Review – Davis Bayou Campground

During our recent spring break road trip, we camped at the  Davis Bayou campground in Ocean Springs Mississippi. This campground is part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore which is managed by the National Park Service.

The park had alligator viewing areas and a lot of places for birdwatching. And the lady at the visitor center was very nice and had lots of information and brochures about what to do in the area. You probably won’t run out of activities here.

We tent camped at a water and electric site. The site was in the middle of the loop and was extremely spacious. We had plenty of room for our two tents. We could have easily pitched two more. The site had a fire pit with a grill and a picnic table.

The shower house was old, but was kept clean.  This was a very quite campsite.

BUGS! This campsite was full of bugs. Not just a few bugs. We couldn’t be out our tents even a minute or two before the biting started.  Even the bug spray didn’t seem to deter them.  We weren’t that low, but the dense woods surrounding us seemed to keep the breeze from blowing them away.

So overall, this was a good campground because of the location and all of the attractions in the area, but the bugs were a real annoyance.
