Old Fort Bayou Blueway

Back
Overview

Old Fort Bayou is a 13-mile nature lover's paradise that provides a beautiful vista for canoeing or kayaking. Its origins (headwaters) begin in the longleaf pine savannas south of Vancleave, and continue through many important natural areas, including the Sandhill Crane Wildlife Refuge, The Nature Conservancy's Old Fort Bayou mitigation property, the Land Trust's Twelve Oaks Conservation Park, and Mississippi's Old Fort Bayou Coastal Preserve, deepening and widening toward its mouth at Biloxi Bay in Ocean Springs.

Owned by Land Trust for the MS Coastal Plain (LTMCP). Open Year Round. Click here for a map.
