Biloxi's best Mississippi Gulf coast

Biloxi’s Best Mississippi Gulf Coast RV Campgrounds

An RV trip along the Mississippi Gulf Coast needs to include a stop in Biloxi, a coastal town that has a surprising amount of things to do and see.

Biloxi was established in 1699 and is one of the oldest communities in the US. The cultural mix of generational residents, along with a rich maritime history, award-winning restaurants, miles of beachfront, and numerous casino resorts, give visitors plenty to do and experience.

Luckily, some great RV parks in Biloxi put you in the heart of the action, and I detail the best in this guide.

As a full-time RVer that visits Biloxi several times each year, I can give you the inside scoop on what each RV park has to offer guests and which local attractions and eateries you shouldn’t miss, so come along and find out more!

Why Visit Biloxi, Mississippi?

Biloxi sits directly along the Mississippi Gulf Coast and has many historical landmarks, cultural experiences, boating and fishing opportunities, miles of beachfront for walking or biking, and so much more.

While you can still see the effects of Hurricane Katrina on the Biloxi coastline years later, the fortitude of its residents to recover and rebuild bigger and better is another reason to support tourism to the area.

From Cruisin’ the Coast where you can see incredible vintage automobiles to authentic Mardi Gras celebrations to that eatery that serves up the best shrimp and grits you’ll ever taste, Biloxi is full of surprises!

Biloxi Beachfront

Biloxi Beaches

A Biloxi beach

The beach that stretches along the Biloxi Gulf Coast is white and beautiful, but be aware the water here is very shallow and appears darker than you may expect due to the silt that settles on the bottom. So grab a seat in the sand, enjoy the sun and gentle waves lapping on the shore, and stay put for some truly amazing sunsets bursting with rich reds and oranges.

For clear waters and fun beachcombing, take a trip to Ship Island 12 miles offshore. The barrier island is a part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore, and you can catch the ferry at Margaritaville in Biloxi or the Gulfport Small Craft Harbor.

Biloxi Beachfront Pathway

The paved walking, running, or biking path along the Biloxi coast is a wonderful way to enjoy the scenery and ocean breeze while getting some exercise. With 26 miles of pathway along scenic Beach Boulevard (US Hwy 90), you can easily reach many attractions from several of the RV parks I highlight below.

Biloxi Visitors Center

The visitors center is next to the Biloxi Lighthouse, where you can learn Biloxi history through a short movie and multi-media exhibits, pick up a souvenir or special gift made by local artisans and enjoy the views and ocean breezes from the second-story porch.

Cruisin’ the Coast Festival

If you love vintage cars and hot rods, a visit during Cruisin’ The Coast should be on your RVing plans. This traveling festival held in October is the biggest special event in Mississippi. Participants from around the US and other countries drive their showpieces across 30 miles of the Gulf Coast, with events in Biloxi and eight other coastal towns.

Biloxi Museums

You can find nine museums to explore in Biloxi. Two top choices are Beauvoir, the home of Jefferson Davis including the Presidential Library, the Confederate Museum, and Veterans Cemetery set within 51 acres that front the Gulf of Mexico.

For an architectural treat outside and intriguing sculptures, pottery, and paintings inside, the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art is a must-see. Master architect Frank Gehry designed this unusual campus of buildings that house artworks and offer classes, a gift shop, and behind-the-scenes history.

Biloxi Fishing and Boating

Biloxi fishing and boating

The Biloxi harbors are full of boat rentals and charters available for fishing trips, sunset or dolphin cruises, or even a unique Biloxi Shrimping Trip where you can learn by dropping nets and hauling in the catch.

You can also stop into any bait shop and ask about the nearest public access sites for boat ramps, marinas, and secret fishing holes around the Biloxi waterways.

Biloxi Casinos

There are eight casino resorts in Biloxi, most within a few miles of each other, making it fun to hop on the Casino Trolley to check them all out and maybe test your skill at the slots or gaming tables.

With top-rated dining options and famous entertainers in their theaters, you can enjoy a luxurious night out and be back in your RV campground within 30 minutes.

Most casinos offer RV parking (no overnight sleeping allowed), while Boomtown Casino has an RV park across the street that’s also a short walk from the IP Casino.

