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.

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!

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

This park was a great stop off I-10 as we headed west. We were staying for only a few nights. Full hookup sites were $28/night. We ended up upgrading to beach side sites that were $45/night, available on a first come first serve basis. Our view was great. All we had to do was cross the street to be on the beach. If you are traveling with a rig, I highly suggest you take Lakeshore in as the railroad crossing is flattest there.

Great place to stay and explore the coast. Clean sites and washrooms. You can hear a train at night. Early April the pool looked ready but not open. WiFi came in and out so wasn't reliable. The beach sites are not on the beach because the road is in the way. I liked our site at the back of the park in the trees.

Took my fiance here for her birthday. Haven't been here since before Katrina. It was better than I remembered! Had a wonderful time camping in the beach front spots! Can't recommend this place more!
