“Quiet and clean.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Was nice and quiet when we were there, even though it was 3rd week of Jan which is still peak holiday season. Facilities are a bit dated but everything worked and is very clean. The manager was very friendly and helpful.
Other than the pool there is not a great deal to do for kids but the beach and a playground are a couple of minutes walk away.
It's not located in the nicest part of town but the campground itself is lovely. Cross Street takeaways, 2 minutes drive up the road, fed 4 of us for $12.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Standard cabin:
This was a little Wendy house that had a TV, T&C facilities, plates and cutlery.
Bed was fine and the cabin was warm. Site was well laid out and small in size.
The site was close to the beach, just a 5 minute wander down the road.

This camping ground is absolutely lovely. DON'T DRIVE PAST - STOP IN AND RELAX
With some permanent sites and casual cabins, powered and non powered sites, this camping ground certainly is a hidden treasure.
Well equipped for long stays, lovely grounds with sauna, pool and spa. CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN ablutions, kitchen area and grounds.
The grounds are very well cared for with shrubs and trees giving the park a wonderful atmosphere with very friendly staff where nothing is too much trouble.
EVEN THE MORNING PAPER DELIVERED which was a great surprise!
The service is amazing and we will certainly return.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2011

We spent a night on a tent site in December here. The owner was friendly and there was a very large common room with tv and lots of seating. There was a pool but it was a bit cold out so we didn't swim. The bathrooms were very clean as was the kitchen. The park was well laid-out and you weren't too far from the beach and a good playground was across the street from the holiday park. Would return to stay here again for sure!
