Shepard State Park is nestled in the heart of Singing River (Pascagoula River) country, where legend has it that members of the Pascagoula Indian nation linked hands and walked into the Pascagoula River rather than be taken captive by hostile Indian tribes. The 400 acre coastal park features developed and tent camping sites, nature trail, picnic area, playground, disc golf, boat ramp and a birding and wildlife viewing in several distinct habitats: bay head swamps, tidal marshes, pine flatwoods, oak magnolia ridges, longleaf pine savanna under redevelopment; three nature trails; variety of plants, birds, and wildlife.
