cannot open yout awning because you are in between two very large oak trees. This site needs to be ripped up and leveled and replaced. Very disappointed after driving 5 hours to get here. All other sites are cement and taken. You can not choose your site they assign them as you book. They know we are 40 foot. Maybe rangers and camp host should light a fire up there bottoms and maintain there sites. Sorry Not A Happy Camper. Also no place the car because of limited ate space due to messed up site. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

Excellent, well maintained facilities. The showers were the best I have seen, anywhere. Large, clean, private, with great pressure and temperature. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The visitors center was very informative, and the nature trails appeared to be well maintained. Enjoyed watching the big alligator, birds and turtles. Like most National Parks, there isn't a sewer connection, and you can't discharge the grey water on the grass, but the dump site is convenient, and easily accessed. Our site (44) was level, and easy to back into. It could have been a little wider, to accommodate a door mat, but it worked OK. The nightly fee of $11.00 is with the Golden Age Passport. We will definitely be back. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A really nice, quiet and well kept campground. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We had reserved a particular site but another site we liked better was open and the camp host allowed us to change after check in. The showers and bathroom were very clean and air conditioned. Showers were also private as each one had its own locking door with entry from the outside.

Some of the sites are not very long for the larger RVs and it would be nice if the pads were a little wider to allow for an outside mat. A laundry facility would be great also. A few overhanging branches and some tight areas to maneuver. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is very compact and although there were a number of large rigs in the campground during our 2 night mid-week stay, pay attention to the site lengths when reserving a space; some are quite short. Also, the campground was full both nights we were there, so reservations are advised. Sites were back-in, electric and water, paved and fairly level, and could easily be corrected. Large rigs should avoid heading around the tight turnaround by site 16, as it's tight. Be mindful of the low hanging branches. Showers have individual doors and are very private. The National Seashore intake person came around in the early evening to make sure everything was OK with our stay, a very nice touch. The only demerit for the place was the bunch of cigarette butts in the fire ring. The rate shown reflects the 50% off with the federal senior pass. This is the second time we've stayed here and will always return here when in the area. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Motorhome.
