The Stories Behind This Haunted Mississippi Island Will Give You Goosebumps

A quarter mile off the coast of Biloxi, you’ll find Deer Island. The tropical treasure is the closest to the coastline of all the barrier islands, yet many residents don’t know it’s there, which means they are also unaware of its haunted past.

Have you ever heard about paranormal occurrences on Deer Island? Despite the stories, Deer Island truly is a gem worth checking out. The best part? Since it’s so close, anyone with a small boat, canoe, kayak, or paddleboard can access it.
