“Great Family Friendly Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

We stayed here on a powered site. Staff and other campers all so friendly. We have a 3 year old with Autism and they could not do enough to help us and make our stay stress free. Cheap excellent washers and dryers. Great baby bathroom. Lovely little shop for essentials. heaps of grassed areas for cricket and soccer and aussie rules and also very nice fenced playground. the monkey mania indoor playground 5 minutes drive. Also 5 minutes to Fyshwick Fresh Food Markets and pretty much any other shopping you need within 5 minutes. 10 minutes to city. Lovely people and will stay there next time.

Stayed December 2013, traveled with family

2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Unfortunately I had made the wrong choice to stay here from the recent postive reviews. This park IS NOT family friendly. With a sign out the front of the toilet block saying "unaccompanied children not permitted" alarm bells of an unsafe environment went off. With saying that the bathroom amenities were extremely clean. The playground was across from the inhouse pub!! Seriously???!!! Would anyone let their kids play there without supervision. In caravan parks, I feel I should feel comfortable with allowing my 3 children to go to the toilet and playground unaccompanied

This park is more like a workers park and cheap accommodation for locals. The grounds were unkempt to say the least.

Please if you have children, do more homework (although I thought I had). Maybe phone the Canberra Visitors Centre for recommendations. I wish I had. I've been told the O'Conner CP is better.

This is our Nation's Capital.... how embarrassing.

turned up here without booking & luckily the manger had a space for us! fed up with camping we treated ourselves to a cabin cost us $110 & so glad we did as we had the mother of all thunder storms that night & were we would of been camping our tent would been washed away! parking next to cabin was very tight had to drive in slowly or risk hitting the side of the cabin! the city was only a short drive away! the visitor centre was awkward to drive to though the staff were very helpful. only stayed one night wish it was more so much to see & do over all cabin was ideal for a family of four a double bed & three bunks basic but clean!

My wife and I spent two weeks in our caravan at the Motor Park whist visiting family, and found the staff very pleasant and helpful. The park was well maintained and amenities kept very clean. The park is located close to major thoroughfares and many of the major Canberra attractions.

Perfect location to manuka (amazing part of the city)!
We stayed in winter, and the heating was really great. Beds comfy, and all very clean.
Lorna at the front desk was lovely. Happy to help out with anything we needed. We arrived quite late at night and she waited for us, to give us the key and boom gate swipe.
We stayed in the double room deluxe cabins and they were great! Small but had everything we needed - kitchen, clean bathroom, cozy bedrooms.

Don't worry about the bad reviews - stayed here with a group of my friends and thoroughly enjoyed! The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating with all of our requests and the value was fantastic. The cabins were clean, had all the utilities we could possibly want and location was good as it was not far to the centre of Canberra at all!

We stayed in a standard two bedroom cabin which was very clean, lots of hot water, hard bed was to hard we both had a very broken night sleep and woke with a sore back. Very quite. Not sure if would stay again. Old looking but you get what you pay for!
