Sheperd State Park, located at 1034 Graveline Road, Gautier, Mississippi, is a Mississippi State Park that has RV camp sites. RVers who are looking for a place to park their RV while in the Pascagoula, Mississippi area may want to choose to stay here. But, even though this is a great place to stay for a few days in an RV, there are several things about this camp ground that you may need to know. First of all, there are no full hookups, meaning that there are only water and electric available, no sewer hookups. Second of all, there is no Laundromat on the premises so any laundry that will need to be done will have to be carried out of the park to a location off site.
What you will find are 28 RV sites with picnic tables and barbeque grills. You will also have access to a bathhouse, a comfort station, disk golf, fire rings, a ranger station, a playground, a boat ramp and a nature trail. Pets are welcome as long as they are well behaved and you clean up after them. They will also have to be kept on a six foot or smaller leash while they are outside your RV.
There is a maximum of 14 days stay at Shepard State Park, so if you stay 14 days, on the 15th day you will have to move to another area within the park or you will have to move out of the park. There is also no firearms or fireworks allowed in the park and quiet time is 10 pm until 7am.
Even though there is no laundry facility at the park, there is one less than 3 miles away called Quality Coin Laundry and is located on Gautier Van cleave Road, Gautier, Mississippi.
