Mississippi Map

There’s a whole lot to see and do along the coast of Mississippi, The Magnolia State. We’re highlighting two of RVers favorite pastimes for your southern Mississippi road trip — spots famous for great fishing and some of the hottest casinos in America. So come on down to Mississippi, roll some dice and grab yourself a plate of downhome southern fried catfish!


1. Bay St. Louis

Starting Point

Hop a fishing charter boat and head out for a day of outstanding fishing in Bay St. Louis. Reel in the big ones like speckled trout, redfish, black drum, triple tail, flounder and more. We like “Shore Thing Fishing Charters” but you pick one of 231 charter companies. Have fun and don’t forget your sunscreen! While in the area, check out the Hollywood Casino. Here’s Vegas-style gaming action in spades. Pull up a seat and win big at your favorite slot and table games. Then stick around for live entertainment, golf and fine dining, all within the casino’s 600-acre waterfront grounds.


2. Gulfport

Drive 16 miles • 25 minutes

Gulfport’s another gem on the Mississippi coast. Explore the area’s many parks, water features and adventure opportunities. Our favorite recreation spot? Ship Island. Take a ferry from Gulfport and see why USA Today calls this one of America’s top-10 beaches. Also, drop into Island View Casino Resort. Game big and win big. Everything’s big at the biggest casino in the state with 126,000 square feet of gaming. Try your luck with the casino’s rotating specials like Shake It Up Giveaways; Prize Pack Giveaways; Double Play Kiosk Games; Honey Bee Slot Tournaments and more.

3. Biloxi

Drive 13 miles • 26 minutes

Biloxi is heaven-on-earth for gamers. Choose among nine casinos — heck, try them all. Some are on land; many are on permanently-moored riverboats. Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Beau Rivage Resort & Casino, Golden Nugget Biloxi Hotel and Casino, Harrah Casino — the gaming goes on and on. You’ll also get a chance to see world-class entertainers take the stage and dazzle audiences. If you’re inspired by sea food, go on a shrimp cruise to see how these morsels are caught. Forrest Gump did it, why not you? Take a shrimp boat cruise and see how “shrimpers” capture boatloads of these sea creatures along with crabs, flounder, squid, oysterfish and more. Cruise companies like Biloxi Shrimping Trip go further, teaching everything imaginable about catching, cooking, and eating these delicacies!
