Stayed there for a year as a seasonal camper. Other campers were very nice and this place has a lot of potential. The campground store is never open with no posted hours, the playground equipment is old and outdated, sand burrs all over the beach, no family activities. Every Sunday they would go around and pump out the Black tanks on the campers and then dump the sewage back in the woods (Sewer sites were available but capped by the health department). The following Saturday the same truck would be spraying the roads to keep the dust down, disgusting! We camped at Big Sandy Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We are seasonal campers and this is the second summer we have been at Big Sandy. We love the Oak Openings Region. Beautiful birds, quiet atmosphere. The daughters have taken over the maintenance of the grounds and have made the camping experience even better. The swimming pond is awesome. We don't fish but have heard it is a great time. The management is really making an awesome attempt at creating a great experience for young and old! Love it!! We camped at Big Sandy Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The new management has the camp store open and now there is a large variety to chose from when shopping. The store is open later in the evening. Always ice cream and snacks for the kids, ice for the adults. I shower in my camper but had to go to the shower house one afternoon and the women's shower house was spotless. I will advise that there are a few people who did not have a good experience in the past but things have changed and I guarantee that you will not regret your experience.

My family of 6 from Northern Indiana, has stayed here for 2 months strait while my husband has been working out of Toledo. We love it here. Awesome staff, very helpful and always with a smile! The campground setting is absolutely beautiful. Two big ponds with an abundance of fish; my husband and kids fished almost every night! The beach for swimming is always clean and the kids love spending time there! I would recommend this campground to anyone, we will definitely be returning for future stays! We camped at Big Sandy Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The town Swanton is only a few miles down the road, A Kroger and Dollar general for most everything you need.

The staff owner was great. Had a flat tire he came and inflated and recomended a shop close to fix it. Very quiet campground, will stay there again when in the area. We camped at Big Sandy Campground in a Travel Trailer.

30 amp and water only. There is a dump on the way out, but it is on the wrong side of the road. Trees need to be trimmed. We scratched the side of our rig getting into one of their "big rig" sites. 90% of their sites are used for seasonal or long-term people. Most of these rigs are going nowhere, ie: rotted tires, roofs caved in, etc. We will not return. We camped at Big Sandy Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very accommodating owners; son & dw-in-law taking over from dad (hopefully). Seasonal, daily or weekly rates: pay for 6, get 7th night free. High water table means you cannot use sewer dump after recent rains: gotta wait a couple days for the septic system to catch up. Very pleasant place, large sites out front, easy access for large rigs. We camped at Big Sandy Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is not a bad campground, with large, level, grass sites, although a little high priced for what you get. We like to have Wi-Fi and, although they say they have it, it doesn't work, either at your site or at the office. When I asked the owner about the Wi-Fi he showed me a modem in the office, but didn't seem to have a clue about how it works or how to get on. We camped at Big Sandy Campground in a Motorhome.
