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.

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.

very quiet park, friendly staff, 2 dog walking areas, cement pads and easy access, we would definitely stay here again. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Bring gnat protection. Those tiny bugs leave you with painfull bites.

This park is a gem. This is our third year staying here and we find it to be one of the friendliest, best maintained parks we ever stayed in. Can't wait to go back for a longer stay. All of the sites are paved and most are pull through. There is beautiful landscaping and the roads are paved. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a state park practically across the street, beaches are nearby and pretty old downtown St Mary's.

Rate is based on a monthly rate. The water pressure does tend to vary throughout the day but 40 PSI seems to be the lowest it goes. Electric is metered at $.13/Kwh for long term stays. Electric is rock solid at 120V. No cable and Sat TV can be a bit challenging. OTA channels are good...approximately 20. No pool or other kid friendly amenities. Pads are all concrete/level and the roads are all paved. Some sites are better than others and if you intend to stay for an extended time try to get an end site (#22 & #23) are the best in my opinion. Campground is quiet at night and yes there are chickens and Jasmine (owner's dog) wandering about but they generally stay around the office. Bathrooms are Unisex and have always been spotless.

This was my second stay at A Big Wheel RV Park. I stayed three months at a monthly rate of $375 plus electric. The owner makes you feel like a member of the family with a Sunday night pot luck dinner and games nights on Tues and Thurs. The park is usually very busy in the winter, so make your reservations early. Our site was a back-in, although most sites are pull-thrus. All sites are on concrete pads with a patio and picnic table. The park is well landscaped with abundant trees and bushes, although there is plenty of room for parking etc., and even though I was in the back of the park, I still had a clear view for Direct TV. All of the utilities worked as expected and were well placed. Wifi is offered and was available with a strong signal. A Big Wheel RV Park offers a true sense of community without being pushy, something that is sometimes missing in RV parks these days. St. Marys offers plenty of nearby shopping and diversified entertainment and cultural opportunities. I will definitely stay at A Big Wheel again. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Jacksonville, FL and Fernandina Beach are 45 mins. Okeefenokee swamp is an hour away. Savannah, GA is 100 miles.

Actually, this is a decent RV park, but after reading the rules of the park, I was surprised to see the owners' dog running free on the property, several cats and at least 15 chickens running around. The chickens were the most annoying as the rooster was crowing right outside of our window at 6:30 in the morning. One of the joys of being retired and traveling is not having to get up before 0800 in the morning, so it was particularly annoying and we were glad to leave and no, we will not be returning there.

We stayed in the park for 3 nights so we could see the area. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The sites are paved and level with room for much bigger rigs than ours. Even though the park is an older one, it is clean and well maintained. We would stay here again. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice park with one very gracious owner. We were treated more like family than someone passing through and told to pick any site we wanted. We joined in the potluck Sunday the day we got in, even though I do not particularly like them. There was only 5 people, good food grilled hot dogs and chicken legs cooked by the owner and friendly gathering worth the short walk to the club house. Rate does not include taxes so rate is closer to $30. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Good clean park near submarine base, was nice for overnight stay. Across road from State Park. Nice level concrete pads, lots of shade trees, small fishing pond. No satellite reception possible for most sites. Would stay again. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a first class park! A real gem. From the moment we called for a quik o'nite stay, to the moment we left, the hospitality was supreme. Clean, quiet, well kept. Level concrete pads, well placed hook-ups. Easy drive-around and pull thrus. Don't be fooled by the 'rustic' appearing entry. The park inside is very, very, nice!!

We used our Passport America membership and the average rate per night worked out to be $25. We stayed four nights and loved it. It was a very nice park with paved roads and big concrete pads and patios. We could have a fire and just relax. The owners were friendly and the gave us lots of good ideas about things to do while in St. Mary's. Although we didn't go to the Sunday night pot luck, we did feel welcome. We would definitely stay at this park again in the future. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here four months so we got to know a whole lot about this park. The rate shown reflects the monthly price with electricity being an extra charge which for us normally was about $75 per month on average. Make sure you keep your receipts to alleviate any disputed electrical charges during your stay. There is a $50 electricity deposit upon check-in, as well. Make no mistake about it; this is a real nice RV park. All of the hookups were adequate as expected, and the large concrete pads in most spaces are some of the best we have ever parked on. The roads throughout the park are paved with asphalt and are real nice. There is a beautiful pond on site that has catch and release fishing. There is a laundromat for you as well. The park; however, has a number of things that need attention. The WiFi is very slow to nonexistent. Our Verizon signal; however, was a great 4G one so our phones and MiFi device worked very well for internet. This park has poor grounds and clubhouse maintenance that needs attention. The whole place could do with a good cleanup, but they have nobody responsible for those tasks. So they rely upon unpaid volunteers from the ranks of their paying customers to accomplish them. I myself pruned many of the trees in the park so that RVs could make it down the park roads and into their parking spaces. I also joined with others to put in flower beds and remove much of the tangle of weeds in the park. They really do need to retain a work camper to do the work that needs to be done here. The tree cover in the park is so heavy that it may be difficult to obtain a satellite signal from your provider in some spaces. In some cases, you may be able to cure the problem with some tree pruning. Local TV is available from your crank up antenna if you can’t get a satellite. There is no cable TV available here. For those who enjoy potlucks lucks, there is one on Sunday evening.. Propane is available in this park. There is plenty to do with Crooked River State Park close by and lots of historical sites and beautiful beaches nearby. As you can see, we have rated a large number of parks so we must compare this park with other parks we have rated. We might stay here again if we happened to be in the area. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Motorhome.

This RV Park is a hidden gem! Whereas it is not a really Big Park, the sites are level and nice, with a good amount of space between each, and plenty of room for parking your vehicles. The location was just Perfect for us to go to Cumberland Island for a day. It is another hidden Gem and also approx. 45 min to Jekyl Island. The Biggest Plus about this park is the Owner and Staff and how friendly and accommodating they are! They have s Saturday night pot luck dinner which the Park Owner practically puts on entirely on her own (very generous). Laundry room was sufficient and easy to access and inexpensive compared to many places I've been. Will Definitely be back to visit more sites in the area!
