We stayed in the top class 4 birth superior lodge. Cabin was expensive, but great. Had a huge kitchen, lounge room and bathroom. Everything you could want was supplied in the cabin including washing machine and dishwasher. Including a big deck with a bbq on it. Being elevated there was a bit of road noise. Friendly and helpful staff. Short... More

We stayed here in Feb 2014 simply beautiful. Beautiful bedrooms, robes, electric blanket, big laundry and shower in one, kitchen, lounge, gas log fire, A/C and table and chairs opening onto a beautiful Balcony with the BBQ on the deck, looking onto the horizon. My husband and myself were so amazed that it made us realise we want to build... More

We stayed there in January in an economy cabin. Functional design, fridge/freezer, microwave, cooking hot plates, toaster, kettle, pots, pans, cutlery, plates, cups etc - all there. There'e a TV and aircon. The main bed room had an electric blanket, the bunks are behind a curtain - a big hit with the kids, they just snuggled up in their 'cave'... More

We stayed in the more expensive cabin (there are cheaper ones) at $170 per night. Expensive for a cabin but it had everything in it including a washing machine and dryer. Was a very nice roomy cabin. Good size TV and DVD player. Nice covered deck with views and own BBQ which we used 3 times. Well appointed kitchen with... More

The accommodation chosen was an economy 6 berth cabin on special for $80 per night. The Cabin was presented to a high standard with plenty of consumables ( toilet paper, washing liquid etc) provided with instructions to ask for more if required. The park itself is also presented to a high standard with nothing out of place. There are plenty... More

We booked a superior 4 person lodge for one night at $169. The unit overlooked the main road which was very noisy if the door was left open. On shutting the door the sound proofing was excellent. A key feature for us was the washing machine and dryer in the unit as we were midway in our trip and needed... More

We stayed in a economy cabin, it certainly is economy, very basic, but serves it purpose, ($89 a night )somewhere clean and warm and was an excellent base for us to visit Port Arthur, Hobart etc. Park was nice and quiet, and staff were helpful. It is a bit out of Hobart so good to have own vehicle, but we... More

I have always found the Risdon cabin park to be reasonably priced and the location is great to get to places like Hobart city, Port Arthur, down to Huonville and over to New Norfolk, without being part of the city CBD itself. The staff are always friendly and informative of local things to do. We had booked a Superior Lodge... More

We were traveling in a "RV" looking for a holiday Park that could house our RV and still convenient to Hobart though the Park is mainly a park full of cabins the limited powered sites were fantastic... The added touch of en suites were a bonus not to mention the pub near the entrance we had a excellent stay

We stayed over the Christmas period and booked a powered site for my husband and I, and a cabin for my mum who was visiting. Mum liked her cabin, it had everything she needed in it. It was clean and comfortable, and had plenty of room for her. The caravan sites, however, are less impressive. There are only 6 sites... More
