Being a single mum with 3 kids is a tough job, let alone taking them on a holiday. I have to say this park exceeded my expectations. The kids loved the pool. Everything was so clean and tidy. Having washing machines and dryers on site was awesome for me! People there were so beautiful and helpful. Every time it looked... More

We stayed for 4 nights in early March 2015. Kids absolutely loved this place with the pool and water park literally down the road from our deluxe two bedroom cabin. Very clean and park is well maintained. Actually arrived an 1 hour earlier than specified check in time but this was not a drama and the staff were very accommodating.... More

We stayed at this park for two weeks in March 2015. We had a site with a concrete slab and lots of lush grass. The amenities blocks are very modern and spotlessly clean. Access to the lake is excellent with two boat ramps joined together by a pleasant boardwalk. Access to shopping centres in Tuncurry and Forster is easy, in... More

Visited for a few days in the past week in a campervan, ( of our friends stayed in either band of cabins; one of the van sites was also poor - but they were warned. A previous review warned that campervans get dirt sites - sure enough I got the same treatment. The unexpected sandy ground could not hold pegs... More

Thanks for taking the time to provide us with your feedback, Brian C. We are quite proud of our great reviews on Trip Advisor and very disappointed that you did not enjoy your site on this occasion. We do find it difficult to keep the grass in optimal condition towards the end of our busy season and whilst we do... More

We (3 adults 1 baby) stayed here for one Sunday night. The room was a 2 bedroom deluxe cabin. Easy check in, friendly staff, good facilities & close enough to everything. But most of all, the room and whole park was clean. We would definitely stay here again!!!

Brilliant site with great facilities as you come to expect in Australia. Stayed on our way North in our Campervan. Lovely location and a 7 min walk to the Spit Bridge so you can walk to Forster. Excellent facilities for all and a nice shaded pool. Not the cheapest Laundry we found but I guess ok at $5 for a... More

Had the pleasure of staying here for a week over the Summer holidays. Booked an ensuite, powered campsite which was just fantastic as we have 4 children. Received a text at 11am on the day of check in to say our site was ready which was a nice touch. Pool is perfect for children, camp kitchen very clean and equipped.... More

Whilst we had an exceptional time and the park is just fantastic, three suggestions: 1) the playground needs to be updated with more equipment to cater for all ages. 2) more grass on powered sites 3) someone enforcing the rules in the pool to ensure everyone has a relaxing time. Please note these matters did not stop us having a... More

Owners gave us a free upgrade to a larger cabin, but even if they hadn't it would still be a great camp site. Lovely sunsets down at the water's edge, a cracking pool and kitchen area, friendly staff and a nice little cafe made it a relaxing place to stay. And just 10 minutes walk down to the New Year's...
