I decided to write a review of this campground after reading some of the recent negative reviews because this campground does not deserve them! This really is a nice place.
We visited Big Oaks in July 2012 and found the place to be clean, well managed and in a great location close enought to ride our bikes to the beach.This is the kind of place my parents took us to growing up there was nice pool, clean bathrooms and great playgrounds. The staff was professional, helpful and the place seemed to be family run.
I think the problem is that many people are not doing enough research about their destination before they book. First off this is a campground not a Luxury RV Resort!!! So if you are looking for extra wide spaces, a bar and 5 star resort amenites this isn't the place for you. Second, if you are booking a camping cabin don't expect it to be a hotel room because it's not one! If you dont expect to "rough it" a little go to a hotel!
Next, bathrooms our camp site was close to the large set of bathrooms and we saw them being cleaned at least twice a day and found them adequate to meet our needs. I feel the campgroud does their part to maintain the property and you can't falt them in other campers don't have common bathrom curtesy. My bathroom comments are: yes there was a cracked light fixture that attracted bugs but you are camping so expect to see a few bugs.Also some hooks in the showers to hang towels or belongings on would be helpful as the benches provided are often wet.
So folks if you are looking for a nice safe place to camp don't be afraid to book Big Oaks If you are looking for hotel style amenites book a hotel!
