We have been coming to this campground for a few years during the summer and now we are seasonal residents. This place is hands down one of the best campgrounds on the eastern shore. We have pulled our travel trailer to just about every campground in the Ocean City and Delaware area. They are very friendly and the location to boardwalk is amazing. They have nice amenities for the kids and the karaoke they do is great for the kids. If you have a travel trailer or looking for a place to tent camp I would highly recommend this campground.

We rented 4 cabins this past week. We absolutely loved our stay. Cabins were clean and cozy. Pool was great. Bathroom and shower house were right next to us and were cleaned daily. The owners were great and very friendly. The General store is great and has many things to buy. Campground was very great location and so close to so many things. We will definitely be back again next year.

We made a last minute decision to make a beach trip for the weekend.. They are very accommodating, bath house was clean. Pool was very nice. They are pet friendly and close to the beach or anything you need. They are very crowded and busy but everyone was quiet and respectful. The only negative about it was the mosquito's they are ridiculous. Would definitely come back!

OK.. so we booked this place based off location/availability for Memorial Day weekend without reading reviews. This is how our experience was overall. The good: -Great location very close to all the Rehoboth Beach attractions - Staff was helpful with questions and nice overall (contrary to many of the reviews) - Fellow campers were friendly in general -The park is older, but the parts of the park we saw were pretty well kept. The Bad: -We were set up between two seasonal/permanent sites that were in very rough shape. Felt like being in a seedy trailer park at our particular site. -Electric is very sketchy. I was nervous plugging in especially given that there was no breaker at the hookup and I was right. The pedestal had black char around the outlet when we hooked up (thought maybe it was old damage) and then when we disconnected today we found our brand new surge protector melted/charred/destroyed, which was better than our brand new camper! -Sites are VERY small and cramped. Zero privacy, and the picnic table had to be literally up against the sewer line of the unit next to us. -ANTS EVERYWHERE, they got in the camper, they were crawling up our legs, they were biting our dog... awful. -The "Confederate flag situation", yes they are EVERYWHERE. The store has a huge section of confederate merchandise. Everyone has there own thoughts on this, and I will leave it at that for you to determine your own opinions. All of the staff was nice to us though... -CASH ONLY, did not like having to mail a check in advance for deposit, and then on site they will only accept cash. I am sure this is for tax avoidance, but I always use a credit card for travel so that I have insurance in the event that something happens. -Trash areas were overflowing everyday we were there. Had we known that the state parks had full hookup sites, we would have booked there, with that being said, we would consider coming back here if we could not get in at the state parks (with additional electrical protection!).

We always camp at Big Oaks when we come to the beach. We have tent canned for multiple years but recently upgraded to a pop up camper. We love that Big Oaks is shaded throughout and they allow dogs. The bath houses are cleaned regularly. There is a nice pool and store within walking distance to any camp site. You can bike to the beach on the trail about a mile down the road and you can catch the bus right at the campground.

This was the first year we camped at this campground. At first we were hesitant about how close the sites were. However after finding out the campground was founded in the 60's we understood. We were so satisfied with our stay before we left, we decided to book for next year. Friendly staff, great amenities and fun activities. Great place for the entire family.

We spend Memorial Day weekend in Big Oaks Camp and the location, stuff, and service was really good. They have a nice sized pool, laundry, karaoke, and playground. Clean toilet and shower are on the side. The only one thing that is very disappointed - a lot of ticks all around the camp! Our dogs and friends was bite multiple times! Spray, lotion, and other kind of repellent don’t help a lot. I hope administration will take an action and then I’ll rate it as a 5 star place!

There are several reasons that I would not recommend staying here and we will not be returning. The main reason is all the confederate flags. It was very disturbing. There were many sites that appeared to have seasonal residents that were in disrepair. The sites are small and close together. The bathrooms showers were not very clean. If you are a racist that wants to camp in a worn out trailer park then this is the place for you. Otherwise, find another place.

A nice quiet campground. There's a store in the office with general condiments and toiletries. A pool, playground, and arcade. The cabins are small with just a mini-fridge and microwaves, two single bunk beds and one double bed. The tent spots have water and electric. Staff is friendly.

I initially wanted to stay here because when I called, I learned it's a family owned campground and I wanted to support that type of a business. But when I went to the camp store to pick up some snacks... HOLY COW that store was FULL of confederate paraphernalia and hats and clothing about Trump being the "real" president (still!). OMG. It was like an alternate reality. The confederate stuff was just insanity. Sunglasses, hats, signs, shirts, it was BAD and it was all over the store. Like, what do you even do in that situation? It's racist and hateful and I felt terrible supporting this place. I should have read the reviews ahead of time. The campground was definitely run down and looked as though it hadn't been updated -- or cleaned -- in a long time. The pool was very small, but luckily it wasn't too crowded when we were there. The people were nice enough to my face and it was close to the beach. They also had a mini farmer's market by the pool. For me though, the pros do not outweigh the cons. I certainly wouldn't choose to go back there again. It just didn't feel safe to me.