For beautiful seasonal displays, take a walk through the Beau Rivage Casino Resort concourse and lobby, where thousands of flowers and decorations will brighten anyone’s day.

Biloxi Restaurants

Local Biloxi cuisine is a mix of down-home comfort foods, cajun seasonings, lots of seafood, and chef-created specialties that will bring you back for more.

My personal favorites are McElroy’s Harbor House Seafood Restaurant in the Biloxi Small Craft Harbor, Adventurer’s Pub in downtown for a cold beer and fantastic calamari, and the legendary Mary Mahoney’s where upscale dining, southern charm, and mouth-watering entrees are found within one of the oldest homes in America.

Downtown Biloxi

City of Biloxi

Historic downtown Biloxi is centered around Howard Street on the city’s east side. You can follow the Historic Downtown Biloxi Walking Tour to learn the local history and stop in and support the small restaurants and shops that dot the area.

The Ground Zero Blues Club is where you’ll want to go to hear live music, with a continual line-up of performers to enjoy.

The downtown is also home to Skal Axe Throwing, a unique destination where you can enjoy a meal, and some drinks, then master the art of ax throwing with your friends.

And of course, no visit to Biloxi is complete without a stop at the Mardi Gras Museum, where costumes and memorabilia from the Mississippi Gulf Coast region are on display.

Biloxi Shopping

Biloxi is home to dozens of small shops and stores that sell local arts and crafts, as well as antiques, clothing, and one-of-a-kind jewelry and gifts.

Gallery 782 is a top choice if you want to find a unique item for a loved one or to commemorate your RV trip to Biloxi, and if you love to shop and enjoy a drink, The Threaded Cork Boutique & Wine Cafe is a charming place to visit.

The Finder’s Keepers Marketplace is another favorite of mine full of collectibles and treasures in the 12,000-square-foot indoor facility.

Lastly, for some kitschy beach souvenirs or t-shirts Sharkheads along the beach have thousands of square feet to browse. The last time I was there, the clerk brought out an album of pictures showing the devastation after Hurricane Katrina. The damage was a real eye-opener, as most national news outlets only focused on the destruction in New Orleans, while Biloxi took the brunt of the storm.

Best Mississippi Gulf Coast RV Campgrounds in Biloxi

Below are the best Biloxi Gulf Coast RV parks and campgrounds. Some are near the coastline, while others are more inland.

IMPORTANT NOTE: An active train track runs near the coast through Biloxi. Train horns will be heard day and night and can be very disruptive if you’re not used to such noises. I suggest running a fan or white-noise machine in your RV at night if you’re a light sleeper.

The Gulf Beach RV Resort is a newer campground with cement RV parking pads and patios, small grassy areas behind each campsite, and almost no trees or foliage, which may be a good or bad thing depending on your camping style.

The location allows for great ocean views from the pool and party deck, and having a restaurant on site is super convenient. In addition, with Beach Boulevard at the entrance, you can quickly access Biloxi attractions or walk across the street and spend a day at the beach.

SPECIAL NOTE: The park does not allow truck campers or pop-up campers at this time.

  • Propane
  • Outdoor fireplace
  • Sand volleyball court/horseshoes/cornhole
  • Free coffee and danish served in the lounge each morning
  • Wi-Fi

Cajun RV Park is located directly across Beach Boulevard from the beach. This park is one of my go-to Biloxi campgrounds for its great location, amount of RV campsites, and ease of maneuvering and parking your camper as the lots are spacious and there are few trees to avoid.

The campsites are no-frills, with grass or gravel parking pads and a paved patio. The landscaping is sparse, but what they do have is well-kept.

The park has a very nice pool and playground, making it a good choice for RVing families. Just outside the gate, you have the beach directly across the road, and you can walk to several restaurants and shops and the Treasure Bay Casino. The park offers a complimentary shuttle to the casino if you don’t want to walk.

Boomtown Biloxi RV Park

Location676 Bayview Avenue, Biloxi, MS
RV Sites Available50 FHU
Nightly Rate$37 – $57 (without casino comp)

Amenities:

  • 24-hour security
  • Across the street from Boomtown Casino
  • DirecTV Box (visit General Store inside Boomtown Casino to pick-up)
  • Wi-Fi

Boomtown Casino Biloxi RV Park is a secure parking lot RV park, with hookups and nothing else, not even a restroom. However, the park is kept clean, fits RVs up to 45-feet long, and there are grassy areas between each campsite which is nice if you’re a pet owner.

