Nice park, mostly seasonals, so it was quiet. Two pools, store, snack bar, laundry. A lost of the sites you are near water, either a cove or the bay.
Not a lot of shade, but our site was level. Had a concrete pad, but we put the trailer on the gravel alongside and put out carpet/table on the pad. Saw a LOT of drainage issues when I had looked at their Facebook page and wanted a dry spot. WiFi was at the game room area only, but we were able to use (at times) Xfinity hotspots when the signal was good
Nice spot to be at close to Ocean City, MD, and beaches. - Pondguy

Most sites are seasonal RVs and park models. Our site was next to impossible to back into in a 38' trailer. Site was a sand base with some grass. Showers were very small and without handles to adjust temperature and flow and didn't drain. For Wi-Fi you had to go to pool area, not available at site. Cable is available but you have to give them a deposit and hookup a separate box. Not worth the price! - Mahalo

Great location to visit area attractions, just minutes to ocean. Mostly permanent sights, most were well maintained. We camped in a lovely spot facing the canal. Nice facilities: pool, office, store and laundry very clean. Our only complaint, the park needs more trees and shade. WiFi only works at front of the park near the activity centre. - acadiandave

State Park with lots of activities. Fishing, free bike rentals, trails, great kayaking, nature center, row boat and pedal boat rentals. Check with the nature center for pontoon boat tours. $6.00 very reasonable for one hour informative tour.
Large well spaced sites , on dirt and pine needles. Older bathhouse but clean. Quiet and uncrowded during our weekday stay. - grj

We have camped here many times. Always enjoyed our time here. This time we were a little creeped out by the guy riding around on a golf cart. He was tattooed on arms, neck and face. I guess he was a host. He rode around like he was casing the place. Bath houses were clean, pond was beautifull as usual. The pontoon boat ride done by the park naturalist is a must do for visitors. - doghouse traveler

Very good shade, pull-through (Loop D) was fine for my 30' motorhome; however, I saw the longer RVs struggling with the tight spaces between trees. Other loops (A-C) were more accommodating for the longer RVs; however, the electrical and water services were installed so that adjoining spaces shared a common water facet and the electric boxes were back to back. Swimming is not allowed in the pond; however, can boat and kayak. The conditions for bicycling were excellent within the park and the surrounding state and county roads (wide shoulders both directions). Bathrooms need updating. Laundry was $1.50 per load for each of the washers and dryers. - Chave

This campground needs maintenance. Roads are bad and sites are sometimes covered with leaves. Pool is nice though. It is in a very nice forest and people were very friendly. If you like a neat and clean place, you won't like it. But if you prefer a quiet spot in the woods, you might like it. - Floodedcamper

We went here for the Memorial Day weekend. Large shaded sites. Unfortunately, they were covered with dried leaves and sand fleas. The fleas covered everything and everyone by 9 am each morning. All amenities - pool, activities, wildlife viewing, petting areas, etc were a 20 minute bike ride from our site. Gate that led to amenities was supposed to be unlocked, but was only unlocked once for 6 hours. Paid for full hookups, but sewer was only a pipe (no cap on many of the sites) laying sideways on the ground. When we or the neighboring sites dumped, odors were horrific. Would not recommend this park. - Jeff & Terry

