Friendly owner and tidy place. Was on the upper end of the scale ($20 for an unpowered site) however there is free wifi that encompasses most of the park and the facilities have been well looked after. There is a common room with sky tv and some power outlets if you desperately need to charge something. $2 for 10min hot shower. Enjoyed the stay

15$ pp is ok for one night. very small kitchen and bathroom but friendly Personal.
Good location in a quiet town. Campsite is pretty basic but it is really reasonable. The Owner is a lovely guy and you can hire out bikes, kayaks and paddle boards really cheap.
Turned up after a long drive and had to wait 30 minutes for the owner to arrive which was pretty frustrating as we were exhausted. After he arrived there was a bit of attitude and not very welcoming. Didn't get told about paid showers so had a freezing cold one as I had no change. No fridge in the cabins, wouldn't say they were worth $65 at all.
We loved this site for its friendliness and laid back feel. It was small but felt cosy with good community spirit between campers. The facilities were adequate and clean but not plush. The showers are paid, but hot. They stop running when the time runs out - but we were warned! The wi-fi was excellent, but we had to sign in to the campsite not to the library (The library wi-fi was not available when the library was closed). The site is between the town centre and the estuary lagoon. The town centre is small, but has everything you need. We needed to add to the crockery and cutlery supplied for our rented van and found just what we needed from the "Op Shop" ("Charity Shop", in UK) run from the church hall just beyond the last shop. Worth a visit anyway!! The lagoon is great for bird watching and swimming when the tide is in. Over the peninsula to the Pacific is a beautiful sandy surf beach - no eating facilities there though, so take a picnic. We liked this site so much that we booked an extra night. Highly recommended.
Friendly management, when we first arrived the desk was unattended but a note said to find a spot and help ourselves, then paid in the morning. $14 each for an unpowered site and $2 for 5 minute hot showers. All facilities were good and close to the main strip with shops. Definitely recommend.

Decent enough site. It's nice being walking distance into the centre of town, although it did feel a bit like we were camped in a garden. WiFi came free from the library that is adjacent to the campsite. In March 2016 it was $15 per person per night on an unpowered site, hot showers were an extra $2.
