Nice Place, good for kids, stayed on the way out west, would stay again. The kids had fun and everyone was helpful with any questions we had. Its a nice spot in a nice part of Qld. We only stayed one night on the way out west, next time we will stay longer.

We stayed in a delux cabin and it was excellent. There was a deck overlooking the lake which provided great views through the trees to the lake. The cabin was spacious enough for the six of us. The beds were comfortable and even the sofa bed was high quality with an innerspring mattress and extra supports to stop it sagging... More

Found this place by accident, as we were initially going to stay in Emerald. It is only 18 kms South of Emerald, but what a gem of a place! We stayed there for 4 nights and found it very relaxing and quiet, with the bonus of birdlife to greet you each day, while overlooking the lake. The only negative I... More

We were going to stay 3 nights and stayed 5. John and his staff not only kept a spotless set of amenities, but also made us very welcome. Helped us onto our site and made us feel like visiting friend rather than tourists. Wonderful family and staff. Look forward to returning in 2015. Wonderful sunsets over the lake for the... More

We were booked in initially for one night on a powered site but dragged my husband away after 5! It was picturesque, clean and updated. the restaurant was being renovated but that didn't stop the chef from providing a great but limited 'meals on Wheels' service. The Red Claw were proving elusive but if we had a boat were would... More

When researching caravan parks in the Emerald region it would be very strange if Lake Marraboon didn't come up as a popular choice amongst all reviews. I can honestly say its advertising and reviews proved to be on the money when describing this popular little park. Even though the park it self is going through some up grades such as... More

I was put up at the Holiday Village for a couple of days by my Brisbane Office while attending Emerald for business. They obviously had no idea about the distance into town (possibly they got confused with another accommodation provider with a similar name). However our accommodation was very comfortable, the staff were friendly, the whole park was spotless and... More

On arrival we were escorted to our site and directed in which was a wonderful change as most parks draw you a map and say goodbye good luck. Immaculate amenities, very clean and spacious sites. The wild life is also amazing. Lovely walks around the dam and lake. Highly recommend.
