Buccaneer State Park, Waveland, Hancock County, MS
This park was completely leveled by Hurricane Katrina, but I like its new design. There are now a bunch of medium-sized trees where a mowed field with just a few trees used to be; now there is a curvy path through this little forest. But the beach is right across the road and has its own offerings. See the live map below.

There were lots of Monarchs, but no milkweed; the only milkweed bug I saw was simply nectaring.
