We arrived after hours and for some reason the park owners insisted on meeting us and leading us in ( I think so they could collect their money). They asked us what year our rv was for some reason, but when we got there we noticed more 70 and 80 model units there than newer ones. They parked us in the middle of a field. The hookups were placed so far away that we had to go buy extensions for everything. There is no dumpster on site and the website advertises that they have trailer side trash pickup. We were informed that we are responsible for our own trash and not to leave it outside!! They don't have a laundromat on site either so be prepared to find one. We were there during the rain so the rv floor got filthy from all of the mud! I would not recommend this park, they totally over sell it on their website. We camped at Big Cypress Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
While this site was roomy and quiet, the roads were rough and needed graded. We had convenient hookups for a toy hauler. There are no trees for the RV sites, and the ground is very sandy, but the scenery is pretty. We never could find the trash dumpster, but a call to the owner would have taken care of that. We arrived late to check in due to two blowouts in the extreme heat. We felt our hostess was in a hurry to be paid rather than showing us some hospitality. If I were the owner, I hopefully would have been gracious enough to let the campers settle in and settle up in the morning. We stayed a week, and the rest of our stay was pleasant.

Nice park. It is definitely off the beaten trail. Beautiful lake with lots of Cypress trees and geese. Peaceful and quiet. It is small with not a lot of amenities but if you like the country this is your park. It is about 10 minutes to Conway and another 15 - 20 minutes to the beaches. The owner was very nice and met us there after hours and on a holiday weekend. We will definitely go back. We camped at Big Cypress Lake Campground in a Motorhome.
Don't go by looking at the pictures from the web site. Nothing to do in the immediate area. No shade trees around for the larger trailers. Sites facing the lake are to small for the larger trailers/fifthwheels. We camped at Big Cypress Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The website was done very professionally but very misleading. It was difficult to find and disappointing on arrival. Sits out in the middle of nowhere. Most residents are labor type of workers and gives one a very un-secure feeling. Check out the Williams RV mobile home park on the NE side of Conway. The parks in and close to MB are strictly for rich weekend or short time campers. Rates are close to renting a motel room when you consider all of the other costs, gas, RV and insurance payments etc. Hope this is helpful. Stay safe on the highways.

We paid for a month $450.00 for a 36' fifth wheel and left after 4 nights. The web site picture looks much better than the actual campground. We were the only real campers in our area, the others staying were working people that started their trucks at 4:30AM and let them idle for 20 minutes before leaving for work. We were told we'd get used to it by the owners. We camped at Big Cypress Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for 2 months. It's a private property campground that is being shared with Mobile home leasing and more seemed to come in every week. The 'lake' or swamp more like it, is only accessible from one side. Rigs on the other side have to drive around to access the lake but are still charged the same price. The owners are mean and rude and change the rules according to whatever mood they are in. They have a list of strict rules a mile long that they force you to sign when you register and they can put you out of the park for 'no reason at all' with no refund. The website says $395 a month but a few of us were being charged $475 incl utilities, only to be told we couldn't use our washers and dryers and at the end of our first month we were told we were 'using too much electricity' and could we use our gas oven instead of our microwave convection. We didn't catch a single fish in the 2 months we were there. The sites are awkwardly designed and dusty and it really is very, very boring there. One little bathhouse which contains a unisex shower and toilet is the only amenity. You have to dispose of your own trash (take it to the recycling centre yourself as there are no dumpsters here). It's overpriced and hot, hot, hot during the summer months. Very little breeze. We had to wait 6 days for a propane gas delivery. There are other much nicer and friendlier parks than this one if you're coming to Conway or if you don't want to stay at the cramped campgrounds down at Myrtle Beach.
