Great Camping Awaits At Gulf Islands National Seashore, MS

Gulf Islands National Seashore in Mississippi is just one of many nice campgrounds I have found during my years of RVing.

It's a lovely and convenient place to camp and is also inexpensive, especially if you have a senior citizen National Park Pass.

You can find Gulf Islands National Seashore on US90 just a few miles east of the new, beautiful bridge that connects Ocean Springs to Biloxi, MS.

There aren't many signs, so you have to pay attention when trying to find it.

The drive into the campground is about two miles and takes you through beautiful forest, marshlands, picnic and fishing areas.

The park has good amenities and is safe, well located and beautifully maintained.

The Details


Gulf Islands National Seashore offers


  • large sites
  • 50 amp electric,
  • water
  • a dump station
  • shower and bathroom facilities
  • hiking trails
  • a small marina


RV travelers can set up camp and stay as long as 14 days per visit.

Since the campground is usually fairly empty, travelers can easily find campsites, even if they arrive late in the day.

The cost is $26 per night, but if you have a National Park Pass you pay $13.  

This is pretty good considering that the local campgrounds all charge upwards of $35 per night.

Even though it’s inexpensive, it gives campers a beautiful place to stay and easy access to the beautiful Biloxi/Gulfport casino resort area.


A Safe Place To Camp


One thing I really like about camping at this RV park is that it is safe.

There is a small ranger station at the entrance to the camping area, and a park ranger patrols the area regularly.

In addition, a campground host is always on the grounds to give help when it is needed.

One thing to be careful of at Gulf Islands National Seashore is the dumpster area.

When the fishing is good, fishermen often dump fish entrails into the dumpsters. This creates a horrid smell.

You’d be wise to pick a spot that is as far away from this area as possible during fishing season so that you can fully enjoy your visit.