Well, I booked this trip BEFORE I read the reviews - almost a big mistake. First, the roads are as bad advertised. I have a 26' TT, and the twisting, very bumpy roads consistently put me within inches of trees on both sides. Drive VERY slow and you can make it, but I have no idea how a big rig can get through there. My biggest complaints about the park all took place within the first 2 hours of check in. The lady at the front desk gave me a map and in big black marker showed me exactly where to go to get to my site. If you go, DO NOT FOLLOW HER INSTRUCTIONS! These are pull through sites (if that's what you want to call them), so I followed her instructions. Very nearly got stuck / damaged my TT following the road the WRONG way (you needed to loop around and come from the other direction). So I get to my site, and it is a mess! It was a former seasonal site, and was full of trash, concrete cinder blocks, broken up sewer hose, etc. The sewer hookup (only found it by tracing the old sewer hose, under a pile of leaves) was about 50' from the water and electric, they were on opposite corners of the lot. After 20 minutes of trying to figure it out, I called back to the office and moved a couple spots up to where I could make it work. There were all seasonals around me, and an abandoned trailer in the next site (someone just dragged it there on flat tires, broken awning, etc). The site was a good sized lot, and flat. So that's the bad part, but this place kind of grew on me. The seasonal neighbors were all friendly and helpful, the pool was decent, and the location was excellent. They have a large animal area with goats, deer, and donkeys. There is another area with three very big peacocks and a lookout platform that looks out over the marsh area. The tower was a death trap, though - don't let small kids go unattended! This park is very large, and broken up in 2 large sections. We stayed in the section closest to the main gate and camp store. The sites in this area (the park looked ~90% full) were ALL seasonals, so that may account for the difficulties I had getting set up. The other section might be a little more over-night friendly. The bathhouse was OK, but was a horror-show one morning, so I never went back. (I don't blame the park for the disgusting behavior of some people) I can understand the low ratings, based on the frustration I felt the first day. But this isn't that bad of a place, and is probably a great place to have a seasonal (it's pretty cheap). - Super Tank

Definitely a sellers market. Tough price to pay to be this close to the beach.too crowded, spaces too small. Very noisy. Cash only in the office, no checks or credit cards.
There is a state park near Bethany that is much nicer, but has no shade and is too hot in the summer. This place is strictly a last resort type of place. - Buddy Bus

Nice park with decent sized sites. As mentioned in other reviews, this is a cash only park which would have been nice to know before we got there. There is a no-fee ATM at the convenience store right down the street. The location was super convenient to several beaches, shopping, and restaurants. My only complaint is that the cable did not work unless we fed the cord from the box in through a window, which meant leaving the window open and it did rain while we were gone so we had a mess to clean up, but no water damage. The Wi-Fi never worked and they tried to tell me that it was my phone and Kindle that were the problem. I was able to get a connection on both when I left the campground and went to a public Wi-Fi spot. - Bonnie66

We stayed here as it is the closest campground to Rehoboth Beach. We weren't looking for a traditional camping experience, instead we camped as an alternative to a hotel. We were there to go to the beach. That being said we had a good stay. Since it was after Labor Day, the pool was closed. We kind of expected that but our kids could have enjoyed it. Our site was wooded and we asked for that. Many of the transient sites are out in the open though. Most of the sites are seasonal/permanent. The road through the campground is tight - I felt lucky to leave without hitting a tree and my TT is only 21'. Our site was sandy and not entirely level. A staff member helped me back in - no pull-throughs here. I used leveling blocks but they actually sunk into the sand. The sewer hookup was far to the rear of the site, and there wasn't enough of a drop so I needed to 'help' the black water make its way to the outlet. As I was preparing to leave I couldn't remove my sewer adapter from their connection. I ran to the office to ask for a strap wrench, and within a few minutes an employee showed up with a wrench. Staff was friendly and the campground is family-owned. We would stay there again. Only real negative was the cable TV - they recently re-wired everything and you can get a cable box for a deposit. The service would sometimes stop and an error message would appear. Don't know if this is something Big Oaks can control. - MattFromPA

We have stayed in this park several times, particularly because the North beach is pet friendly. South beach has a lifeguard, but dogs aren't allowed on the beach. The North beach doesn't have a lifeguard. Your camping fee does allow you access to several different beaches, so you can camp in one area and "beach" in another. In season there is a marina open for meals and drinks. Close to Dewey, Bethany and Rehoboth for shopping and restaurants. The campground sites are nice. The roads are paved, flat, and wide enough. Keep dogs off the sandy areas due to sand burrs! Restrooms are roomy and clean. There is a nice clean laundry area, but we didn't use it. I have heard the staff will not allow any early check-ins and have you drive to a beach parking lot a few miles away to wait. I can't say. We never have arrived at check in time! We *thought* we had a fire pit when we camped last year, but there were no pits at any sites this time. - WMRamblers

Nice park, good price and convenient for the many attractions in area....especially the fishing! Sites are level, very near sea water so no trees and not a lot of grass surviving in the sand. No Wi-Fi but good signal on our Verizon cell phone. The turn off for the entrance is tricky; we missed the north entrance (before the bridge) but recovered in time to catch the south entrance (after we crossed the bridge). We will definitely stay there again when we are in the area. - Mom_of_Two

