2 Parks near Waveland, Mississippi
Jun 2015 - $24.00
The campground is clean, however this is generally due to campers who care enough about themselves and the earth to clean up after themselves. I will speak on the bathhouse which is responsibility of the park staff.
The women's bathhouse is distasteful and dirty. The condition is not a one day or even one week compilation. Two sinks have only hot water...yet the water begins lukewarm and takes two to three minutes before it is warm. The sinks were stained from lack of cleanliness and covered in swarms of pests.
The bathroom stalls were acceptable. Not too dirty. The showers were the biggest disappointment, as the handicap shower had a broken shower handle which caused the water to come out in one center spray and leak all down the wall. The others have extremely poor water pressure and they also have broken shower heads, therefore it took nearly ten minutes to rinse shampoo and soap out. Also, in those ten minutes the water began heating up only near the end.
The most disturbing discovery was the handfuls of hair in the corners and in the drains. Although, I realize it is common for this to occur in a woman's shower, there is no question that it had been quite some time since the showers were cleaned, as the hair and soap puddles had accumulated mold. This does not happen in a day.
Camping is not a luxury vacation, true, yet it would be nice to have a clean environment to attend to hygiene.
Quite frankly, a family would thrive better having their own facilities to set up on their individual site. - truthseeker

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

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
