Reviewing Hollywood Casino Gulf Coast in Bay St. Louis

Located in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, on the sprawling Mississippi River delta, Hollywood Casino Gulf Coast is perfectly situated to offer aquatic activities among its entertainment options. When they’re not trying their luck on the casino floor, guests can relax on the beach or at the swimming pools, or enjoy sailing, power boating and a variety of water sports at the resort’s 25-slip marina.
