“Excellent programs for families”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

We have visited this park many times, and used to visit often when our children were small and we lived in Ocean Springs. This park has very nice hiking trails, organized bike rides, and free programs run by the rangers at the park - especially nice for families with young children. Lots of critters for the young'ens to see. When my daughters were little they got a charge out of seeing the occasional alligator. This park offers a small campground, but we never camped here, as we only lived a few miles away.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The seashore was just beautiful. And the sunset was just lovely. Nice quiet time on the beach. Away from all the casinos. We came for the beach and it was clean and quiet.

“Great Park!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

My family and I frequent this place. There are a lot of trails that cut through the forests and the swamp areas. You always see loads of wildlife including fish, turtles, a multitude of different birds, and an occasional alligator. For an active an adventurous family with young children, this place is perfect.

“Lovely visitors center, beautiful views of the marsh/ bayou”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Enjoyed the movie and a short nature trail near the visitors center. Hoped to see an alligator but no such luck; it was too hot for them! Recommend a stop if you are in area.
