I usually post reviews after I leave a park and seldom more than one per park. We, however, have a history with this park, our first RV winter 6 years ago and many short and long stays since then. The positive changes we find do not disappoint. The camping area has been opened up in terms of excessive vegetation being removed leaving a nicely landscaped park. The surrounding area has also been cleared leaving plenty of places to walk with or without a pet. Customer service is still first-rate including a weekly pot-luck dinner. Utilities are good and restrooms/laundry are fine. Located on the road that ends at the Crooked River traffic noise is minimal. After 6 years of semi-full time RVing this park is in our top five. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Base camp for exploring coastal Georgia and Okefenokee Swamp. Noth Florida beaches or nearby. St. Marys-Kingsland has everyday supplies (Walmart, groceries, Lowes) and specialties are in Jacksonville. Good selection of restaurants without the inflated prices in Florida tourist areas. Nearby golfing at Kings Bay Navy Base (open to public). The town of St. Marys is old with historic architecture and riverfront.

This place just overflows with southern hospitality! The owner goes out of her way to make you feel welcome making sure the site you have is sufficient for your needs. We are from a colder state so not used to the humidity but my oh my! To us it was the epitome of the south; big trees hanging with moss, crepe myrtle trees in bloom, a lovely pond which warns of alligators and such; the grounds are huge with grassy areas sufficient for walking dogs or just taking a stroll (if the humidity doesn't bother you). A friendly campground tuxedo cat who, if you're not careful, will join you inside your rig. Peaceful and quiet ~ a lovely place to relax. We were unable to get Dish TV, so if you need TV just request an appropriate site. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Motorhome.

Historic St. Mary's is a lovely place to visit. The Navy Submarine Museum is in town. Restaurant there called The Riverside has excellent Greek food! Super Walmart in town. Crooked River State Park is nearby if you want to do any fishing - they have a boat launch.

The campground was the perfect place to stay while we toured Cumberland Island an the surrounding area. St Mary's is a quaint little town with very friendly folks. The owners of the campground could not have been nicer. We asked for a satellite friendly site and they made sure we got one. Would love to come back and spend more time exploring this beautiful part of the Georgia and Florida coast. We could stay here again. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in this campground for 3 days as we explored the area. We were in a 45' motorhome and towing our stacker trailer so needed a long pull through. Site 1 at Big Wheel fit the bill. Site 1 is a very nice gravel site, although there were quite a few trees I worried about. The park is nice and clean and the staff was helpful. It's a nice campground for an overnight or a longer stay. We backed our motorhome and trailer out of site 1 because I doubted I could have pulled through and made it around some of the turns in the campground. Backing up from site 1 is very easy though so not a problem. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Motorhome.

A lovely, small, well maintained campground with winding roads and live oaks draped in Spanish Moss. We arrived after the office closed, so were told to just take our site when we got there, which we did. No resort folderol here - just a nice, quiet campground full of pleasant people. Our concrete slab site was level and the utilities were convenient. The staff was very helpful. We found an excellent dog sitter who lives in town, you can get her name at the office. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Motorhome.

Place hasn't changed. Been here before and it's always been good. Rained here pretty hard the evening we arrived but the area drained quickly and all is good. Front office friendly and helpful. Park is convenient to down town St Mary which is a very nice little town and worth a visit. Our 2 night stay went well, as usual, and we will return again. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Had site number 1 - very nice concrete pad across from the rest rooms, showers and awesome laundry. The park is clean and well kept with a beautiful canopy of trees and Spanish moss over the sites. The owner was very nice as well as her staff. They know the area well and were helpful with information and the history of St Marys. We stayed for 6 days and were really able to relax. We will stay with them again and highly recommend anyone in the area to stop for a few days and take in St Marys. It's a very historic town. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Motorhome.

Please visit the Submarine Museum in down town St Marys. They are working very hard for our veterans and keeping the memories of our silent service members alive. The live oaks are amazing and the war of 1812 museum is a must see. Of coarse Cumberland Island should be on your list of things to do.

(Rate is based on monthly) We spent two weeks after snowbirding further south and waited for a weather window to go home to Ohio. We have wintered in this park previously and would not have bothered with another review but found some change. First, the water is far better. Generally water quality in this area is poor. Second, the park is adding sites and has plans for expansion. In winter the park is full so even with the expansion call ahead. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Big Wheel is a good location to visit the charming town of St. Mary and the ferry to Cumberland Island. Fernandia Beach and Amelia Island are convenient to the campground too. The campground is located very near Crooked Creek State park. You can ride a bike to the park which is delightful to stop in the Nature Center.

Stayed four nights. We had a concrete pull-through site with a patio and picnic table. Somewhat more space and privacy than a lot of similar parks. There was a lot of space inside the park that was not used for RV parking and lots of trees and native plants. Also a number of small fields and a pond. Great for the dog. Yes there were couple of roosters, and they did start crowing about 4:30 AM. If you are a light sleeper you might need earplugs. The owner was very helpful and friendly. No cable TV. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice clean tropical feeling RV resort. It is not a campground. Office staff was friendly. People staying in the park were great! All hookups worked well. Sites are a little close together and no privacy between sites. We didn't use the showers but from what I saw they were clean and safe. There are some very tight turns in this campground. Easy to find. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at this park for a week and had a fantastic time. The park is clean and the staff is friendly. The only complaint I had were the roosters! The park has free-range chickens, and the rooster starts crowing at about 4 am and doesn't stop until the sun comes up. Sleep with a fan by your head or bring some ear plugs, because I was woken up early for the first few days.

Our dogs loved the fenced in dog park at the back of the property. They could run around and play off leash, which was very nice. The laundry and the restrooms were very clean, and we had no problem getting packages delivered to the park.

There is a small bar just steps away from the park. We went there one night and met the locals and got some great recommendations about what to do in the area (which I will share with you in the tip section!) We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a fine time in this area.
DO NOT MISS CUMBERLAND ISLAND! We took the 11:45 ferry out and the 4:45 ferry back. This was plenty of time to see the Dungeness Ruins and walk the beach. If it had been warmer, I would have taken the earlier ferry and spent all day on the beach. It really was breathtaking.

An overnight stop for traveling I95, we have used this campground before and like it. Always prefer to use the Passport America parks rather than Walmarts, truck stops, etc. whenever possible. Nice people run the park and the sites are level concrete while interior roads are asphalt and nice. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Motorhome.
