We stayed here over the Christmas/ new year break during a heat wave. The resort reminded of an 'American summer camp at the lake' that I have seen in movies.
The experience and setting was fantastic, my 13 year old daughter swam in the lake all day and enjoyed the various activities that were offered at the resort like kayaking, rowing and archery.
I enjoyed running early in the morning through the forest on the loop trail around the lake which was beautiful and refreshing.
The down side to this place was certainly the rooms. We stayed in the lakeside cabins which were on the water. There is no airconditioning and the TV's are old and small. So I can see that this is where they may let some people down. However, there was a pedastal fan and so a wet flannel and the fan did the job just fine for us when we went to bed.
I don't see Karri Valley Resort as a place to visit if you want to, or value the activity of sitting inside and watching TV. However, it is certainly a place for people who love the outdoors and being active.
The restaurant only opens for breakfast and dinner and I found every meal quite good. Although,I much preferred lying next to the lake on the grass and having a picnic.
Overall, I recommened this place to a family with children who love the water and who love being outside.
Oh and there is no mobile reception!
