Nice park. Great hostess. There were a couple issues with bathrooms ( other guests making messes) when reported she was right on them, cleaning up. Pool small but very nice. Perfect for kids. Creek behind camp was awesome. Lots of fun wading and playing. My only complaint is I wish our pads were concrete and wish site had shade. Overall, a good choice when visiting the area. We camped at Big Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wonderful staff person on checking in. Sites not very attractive - gravel built up which makes surrounding land lower and gives you a big step coming out of RV. Wifi almost worthless. Cable o.k. No Verizon data. Creek nice. Small pool. Walking trail around property. We had nobody next to us so our site seemed roomy. We camped at Big Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a lovely, quiet wonderful campground. The management is so nice! The bathrooms could be cleaner: our only complaint. Our campsite was level, shady and right by a beautiful creek that my children swam in (snorkeled in!) and enjoyed immensely. It is clear with little swimming holes and pretty rocks. We drove 30 minutes to Johnsons Shut in Park: which is an incredible place! We will definitely come again! We camped at Big Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great rv park! Owners were friendly and helpful. Park sits on the bank of Big Creek in beautiful Arcadia Valley. Showers and bathrooms were super clean. Lots of things to see/do within a short distance of the park, but also lots of things to do in the park - rubber duck race, "train" rides, panning for gems, volleyball, playground, trails, swimming pool, horseshoes, arcade, and big screen TV in the meeting room (we were able to watch all of the Cardinals' games).

We will definitely be back! We camped at Big Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Real nice place in the middle of some great scenery. The hosts do a great job keeping the place clean. Large pull through sites, not much shade, but that was ok since we were there in the fall. We camped at Big Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of my favorite parks, the owners are fantastic and very friendly. The scenery of the area and around the park are lovely. On weekends they usually have duck races in the stream and a "train" for kids that is pulled by a four wheeler. There are some trails that go from the park along Big Creek, which is cool and crystal clear. The playground is fantastic and my kids love it. The wifi is VERY slow and only good for checking email. The pool is a little small but really nice and clean. It is right next to a state highway, but it is seldom traveled at night (not a lot of noise at night). The sites are packed gravel but level. There is also a picnic table provided at each site. The sewer is oddly placed at one end of the sites so make sure you have a long sewer hose. There are not many shaded sites either. I only have two negative comments... There is a train track on the other side of the creek, and most of the trains seem to come through at night. There are no close crossings but thanks to the valley the sound of the horn rings for a ways. Also, the showers are very nice and clean, but they are also the only bathrooms. If all the showers are being used, you may have to wait a LONG TIME if you need to go! I would have rated a 9 if they had just one separate bathroom with a toilet and sink. Not every camper has a toilet! We camped at Big Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate is PA rate. This is a great place for kids. Our grand kids have already requested we come back in 2014. Wonderful hosts. Level sites. Pool is great. Some of the cleanest restrooms and showers we have encountered. Plenty to do in a 30 min. radius. You have to drive a little to get to any town, but we like it that way. Can't wait to get back there this year. We camped at Big Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice intimate park. Clean and well run. The owners go out of their way to have activities on the weekends, not just for kids but for the adults as well. We have been RVing there for 3 years and it is our favorite park. One of the things that we enjoy the most is that even when the park is completely full, all of the children that are there are very well mannered and that people are so respectful of one another. You cannot camp there and not make a friend. We camped at Big Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice hosts that are trying very hard to run a good campground, too bad the location compromises the efforts. Highway on one side, trains on the other and very little shade in this former pasture. Roads and sites are gravel, but fairly good shape and level. The shower/toilets were clean, but had a very bad smell, sort of like they had been flooded with creek water or something. A good bleaching is in order IMHO. The only issue we had with the sites is the sewer dump is at the very front of the site while most RV's dump in in the middle or rear. If you intend to hook up bring 20 ft. or more of sewer hose. We will likely find other accommodations on our next trip to this area. We camped at Big Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rolled in late and called ahead of time. The friendly owners agreed to accommodate us and even stayed to greet us after closing time. On our way, they called us to be sure we were OK with directions. The pool generally closes at dark and it was dusk and they accommodated our "cabin-fevered" kids (6+ hours in the RV). The showers and laundry room were super clean! The game rooms, free firewood and change machine...Bonus! Would stay here again and fully recommend everyone to stay as well. We camped at Big Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was our second visit and we will continue to go back. The hosts are great and super friendly. The new sites are large and level, but unfortunately there aren't any trees. Luckily the weather was really nice and shade wasn't needed. Although they don't have a real "dog run," they have a 19 acre field (fenced in) that they allow dogs to run off leash, which is 100 times better than a small dog run. The pool was cool, clean, and all to ourselves, and the showers and restrooms are clean as well. They are new Good Sam's members too. We camped at Big Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had met and talked to the owners at a local RV show in St. Louis. It sounded like a very nice place, so we decided to go there and brought some friends with us. The directions we were given on the brochure were spot on. No problems finding the place at all. When we arrived, both owners were very welcoming, checked us in quickly and provided a lot of useful information on the park and surrounding area. The park was clean and laid out very nice. Each site has full-hook up and are very level, so it didn't take long at all to get set up. Most are back-in sites, but they also have a good number of pull-thru sites. There were very large motorhomes staying there and having enough room was not an issue at all. Our stay was in July 2012 and it was pretty hot and had been for quite some time, so the Big Creek that runs behind the park was pretty low, but not too low to stop the Saturday afternoon duck races! After riding our motorcycles most of the day, the pool was very refreshing. And, sitting by the campfire that evening (using the free firewood they provide) was very enjoyable. They have four very clean bathrooms. Each one is private and contains a sink, toilet and shower. We didn't have a single complaint and enjoyed our stay very much. I'm sure we'll be going back again! Thanks to Patty & Craig for their wonderful hospitality! It's very apparent you love what you do. =o> We camped at Big Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Cute campground with a good foundation to become a destination site. The bathroom set up was great, with each facility having a private stall and shower, truly unique! They have some young trees planted that will grow into providing more shade. The owners were very friendly and even gave me a toiletry bag when I realized I'd left ours at home!

The owners of the RV park are the very best and do what it takes to make your visit pleasurable. They are very wonderful people. Great little stream borders the park, very nice meeting room. Park is clean and family oriented. Nearby there are a lot of things to do and ask where the locals buy their beef and smoked meats. Best steaks I have ever eaten.

This was our first trip to this area and we found this RV Park. It was a 10++ The owners are great! The location is super and accessible to several state parks and small towns and a couple of Wal-Marts. They are also installing a swimming pool that will be ready for summer. There is a creek that runs by the place to fish in. Lots of amenities here. We are definitely going to be return customers, coming from the other side of the state. I would recommend this to everyone. Also we took a horseback trail ride at a place called the Arcadia Valley stables that was great and highly recommendable. Not far from this RV Park. Don't miss these places. We camped at Big Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