The park is part of Boomtown Casino and is also a short walk down from the Imperial Palace Casino Resort, giving you more dining and gaming options.

The Biloxi Casino Trolley stops outside the park if you want to travel to other casinos or check out the old downtown Biloxi district.

You make your reservation through a central phone line, but be aware the staff often doesn’t know specifics of the RV park, such as claiming the campsites only have electricity and water, when they do have sewer as well. Once you arrive, head over to the casino to check-in and earn comps toward your site fees by playing the machines.

Southern Comfort Camping Resort

Location1766 Beach Blvd, Biloxi, MS
RV Sites Available96 FHU with cable
Nightly Rate$50

Amenities:

  • Bathhouses
  • Rec room
  • Swimming pool and kiddie pool
  • Propane and ice
  • Laundry
  • Dog walk

Southern Comfort Camping Resort is a charming, older RV campground that provides a great home base to explore Biloxi. However, don’t let the word resort fool you into thinking this is anything but a basic RV park.

I’ve stayed here several times and suggest you book a campsite on Magnolia Circle (if your RV fits) where you’ll park underneath the old-growth live oaks. These campsites put you closer to the beach, beach pathway, trolley stop, Waffle House, and a bit further away from the train tracks and more crowded back section of the park.

The pool area is small, and the facilities are older and could use an upgrade, but all is functional, and the guests and staff here are always friendly. The kiddie pool is a nice touch if you have youngsters.

Majestic Oaks RV Resort

Location1750 Pass Rd, Biloxi, MS
RV Sites Available96 FHU with cable
Nightly Rate$69 – $79

Amenities:

  • Pool
  • Bathhouse
  • Propane
  • Concierge service
  • Casino shuttle service
  • Free coffee every day and free Saturday luncheons
  • Wi-Fi
  • Laundry

Majestic Oaks RV Resort is a gated park with lush landscaping to give it a tropical and more serene vibe. Southern hospitality is the focus of this family-owned resort, from the rocking chairs on the clubhouse porch to the concierge service.

Campsites are concrete and close together but long enough to handle a large fifth wheel with a tow vehicle or Class A motorcoach. Many old oaks around the property provide welcome shade to many campsites.

The park sits several blocks back from the beach but is well within easy reach of all Biloxi attractions. You can take the complimentary park shuttle to casinos or drive and park at one of the many beach pavilions that dot the Biloxi shoreline if you want to relax and watch the birds and boats or take a dip.

This RV resort is close to Keesler Air Force Base, which means you’ll get the occasional “sounds of freedom” as well as train whistles. However, this inconvenience doesn’t keep guests from giving this campground high ratings.

Parkers Landing RV & Camp

Location7577 E Oaklawn Road, Biloxi, MS
RV Sites Available130 FHU
Nightly Rate$35 – $50

Amenities:

  • Restrooms and hot showers
  • Laundry
  • Boat ramp with access to Biloxi River
  • Pier
  • Pool
  • Propane
  • Wi-Fi
  • Camp store

Parker Landing RV Park is another campground away from the coastline, but all the Biloxi attractions are only a few miles away. The park’s facilities are always clean, and the staff is friendly.

The campsites have a cement parking pad and patio, but the access roads need some work. The entire park is older than others on this list, but the rates are reasonable, and the campsites along the creek are peaceful.

The park gives guests a boat ramp into Parker Creek with Biloxi River access for pleasure boating or fishing excursions.

This park is across the street from Camping World and not far from I-10, which is convenient if you need RV supplies or repairs during your stay or plan to explore more of the coastal region outside of Biloxi. If you want an easy-going fish camp-style RV park, this may be the place for you.

Final Thoughts

Biloxi is a great town full of friendly people, cultural experiences, fun activities, special events, and miles of beach for you to enjoy.

RVing the Mississippi Gulf Coast needs to include a stop in Biloxi, whether you choose an RV park full of amenities near the beach or a more laid-back campground more central to the town.

I hope you give Biloxi a try on your next RV trip, and if you’re like me, you’ll find it a destination you’ll look forward to returning to again and again!
