I’m writing a review as there hasn’t been any for nearly a year and I think this could lead others to dismiss staying here as we nearly did and that would be a shame. The description mentions new owners and I think they must have come in since the last reviews were written. We very much enjoyed our short stay. The facilities were very clean and plentiful. There was even a family bathroom which we sadly didn’t find until bathing our baby in the laundry sink. The pitches were spacious and grassy and even the motorhome ones had a nice aspect down by the river. It was all very peaceful and the main noisemakers were the ducks! The only negative is that although within the block there were plentiful showers, sinks, cooking facilities etc, there was only one block which was quite a distance from some of the furthest sites. I will also slightly caveat my review by saying we were there in a Sunday night not in school holidays and it wasn’t super busy so it might be a different experience under those circumstances.

Long day travelling and looking forward to a shower. Should have got 7 minutes of hot shower got no minutes just ran cold. Smelt like open sewer in the cold shower. One next door not so bad but shouldn't have to move! Dump station really awkward to access. Numbers not easy to identify you have to go through ridiculous TV programs street names. Finally worked ours out between Peyton place and Ramsey st. Just put the numbers on the sites.

We were here in the off-season so it was very quiet, like a ghost town. We arrived at 7pm and the office was already closed but we had instructions to find a spot. The kitchen was huge and freezing cold. The bathrooms were cold too and the hot water was not working. In the morning the staff tried to remedy the situation and reimbursed our shower money. Definitley not my favorite holiday park.

Hi Martha, thankyou for your feedback, this winter has been a bit quiet, its given us a good chance to update the blocks, we have build ceiling in the blocks & kitchen which has made them alot warmer & looking into heaters for the bathrooms. We are new owners & working hard to upgrade the park.

Overcrowded, cramped, noisy and overpriced. I will not return during busy times (Dec, Jan, Feb; school holidays; public holiday weekends) as there were too many people for the space and facilities, which made for a frustrating, tiring stay. Toilets ran out of toilet paper by the end of the day. Not enough tables under shade, so many guests have to eat their meals at the tables in the sweltering sun. (The sail that provides shade over part of the dining area is also the only protection from rain, so I presume that on rainy days the guests who miss out on tables under the sail have to eat standing in the spaces between tables or wait hopefully for someone at a table to finish their meal and leave!) There was a radio station playing constantly in the kitchen and bathrooms - no way to turn it off - this made for a noisy, unpleasant environment. This is the most expensive campground I've ever stayed at but has nothing that other campgrounds don't have to justify the extra cost. The pool is lovely but so crowded that it's hard to keep out of each other's way moving around the pool. Some campsites are under trees but the entire double row of campsites that we were in has no shade at all. The row of campsites we were on is parallel to a busy road, separated by a hedge and footpath from the road: loud traffic noise including trucks was constant from 6am on.

The amenities were nice. Had to pay $1 for 6 minutes for the shower. $4 for the washing machine and dryer. The park was nice. Seemed like a family orientated park, but was a little pricy for a powered site, especially having to pay for the shower on top of the site fee. Other than that, it was a nice clean park.
