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 hook ups; a picnic area with a pavilion; bath house with hot showers; dump station; and a 1/2-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.
