“A relaxing stay at Kalgan River”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2011

We found this park quite by accident and booked 2 x chalets for 5 nights. Our booking was handled efficiently and all queries were fully answered - we found the staff to be extremely helpful however there are quite strict park rules which are there to maintain the amenity. We knew what was included and what we had to bring (which was all lined & pillows for the single beds and beach towels). We had 1 x 2 bedroom and 1 x 1 bedroom chalet for 4 adults and 3 children. The chalets are well appointed with all the kitchen equipment you could want for a holiday stay. They were exceptionally clean when we arrived although the 1 bed was a little more dated than the 2 bed - it just felt like an old style family holiday shack and both provided plenty of room for the family to spread out.

This is a terrific place for families - heaps of room and cabins not piled on top of each other. We played golf & tennis (yes court is a bit wobbly but it was just a fun holiday game not Wimbledon). We also swam off the boat ramp beach, played cricket & soccer, fed kangaroos and went fishing. The kids would have loved some canoeing but it was a bit windy. In summary - a lovely location for a relaxed family getaway away from the hustle. Nearest shop is a couple of kilometers away but you do have TV & DVD in chalets.

Our only comment would be that some kind of solid outdoor cover would be preferable to just shade cloth as you have nowhere outside to get out of the rain and proper bath mats would stop a lot of water being trekked all through the cabin. We actually ended up buying one for our cabin so take spare towels or a bathmat. Beds were comfy and we had a great sleep. Would recommend as a great place to get away and just chill out.

Very clean toilet and shower facilities, camp kitchen good, hire canoes in good order with provided life jackets. Dangerous trees in windy conditions in tenting area, tall and dropping branches and sticks onto tents. Our campsite that was clearly for one group, but had 2 groups stuck onto it. Power cords were connected to a series of dodgy power boards and stuck with gaffer tape (nowhere near electrical best practice, just dangerous). Run down tennis courts. Some staff grumpy, terse and inattentive.
