Great location. Situated right at the beach access. Lovely managers. This is probably the most cleanest toilet/shower facilities ive come across. Absolutly spotless. A very pleasant relaxing place to stay. What would be a great thing to add to the park. Would be a dog minding facility. That way if you want to travel into the national park you can.... More

I found that the Male Manager at this caravan park is very rude and has no people skills at all it might be wise to take a new career path , Marion bay is not a caravan park located as a stop over to continue your journey its at the bottom of the peninsula which means most people want to... More

We stayed at the Marion Bay Caravan Park and I was pleasantly surprised on arrival at how clean and neat everything was. We hardly used our camper for cooking as we used the very well equiped, enclosed camp kitchen. With close proximity to the beach it was a lovely spot and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves the few days we were... More

The location is close to the beach (25 meters) which is fantastic for young and old alike. Only 5 min drive to one of SA's best National Parks. The park... More

Thank you for you lovely thought on the caravan park and the other attraction in the area. It really is a lovely place for everyone to come and enjoy.
