We had never been to Big Oaks when I made our reservations for Aug 2012. After reading the reviews online I knew that sites were very close together but since most of our time would be spent on the beach this didn't concern me. The staff was very friendly when we checked in and we were thrilled when we pulled... More

One important fact I must stress here, this is a TRAILER PARK with some very small, very crowded 'campsites'. I had asked for something a little secluded and their idea of seclusion was a 12'x12' patch of sand that was closer to its neighboor across the road than it was wide. The fence that bordered our 'campsite' lined right up... More

I came down to Big Oaks for a two-night, three-stay with another couple, their 3-yr-old, and my 9-yr-old son. From the moment we drove onto the property, we were pleased. First of all, there is a very large sign out on the main road, which made the site easy to find. Then, immediately upon our arrival, we were greeted by... More

First, let me say I have never camped so i reserved a cabin. This was an excellent choice. The campsite is so close to Lewes Public Beach, Henlopen State Park Beach, and Rehoboth. The parking is very reasonable on all these beaches. Also, there is a Wawa up the road, within walking distance. We had so much fun, and the... More

My wife and myself booked a week-long stay at this campground during the Fourth of July 2012. My RV was brand new, so this was our first trip. I asked to be placed at one of the many empty premium sites near the pool, and was rudely denied this request. (BTW, they don't accept reservations, so none of the sites... More

We definitely take reservations, and the 4th is booked months ahead. The larger sites are booked up to a year ahead for the holiday. We helped the gentleman on the site, and would have gladly helped him off of it. All he needed to do was ask. More

My 20 year old son and I headed out Sat. morning looking for an adventure. We ended up in DE with our tent and sense of wonder. We landed at the Big Oaks camp ground and thought why not, we will give it a try! From the gate keeper "Larry" to the check in staff in the office it was... More

All in all this wasn't my worst camping experience. We had camped at Trap Pond State Park the first part of the week which was very nice except for the lack of a place to swim in the excessive heat. So we went in search of water and Big Oaks had a pool, so we decided to move. Overall it... More

Management response:

We were at full capacity over the 4th of July, so we were packed. Trap Pond is about 45 minutes from the beach, and can offer more space than we can being so close to the resort area. Private campgrounds can never compete with state parks with pricing, because they use state tax dollars to pay their deficit at the... More

My husband chose to stay in this compground and after I refused to sleep in a tent we rented a cabin. We chose the campground because it was advertised that there was a trail nearby that took you to the beach. We were told the beach was 2 miles away, so a nice walk, however, it probably was more than... More

Camping isn't for everyone. Maybe Dad and the kids could come back for a Father's Day weekend, and Mom could go to the spa and have a relaxing weekend at home, that way everybody woud be happy. We don't supply linens for the cabins, but if someone walks in unprepared, we have a few spares that we lend them, to... More
