A Memorable Night Out in Nature

Guests will enjoy a peaceful night secluded in the sights and sounds of nature. The propane heater will keep you warm as you cozy up together in the spacious canvas abode, atop the memory foam mattress. Or, take the opportunity to light a campfire and roast some s’mores. Either way, a night under the oak-lined, starry skies will be sure to ease you into relaxation.

Hiking Pirate's Alley Nature Trail at Buccaneer State ParkWithin the park, guests have access to the 1.8-mile Pirate’s Alley Nature Trail, a playground, disc golf course, pavilions, and Buccaneer Bay Waterpark (opens May 30, 2022; day passes required). If you’re wanting to do some shopping and downtown exploring as well, Waveland’s city center and Old Town Bay St. Louis are about a ten-minute drive away. Rum Kitchen and Thorny Oyster are just a couple of great restaurants nearby that will have you ending the night satiated.

Did we mention that Buccaneer State Park is located right off the Gulf of Mexico? Be prepared for unlimited beachfront views and a refreshing saltwater breeze. Spend the day soaking up the sun on Waveland Beach – the only community on the Gulf Coast that prohibits commercial buildings on its beachfront. For even more fun, guests can book a canoe or kayak tour with Wolf River Canoe & Kayak, or rent bikes at Bodega Adventure Rentals & Sales to cycle the Waveland-Bay St. Louis bike trail.
