We arrived very tired after 8 hours of driving about 4 pm. Went to office and it was locked so I called the number for assistance. The lady said they were out of town and wouldn't be back til tomorrow. I made reservations a month ahead and called to confirm while on the road, and no one said there wouldn't be anyone in the office. She told us to go to site 44 which was down a drive we had passed on the way in, so my husband had to back our 42 footer up about 80 feet and take the road described. When we got to the camping area, there were many full timers there who had trash lying all over the place. We couldn't find the site because it wasn't numbered. I asked one of the campers where it was and he pointed it out. All sites appear to be back ins. On top of all that it was a gravel site and if you got off the gravel you would sink in the mud. Then the hookups were beyond the back of the site and so was the sewer. It took 3 sewer hoses to reach the sewer which we fortunately happened to have. The lake is all overgrown with some kind of weeds and the whole place is in need of cleaning up. There was no switch to shut off the 50 amp when plugging in, which is dangerous! It is a huge overstatement to call this place a resort! We camped at Big Buck Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Run down, coast to coast park. 50 amp was good. No breaker in power box. Sewer connection a very long run, back of motorhome. There is nothing here (ATVs side by sides, deer hunting park, maybe). We camped at Big Buck Resort in a Motorhome.

Rode thru this so called resort just to check it out. The place is totally run down and appears abandonded. Tall grass at all sites and a bunch of old and undated for camping trailers. This place obviously was a big success at one time, but it is no longer. Very sad to see such terrible conditions Owners need to sink hundreds of thousands of dollars to get this place back to a 2* rating. We camped at Big Buck Resort in a Motorhome.

We was staying over the memorial holiday weekend. We are amazed with this place! Pictures don't do justice. So many amenities, the friendliest staff and gorgeous nature. I would recommend to all to visit Big Buck. We camped at Big Buck Resort in a Motorhome.

This is not a resort! It's definitely not up to what the passport book leads you to believe! This is a very sad place that is a has been. The owner needs major amounts of money to bring it up to par! Some 50 amp has been added but you need a map to figure out your site which might be different from the site number given to you. The sites are grass. The roads need gravel and repair. You can tell that it was a very nice rv park in its day but I believe the previous owners had sucked it dry! We camped at Big Buck Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 2 nights. Pool is not particularly attractive. Trash can is a very long walk away. Sites are large, many have no shade. Even though manager lady was very pleasant at checkin, there is no reason for us to return. We camped at Big Buck Resort in a Motorhome.

They only offered 30 amp service to us when there obviously was some 50 amp service. We bought some extra fans and it worked out.

We were glad we had really long sewer hoses because it took several.

We were only here two nights and we did laundry while here.

They needed to work on their restrooms. I think the toilet seats were off. We camped at Big Buck Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Most sites are back-in. Shaded sites seem to be taken by seasonal resort members. Only a few antenna channels. No wifi in the campground but it is available at the clubhouse. Clubhouse also has Direct TV. All utilities are at the rear of the site. Some sites are FHU, others are W/E only. Good water pressure. Catch and release fishing. Good spacing between sites. Not a bad place to stay. I guess the owners have made a lot of improvements since the previous reviewers posted. We camped at Big Buck Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

I stayed two days at this Park using a Passport Rate.

I asked to be close to WiFi, so they stuck me in an area that had not been mowed or maintained for weeks. I checked the high grass for snakes.

I got PBS from Mississippi over the air, nothing else would stay tuned. The WIFI was 1 bar and faded around 8PM.

I made the mistake of eating some Asian Chicken Nuggets at their restaurant. They seemed tasty. They gave me diarrhea. I happened to glance in their kitchen as I was paying my bill. Fryer area was disgusting. I turned them into the state health department. That was before I got sick. We camped at Big Buck Resort in a Motorhome.

What a beautiful property with 2 ponds, ATV trails and wide open spaces. Our 50 amp RV site had plenty of gravel but the recent rain made the side areas soft. The owners were extremely helpful and did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. Once around the pond on a paved road was almost a mile so we enjoyed numerous walks to hear the songbirds and see the ducks. Extra hose is needed to reach the sewer dump. We camped at Big Buck Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects Coast to Coast fee. The term "Resort" is a laugh. The young couple running the resort are trying to clean up the shabby grass and sites. A lot were long term people working a pipeline near by. The pool is great. There are many ATV trails and it looks like it would be a nice fall place with changing colors and they have hay rides in the fall. While there their sewer lines had crashed so no sewer hook up. Only one site with 50 amp. The dump station was trashy and hard to get to as the grass/weeds needed trimming around the dump site. This place has a lot of potential but needs a lot of work. No, we will not stay again. Also, a major hike to the dumpster to place trash. We camped at Big Buck Resort in a Motorhome.

No attendant on duty when arriving. Later, a young man got off the school bus to man the office. He was not at all familiar with campground or sites. He was unable to figure what two nights fee would cost and couldn't run the credit card machine. Finally paid in cash for 2 nights. Sites on their web site badly misrepresented. It indicated concrete pads. They were referring to a slab on which a picnic table sat. Actual RV sites was gravel/grass and very un-level. After looking at about four sites that were suppose to be 50 amp we found one but could not get level even on that site. Finally were so disgusted we just left not staying the second day and were suppose to receive a refund (via check) for the second day which we never have received. We camped at Big Buck Resort in a Motorhome.
