2 Parks near Waveland, Mississippi
Apr 2015 - $24.00
This is a very large state park and all sites are full hook up, excluding the water front sites which are water and elec. only. All sites have grill and table with trash can that are emptied each day. The staff are all very friendly and rangers patrol all hours. Restrooms are located at each loop and are large and clean. Store was not open during our stay but is located in same building as washer and dryers. Follow directions on their website into park as railroad crossings are raised and could be a problem with dragging your unit while crossing. - roaming around

Park is right across the street from the water coast, it is very clean, well kept and nice facilities. The lots are nice, there are some areas that are out in the open where everyone can see everyone, and then there are areas that are more secluded, where there is a lot of privacy. I thought it was a lovely park, there are walking trails as well and a laundry facility. - Mickimini

Most important you have to make Reservations at www.reserveamerica.com or walk up for beach sites.
Going to a Volkswagen car show in nearby Biloxi and opted to camp which worked out great as others from the show were camping as well and we got to see their cars again! We made reservations well in advance, and arrived after the office closed. We called ahead and they told us that would not be a problem. Upon arrival the gates were open and there was a sign on the window stating if you had one of the camp sites listed to proceed to your site and get your pass in the morning. Park is really nice and 99% new since it was destroyed by Katrina. Site was right next to the bath house but noise levels were minimum. I was worried about the gates being open all night and saw people coming and going, this is nothing to be worried about as it was all fellow campers. Park rangers drive the camp ground 24 hours a day which made it feel really safe.All sites in the campground have full hook ups. The beach sites which again are available by walk up only just have water and electric but there is a dump station by the camp ground entrance.
Backing into the site my wife said seemed to be a challenge because it was dark(all sites are back in). I backed in no problem but couldn't get the trailer exactly how I wanted it. Pedestal connections for water/electric/sewer were each less then 10' away.
Another welcoming thing was to see how active and friendly everyone was. People out walking, riding bikes and generally enjoying the park.
If you are in the campground and want to go to the beach you have about a 5 minute walk. The day use area is separate from the camp ground but was closed during our entire stay. I was going to ask why but forgot to. For the price and what you get this park is a good value on the gulf coast. - Nizzy

This site has mixed reviews. There are full hookups at every site, but no real amenities otherwise. The main reason to stay is the view. The sites look out over the gulf. We loved the location and the value. We stayed on an end site in Phase 2 (site 25 I believe). We were the only ones in phase 2 for a couple of nights and we worried about safety, but luckily no one messed with us. The Silver Slipper web site really gives very little information and does not have an good pictures. Google maps "street view" can show you the whole thing in great detail though. - Echelon73

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
