Gulf Islands National Seashore

If you are coming from Florida heading to the East part and traveling highway 90, then, Gulf Islands National Seashore in Ocean Springs, Mississippi is just at the left side of the road. Try to visit this park, it is free and the view is amazing. If you love outdoors, camping and walking on the trails, then, take time to drop by in this national park.If you love the pictures that I share with you and wanted to visit Gulf Islands National Seashore in Davis Bayou Area, driving instructions here: U.S. 90, east of downtown Ocean Springs, MS. Use Exit 50 or 57 south from I-10.
It is free to visit and wander the huge area but, when you Camp in Davis Bayou Campground you will pay the Electric Site for $16.00. If you use want to use the Davis Bayou Group Tenting Area, these are the fees: 10-25 Persons will be $20.00 and 26-40 Persons is only $30.00. You can also choose the Dump Station (Non-registered campers) for $5.00. Then, this park offers a Pavilion Reservations with the following rates: 1-99 Persons is $25.00 and 100+ Persons is charge a $100.00.If you wanted to enjoy the cool breeze of the place and have a boat, Davis Bayou Boat Launch will cost you only $3.oo /day and if you think, you will visit the place more often, better pay $20.00 for annual.The park is pretty safe and clean. This park is really rich in natural resources The sparkling blue waters is what I love most plus the magnificent snowy-white beaches which I already shared some pictures in my older posts. This place has fertile coastal marshes and beautiful winding nature trails which I never tried yet but, I saw group of people heading that way with a map. You will never get lost in the woods.As what I gathered from the locals here, more than 80% of the park is a submerged lands so, marine life is full. The soft wet ground that collects fresh rainwater is a habitat that support diverse communities of plants and animals in this bayou. The live oak forests in this vicinity is the home to many of the resident and migrating bird populations.I can't help but take a picture of this oak tree. What a beautiful glimpse of nature, right? Enjoy the pictures and may you find time traveling to Ocean Springs, Mississippi with your friends and family.
