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. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sites all have a concrete pad large enough to accommodate your RV and awning area. There are full hook ups and tent sites. All roads are paved and well drained. There are a lot of trees so satellite reception may be spotty. This park does not have cable. This is a very nice, quiet campground. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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