Big Biloxi Recreation Area

Area Status: Open
A camper is parked at a campsite along a winding paved road with a restroom in the background.

The Big Biloxi Recreation Area lies on the banks of the Big Biloxi River.  The area provides a cool, refreshing experience from cities nearby. Facilities include 25 camping units, all with utility hookups; a picnic area with a pavilion; bathhouse with hot showers; dump station; and a .5-mile nature trail. The river is an excellent place to fish for bream, bass and catfish.

Big Biloxi Recreation Area is open year-round unless weather conditions require the area to be closed. This is a fee area and the fee station is located just beyond the entrance gate. There is a camp host on duty; however, users should make sure that they have correct currency before arriving at the recreation area.  Please contact the De Soto Ranger District Office at 601-528-6180 for the current fees.
