This year was our third time to BigOaks. We usually take two campers and like sites side by side. We love the bike trail to the beach and also enjoy taking the trail into Lewis. It's really the only campground in the area besides the state parks. It's clean and friendly. That being said, as I read in other reviews, sites are tight to say the least. This year we opted to stay in the lower level. It seemed a little more private. Let me start by saying that the two sites we got for our 30 foot campers were next to impossible to get into, even for a seasoned driver. Secondly, my camper door opened out to a huge garage that is used to hold their garbage truck ( not a pretty site). On top of that, we were paying top price for the site because it came with 50amp, water, sewage, cable and internet. The cable never worked (despite trips up to the front desk to get tips), the internet never connected ( we were told we wouldn't be able to get internet unless we were right outside the camp store) and lastly, the STENCH of the garbage holed up in the garage in hot weather, was constant and unpleasant to say the least. If you ask me, those sites should be discounted due to the aforementioned. To top off our trip, one of the members in our group broke their leg getting caught up in a pile of debris left on the site. Thankfully, The owners were willing to refund our money since we had to cut things short. Though I think they probably should have come down to see how the leg was broken and clean up the debris. What it comes down to is either have a little more room and have to deal with stench and less amenities or stay up top and camp on top of your neighbor. I will chose the latter next time. Would I come back? Considering the limited options for campers, YES, we love rehoboth and try to spend most of our time at the beach anyway.
