“Good location”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Campsite jam packed with all caravans on top of eachother. Not grassy. Just dirty sand on floor and facilities quite dirty. Easter weekend so maybe why was so busy. Still only $35. Other campsites doubled prices! So better value. Right on main street of lorne by info centre.

This was our first caravan park on a 2-week road trip - we got put on a hill overlooking the water which was away from crowd. Poorly maintained sites but cobwebs all over the facilities. The power socket did not work and we did not even realize it until our water kettle worked when plugged into the bathroom socket. No hot shower at night. Not a very pleasant experience for first night. And $37 for one night!

My sister and I and my 2 nephews stayed here yesterday and OMG what a [--] hole! Cabin was disgusting! Filthy inside and out! No air con! Windows falling apart! Dirty dirty dirty! The mattresses my nephews slept on where thin and falling apart and looked about 20 years old! The only good point about this park is the location! The wildlife there is beautiful but they have signs everywhere telling u not to feed any of the wildlife! Personally I think they need to work on their strengths of location and wildlife a d not deter people from it! Avoid this place at all costs!

We won this stay on a travel auction site as did a majority of other vanners that we spoke to.The toilet doors and laundry were permanantly open allowing non paying public to walk in off the street and continually use these facilities.Plastic tents and cheap marquees littered some sites.
No maintenance to sites ( some of which had no water ) or amenities and no security at all.
If we had paid full price for our stay we would have requested a discount.The lesson that we have learnt is to check reviews before bidding on auction sites.Never again will we stay at this so called park on the river that is full of sewerage and a swing bridge that does not swing because it is closed for maintenance before Easter holidays .

We stayed in Kia-ora park and loved it. You feel like your in the bush and away from the rat race of the Main Street. They have redone the toilets and showers which was well needed. For the cost of the park it is a nice relaxing spot on the rive.

Room Tip: The sites on the river down the back of the park are great!

The location is beautiful and easy to get to places. Easy walking to beach, fishing, shops etc. dog friendly which is great as the national park does not allow dogs in the area.
Unfortunately tho, the facilities are old, dirty and I felt like I was in a "public" beach toilet block not a paid campers toilet block. No soap, creepy doors, not locked, no mirrors. Very very poor! Worst I have ever stayed in and soooo expensive for a camp site compared to the high quality of very budget caravan parks I've been too in the past. Budget caravan parks rate higher then this one.
Garbage trucks wake you up at 6:30am.
Very noisy due to pubs so close, and people drinking. High party area.

If you're going to LFCP - you have to be aware that you're going there for it's perfect location and proximity to shops, beach and other attractions. Don't go there if you're looking for a luxury / tranquil caravan park.
We stayed over the weekend and even with a full caravan park - they still only cleaned the toilets once a day. It definitely needed at least two, cleans!
They have a few parks in town and we were given a spot behind the supermarket - right at the back near the Lorne cottages. It was right next to a road which was unsealed, so dust was everywhere... but that didn't really bother us. What did bother us was the pissed backpackers that were coming and going down this road - past our tent up until the pub on the mainstreet closed at about 3:30am! Then... because we were behind the supermarket - at 6am on the dot (on a saturday / sunday morning) the dump truck was there emptying a number of dump masters just 100m away from where we were attempting to sleep! Not ideal.
I think if the local council actually spent some money on this park and upgraded the roads and facilities it would be amazing.
The positives were that there were security patrolling the park throughout the night.
It's just across the bridge from all the shops, cafes and restaurants.
They also allow dogs - which is why we picked this park.

Room Tip: Ask if you can have a drive around before they assign you a site - so you can pick your spot. Dont j...
