    Located on the beach of the Gulf of Mexico and just 10 miles from downtown Bay Saint Louis, Buccaneer State Park is a year-round vacation spot rich in coastal beauty and recreational opportunities.

    The area now encompassed by the park was frequently visited and made a headquarters for hangouts by pirates in the 1700s, and figures prominently in mysterious tales of smuggling and buried treasure. Today Buccaneer State Park is best known for its exciting wave pool and jumbo-sized waterslides, which provides a safe yet exciting setting for summer rafting and body surfing, and as a winter retreat where the mild temperatures allow outdoor recreation year-round. Families can enjoy picnic areas to playgrounds to nature trails to tennis courts to frisbee golf. There's even a mini golf area (which is somewhat disappointing, but it's there).

    A great place for all ages!! I'd highly recommend stopping by the water park if you are looking for an afternoon adventure or setting up camp for an overnight stay. In summer months, keep in mind that tempertaures WILL get very high, so be prepared for heat and much sun, so bring sunscreen. There are many shaded areas, however, and this park isn't a mainstream waterworld so it doesn't get too crowded.

    Empty Beach

    This is the beach of Bay. St. Louis.
    It might not the most beautiful beach, but it is so surprisingly uncrowded, it feels like walking on your own private beach.
