Unless you have kids, I recommend steering clear of this park, crowded with lots of families and kids running and screaming everywhere. When we arrived they also tried to put us in a tiny triangle of grass between a cabin and the main road which wasn’t even a real tent site, they then moved us to a square of grass behind a cabin, although there were at least three prime tent spaces by the river that were clearly open. We asked if we could move to one of those spaces but they said they were booked (even though it was late evening), no one came that night and spaces were still open in the morning - very disappointing. Not really worth the $40. Points given for nice river view and decent water pressure in the shower.

Travelling in a motorhome, my husband and I checked in on a Saturday night of a long weekend. So in essence we were lucky to get a powered site, of which we got the last one! We were in the boat parking space at the back of the camp. The camp is on the side of a river with mainly swamp lands around. When the tide is in you can access the river, where we saw a number putting in their jet skis. We didn’t use the main bathroom blocks as there was a smaller one situated near us at the back of the park; it was fairly new and clean. In summary a nice little park, very open however.

What a campsite! Why doesn't it have more reviews!!! Amazing price for what you get, everywhere is clean and tidy. No problems with cooking facilities, toilets or accommodation. The staff are lovely and friendly. Free Wifi that works as if you are in a library. I urge anyone, if you're in the area to come and stay, check out the area and this campsite. You won't be disappointed.

This place is beautiul. My sister and me had a really late check in but that wasn't a problem. The facilities look tidy and clean. You have free WiFi access. We slept on a non-powered campsite for $18 each. That was it definitely worth. For $0.50 you can enjoy a tidy and hot shower for 6minutes. And wake up next to the river. Give them a try it's definitely worth it. Cheers.
