SHEPARD STATE PARK 1034 Graveline Rd, Gautier, MS 39553 (228) 497-2244 Area : Park - 395 acres Location : 3 miles west of Pascagoula, south of US 90 at Gautier. Shepard has 395 acres abounding with trees and wild flowers, bike and nature trails, 28 developed campsites, 1 bathhouse, tent camping and picnicking and 18 hole disc golf course. 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.
3 miles west of Pascagoula, south of US 90 at Gautier, exit 61 off of Interstate 10. Most GPS and Map Quest searches will not lead you to the park the shortest way. Feel free to call the park office for directions.
