Stayed 1 night in a campervan Feb 2017.

Basic as expected for the cost, handy for the drive down to Nugget Point Lighthouse and Roaring Bay Hide to see the YEPs.

The place is not that nice and the staff is surely not friendly. Showers are good, but we don't get how the rates for this campsite are so high.

$10pp some free Wi-Fi toilets free power points to charge all your items free microwaves toasters hot water free DVDs free DVD players and a $20,000 unit for you to eat in
The only problem is you
If you can find cheaper you should have gone there,
DOC sites are $8 all you get is a long drop,
if you think our cost are to high may be you shouldn't be on holiday.

Simple accomodation run by really friendly people, their service makes the difference. There is a lack of water facilities, but showers are warm and plenty of places. Free DVDs and WiFi, food on order and a nice chat, the friendly people running the place are awesome!

WE LOVE HILLVIEW. A truly amazing campsite. Clean, friendly and quiet! The owners were so lovely, even made us a hot chocolate before bed! For $10 pp plus $2 for a shower you can honestly not go wrong. Well worth staying at. Beautiful spot and service.

Owner is very friendly at the beginning. We stayed there one night we paid $10 per person. In the morning 10 am he said to us that they are closed and that we had to leave. We are still waiting to get a shower, there are only 2 showers for $2 dollars and it was quite busy so we to wait for a shower. The owner didn't say to us at the beginning that they are closed at 10am, there were no signs either. We found it very rude and not very welcoming to guests. We will not come back!!

Hillview Camping Stay - Nugget Point responds:

We do state on the paper work we give you telling you all about the cost the food we do and at the bottom it says in BIG red writing we close at 10am
Most places charge extra if your after 10am,
We have now changed our leaving time to 1030am
We have 2 hours cleaning when every one as gone and can get people in at 11am wanting to stay the night.
if we did not state a leaving time I could under stand but you have all night to shower I don't see why we should put every thing on hold just for some one to have a shower.
