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. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

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 camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

We stayed at this campground for two months. It is attractive, well laid out, and convenient for a long stay. All the facilities were very clean. The owners respond to all problems immediately. We were on a gravel site in the "overflow" section and it required minimal leveling and slight adjustment with the utilities. But, the trade-off was a quiet shady site that contributed to sleeping late. It is the best place to eat in the county (the Sunday pot lucks). The rest of the week there is a good choice of affordable restaurants and three supermarkets about 10 miles away. Abundant day trips are possible using this as home base. The rate is Passport although the monthly rate was less. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

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!!

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.

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.

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!

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 stayed here one night on our way to Florida for the winter. The park is easily accessible from I-95 yet far enough away for peace and quiet. The park was very peaceful. The owners are very friendly with lots of information about the local area. The owners host a pot luck every Sunday where they provide the entree and the campers provide the sides and drinks. They also sell firewood and ice at the office. The interior roads are paved and in excellent condition. The sites are concrete, level and very large. There are picnic tables and fire rings provided at the sites. The community room, where the pot luck is held, is nice and large. There are large washers and dryers on site. The restrooms are private rooms. They are large with big tiled showers and are spotless. There is a lake on site that is nicely landscaped. Fishing is allowed on a catch and release basis. Bass can be kept though. WiFi strength is excellent. We received plenty of clear TV channels with our antenna. The rate I listed represents a Passport America rate. We plan to come back here and stay longer in the future. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nightly rate is based on monthly rate, which does not include electric. We were there for close to 3 months. This was a terrific park! As other reviewers have stated, all roads are paved and all sites have paved parking pads. Every site has a picnic table. Each also had an exterior light at the electric box. Some sites are shaded and some aren't. The location, just across the road from Crooked River State Park, was perfect for walking/hiking and bicycle riding. Every Sunday at 5:00 the owners hosted a potluck, providing the meat. It was great for meeting and getting to know others in the park. The owners were helpful and friendly. The laundry machines were large and reasonably priced. We very much enjoyed staying here and would stay there again if we were going to be in the area again.

We stopped for an overnight stay heading north out of Florida and again on the return trip home. We try to use Passport America for overnight stops rather than truck stops or Walmart. We saw good reviews so thought it worth the few mile drive off I-95 and were glad we did. The owners are very friendly and live on site. The bathrooms were clean, as was the entire property. All roads are nicely paved asphalt while the pads are concrete and level. Our first night stay was in steady rain so we were glad to have the paved roads and site. The second night was beautiful weather and we got a much better view of the whole property and it is really nice. There is a mix of shaded and more open sites and most were pull through with some of those being quite long so the toad can stay attached. We will stay hear again when traveling I-95 in the future.

We stayed here for a month, very reasonable rates and super friendly owners. Clean sites, nice property. They have Sunday pot luck dinner every week. They provide the meat and drinks everyone brings a dish. It's a nice way to meet the neighbors. We loved it here and would definitely return. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I arrived Sunday for a 1 night layover with my two dogs after the Sunday dinner hour but was immediately invited for a meal. The pull-in site was shaded, flat, and easy hookup. Owners are very friendly, offering help as needed. Propane refill on premises. Clean restroom/shower with handicap accommodation. Only 5 miles from I-95 at Exit 1 or Exit 3. I will use them whenever I need to break up a long trip. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
