Buccaneer State Park is a state park in the U.S. state of Mississippi. It is located off U.S. Highway 90 and Beach Boulevard (Mississippi Highway 606), straddling the line between Waveland and Clermont Harbor. The park sits on the Gulf of Mexico and was entirely rebuilt after all its buildings were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.[2]

Activities and amenities

The park features a 4.5-acre (1.8 ha) waterpark, more than 300 campsites, bathhouses, recreation center, 18-hole disc golf course, picnic area, playground, and 1.8-mile (2.9 km) nature trail.[2]
