Turkey Creek Blueway
Turkey Creek begins in central, rural Harrison County and flows toward its confluence with Bayou Bernard just north of the Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport. The creek is popular for fishing, swimming, and canoeing and is a historic and present contributor to the local culture and quality of life. The Gulfport Lake Boat Launch is located behind Bayou Vista Golf Course on Washington Ave. There is an asphalt parking area, and a sandbeach to the side of the boat ramp for kayak and canoe launching. The trail is 5 miles out and back. Expect a light chop in Bernard Bayou to flat water with light current in Turkey Creek with Wet Pine Savanna and Marsh coastline .
