My husband and I booked in here with our caravan and our daughter, son-in-law and two small boys booked in with a caravan. Unfortunately the caravan for our daughter and family did not eventuate. At the last minute we phoned the Great Lake Holiday Park asking if they could accommodate our daughter and family with alternate accommodation. They were so... More

We have stayed here three times now, but until the showers are sorted and we can rely on having a hot shower we won't be back. The mens and ladies showers were only just warm and intermittently a spurt of hot water got through the system. We were cycling and doing outdoorsy stuff - very disappointed when a tepid shower...

Great facilities, hot showers, big kitchen, fridge, tv, clean, tidy and quiet. The campsites were large and allowed enough room for a car, 2 small tents, a picnic table and extra space. Our group had no issues with this holiday park. I would recommend it to others.

We couldn't get in to our usual favorite place, so took a punt. Nothing special about the surroundings- usual bland camping ground affair. One bedroom cabin seemed OK, but not worth the $119 (holiday weekend). Then I spilled a little hand cream on the bathroom floor and took a damp tissue to wipe it off. It came back BLACK. Office...

Had a fabulous time. Cabin was perfect with lots of fresh air. Tv was a bonus. Bed was comfortable and factilies very clean. Was not disturbed by road noise and was nice being out of town a little. Staff friendly and courteous.

Excellent service. Very pleasant country like atmosphere. All that we required was there. Great shower, too and very comfy bed and sofa for relaxing in. It was great to have a DVD/video player so that we could watch these when the TV was not interesting. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place to any... More

We found this motor camp nice, was a bit noisey because of the alternate motorway route, close to town, had all the amenities needed, needed a Tv room. Very helpful staff as we were just picking up a caravan and didn't intend to stay the night anywhere and didn't bring towels so they provided towels for a couple of dollars... More
