Moss Point, MS is a little city with a mix of swampland and concrete, making it a fun place to explore no matter what your tastes are. Located in Jackson County, Moss Point -- population density 555 -- is right next to the Mississippi Welcome Center, where you will find a pawpular hiking trail just in time for you to stretch your legs and give your pets a potty break. This trail is a 1.4-mile beauty full of wildflowers and panoramic views of the flowing Escatawpa River hidden behind the I10 interstate.
Once you get into Moss Point, check in to one of the six pet-friendly hotels you can choose from, all conveniently located in the city center, and to the two local vet clinics in the event of unforeseen medical concerns with Fido.
Moss Point also has seven parks you can visit where Fido can enjoy the walking tracks, splash pads, open lawns, and more. Interested in exploring the waters of Mississippi? Check out one of their multiple airboat tours for some local wildlife spotting (some are pet-friendly, some are not, so call ahead!).
When you and Fido find yourselves in need of a little off-leash adventure, you'll find several furrific dog parks just a bone's throw away from Moss Point!
Moss Point is situated right next to the Mississippi Welcome Center, and a mere five miles beyond the small city of Escatawpa. This little gem is where you will find the famed Escatawpa Hiking Trail, a gorgeous wooded trail that hits the I10 interstate across the state line from Alabama. The Escatawpa Hiking Trail is a short 1.4-mile circular path full of natural wildlife, an abundance of wildflowers, and panoramic views of the flowing Escatawpa River hidden behind the expanse of busy road and the Welcome Center. Don't forget to snap a pic with Fido from one of the viewpoints along the river!
One of Moss Point's most prized parks is the famous and recently renovated Riverfront Park. This ground is the designated site for the majority of Moss Point's special events, but in between those special occasions, visitors can use the trails and walkways to enjoy the beauty of Mississippi. You and Fido can enjoy the scenic paths that overlook the water and eat your picnic lunch on the expansive stretches of green grass. When you are ready to get active, you can rent a kayak or let Fido cool down and splash in the water while you spend the day leisurely fishing.
When fast food is not tempting your palate but you still want to bring Fido to dine with you, you can zip up the road four miles to the lovely city of Pascagoula. Right in the Pascagoula City Center, you will find the Paradise Deli and Grill, the perfect place to enjoy a pupperific meal on their scenic pet-friendly patio. Known for their big portions and flavorful food, this little restaurant is a favorite among the locals and their furry friends. While you're in Pascagoula, cross the bridge into Lowry Island and visit one of the two fenced-in dog parks near the Ingalls shipyard, where Fido can play on the wooden ramps, in the caves, or with the fire hydrants!
Presley's Outing is a pupular small campground in Moss Point where the owner is renowned for taking pride in his business and his property. Many visitors call this place a slice of heaven and highly recommend it as a family- and pet-friendly park. Beautiful river sunrises and sunsets, swimming, and boating are just part of what you and Fido can enjoy while you visit Presley's. There is an on-site restaurant with delicious food where you can order while Fido waits outside. Then, you can sit at one of the pavilions and indulge your senses with relaxing scenic views, unique Mississippi wildlife, and delectable dinners!
If you are looking for a great place to let your pets run some energy off, take the six-mile drive to Gautier and visit Shepard State Park. For a small entry fee, you can get access to this park, where, in addition to the RV campgrounds, you will find a wide variety of nature trails. They can be combined to form an intense eight-mile hike, or you can choose the shorter trails for more moderate exercise. Along the trails, you will find basic restrooms and showers, as well as spigots for Fido to have water access, but you'll need to bring your own clean-up baggies.
