Thank goodness for great friends! They have been asking us to camp with them for years. Since our children are now teenagers with two planning their college days, we felt it was time to deliver on our promise… so last summer we went to Big Oaks!
Big Oaks Family Campground provided the perfect setting. The abundance of trees provided perfect shade, while the sparkling clean pool and well-maintained bathhouses with squeeky clean private showers added to our enjoyment. Not having camped since my husband and I were children, we opted to rent a cabin instead of using our tent. Again, we found our accommodations to be clean, neat and placed on a quiet cul-de-sac within 50 yards of the bathhouse. In addition, the campground’s proximity to both Rehoboth Beach and Boardwalk and Cape Henlopen’s Beach can’t be beat!
Big Oaks Campground has lots of activities during the summer season. Dancing, art contests, bingo, or join one of their tournaments (basketball, horseshoes, shuffleboard, or billiards).
The campground schedules their activities on Saturday evenings, and because some of their activities are held outside, can be weather dependent.
Amenities include a swimming pool, playground, game room, camp store, shuttle service, bath facilities, shuffleboard, picnic tables, fire rings, horseshoes, basketball court, laundry and free Wi-Fi at certain central locations.
Nearby are biking trails, the historic town of Lewes, Rehoboth Beach boardwalk, Deep-sea fishing, clamming and fishing, scuba diving, golf, water slides, outlet shopping, summer theater, art festivals, antique shops, restaurants, stores, laundromat, hardware, movies, churches, hospitals and doctors.
Thanks to Big Oaks Family Campground for a memorable experience we will be talking about for years to come.
