We stayed here on a powered site in the off season. The staff were helpful and friendly. We were allowed to choose our own site and had plenty of room. The amenities were well kept. It was just a stroll down to the Information Centre and Harbour. Lovely town, which must be fantastic in the warmer seasons.

We stayed one night in the middle of July. Very friendly staff on check in. This was a standard cabin that was a good price. The cabin is a good size but is showing it's age. The cabin has a very small flat screen tv and an electric blanket on the main bed. The main bed has a very good... More

This was by far and away the best caravan park we have stayed at between Apollo Bay and Mount Gambier. Not only was it the cheapest, but it was also by far and away the cleanest and with the best amenities we have come across. On top of all of that, our children were presented with free activity packs and... More

We spent two nights on a powered site. The views from our caravan of Portland Port were spectacular, day and night. The ammenities were meticulously clean and a very high standard. The staff are extremely helpful. Walking distance to town and the Historic Port area. Portland tourist tram runs right past front gate. Great stay.

We stayed at the Portland Bay Holiday Park over Easter, and we were delighted at high quality customer service. Everything was done exceptionally well, including a Movie night for the kids, a sausage sizzle, and a generous easter hunt. We will certainly return.

This is partly a review and partly a rant about some of the other campers we had nearby (sorry, but I really need to get it off my chest). The park was great - the showers/toilets are new and were always clean. Laundry easy to use and affordable. BBQ areas provided throughout the park. Even though we stayed over the... More
