WAVELAND — Five years after Hurricane Katrina smashed its buildings and wiped out its waterslides, Buccaneer State Park is open to visitors again.
Slightly more than 100 camp sites opened last month, offering visitors full hook-ups to water, sewer and electricity. Another 74 are under construction with a scheduled completion by mid-summer. When it’s all finished, campers will have almost 300 sites to choose from.
Renovating and rebuilding the park is a $17 million project.
So far, the main office has been rebuilt, along with a playground, a maintenance facility, three bath houses, two pavilions, the administrators’ residences.
Here is their website.
