A recreational destination where you can relax and unwind in 80 hectares of holiday park, surrounded by forest, reserves and the beach.

We are situated in Spencerville, approximately 20 minutes away from the airport and city. We are situated in a beautiful area 500m from the Beach and surrounded by Bottle Lake Forest and the Brooklands Lagoon.
We have a wide range of accommodation for every budget from non powered tent sites to our Homestead which sleeps up to 18. We have a large number of powered sites and self contained units if you are traveling in a car.
Adjacent to us are 80 hectares of park, the beach, Brooklands lagoon, an animal/bird park, Bottle Lake Forest Park, and the many walkways…

Maybe good location in the good weather but we arrived on a rainy night. Seemed like many long termers are using the site. Quite old facilities. Don't recommend for families with young kids... Too big a site and very dark so had to use the flashlight to go to the facilities though we parked nearest to them.

Nice campsite with good clean facilities, hot showers and great access to the beach and forest. Ruined only by building work being done right next to my tent all week which I wasn't warned about. They started at 6:00am too which I felt was totally unnecessary and meant no one could sleep. Other than that it was fine.

Friendly office staff and convenient shop though we didn't use it. Pleasant, spacious level site close to the beach with mature trees, though generator or similar noise running all night was a slight inconvenience. Some long termers here. Daughter said park had a 'dodgy' feel to it and wouldn't go to shower unescorted. Sign in the showers says run the washbasin to hot first if you want to avoid a cold shower. Dated though adequate shower facilities. Park is convenient for the airport and city.

Site wasn't busy when we were there so it was hard to know the full extent of the site sizes etc but for a night in an unpowered site it cost us $30. Not worth that much.
