Located on the beach of the Gulf of Mexico and just 50 miles from historic New Orleans, Buccaneer State Park is a year-round vacation spot rich in coastal beauty and recreational opportunities. The area now encompassed by the park was frequented by pirates in the 1700s, and figures prominently in mysterious tales of smuggling and buried treasure. Today Buccaneer State Park is best known for its exciting wave pool, which provides a safe yet exciting setting for summer rafting and body surfing, and as a winter retreat where the mild temperatures allow outdoor recreation year-round.

August 13 Misleading by Stephanie_T
park review stars; one to five We planned out our vacation months ago to Buccaneer State Park. It was us an another family with 4 kids between us so the attractions that drew us was the water park and park pool for the kids. Well we got here on a Sunday only to find out that the pool nor water park will be open until the weekend. This was not something that was communicated to us and our kids were very upset. I understand short staff and no life guards but we should have been notified that way we would not be expecting those things once we arrived or we could have scheduled our trip elsewhere. I also understand that we pay extra for the use of those things but they are attractions to this park and campers should be notified when they wont be available especially when we have reservations. I defiantly will not be back for any other vacations.

park review stars; one to five Husband and I booked 10 days in Buccaneer and are leaving 5 days early, losing half of what we paid. When I made the reservation, I was very specific asking if they had a pool. Telling them we wanted to make sure because being seniors we would not be going to the beach. I was told they had a water park for which we would have to pay extra, I told them we would not be able to physically do that, then they told me there was a separate pool for others. They DID NOT tell me that pool was only 2 1/2 feet deep and you had to pay $6.00 per day to go in it. In 5 days we have seen everything in New Orleans and Biloxi and there is nothing to see in this immediate area. We expected to be able to enjoy the pool....not paying to step in an just get wet.
