Magic River Campground – Long Beach, MS
We really enjoyed Magic River Campground and wish we could have stayed a few more days, but we are on a schedule to get to Florida.
There are no reservations, so we hoped we could find a spot on a Saturday. Luckily, we found a pull thru site. It was fairly level but a little muddy due to rain. It had water and 30 amp, but no sewer connection. They do have a dump station and some sites were FHU. We had no neighbors with our spot, but the other sites seemed well spaced.
There is a single private restroom/shower for the men and for the women. The women’s bathroom was pretty clean but apparently not smoke free. When my daughter and I used it, it smelled like cigarettes and there were 3-4 cigarette butts in the toilet! My husband said the men’s restroom/shower was very clean.
There is no laundry. They have a small rec room with puzzles and books. There was a telephone that looked like an old school pay phone that my kids enjoyed calling us from. There was a nice playground and community fire pit. I think there is a pool, but we didn’t see it.
There are 2 ponds and fishing is allowed. My kids and husband swore they saw an alligator in one! (They do have signs warning of alligators, so keep an eye on your kids and pets.) They have WiFi and we had about 3 bars of 4G with Verizon. We heard a couple of helicopters the first evening, but other than that it was pretty quiet.
We used our Passport America membership. If you have the time, drive Hwy 90 to some of the adjacent coastal towns!
