Overall Rating

Campground is on the Naval Construction Battalion Center (home of the Navy's Sea Bees) that is convenient to beaches, boating, casinos, fishing, and more!

The campground is well maintained and clean. The WIFI was a pleasent experience, because it actually worked all the time. Did not experience the normal slow downs, typically found in RV parks that offer WIFI.

There are actually two campgrounds at Shields RV Park.

The main campground is near the entrance to the base! It has FHUs, WIFI, and Cable TV. The only drawback with this location is there are several trains a day that pass within a few blocks, so you hear their horns blowing. There is also a busy road near by with lots of truck traffic (the Port of Gulfport is the main port of entry for Dole and Chiquita bananas in the southern part of the US).

The second campground is on the far western side of the base, near the golf gourse and lake. It has FHUs; however, it doesn't have WIFI or Cable TV. This location is newer, has trees, and appears to be quieter than the main campground.

Besides the casinos and beaches, the next best thing to do is to visit Ship Island! A ferry departs Gulfport Harbor daily - March through October. Ship Island is part of the Gulf Islands National Sea Shore (National Park Service) and is 11 miles off the coast in the Gulf Mexico. Well worth the trip for it's excellent beaches and a chance to visit a Civil War Fort.

Will gladly stay here again!
