RV Sites Temporarily Closed for Infrastructure Upgrade

We regret to inform you that our RV sites are temporarily closed due to an ongoing infrastructure upgrade. However, we have some good news! The RV sites will reopen even better on August 1st. We appreciate your patience during this improvement process.

For more information and updates, please visit our Shepard State Park website. Thank you for your understanding! ??️



Shepard State Park has 395 acres abounding with trees and wild flowers, bike and nature trails, 28 developed campsites, 1 bathhouse, tent camping and picnicking and 18-hole disc golf course. The park is nestled in the heart of Singing River (Pascagoula River) country, where legend has it that members of the Pascagoula Indian nation linked hands and walked into the Pascagoula River rather than be taken captive by hostile Indian tribes. The mournful death chant they sang as they walked earned the Pascagoula River the nickname “Singing River”. Tales of the heroic exploits of French and Spanish settlers and romantic legends of the Pascagoula and Biloxi Indians are standard fare in the scenic coastal area surrounding Shepard State Park. 

Please be advised that the bridge on Graveline Rd, just west of Shepard State Park is closed. If you are visiting the park, please follow directions from Hwy. 90 in Gautier to Oak St.
