We recently spent 4 nights at this park and it was excellent. We had an ensuite caravan site and the facilities were wonderful, the hosts were very friendly and helpful and we made good use of the free camp kitchen and swimming pool. While we didn't use them there was lots of play equipment etc for kids. Thoroughly recommend this... More

We only stayed for one night unfortunately, but travelled down for a 21st birthday party. The accommodation was ideal for us, very spacious, clean and neat. The owners and their staff were very friendly as well, which was really great. It was just a pity we didn't get to stay longer, as the park offers great facilities like mini golf,... More

We stayed in one of the cabins here for 2 nights in early September, can't believe how spotlessly clean the rooms were, great facilites and the BBQ area and surrounds were spotless as well. In all our travels probably haven't seen a cleaner well kept park. Close to Sovereign Hill and other shops and palces of interest in Ballarat. Perfect... More

Lovely well kept park with great facilities. For extra dollars you can enjoy the pedal bike or spa which are great additions if you want them along with the mini-golf. The cabins are lovely and clean and the beds are comfy. Close to town and Sovereign Hill with easy access to the highway.

They have absolutely fantastic facilities, especially the indoor spa, pool and mini golf. The BBQ and kitchen areas were immaculate as we're the toilet and bathroom facilities. The staff were awesome and went above and beyond helpful. We will definitely bring our family back to stay again

It is correct that we do not offer long term or permanent accommodation, Frances C so we are sorry if your enquiry was interpreted this way. It sounds like there was some confusion and we can assure you that a three day stay under your circumstances would not be a problem. More

Had a great time with 4 families together. A very quiet spot close to a lot of family friendly attractions. The kids really enjoyed the pool, spa and mini golf not to mention the jumping pillow (even the big KIDS). Would recommend this park to any families.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this park, so much so that we called in again on a return journey. There were ample places for children to play; in fact at one stage we were there over a long weekend and the swimming pool was definitely well used.

There is no greater compliment than when our guests return to stay with us and this is even more appreciated when our international guests choose us for a second trip. The pool is popular with all ages and we hope you also took advantage of the Indoor Spa. We hope that we see you again for a third visit soon More
