VIEW ALL PROJECTS

Buccaneer State Park On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina, one of the most devastating storms in the history of the United States, came ashore with winds of over 140 miles per hour and a tidal surge of nearly 30 ft. The hurricane heavily damaged all of the 400-acre Buccaneer State Park including building structures, the waterpark and support facilities.

Over the last seven years, the park has been under complete and varying stages of reconstruction, and has now been beautifully restored to its original state.

Opened in June 2013, the refurbished waterpark located on the beach in Waveland features:

17,500 sq. ft. Wave Pool

  • 460,000-gallon capacity
  • Features eight different wave patterns

700 sq. ft. Plunge Pool with two waterslides

  • 375 ft. enclosed flume waterslide
  • 425 ft. open-air waterslide

800 sq. ft. Kiddie Pool

  • 6 in. deep pool
  • Zero entry
  • Tipping buckets
  • Bubblers

4,600 sq. ft. Activity Pool

  • Depths ranging up to 3 ft. 6 in.
