Nice park, located across the street from the gulf. Office Staff was friendly enough and helpful. Sites are not always level. If trains bother you, don't stay in Treasure Cove. There were hardly any whistles, but they come by the park very fast and literally shake your RV. I'm sure you can hear and feel them elsewhere, but Treasure Cove appears to be closest point to tracks. Bathhouses were clean and heated. Nice walking trail in park; signage isn't very good, but nice overlook to watch waterfowl. Great park for bicycling. Park stayed quiet, even when full on the weekend. Our picnic table was broken so only one side useable. The camp store was not open when we were there, nor was the water park. Follow the directions on the parks website to get in on Lakeshore Drive. GPS might lead you down Loor St or Waveland St, both of which have very humped railroad crossings. Casino is a few miles down the road. We would probably consider a stay here again if in the area. - Richard & Samme Buck
Like to spend a few days here when we pass through. Well spaced paved full hookup sites. Do have to be choosey if in a big rig. Flat part of the paving on sites can be short leaving you with leveling problems. Prefer to be here in cooler months, which is also when it is less crowded. Pool and waterpark are available for $$ but we have never wanted to use them. Plenty to do in the area and our dog loves the beaches. We would be regulars if we lived in the area. - Grumpier99
Buccaneer State Park is southwest of Waveland, Miss., and is right on the Gulf of Mexico.
Hurricane Katrina destroyed the park and after a long reconstruction it reopened in November 2013. In addition to the 70 waterfront campsites it also has 206 full hookup sites complete with trash pickup, water park, store, big wading pool and day-use picnic areas. The only thing missing is Wi-Fi.
Although our campsite was described as a 51-foot site the paved pad stopped about 36 feet from the roadway with a steep drop-off behind. No problem for us but it might be for a longer rig. Also there?s an active railroad track along the north end of the park. - User3322
We were going to stay here, had reservations, but cancled them after seeing the park. There is no facilities at all, none, nada, zip, zero. The public can and do, park in the camp ground. The beach is right there, but the public is too. We felt that there would be no privacy or security for our rig. We wanted to camp on the beach, but did not want to risk everything. - hoefler
Loved the ocean view. There are two phases going on. If you want all concrete pads, patio, picnic table bbq pit, pick Phase I. Two rows in Phase I, sites 1-12 (front, $35,); sites 13-24 (back row, $25). Concrete road between the sites. Phase II has sites 25-35, $30 with concrete pads and only one row with no tables, bbq pit or patio with shell and gravel road into that section. Some tables, bbq pit and trash receptacle spaced out across from sites near two-lane road from beach. We had 25 and 26 which were good sites except for the loud playing music from the neighbors till about 3 am each night and amplified during the day where you can hear it all the way to the beach. We love music, but there should be a quiet time, which the security guard was not concerned about since the park didn't enforce anything. You can pretty much do what you want there. No cable, no Wi-Fi. No bathhouse, no playgrounds. Basic park. However, we did not have any problems with bugs except for horseflies, which bug spray easily took care of. Non in camper as previous reviewers. Wind from the beach was minimal; canopy held well. Shuttle 24 hours to and from casino. We stayed 3 nights and had one night comped after signing up for players card. Casino has reasonable restaurants, except for buffet which is outrageously priced as in all casinos. Have to go into town for shopping. All sites are back ins. Call ahead for reservations as they do fill up during a holiday. Go to your site when you get there, call the casino and the security guard comes out and registers you. Employees are all very nice, except they should have some rules about some campers overtaking the park. Very beautiful two Catholic Churches along the beach, St. Clare's and Our Lady of the Gulf. - resume
Stayed here to have a beach front RV site and was not disappointed. The RV sites are bare and do not offer bathrooms, showers or trees/shade...but the view is amazing. A two lane road is all that separates you from the beach. The road noise/intrusion is minimum-moderate and may be more in the summer. We paid an extra $10 to have beach front site but would have been OK with non-beach front. They had good views as well. The price was high for no facilities but we went to the casino and signed up for a new players card & they comp'd us a night. No gambling was required. Would definitely stay here again for a beach vacation. - IronMan Can
