Well maintained and friendly staff. However expensive showers in unisex bathrooms (with lights on timer leaving you showering in the dark). Good reading/TV room and kitchen was clean, though bring your own everything!

Gorgeous spot
Fantastic hosts
A few things

- almost cold showers @ $2 for 4mins, there’s no reason for this. We stayed elsewhere after and paid $1 for 5mins for pure hot water. They ran off tank water.

- 5 days surrounded by crying babies and small kids. I’d suggest having a section in the park for people without kids - first in, first serve basis.

- felt quite cramped - I think more planting needs to happen around the sites - small shrubs etc. the road material needs to be changed to something a little more softer on the eye to create that space - perhaps something the colour of sand or something like that.

I liked the movie nights and all the various equipment you could rent out.
Hosts were extremely friendly even going that extra step to show you where your site was.

Off season with declining weather, so they were surprised to see us, but very helpful. Womens bathrooms under renovation, so we used the mens (but we were the only people there so no problem). Good kitchen, eating area, TV room fully equipped with reading material. Showers $2 for 4mins. Sheltered set back from beach (5 min walk). Only warning .....this is the only camp here and during the short summer season this is an extremely busy area...)owner advises: 500+ people...).

Nice flat site with plenty of room. Lovely helpful host and great fish n chips from the onsite take away. The new unisex toilet block is spotless. Good BBQ facilities with kitchen and TV lounge. Site was quiet in mid February. Well worth the money.

Campsite quite nice but facilities definitely in need of TLC. This is NOT beach front although the beach is close ~ maybe 250 m or so. No cellphone. Cold water laundry for 4.00 plus charge for showers. Also, weather not so good which is maybe why I am quite negative about this camp.
