This campground is a quiet gem. Friendly and helpful owner and host. The rows are paved and that is nice to keep the sand out of your camper. The park is tidy. Very good Wi-Fi experience in site no. 1. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Big Wheel is a good location to visit the charming town of St. Mary and the ferry to Cumberland Island. Fernandia Beach and Amelia Island are convenient to the campground too. The campground is located very near Crooked Creek State park. You can ride a bike to the park which is delightful to stop in the Nature Center.

I am moving to the area and called the campground to see about staying while my family and I search for a home but I was told "We don't do kids". No where did I find this place to be listed as a seniors campground but was told it is. Even on here it is listed as family friendly. I asked why they discriminate against kids and was told they just don't want them around. I will be glad to take my money someplace else and I will be sure to let my friends know. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed four nights. We had a concrete pull-through site with a patio and picnic table. Somewhat more space and privacy than a lot of similar parks. There was a lot of space inside the park that was not used for RV parking and lots of trees and native plants. Also a number of small fields and a pond. Great for the dog. Yes there were couple of roosters, and they did start crowing about 4:30 AM. If you are a light sleeper you might need earplugs. The owner was very helpful and friendly. No cable TV. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Motorhome.

This Park has a great location. Close to Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach, the Okefenokee national wildlife refuge and Cumberland Island. We visited all three and they were great, especially Cumberland Island.

We stayed at this park for a week and had a fantastic time. The park is clean and the staff is friendly. The only complaint I had were the roosters! The park has free-range chickens, and the rooster starts crowing at about 4 am and doesn't stop until the sun comes up. Sleep with a fan by your head or bring some ear plugs, because I was woken up early for the first few days.

Our dogs loved the fenced in dog park at the back of the property. They could run around and play off leash, which was very nice. The laundry and the restrooms were very clean, and we had no problem getting packages delivered to the park.

There is a small bar just steps away from the park. We went there one night and met the locals and got some great recommendations about what to do in the area (which I will share with you in the tip section!) We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a fine time in this area.
DO NOT MISS CUMBERLAND ISLAND! We took the 11:45 ferry out and the 4:45 ferry back. This was plenty of time to see the Dungeness Ruins and walk the beach. If it had been warmer, I would have taken the earlier ferry and spent all day on the beach. It really was breathtaking.

This is a nice clean tropical feeling RV resort. It is not a campground. Office staff was friendly. People staying in the park were great! All hookups worked well. Sites are a little close together and no privacy between sites. We didn't use the showers but from what I saw they were clean and safe. There are some very tight turns in this campground. Easy to find. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at the park for 6 days. We had planned on staying at another park that we had used in the past but it was full. So called this park and was accommodated with a large site and friendly service. Would stay here again. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly office staff. Passport America rate. Spent 1 night just passing thru. Would consider this park for a longer stay. Transient sites are about 65' long. Tree branches need trimmed. Wifi worked well for FB and email. Picked up a couple antenna channels. Water pressure was fine. Roosters crowed a bit early. A fee park cats visited, but were not a nuisance. Exiting may require big rigs to take a tour of the park to get out. Some turns are tighter than others. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

An overnight stop for traveling I95, we have used this campground before and like it. Always prefer to use the Passport America parks rather than Walmarts, truck stops, etc. whenever possible. Nice people run the park and the sites are level concrete while interior roads are asphalt and nice. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Motorhome.

Easy to find and easy in and out. Paved inner roads. Pull Thru was FHU with level concrete pad with patio. Wide and long enough for our 40' motorcoach with a tow and two slides. Mature trees and shrubbery between spacious sites for privacy. Patio area with picnic table. Nice areas to walk dogs. No litter, trash or dog waste. Nice responsible pet owners who pick up. Pond with fountain and catch and release. Great way to unwind from a day on the road or from sightseeing/eating/shopping in St. Marys.

Loved the free range chickens and had no problems with crowing that others have mentioned. Maybe our rig is better insulated. We heard there is a great pot luck on the weekends and card games during the week for those who love to meet others and swap stories. Whether you like that, or you just want to chill out, the campground is wonderfully relaxing and peaceful. You won't regret giving them a call and staying here. We will be back again.

This CG is well off the beaten path. The roads are paved and the sites are concrete. The roads are narrow and even though we requested a pull through for 1 night, we had to disconnect. The layout would not allow me to pull into my site with my tow. The wifi was very weak even though we could see the antenna. This park is NOT big rig friendly.

There seemed to be a lot of long termers and they were not very friendly. Although there is a Passport America members sign, we did not get a discount. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was our third snowbird winter at this park. Why? It is an extremely comfortable park. Most sites are level concrete separated by trees and other plants. The owner and staff are attentive and the Sunday (and holiday) potlucks are great. Restrooms/showers are very good. There are no-see-ums, and some have problems with the free-range chickens. We think it is part of the charm. Price is lower than northern Florida parks and the weather is much the same. The park is generally full in the winter so call first. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The park is a great home base for visiting Georgia's coastal islands and Florida from Amelia Island to St. Augustine. Okefenokee NWR is about an hour away. Walmart and two grocery stores are a 15 minute drive. Jacksonville has everything. Good variety of affordable restaurants in Kingsland/St. Marys.

My husband and I recently stayed at this park in transit for a few nights. We found the park to be very quaint and the owner is extremely accommodating and friendly. A diamond in the rough really! All of the conveniences that we look for in a park were met. Reasonable prices, clean, quiet, private. The sites are all full-hookup with nice level concrete pad and picnic table with fire ring. Lovley trees and natural landscaping. This is also a Passport America park. We would for sure stay here again. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is conveniently located from I-95 (about a 10 minute ride). All shopping and convenience stores are about 5-10 minutes away. Downtown St. Mary's, GA I describe as walking into a Norman Rockwell painting. It is a charming harbour town.

We chose this campground based on other reviews. We would not classify this as a "gem". Roosters crowing at 5:30 am and running wild had our dog on high alert and shaking the whole time. Neighbors sewer connection was almost on our concrete. Very small place and although there were lots of RVs, not many people. Will not be back. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Fernandina Beach is less than an hour away. Beautiful beach, great restaurants, plenty of varieties of boats to charter in all price ranges. We paid $28 each for a 2 hour sunset cruise that took us around Cumberland Island and down the coast past Ft. Clinch and the state park. It was BYOB and had live entertainment. Dogs were welcome so our Murphy had his first sea-going experience. Great fun!

Nice park in a very pretty setting. Workers are friendly and seem to be always doing something to make the park better. Good access to naval base, has small dog park on site but there is a better one on base. Had a level paved site with convienient hookups. No cable but wi-fi was dependable during my 10 day stay. Most sites are pull-thru and had a mix of snow birds and over nighters. Pot luck on Sunday afternoons. Bring deet as there were some pretty hungry gnats during our visit. I would definitely stay here again if in area. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
