Choctaw, MS – The Pearl River resort in Choctaw, Mississippi, is home for two Las Vegas-style gambling casinos: The Silver Star and the Golden Moon.

Together they offer more than 5,000 slot machines, 115 table games, and 14 poker tables including Texas Hold ‘Em.

The hotel at the Silver Star houses over 500 rooms. There are seven restaurants; including The Rib Joint, The Steakhouse, and Chef’s Pavilion.

There are five retail shops, an indoor fitness facility, a spa, and a pool. Upcoming concert events for the month of February are Smokey Robinson and Natalie Cole.

The Golden Moon’s twenty eight-story tower features 571 rooms. Restaurants there include the Eclipse Grill, Spectrum Buffet, and Bistro 24. This hotel/casino is located directly across the street from the Silver Star.

If you do not wish to stay in the casino hotels, the Hilton Garden Inn is nearby and features reasonable rates, about 140 rooms with internet access, a workout facility, and an indoor swimming pool and whirlpool.

The Dancing Rabbit Golf Club is also within the Pearl River Report area. Each golf course offers five different sets of tees to accommodate every level of play.

The two courses, The Azaleas and The Oaks, roll out over 14,000 yards. The Club is named for its location on the banks of the Big and Little Dancing Rabbit Creeks not many miles away from the Clubhouse.

If you’d rather cool off than play golf, check out the Geyser Falls Water Theme Park. It’s a fifteen acre family amusement park with a sand beach, twelve waterslides, a huge wave pool, a lazy river, swimming pools, many activities for children, and twelve cabanas for daily rental.

The park can accommodate about 4,000 guests at one time and it is one of the largest water theme parks in the southeast.
