Old Fort Bayou is a beautiful, meandering waterway in Jackson County, Mississippi. Its origins (headwaters) begin in the longleaf pine savannas south of Vancleave. The bayou continues 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.
