We stayed here in 2002 when we had a caravan. It was a lovely park with plenty of grassy areas for campers. There is still room for camping, but the cabins (which obviously have higher returns) are now crowding out the park. I would hate to be here in high season because I can just imagine it would be like... More

Great views of the river. Cabin was clean. I think it had just been renovated. Spa bath was fabulous. DVD player remote did not work but they replaced it. No globe in lamp, no biggie. Many improvements going on in pool area. When finished it will be awesome. A great family place. Way overpriced though. I would not go back... More

Clean, well appointed, our cabin faced straight onto a BBQ area shared by 6 cabins. A really polite man came around at 10 pm to make sure that there was no noise. Easy access to the marina, river and town. Overall excellent.

Was really disgusted with the lack of amenities at this resort. With a high price... lots of sites (at least 200+) and only 1 camp kitchen with 1 fridge/freezer (small size), broken toaster, no oven, and only 1 block of toilets/showers. (Yes I know most people have an ensuite but if you are out near a pool and there is... More

Just had a great stay at the Blue Dolphin Holiday Resort here in Yamba. Great check in staff. The location and facilities are great although some aspects are a tad tired. That said, there is an abundance of works being done and when finished it will make the park even more enjoyable. This is by no means a slant at... More

Great Holiday Resort - Well managed, very tidy. We have stayed on a on-suite caravan site each year for the past 10 or so years. The holiday resort have all what you would expect and more, it is situated right on the Clarence River with own boat ramp and jetty, just a short trip by boat to a little village... More

We stayed 5 nights in a two bedroom cabin during the school holidays. Whilst we knew the resort would be busy, we were in a very quiet section overlooking the river. The cabin was extremely well laid out, the beds comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. Staff at reception were helpful and check in was quick. It was a very... More

Great park and facilities for the children. However we were disappointed with the attitude of the management when we checked in. We had requested for a change in our allocated powered site and it was all verbally agreed over the phone. When we checked in the staff informed us that there were no such requests nor changes and it is... More

We are regulars and return each September school holidays, this was our 5th visit. We were fortunate enough to have a waterfront site complete with ensuite and a great view. Booking was no fuss and check in was simple. Was nice to have been shown the spot again and the assistance with parking and reversing the camper was appreciated, this... More

Booked an ensuite slab site at $90 night (2 adults and 3 & 6 yr old), with half paid for well in advance. Water tap is miles from the caravan inlet, they provided an extension hose while we were out... full of sand and damaged our regulator valve... not an easy fix in Jayco. Anyhow, the worst part of our... More
