We visited a while ago, the kids still talk about our walk through the trail to visit these amazing caves.

“The Ovens Natural Park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Have not been there for some time. No question that scenery is spectacular. I think this venue has great potential for development. Should be a first class facility with the veru best of services to offer. This was not the case the last time I was there but things may have changed since then.

“Nice natural area but the facilities are run down.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

A tad expensive for a day park....as a campground I would avoid as the facilities were dirty or run down. The scenery makes up for that though...but be careful on the trail.

“Natural wonder”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The sounds coming from the caves are in proportion to the wave action so a windy day is best , spring and fall being the best times. A bit out of the way, so plan for a full day.
