Buccaneer State Park is southwest of Waveland, Miss., and is right on the Gulf of Mexico.
Watch for the sign along Beach Blvd.
The park has 70 waterfront w/e campsites.
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 FHU sites complete with trash pickup, waterpark, store, big wading pool and day-use picnic areas. The only thing missing is wifi.
There’s not much shade in the park due to Katrina.
The store and laundry facility is built to withstand another hurricane, as are all the other buildings in the park.
The pool is three and a half feet deep and would be nice to float around in summertime.
The Barge backed into our campsite.
Although our campsite was described as a 51-foot site the paved pad stopped about 36 feet from the roadway with a steep dropoff 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.
WARNING – The railroad grade crossing on Clermont Rd. approaching the park has been built up and a longer or lower rig than ours may bottom out; there’s a warning sign on that road. The crossing on Lakeshore Rd. is level.
