Our Mission

To introduce people to the benefits of Outdoor Recreation and healthy lifestyle activities by teaching meaningful skills and behaviors through top quality and innovative programming. We also strive to provide equipment, instruction, facilities, and recreation areas to the Keesler Air Force Base community.

  General Info

Outdoor Recreation at Keesler Air Force Base is charged with providing quality outdoor recreational opportunities at affordable prices for the military population and their families. In addition to providing programming, Outdoor Recreation serves as a headquarters for equipment rentals that range from kayaks, paddleboards, and motorized boats to tables, chairs, and camping equipment. Located on the Biloxi Back Bay, our proximity to the water allows us to enable a myriad of services through our beautiful marina pier area.
