This was our 1st time staying at Big Oaks. We read all of the reviews and we were a bit worried after reading the negative ones. We have a 20ft popup and my in-laws have a 22ft travel trailer so we were concerned about the reviews on how small the sites were. This turned out to be a total non... More

I'm glad I didn't listen to the negative reviews either! We had an excellant time! The playground was Great, the staff was friendly, and we ended up extending our mini vacation an additional day. The campground is close to everything in Rehoboth. We are booking another weekend in September. I will say some of the other sights did look tight... More

When looking for a seasonal site at the beach, I did my research. I read many reviews about Big Oaks and a couple of them were very negative. I am so glad that I decided to look into it more! After speaking with the owner, who was very nice and answered every question we had, we decided to stay at... More

We stayed for a week in mid june 2011 in our 40 ft. motorhome. The sites are extremely close and heavily wooded with mature overhanging tree limbs. Our electric hook up was on another lot which we needed extra cord to reach. I had to climb onto my roof several times to cut limbs so the satellite had a veiw.... More

This gentleman previewed the sites a few days prior to arrival and he was given a choice of open or wooded sites. He chose the wooded sites. Upon arrival, he put both of the 40' motorhomes on one site and then started cursing because they couldn't reach the hookups on the other site. He set up before coming to the... More

Check-in was a breeze and I found the staff very well mannered and knowledgeable. We stayed in Cabin 13 and found it fairly comfortable for a rustic cabin. The mini-fridge and microwave were a plus and worked well. The double bed was comfortable even though I had my doubts when I saw how thin the mattress was, but had a... More

We stayed here with extended family just once. It is nice family style campground (if you are into camping - my children are used to a little more luxury on vacation as am I). The sites are heavily wooded. The campground has a nice small swimming pool, playground and pavillion where they host activities for campers. The bath houses are... More
