'Wetlands'

Shepard State Park is nestled in the heart of Singing River (Pascagoula River) country, where legend has it that members of the Pascagoula Indian nation linked hands and walked into the Pascagoula River rather than be taken captive by hostile Indian tribes. The mournful death chant they sang as they walked earned the Pascagoula River the nickname "Singing River." Tales of the heroic exploits of French and Spanish settlers and romantic legends of the Pascagoula and Biloxi Indians are standard fare in the scenic coastal area surrounding Shepard State Park.

February 1 best place for frog legs by ellie Phont
we were able to gig for frogs and it was awesome. I ate so many frog lets kermit thought he was next! We were told that camping nude wasnt approved but i think the yogi ranger dude was jealous. we were able to go streaking and skinny dipping every night without issue though! going back in two weeks for some fun. Maybe that ranger in the nine west boots would like to swim?
December 7 Our favorite so far. by Trinity Rangers
Our church group camped here and had a awsome time. Very nice facilities and the kids loved the bike trails.
October 23 GREAT CAMPING by Jacquelyn S.
I took my 9 year old granddaughter and 7 year old grandson tent camping Memorial week-end 2010. The park was clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The camp sites offer a degree of privacy and the trails are beautiful. We will be going back!

May 15 Clean Bathhouse, Friendly Staff by Woolley Family
My husband is active duty Navy and we are relocating to MS. During my daughters Spring Break we camped at Shepard for a week so we could get familiar with the area before making the move. Ranger Mike was very helpful with local information. We will be back!
