Cheapest stay in proximity to Atlanta. Quiet and well-kept. Tight and hilly access. This park has a separate area marked 'extended camping,' but I believe most of the units throughout are there for at least the season, if not the year, or decade. They have a few pull-thru spots for overnight use. We stayed for the month with 50amp FHUs. Price includes tax and electric. Our site was a nightmare to get into. It was by far the most difficult backward maneuvering I've done in my 5 months of full time travel so far. A local park resident was summoned by the park host to help me achieve this maneuver. He suggested that I pull forward and then back the trailer at a 90-degree angle, up a steep hill, and then cut it the opposite 90-degree angle to get into the site. It was a 'Z' maneuver, but with a steep hill with several trees and large rocks in the middle. It took a while, and I broke one of the support wheels under my rear bumper because the incline was so steep, but we eventually got the trailer parked. There is a laundry room onsite with 2 washers and 2 dryers. Bathrooms 'close' at 7pm, but we didn't use them anyway. No Wifi. 2 bars Verizon LTE. Easy access to I-20. Several travel stops/restaurants nearby, including two 24hr restaurants. We camped at Big Oak RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

If they tell you that you have to back up in a "Z" pattern up a steep hill, ask for a new site.

We chose this park for an overnight because it was so close to our route and inexpensive, but the roads were narrow and steep; steep enough our braking system in the towed locked up; overnight pull through was just barely big enough for our motorhome and tow; parked right next to a fairly busy highway with fast traffic. Park was clean and well kept. Our site for the motorhome was level. Would be a good place for a smaller RV. We camped at Big Oak RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is within l mile of I20 and close to several restaurants and fuel stations. The park is filled with long term people. We called and made a reservation for a 50 amp 2 days prior to arrival. There appears to be only 3 or 4 spots for transits and not every spot is 50 amp. We were here for 2 nights, had a pull through but the roads are narrow and the spot was up a steep incline so we disconnected before attempting to pull the home and tow up the hill. The lady in the office was very nice. They accept cash and check only. They did charge us $2 extra when we went to retrieve our car from our nearby friends' home but that was ok. We are right next to the highway but our well insulated rig heard no road noise. We would stay here again but don't show up without a reservation.. We camped at Big Oak RV Park in a Motorhome.

The Georgia Diner just on the other side of I20 is a great place to have breakfast anytime or southern lunch with meat and veggies. They open at 6 am and close at 10. Exit 5 in Talapoosa, GA. We drove 17 miles over to Carrollton, GA which is the home of West Georgia University and has great shopping and a viable downtown.

Very narrow, paved roads entering and older RV park. One of there phone lines actually struck something on top of my rig. Found a pull through and it barely fit my 40' MH and toad. All of the pull through sites are on the small side. Leveled up, put the slides out, hooked up to the 30 amp power and my power management system immediately sensed a brown out condition and started the generator. We packed up and left. Won't go back. We camped at Big Oak RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very near I-20. Perhaps too close. Interstate noise could be heard from our site. The rate was low. If what you're looking for is a safe place to spend the night, this is a good choice. No restaurants or shopping nearby that we know of. We camped at Big Oak RV Park in a Motorhome.

DIRECTIONS: I-20 exit 5, North 0.2 miles on SR 100, turn right into RV Park. A very nice small RV Park. There are about 6 sites set aside for overnighters. The rest are for long term stays. 2 sites are suitable for 40' rigs towing a car or trailer. The other 4 will handle a 30' towing a car or 40' if you unhook. Very nice owner and a nice place for overnight or longer term stay. As stated in earlier reports, the paved interior road is narrow, but I went slow and careful with my 40 footer towing a car and didn't have a problem. I could not find a website for the RV Park. A great place to spend the night traveling E or W on I-20. For the $19, I would have been hard pressed to park at Wal-Mart overnight and run my generator in the 98 degree heat for much less. We camped at Big Oak RV Park in a Motorhome.

Quiet, pristine park with a very friendly and helpful owner. Hilly location and narrow road may be a challenge to some. Two, big rig overnight pull-throughs are easy to get into/out of, but are so close together that slide-out issues may arise. Laundry and toilets/showers were extremely clean. We camped at Big Oak RV Park in a Motorhome.

VERY hilly location, but pretty. Small (and few) sites available. It would be hard to squeeze in a very large rig, but our Suburban pulled our 26 ft. trailer carefully into place and all was well. All sites are cemented or otherwise paved and overall the place was spartan, but well cared-for. Good clean showers. We'd stop here again for an overnighter. We camped at Big Oak RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Good campground if you're stopping overnight, it is clean and quiet. Getting into the park is tight, especially if you're pulling a tow behind. The office is at the exit instead of the entrance to the park as we're accustom to. Would stay here again if ever passing through the area. We camped at Big Oak RV Park in a Motorhome.

We arrived on Saturday afternoon after having called ahead for a reservation. No one was in the office (not that we knew where the office was in the park). Previous reviews we had read told us about the narrow roadway so we were not surprised. We drove in and stopped to call the office on our cell phone. All we got was an answering machine. Another camper came out and suggested an area where we could park. We proceeded up another hill and found a large area with side by side sites. It was open and we proceeded to get set up. Later in the day I called the office again and found the manager in. I went into the office and discovered that in fact the manager had set a cone with our name on it in a site where we could have parked. She was fine with us where we were parked and we stayed for two nights. A very nice park, very quiet even though Highway 100 was right behind us. We would highly recommend the park and we will definitely stay again if in that area. Easy turn off from Interstate 20 and located less than a mile north. We camped at Big Oak RV Park in a Motorhome.

If you are looking for a place to pull over for the night, this is fine. Otherwise, move on. It is a bunch of grass/gravel sites. We camped up in the 40's section and were probably about 3 feet from our neighbor, if that far. It was nice that we didn't have to unhook. The park was relatively quite, despite being next to a busy road. Some of the roads are narrow and steep. Lots of rules and you have to pay extra for kids! We camped at Big Oak RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A nice park almost halfway between Atlanta and Birmingham. Easy on/off to I-20 and good pull thru spots for overnighters. No amenities close, so plan accordingly. I use this park 7 - 8 times per year as a safe, clean overnight spot. We camped at Big Oak RV Park in a Motorhome.

OK for an overnighter. Narrow, but paved, entry road. Mostly paved pull-thrus and close to level. Walking distance to small grocery. Pull-thrus are narrow, but accessible. We camped at Big Oak RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed long term at the monthly rate. Wal-mart & other major shopping is in Bremen, less than a 10 min drive. Very close to exit, so easy to stop in for night or two. Diesel/ RV friendly fuel available close by. We camped at Big Oak RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
