Very small Campground with no amenities except shower and bathroom. Most sites are small. The sites that sit along the woods are mostly shaded. The sites that sit in the middle (and accommodate larger rigs) have some shade but feel like a "fish bowl" being so close to others. There is very little "yard" for you to hang out without being in your neighbor's site. When we arrived ALL shower stalls were dead-bolted. After complaining, they unlocked one for the entire campground. We were told they couldn't open more due to serious malfunctions. Bikers from the trails constantly stop to use the bathrooms. Although, this Campground is tucked away from the congestion of the main Street in Ocean Springs, we got to wherever we needed quickly. For $22, it is a great location for restaurants and nearby Biloxi. There are alligators in the nearby Marsh but the Ranger said they don't like (eat) people. We were advised to keep our dogs off all trails and never allow them on the marsh shore line. There is a great Visitor Center and ask them to start the 15 minute movie. They are happy to do so. BTW, there is NO check in at the Campground. Go to the Visitor Center FIRST (do not turn into the Campground first) to check in. Follow the signs to the Visitor Center and not the Campground. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Small campground in a small section of the Gulf Islands National Seashore. Well kept, clean visitors center and campground. Nice trails. Quiet park. Sites are paved. Most seem pretty level. Ours had a good bit of downhill slope. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a national campground so saved $10/n from $20 rate with Senior Pass. This campground has no sewers, wifi or cable. There is a dump station. All sites are backins. We could get ABC and CBS on TV antenna but not much else. Campground is located close to Ocean Springs and 30 minutes from Biloxi casinos and beaches. We were there for the very nice Anderson Art and Craft Festival. Roads to/in campground are paved and sites are paved. There is a pad with a picnic table and a fire ring. Many sites are very short and not very level. My site could not fit both my 45 ft RV and tow and you can not park on the grass. Lots of trees so could not get satellite. Only a few sites probably can access satellite. The bathhouse is about as nice as you will find in any campground. There is a security gate but it was broken. Register at the campground not at the Welcome Center. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Motorhome.

The park itself is really nice with lots to do and lots of nature to be found. The campground itself was okay at best. While there were quite a few bigger rigs (ours is a 41' 5th wheel) it wasn't all that easy to maneuver thru the campground and back in. Once you pull out you have to go back in to toward the campsites to get to the dump site. As long as you are in a spot you can get in to its a fine campground. On a side note, the directions on the web site were confusing and it says to check in at the visitors center... which when we did they said that was not the case. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Love to come to this park. Very clean and well kept. Shopping very close by. Also TatoNuts doughnuts in downtown Ocean Springs for some of the best doughnuts made. The only thing that would make this place a 10 would be having sewer. Also there are several OTA channels to watch in TV. Also no WiFi We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

As stated in a previous review, site 47 sucks. We were assigned that site with a 38' 5er. Very crowded and walk out camper door into trees and bushes. Plus a big drop off coming down steps. No way to correct or move the camper as space is very limited. Definitely not enough room for a 38' 5er. On a good note, CG is very nice and quaint. Amenities are close by. Restrooms are clean. HOT showers, clean and private. Yes we would stay here again, just not site 47. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I was disappointed with site 47. Looking at the photo you can't tell but at the edge of the slab it's 7 to 8" ankle twisting drop off with very little room to walk. Small area behind with table and fire ring is odd, just avoid 47. There are other odd sites like this. Roads and slabs are good, but as others have said, trees need trimmed and tall rigs need to negotiate very carefully. Showers are as reported excellent. So, yes I had to go to the visitors center to register with straight in parking that you have to back out of. There is really nothing to do in the park, so bring your bicycles. Had a loud Harley at 10:30 then it was quiet, that was what I needed and for $11.00 what do you expect. Ocean springs has a nice little downtown area. There's a Walmart about 2 miles for last minute supplies, too. A plus is it's a short drive to / from I-10. AT&T worked but 4G a bit slow. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Travel Trailer.

