Gulf Haven Campground – Gulfport, MS
In 13 years of full-timing, I have always been pleased by the staff and owners at campgrounds. In the case of Gulf Haven Campground in Gulfport Mississippi, however, it is the worst case I have ever encountered.
I checked in on May 26 and prepaid for a month. The receipt had me leaving on the 26th. On the 25th I was scheduled for surgery and planned on checking out on time on the 26th. On the 24th, I was informed that the computer required me to check out on the day of the surgery… at the same time… one day earlier. When I checked with the office and the owner, in spite of the receipt showing check out on 26th, I would be charged an extra day to check out on the day on the receipt.
Not only was this illegal, they wanted the extra money to stay to the date of the receipt.
I do not recommend that anyone else get caught in this mess. There are too many better, and more sociable, places to stay.