Right on the water. There is a South and North park; North side is newer. South "end" sites, of the North Park side, are closest to water view. we were in 439 and had some water views. Nice paved walk along the water. Beach 150 yards away. Basic sandy sites. Picnic benches. Paved roads and sites. New facilities, although hubby did say he could not get hot water out of the showers, but he did not ask why. Nice little park that I would guess is packed in the summer. New small trees. The only reason I gave it an 8 is that there really is not much at the site itself. - User3274

We stayed on the bay side, expecting to be eaten alive by the infamous mosquitos. Actually, it wasn't bad. There were bugs but a liberal application of OFF! seems to hold them at bay.
The site we had was A6, in the generator loop. We only ran our genset for battery charging and coffee and microwave use. Be aware that the NPS does NOT enforce the noisy generator rule (can't be over 60 decibels at 55' from campsite or something to that effect), there was a guy clear on the far side of the campground with one of those cheap construction type generators that ran it ALL DAY LONG, until 10pm. It was very loud and distracting.
The site was more or less level and asphalt paved. It backed up to the tree line which was nice.
"Wild" horses cruise throughout the campground at will. They like to hang out around the bath house for some reason.
We did not use the cold water showers or the pit toilet bathrooms.
All in all we enjoyed our 4 night stay, the beach is wonderful. You can rent kayaks bayside or sign up for a kayak tour.
I would have given this a 10 star rating if the rangers or camp host had enforced the generator noise rule.
Price reflects 50% NPS Senior Pass rate. - baraff

We had a beautiful site with excess to the bay side for swimming & kayaking. Interior roads and sites that we noticed were asphalt. All sites are dry. Bathhouses very clean but only cold running water for showers. Pit toilets only. Horses & deer make frequent visits. Park rangers make routine patrols. Campground & park great for biking and kayaking. Bayside campsites has more small tree growth which offer some shade. Good signal on our Verizon. Would certainly return again or recommend this place to anyone. - mdcamping

Very clean park. Bathrooms were clean, but primitive (only pit toilets). Showers were clean but only cold water (which actually feels great, considering you will likely get sunburned at the lovely beach!).
Sites were kept clean, though watch for the horse poo. Wild horses roam free around the park, but are not a nuisance provided you keep your food put away and watch what you cook when they are near.
Some sites are bigger than others, but all should accommodate larger rigs. Roads are all paved.
The park is minutes from Ocean City, Md. The park also has two beaches, which are kept clean and family friendly.
Zero hookups at this park.
Would definitely come back! - grim509

We had a site in the electric loop. Our hookups we in good working order, our site was huge and noticed most others the same. Interior roads and sites were asphalt. Typical beach area camping, place flat with little shade. Campsites are easy walking to the beach. Some of the new bathhouses were not yet finished and found the open bathhouses were not kept clean. Professional and friendly staff, park rangers make routine patrols. Horses make frequent visits. Campground & park great for biking and kayaking. We will return again! - mdcamping

Sites are paved asphalt and generally level, surrounded by grassy sand with many prickly pear cactus mixed in. No trees, very open layout. Very windy while we were there, and the open layout did nothing to slow down the winds. Only one loop has electric, and we were not in that loop. A pack of wild horses made a daily visit to the campground. The major downside: ticks. They were everywhere. We had to remove several from our bodies each day, and even found them after we returned home. - HabaneroMike

Where else could you go and see the wild ponies and have the Atlantic Ocean as the backdrop. We go here every year and we are impressed with the uniqueness and beauty every time. These ponies walk around the campsites and on the beach. There is only the day beach store and cafe with a small gift shop...The bike path is paved and level. They are re-doing all the bath houses as they are old and moldy. The Maryland Park police ride through frequently and there are camp host people assigned to every loop. - Winnebago Wanderers