As others have commented, head straight to the site Recreation.gov reserved for you and check in at the visitors center afterwards. By all means stay away from site 37, tough angle to back into and our door opened unto the street (table and ring behind us?!?). And everything you read about voracious flies/skeeters/noseeums/ants is understated. Still, the spacious sites and relaxed atmosphere of the campground makes it worthwhile. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We enjoyed neighboring Ocean Springs more than Biloxi or Gulfport. There's a bike trail to get there, though a couple of missing trail markers made the ride more interesting than necessary. If you have a kayak bring it, we would've liked to navigate the bayous but $100 to rent 2 kayaks for 4 hours from the outfit at the Ocean Springs port was too much.

This is a beautiful park with nice roads and paved sites. The park was very clean and neat. The Rangers manning the office were very friendly and helpful. The only problem we had was with the deer flies, they were terrible and curtailed our outdoor activities. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Davis Bayou is a beautiful place to stay. Small campground nicely set up. We camped in the big loop and were able to get our satellite dish on ground to get a signal. Sites are back-in and paved. Very clean bathrooms and showers. We would stay here again. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Downtown has some nice shops. Charred A Steak & Oyster House is a great restaurant. Between 2pm and 5:30 pm is "happy hour" with half off of drinks and oysters on the half shell!

Awesome...again. This is a smaller park set back from a busy and enjoyable area. The facilities are well kept and the local folks are all quite nice. Some of the sites are short so you have to book well in advance to get one for a long rig. The only strange part this trip was the check in process. The reception building is not used and you have to go to the Visitor Center to check in even though there is a Camp Host on site. It's not impossible, but I suggest you pre-dump and set up camp before taking a toad, et al, to the Visitor center. In fact, after we set up and headed over there, all we got was the gate code and, "Welcome, there's no ranger here right now." Easy for a repeat customer...would have been a little confusing had we pulled in at dusk for the first time. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed a week. We are in a 38' foot 5th wheel and had no trouble with the roads or trees entering park. We reserved a handicap site, even though we are not handicapped, because you are allowed to do so if it is the only site available. There was a picnic table and fire ring. It was a little odd because the spot next to us had their fire ring and picnic table directly behind our rv..set back a bit. It didn't bother us, but just to let you know. Our Verizon service was fairly good, but at times was a bit weak. We have a satellite dish set beside our camper and no problem with trees. The bathhouses were clean and the best showers We have ever used. They are individual showers with a seat, hooks for your clothes, hot water, and great pressure. Shopping is close by and Ocean Springs has a cute downtown. We would stay here again. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is a gem. Quiet, secluded but right next to residential Ocean Springs. Ocean Springs is a beautiful town with clean beaches. Biking in the area is fun. Low traffic and pretty streets in Ocean Springs. The park roads are also low traffic. The park's upland trails are a great addition to the National Seashore.

I agree with previous reviews. Just be careful when maneuvering your rig. Nice ranger, beautiful visitor center. Now, the downside. If you are staying here because you need a base of operation for a few days, then there is plenty to do around Biloxi. If you believe the Park is a destination in itself for beach activities and exploring, think again. National Seashore spreads for a hundred miles in both directions, very little of which touches this park. It is a location for a visitor center, which happens to have a campground. The place is pretty, has a lagoon and some trails, but is surrounded by residential areas. If you came for a week, don't have a smaller vehicle to get around with, and are expecting alot from the Park, you may be disappointed. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here 6 nights and enjoyed everything except the noseeums. Site was fairly narrow and asphalt. We are 37' long and didn't have issues getting around the main loop of the park. Our site was pretty level and had two large live oaks one on each side so if you don't have slide toppers they will require sweeping prior to leaving. There is only one dump station in the center of the park so you get practice navigating the loop. Utilities worked well and we were able to get several OTA tv channels. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Travel Trailer.
