We drove through the Hollywood Casino campground a couple of weeks ago and it is is a nice campground. The casino is a smoking facility though. The only non smoking casino in the area is the Palace in Biloxi.

My son's stationed at Kessler. He id'ed Majestic Oaks as my kinda place. It was. But very tight quarters. We're hoping to make it out again this year. If we do we will likely give Boomtown a try. Went to Foley for a week & wound up staying 6 at 3 different parks. Just to mix it up! That whole area is just stunning to a first time visitor from So Cal. Loved the battleship. Great state (?) parks near it & Spanish Fort.

Davis Bayou

You might want to consider Davis Bayou Campground which is part of Gulf Shores National Seashore. You can reserve a site thru recreation.gov. It is a secluded quiet place in Ocean Springs, Ms (just east of Biloxi on US90). If you have the national park access pass (senior pass), camping fee is $11 per night for a 50 amp site. There is a dump station but no sewer at each site. The bathhouse is kept very clean with each shower having its own entrance from the outside. I just stayed there at the first of December and will go back if I am in that area. There is a great visitor center and lots of wildlife. Ten minute drive to Biloxi. Great park ranger and park host on site. If you like to walk, drive and park at the end of the US90 bridge to Biloxi and walk to Biloxi (Golden Nugget ) and back. That is a 5k walk/run with the beautiful view at the top of the bridge.

We drove through Davis Bayou Campground and in our opinion, the sites are short for a big RV and there are lots of low hanging branches. For that reason we would not take our 5th wheel there. It is a beautiful place though and the price is right if you have one of the Access Passes.

X2 on Davis Bayou. Stayed last year in a 39' fiver, no problems and close to Biloxi. We had a long site, probably around 80-90', believe it was site 33. Will be staying again this year in beginning of Feb as we head to Texas then Rockies.

Thanks for the tip on the low branches. I will avoid that park.

I run across low branches often, even in the parks itself. For the life of me I cannot figure out why the owners don't trim their trees and bushes.

That is why we carry some equipment to trim branches. Notice I said trim, not hack away. We ask if there is someone around to ask and we try to be respectful but we are not going to damage our rig. We were in a state park in Iowa and there were lots of low hanging trees. The head ranger gave us permission to trim as many trees as we wanted and they would dispose of the trimmings because they just did not have the budget or the manpower to do the job.
