A very clean and lovely park. Studio cabin was basic but was well maintained and priced to suit. A great park for the kids, so close to sovereign hill. Will definately stay again, hopefully in warmer weather to use the beautiful pool.

$68 for our family of 2 adults and two kids ages 3 and 6 to camp for 1 night. Wanted an unpowered site which they don't have (I should have checked beforehand I guess)... They charge for the site plus extra for each child over 2. It seems such an exorbitant price for the privilege of camping, I find the... More

We only stayed the night on our trip. This Big 4 is 300 metres from Sovereign Hill. A short walk if you have a 2 day pass. Leave the car at the park and walk. The park itself was tidy and well presented. The staff had a good chat to us as we arrived and made us feel welcomed.

We stayed at the Park on our last 5 night of a 3 month caravan holiday. Great amenities loved the heaters so it was nice and warm when you went in. Nice and friendly. Will be back with our van again that's for sure.
