In addition to these water parks, there are several smaller water parks, many of which are part of campgrounds, making it easy to turn a day of fun in the sun into an overnight adventure.

When do water parks open in Mississippi?

Water parks in Mississippi open at various times; however, most are open by Memorial Day. Since each park basically has its own season, it’s always a good idea to check with the park prior to visiting. And remember, if you plan on visiting the park several times during the summer, look into a season pass, which could possibly save you some dough.

What do I need to bring to a water park in Mississippi?

When visiting a Mississippi water park, your bathing suit is an obvious must-have, but it’s not the only thing you’ll need. Other items you’ll want to bring along include a towel, waterproof sunscreen, flip flops or water shoes, sunglasses and goggles, which are great for use in wave pools.
