Buccaneer State Park

1150 South Beach Boulevard

Located on the beach in Waveland, Buccaneer is in a natural setting of large moss-draped oaks, marshlands and the Gulf of Mexico. Use of this land was first recorded in history in the late 1700's when Jean Lafitte and his followers were active in smuggling and pirating along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The French Buccaneer, Lafitte, inhabited the old Pirate House located a short distance from what is now the park. The park site, also known as Jackson's Ridge, was used as a base of military operations by Andrew Jackson during the Battle of New Orleans. Jackson later returned to this area and built a house on land that is now Buccaneer State Park.

Nice park and campsites, Dirty dirty bathrooms, no AC in bathhouses. Rude staff. Wintnessed them running people off from picnicking under an unoccupied pavilion. You must bring your own trash to dumpster when camping. Charge per person to use the small pool in rear of park even though you are camping. Pool is in much need of repair and dirty. No security at night. Gates are left open at night but like Fort Knox during the day. They charge $4 a car to get in during the day. Convenient to town. Could be a great place with just a few changes.

Nice park, sewer connection a little different with it on a 45° slant in concrete 6" off the ground. Great price and nice playground for the kids. Water park a little pricey for two slides and a wave pool ($19 each)

We are here now. We love the park! Great site with full hook-ups. Almost perfectly level asphalt site. Very large site and not close to your neighbor. The beach is right across the road. Extremely nice bathhouses which look almost new. One VERY IMPORTANT note!!!! Do NOT come the way GPS says!!! There is a railroad crossing that big rigs CANNOT navigate!!!! I have a small travel trailer and almost didn't make it over. Go as if going to Silver Slipper Casino! DO NOT GO ON IOOR STREET!!! Other than that, super place!

Nice park. Third time we have been here. This time, kids out of school and roaming park with minimal or no supervision. On and off road without looking. Also, minimal water pressure at our site(#44). Probably our last time.

Clean park, well maintained, cheap prices, with plenty of recreational activities within walking distance for most families. Campground staff setup very fun events for holidays such as Halloween, and Easter which I have attended. I'm sure there are others I haven't attended yet but would go to any with an easy mind knowing it would probably be a great time. There is bathrooms at every round about, a community swimming pool in the summer, a water park in the summer just outside the campground, as well as a free well maintained frisbee golf course and hiking trail. Did I mention it all within walking distance for most to the beach!!!! Very cool. I give this campground 5 stars for RV and pull behind campers. But only 4 stars for the lack of primitive camping locations. I
