A Family Adventure

Located in the heart of Waveland, Buccaneer State Park is the perfect getaway for families with an adventurous heart for the outdoors. With 276 premium campsites surrounded by large moss-draped oaks, marshlands, and the Gulf, it’s an invitation to savor the best nature has to offer.

Whether it’s smores around a campfire, a pleasant walk along a historic nature trail, or a game of disc golf, Buccaneer State Park offers state-of-the-art facilities in a beautifully restored recreational environment. It’s a one-stop-shop type of deal where families can enjoy a true camping experience, along with some great amenity perks set within 400 acres of green space that borders the Gulf of Mexico.

One great feature that’s sure to provide tons of fun for all ages is the half-million gallon wave pool that alternates between eight different wave patterns. The park also has concessions and a food court, picnic area, two water slides, a playground, and a Par 3, 18-hole disc golf course that incorporates open fairways and obstacles throughout the natural setting.

A highlight of Buccaneer State Park is “Pirate’s Alley Nature Trail” — a 1.8 mile, self-guided trail that showcases many species of oaks, magnolia, pines, and a variety of indigenous plants and animals of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

End your family fun day with a kid-friendly meal in Waveland and savor the memories you have made.
