We checked out the campsite this past Oct. when we were visiting for the Sea Wtich festival. Looking forward to camping in June. I know the owners were very nice when I called last summer. They do not take reservations so, is it ok to just show up with cash in hand? Just wondering and thought I would ask the locals.
The Happy Campers...Can't wait for June!
Ok, let me start by saying I've been coming to Big Oaks for about 25 years now. Yes, it is tight but I already knew that and it didn't present a problem because we usually are out and about going to the beach or whatever. The pool is fine during the week but crowded on weekends. I don't usually camp during July and August because I don't care for large crowds. The bathrooms are clean most of the time but as anyone with a brain knows, when the place is crowded, it may be harder to stay on top of the cleaning. Can I place some blame on the management? Sure, maybe they need to hire a few more people during the busy months (maybe they already do) but I place most of the blame on some of the inconsiderate aholes who camp. THAT'S ANYWHERE. Most of the bad reviews I see here are from people that shouldn't even be camping. They didn't get up from their chairs Boo Hoo, they only take cash boo hoo, It was to tight boo hoo, they were rude boo hoo. I don't go camping to have the owners fuss over me. I've had problems and issues that I brought up to the owners and they always addressed them without being rude. Here's an idea people, perhaps it's the way you present your concerns. As for the guy who's been camping for 35 years, grow a set and learn how to drive a bigger rig and quit crying. I have yet to have a problem turning around on that single street into the campground. Now to the politically correct individual who had black friends that were offended by the confederate flags. If the flags were an issue or it was so bad, why did you stay? Good thing you won't come back, (here comes the sarcasm) they were probably planning a cross-burning on your sight. Whatever their feelings (the owners) towards that flag, making assumptions about their reason for flying it only makes you look like a close-minded fool. It's camping people, where you depend on yourself, not a hotel.
This is to Tom, the 35 year camping veteran. ...After 35 years of camping you should know how to drive your RV. What did you expect at a campground, indoor outdoor carpet at each campsite? If you want the red carpet treatment maybe you should check into a hotel and get the bell hop to do the rest. You should be ashamed to call yourself a camper. This is a very nice place to camp and ride your bike. If you want to ride your bike around the block, stay home. To the rest of the readers.....This place is awsome!
I had the great pleasure of camping at Big Oaks family Campground May 2011. After reading a few negative reviews, I was pleasantly surprised at this campground. A tool that should be used in a positive way, has given camper with negative experience at no fault of the campground to post their opinions. So thanks to my adventurous personality, I went anyway and so glad I took the chance. If 5 stars are the highest rating, I say Big Oaks deserves all 5 the owner was pleasant accommodating and just downright friendly. The grounds were will maintained, bathrooms were clean, there are site for all size RV 's. Big Oaks campground was locate in central area for shopping, bike riding, beaches etc.
Thank You for an enjoyable vacation.
I found Big Oaks on the web, and after looking at their video, and reading what they
printed, I decided to call for a reservation.
I was told among other things, The beach was 2 miles from the back of the camp by bicycle.
I was told on the phone and In person on checkin, that payment was CASH only with NO refund.
I now know why.
The place is grossly mis-represented on the website and on the phone.
I have camped for 35 years, and NEVER have been so disappointed in a campground.
It is nothing more then 1 road in, and a tight turn around, , infront of the office, and you drive out.
When I stopped to register, I had to park in front of the office. This blocked ALL traffic in both directions until, I had to do a K turn to get back out to my site. All traffic both ways, backed up.
The other roads are very tight, small, covered with dirt, and twisting with hills.
NO RV's can travel them. The only road worth riding a bike on in the camp was the road to the office with a speed bump ever block. The rest were backwoods dirt covered hazards.
The Big Lie The Beach access.
They state and told me on the phone 2 miles from the back of the campground by Bike.
It was a mile down the road to the bike path. Pedaled for 5 minutes to a sign that stated 3.5 miles to the end of the Bike path.
at the end, it was 2 more miles to the beach.
They DONOT refund your cash because they are crooks and liers.
I packed up, and went to a real campground after the first day. Lost 3 days $$$,
but I would not EVER stay there even for free !!
We stayed in one of the rental trailers and loved it. It had everything we needed and we we able to do our laundry every night. It was clean and convient to shopping and the beach. We recommend staying here. The busing is alittle time consuming but you could always drive to the boardwalk.
Recently, my family and I stayed at the Big Oaks Campground. We had a great time. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The bathrooms were very clean and well maintained. The pool was also very clean and supervised. There were many activities for the kids to do. They had a playground, basketball court, a gameroom, shuttleboard, etc.. They had a lot of fun. There was also a well stocked store for the many items I forgot to bring and a beautiful gift shop. The best part was not having to deal with the traffic after we got there. They had a shuttle service that took you to the beach, outlet stores, movies, dining or just about any place you wanted to go. This was absolutely one of our best camping experiences ever and we can't wait to go back.
folks in the office were very nice, friendly and helpful. Pool was clean and well attended. Campsite was ample and private. We liked all the trees. Kids loved the playground. My kids said this was the best campground ever. Shuttle to the beach was very convenient, and we used at least once daily. Restrooms were clean and well attended. We camped in a class c motorhome with full hookup.
Cramped spaces... difficult to navigate if you have a larger RV (27' trailer). Nice pool, lots of shade throughout camping area. Some campsites are VERY DIFFICULT to get into. Roads are too narrow. Saw one camper destroy his awning on a tree while trying to navigate narrow roads. Another had to have a tractor come in to take him from the tree that he was pinned to! I will not return to Big Oaks Campgrounds- sites are too close together.