Considering what you get for the high price, the value here is pretty good. The fees include daily access the park's water park which is great, especially for smaller children. The water park has a large kids pool with a slide play area in its center. It also includes a large water slide atop a large man made hill for bigger kids and adults and and has a large lazy river which one floats on in single or double tube inflatables. The water current is continuously moving so you can either just float around the large loop or go faster if you kick and swim in the tube. There is also a large swimming pool near the Marina and pavilion area in the main campground. Most sites have full hookups. Water electric sewer and cable access. The WiFi is either OK or terrible depending on how far you camp from a node and how crowded the park is. Another cool feature was the large dog playing area where you can set your dog free from its leash and watch him run and roam and meet new friends. They also have a good bus service to Ocean MD beaches and other attractions for only a buck. The camp store is well stocked and the roads are mostly easy to navigate with some tight spots, but this is not your worry when driving, the place literally packed with golf carts everywhere. This along with the small site sizes were my only issues with the campground, otherwise, it's a great place for the family and we've been going now four years in a row. Paid extra features include a Wild West town with a gun fight. A train robbery on a small tracked train that winds through the woods, a zip line, and a pretty decent rodeo. - DumpStation

This is a large campground with many "permanent" units. We were there on the Thursday before their Halloween weekend. Seemed as if every third camper had a golf cart, each seeing who could go the fastest. Roads on the interior were quite narrow. The access roads to sites were so narrow that our large motorhome(45 feet) had a difficult time maneuvering into a site. The first site to which we were assigned, which was at least 50 feet deep, was impossible to back into, because trees prohibited entry. Wi-fi was horrible. We will not return. - EdGuru

Our Good Sam chapter has camped at this park for the last several years, but I feel that this is the last year. The staff is quite aloof and non-responsive. When I asked for some information regarding the use of the club house for our group, the person I spoke to said she would call me back, but never did. I finally got an email response, but only after two requests. They are not flexible to special requests, like opening the club house a little earlier than usual for our group. The rates are quite high considering that we are camping in November. I think they make so much money during the summer that they just don't care, so we will move on to another venue in the future. - Wye River Rat

This campground is regularly flooded. We had water at the height of the table. Loop A and B shouldn't be available for camping. They know this situation but continue to operate it. Avoid this campground for your safety. WIFI connection is very bad. Had too take a cold shower because they were out of propane. Horrible customer service. - Floodedcamper

We stayed here for 3 weeks. It was really the only option this time of year. The lots were decent sized with sites shaded by trees. We were there for opening and Easter weekend and it was pretty party-party past quiet hours. During the week we were almost by ourselves and it was very nice. The "lake" was more like a disgusting green-poison-pond, really yucky. Playground was very nice although a little far from the sites. Also a fenced dog playground that looked nice if you have a dog. Laundry was clean and nice. Activities for the kids. - Fulltime2kids

It is a large park tucked away in tall pine trees. Great location to Rehoboth Beach and Lewes. Those are the only positives.
There are mostly permanent aging RVs here. It would be kind to call it eccletic (although I did love the tiki bars some trailers had set up outside - very retro). The RV spaces were tightly packed in by the bath-house at the rear of the park. Do not come here in a tent!! The sites are literally located in the middle of two roads and two unlucky sites were within 3' of the dump station (T9 and T10 I believe).
There appear to be many amenities - a very tiny mini-golf area, public pool... I'm sure there was more, but we didn't walk the area too extensively.
We were there in a motor home and felt safe - but not enough to leave any equipment out after dark. - DelawareChicks

There is no other way to say it, this is an aging trailer park with 17 RV sites jammed together around a bath house. We arrived after the office was closed and were met by "security" to be let into the gate and led to our site. On the way, we passed the burned out shell of a trailer. We walked around the campground with our dog, and saw quite a few 1970's vintage trailers. Some of the sites were fixed up nicely, others not so much. We had thought to stay longer and explore Lewes DE, and decided that there was nothing for us in this campground and hit the road the next day instead. We had come over on the afternoon Cape May Ferry. All of the other campgrounds in the area were already closed for the winter. This place is adequate if you have no other option. If you have a choice, choose someplace else. - ShoreXplorers

A trailer park with less than 20 transient sites crammed together next to a mosquito-producing pond in a gravel parking lot. Rude greeter at gate, no tourist info available, kids running wild, $500 reward for turning in thieves posters all over, completely unfriendly. Supposed WiFi hot spots were intermittent at best, even right next to them. And all this for $70 a night, 3 night minimum (we only needed 2). Would never stay here again. - gvljohnsons
