We spent two beautiful weeks at Biloxi Bay RV Resort at the end of February. If you are traveling with your pup, we highly recommend this dog-friendly resort. If you don’t have a pup in your life, you will still have a great time!
We happened to be here over Mardi Gras. I wish I could say I planned it that way, but I had no idea when we booked the site. The weekend of Mardi Gras (it’s a whole week in Mississippi – the kids are off school) the resort was pretty full. It didn’t get rowdy, just pleasantly crowded. Everyone was respectful and kind.
Most sites are paved with a concrete patio and are easy to access, with robust hookups. There are a few sites in the back that are still gravel and those are well kept and clean.
Biloxi Bay has a huge pavilion/bar area that is right next to the walk in pool and hot tub and right along the private beach. They have a food truck that is open on the weekends and while we did not eat there, we hear the food is good.
The pavilion is open 24 hours a day and is DOG FRIENDLY! They staff and open the bar on the weekends at this time of the year.
Even the beach is DOG FRIENDLY!
We went to the parade in nearby D’Iberville. The resort had a float in the parade and several of the campers were on hand to throw beads to the crowd. It was a fun, family friendly event.
And the dog park is large enough for the pups to run their little hearts out. We met the nicest people in the dog park.
Biloxi Bay has built a lazy river and is in the process of building a small water park/pad that should be open in the next few months. Pickle ball courts are coming too.
The laundry is small and FREE, so it was hard to get into, but there is a huge laundromat just down the road. (Check out Cheeta Laundromat for the fastest washers and dryers I have ever used).
On Sundays they have a pot luck. The resort provides the simple main course and everyone brings a side dish or dessert. We were lucky enough to be able to try a Jack Daniels fudge that was incredible!
Tim met two guys who had sites near us and was able to join them for a fishing charter with Captain Mike and they brought back some delicious Sheepshead. We had one meal with the group and have plenty left in the freezer for a meal or two as well.
On Sundays, Marty, one of the owners of the resort, runs a short devotional in the pavilion and they serve donuts to anyone who stops. in. It is a nice, peaceful addition to their resort.
The resort is just outside of Ocean Springs, Mississippi where you can get a spectacular meal (see the post about Vestige) and do some shopping in their quaint downtown. And just across the water from many, many Biloxi casinos.
Tim and I spent some time (and money) at Beau Rivage. The buffet there was just OK, but the casino is fun and the drinks are free, so we will definitely be back to try to win some of our cash back!
If you are in the area, you really should spend some time at Biloxi Bay RV Resort. If you do, let us know what you think!
