The low-budget web site, lack of online reservations, no credit card for reservations, etc. should have clued me in on what to expect at this campground. From the time we made our reservation until we checked out at the end of our stay, we had the distinct impression that their main objective was to spend as little money on their facility as possible and pack as many people into their facility as possible. Pool was tiny, playground minimal, camp store way overpriced, lots of signage to make sure all visitors paid/no outside firewood brought in.... just seemed like they were trying to squeeze every dime they could. Our campsite was basically a parking lot of travel trailers - no privacy or ambiance whatsoever. We had just come from a MD state park campground and our kids literally cried when they saw the set up at Big Oaks. There was a very nice and clean laundry facility and the bathhouse was clean as well. Other than that, I wouldn't recommend this campground unless you don't mind being packed in like sardines.
