This is a brand new resort! All of the amenities are top notch and the staff are super friendly.
The sites are wide plus most of the sites have an extra spot for another vehicle. - ETCTA

Minimum 3 night stay policy. 35 minutes to Rehoboth Beach with no traffic, much longer with traffic. Many times no one picks up phone, have to leave voicemail for callback. Online chat, very long for someone to reply. Wifi is terrible, not workable. Our site was pretty level. Speedy checkin did not work, still had to wait in line inside to checkin. Pool size was actually decent. Dog beach was great, just watch out for biting horse flies. 2 hour private pontoon boat rental $203 was excellent. $99 1 hour jet ski rental available too, all onsite. $65 for golf cart per day. No water shuttle to Rehoboth Beach. Very large camp store. Nice concierge desk. Every site had a second driveway for car or truck. - univmd

We prepaid for express check in and that didn't work. We had reserved a golf cart which was supposed to be on our site and was not there. We went to get the cart and had to wait 20 minutes for a key. The next day a second cart showed up which we did not need. The layout of the park is terrible. The parking lot at the office is so down hill you cannot unhook your tow vehicle so you have to unhook on the road before backing in. For being a new campground the sites are not very level. The turn at the gate coming in is so sharp you must go around the block to access your site. - queeniegirl

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
Jul 2016 - $70.00
This is a nice membership park and sometimes they have room for the general public at a very expensive price of $70. Back in sites are at a tight right angle, some near the water, some with cement pads. All have very good hookups, including cable for newer TV's. Be very aware of the "not-before-2PM" check in time as they are strict and you will wait outside the attended park gate until 2. You need to request a rest rooms key and pay a $20 refundable deposit. The restrooms/showers were clean. There is an additional fee to use the pool. There is lovely landscaping and a trash can at each site. We did like it, but we would look for something more affordable if in the area again. - R&S

This is a private C2C resort and located on a water access Marina. The resort is located at the end of a private road. They have many social activities. - A hitch and hop

The lot was level and wooded, with a view of the bay. The pool was not opening until Saturday even though the temperature was in the 90s on Thursday and Friday. A key to the bathhouse is available for a returnable deposit. The park was clean and nicely landscaped. I would gladly return to this park. - lynette47

My husband and I are retired full-time RVers from S. CA traveling the USA in a 24' travel trailer. We reserved our 1-night stay online. No clubs, no discounts. The staff is not that friendly. This is an old-seen-better-days park mainly comprised of permanent houses, cabins, trailers, etc. Half are nice and half are dilapidated. The park is on a large pretty bay. We stayed here because we needed to be close to the Cape May-Lewes Ferry. We wouldn't stay here again. - daviescj

Narrow interior roads paved/gravel with some tight turns. I had to back up cause we couldn't go around one block. Sites grass/dirt. Level with fair spacing, shaded, and VG Verizon coverage. Needed extensions for electric and sewer. Park is quiet and owners very helpful. Primarily seasonal with a few campsites near the front. Not bad as a home base for the beaches of Bethany (about 10 min) and Dewey. Site 272 is fairly good. There is a marina and a very small bay side beach. - FreeWheeler
Jul 2008 - $45.00
This campground is on the bay side of Bethany. It is about 2 miles to Bethany Beach. This campground has no facilities but a really good grocery and hardware store is nearby. There is also a small RV store nearby. The sunsets over the bay are spectacular! - home on wheels

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
May 2016 - $43.00
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
Jul 2016 - $62.00
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
Jun 2013 - $70.00
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
Aug 2015 - $79.00
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
Jun 2013 - $59.00
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
May 2015 - $23.00
We stayed for four nights, since the campground had a special for May-buy 2 nights, get 2 free. Sites are large and level and grassy. We were not given a list of rules, such as what to do with our garbage. We used the showers and restrooms, which were clean, but no shelves in the shower to put soap, etc. and only one hook for towels. Showers were cleaned @ 7:00 AM, so don't plan on taking an early shower.
Pools were not open, but no sign indicated this.
Overall, we felt like we were treated like we were in the way. They mowed one day and the mower came awfully close to our things at our trailer. It's a good thing I stood out there so he didn't get any closer. They also shut the water off and didn't tell us. Wi-Fi was down for two days. The store was closed at odd hours. We had to go and get the lady in the office to get a bag of ice. I'm pretty sure she saw us, but didn't respond until we came to get her.
This may be an OK campground during the summer season. - Geezer traveler

