You will all be glad to know that Big Oaks has new owners. My husband and I rented a cabin for 2 months but will probably stay for much longer. This is one of the last hidden gems left in Florida. I can swim in the pool, fish on the dock without a fishing license, canoe up and down the beautiful Withlacoochee River for free, shopping and dining are nearby, I can fish in salt or fresh water here and the boat ramp is free to residents. Happily, it's quiet, peaceful and affordable. free Wi-Fi, too. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
I was to stay at least a month, but had enough after 1 night, place was a joke. I personalty wouldn't have trusted the employees as far as I could throw them. I noticed drug activity and also a bar located on the campground where locals visit, Police were there twice during my stay serving papers to other residents and one was arrested. I had big rig and had to get on top to clear the power lines and trees. Was told there would be 50 amp but only 30 was there and water lines leaked badly needs lots of work. We camped here in a Motorhome.
New manager and owner. The place needs a LOT of work. Very run down. The staff is nice and helpful. They are constantly working on the place. Nice location but too small of a park for my needs. They had a lot of permanent residences that did not contribute favorable to the image of the park. Didn't have any activities scheduled while we were there. Pool was closed for work as was the recreation room. The washers and dryers were a joke. I must say the owner and staff are trying to improve it but it has a long ways to go. I gave them a "3" because of the effort otherwise it would have been a "1". We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
