Gulf Islands National Seashore, Davis Bayou Campground – Ocean Springs, MS

 

 

 

Davis Bayou Campground is located in Ocean Springs, MS on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The campground is adjacent to a saltwater marsh.  Hurricane Katrina was devastating to the campground.  A variety of trees, including live oaks show the ill effects of Katrina.  There are 52 sites and all sites have water and electricity including 50 amp service.  There is a central dump station and no sewer at the campsite.  Reservations are not accepted.  Campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The campground reopened last summer of 2007 recovering from Katrina.  FEMA trailers occupied the campground and have now been removed.  The campground is now in full operation but campers are unaware that it is open and non-FEMA occupied.  Camping fees are $16 and $8 (Sr.s) per night.  Cell phones work extremely well.  Only problem is no sewage hook-ups.  GreatOutdoorBlessings star rating out of 5 ***** is a  4****