This is the second time I have camped here. It is a very clean and friendly park. The only drawback is that there isn't any cable TV for rainy days. But, we are camping so I can live with that. The seasonal people are very friendly. There is a great playground for the kids. Also 2 dog parks. Several, easy drive, miles from the crowded shore area. A real gem in southern Delaware. - Chief15
Jul 2014 - $50.00
This is a clean campground with a very friendly and helpful staff. We used this park as a one-night-stand, and didn't use really any of the park amenities, so I can't accurately comment on those. However, they had a nice playground area for the kids, nice looking pool, and a water-soak area for the kiddos to play in. There's a lot of seasonal residents, but the few we encountered were friendly enough. The transient sites are pull-throughs and are LONG! My rig is almost 60' bumper to bumper hooked-up, and I swear I could've fit a car in front and in back of us once we were pulled in. I can't imagine even the longest of rigs not fitting into one of these sites. These sites are a little narrow perhaps, though we didn't have anyone on either side of us (those sites that were occupied were staggered so as not to unnecessarily crowd each other - kudos!). These sites are wide open, so no trees or shade - maybe a downer for long, hot summer days. But for those who have satellite TV, I can't imagine reception issues. The sites are all grass in this area, and a LITTLE sandy, but not overtly so. We didn't go into the camp store (got there after it closed and left before it opened) so can't comment on that, sorry. Nice pavilion near the front gate and seems like they have some good activities. This park gets good marks for cleanliness, well maintained, long pull-through sites, and helpful staff. The park itself is out in the middle of farmland, so if you're wanting a campground close to the "action", this probably isn't your place. But if you want to be 15-20 minutes from the DE shoreline, and away from the crowds, this is a great option. - User3768
Aug 2015 - $98.00
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
Jun 2014 - $65.00
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
Jul 2013 - $80.00
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
May 2015 - $38.00
We camped here about five years ago and liked it but since then the cost of staying at a Delaware State Park without hookups ($38) is unreal especially for an out of state camper. Considering that the parking RV sites are all on the loop roads with one's picnic table, fire pit and tenting sites in the woods next to it. Most sites have water but no other hookups. We stayed one night and only one bathroom was open but the campground closed down the next day so that they could bring in modular bathhouses to update the other three. Our bathhouse was clean, had showers but old and needed updating. What this campground has going for it is location, bike trails, beaches, great friendly check in hosts and it is near the Cape May Ferry. Some great bike trails! The loop roads need to be repaved most of them are buckling and it is hard to get an RV level. We would not stay here again except for taking the Cape May Ferry! - gsnakehill

This park is very near the Lewes-Cape May ferry. Lovely, peaceful campground. No hookups except water. No generators--hooray. Dump station. Parking is parallel on the blacktop street next to sandy shaded sites. Spacious sites have picnic tables and fire pits. The park was an Army base during WW2 and there are many historical sites to tour including barracks, bunkers, and towers overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Well-marked trails and bike paths.Robust single stream recycling. Off season registration is unbelievably stupid, dysfunctional and illogical. We watched carefully for registration signs as we entered the park, did see an office building on the right, but no registration signs. Pulled straight ahead to a manned building on the entrance road. The person there instructed us to go past the building, then make 3 left turns which took us to the front of the office building, no place to park a rig, and no signs. A staff person walking by motioned to make two right turns--then there was a place to park and walk to the entrance of the office building where we were told that we must first visit the campground and choose a site, then return to office to register. Registration process took 45 minutes. - meanderingman

We stayed in Loop "C" which is close to the main restroom/shower facility. All the loops looked pretty much identical. The campground is very convenient to the State Fair and Harrington Slots and Raceway. All the sites were very wooded and had nice space in between sites so you aren't up on your neighbor. W/E sites and a dump station near the entrance of the CG. There was a mix of Class A to tents in our loop. We used the water park one day and the kids had fun there. The nature center is new and there are well marked trails and bike paths around the lake. The CG and park are very well maintained. For $25, it is the best campground for the money! we will be back! - whodey
