This proved to be a short relaxing break for us. The lake was beautiful, we were lucky with the weather in mid winter but most of all the sunsets were to die for. Absolutely glorious. We shall certainly be returning to this park in the near future. Very friendly helpful staff and very clean amenities.

Powered lakefront sites are not adjacent to the lake, even though they charge you more for a supposed lakefront site. You have camper trailers and tents and gazebos blocking your access to the lake. No good with your kayak. Especially poor sites, water taps are a very long way from the powered site, also no sullage on site, otherwise your... More

Great weekend park has all the attractions for families. Stayed with our children and grandchildren. Playground popular with the children. Pedal boats were also popular though they need a maintenance program some of them did not work. We stayed in executive cabins and were not disappointed.

We have stayed at Lake Bonney CP about half a dozen times over the last 4 years. Its a great place to take the teenagers because of the water activities. They love the water trampolines on the lake, kayaks, pool & paddle boats. My only complaints is that the sites can be a bit dusty and also the dead carp... More

It really depends on what you want out of a holiday trip. This has all the trapings of a Discovery Holiday Park, including a lake, but...................... While you can't see it, it is very close to the main highway. Lots of truck noises ALL NIGHT LONG. Sites are a decent size, but grass is a premium and there are no... More

If you're just here to kick back and relax this is the place for you. Maybe a little TLC could be done for this place as charging 39$ a night to stay in your own van. The kitchen area had no sink, you had to walk back to the loos to wash up and then only 1 sink (a waiting... More

Having booked to stay for the final night of our 3 week trip at Lake Bonney, we were very disappointed in the park. We asked for an ensuite caravan site and found that we were at the furthest most point of the park in a "dust bowl". The site was very dirty and they had been watering the "bark" on... More

We decided to head up to the Riverlands for a week in January school holidays, decided that Lake Bonney was our choice. We took our own tent up, had a powered site for $32/night. The Caravan site has great facilities throughout, BBQ's, Kitchens with Fridge/Freezers, plenty of showers and toilet areas, and CLEAN. Was great to go out at night... More

Staff were friendly but the park is in need of some TLC. We stayed in cabin 30 which I think was the pick of the cabins as far as location goes. As the park was not very busy we could see the lake (just) from the balcony. Other cabins were in the lane behind us so would not have had... More

We stayed for 4 days in camper trailer. Gorgeous spot on the lake. Amazing sunsets. Midweek fine for kayaks as no speedboats around. Amenties clean and tidy. Unfortunately we were put on very dusty site , despite park not busy and booking months in advance.... seems big vans get grassy sites .... that was disappointing. Other parks in surrounding towns...
