“Honeymooners”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

We only stayed one night as Eden was just a stopping point on the way to bigger things. Firstly the receptionist was rude and didn't seem like she wanted to be there, didn't feel very welcome at all. The one great thing was due to it being quiet we had a pick of any site we wanted. The powered site had heaps of room. The camp kitchen was old and felt dirty using it, but there was a sign saying it is going to be renovated soon. Yes the park is close to the main road but that didn't bother us at all, we actually found it very quiet. Eden is a beautiful place though and getting up early to catch a glimpse of a whale jumping out of the water was a highlight of our trip. Id be willing to come back again in the future though...after the camp kitchen is renovated

We stayed in a cabin which was the best value of all the 7 caravan parks we stayed in on our recent holiday. The cabin was very big and had 2 separate bedrooms, a bathroom and a big lounge. The bed was either queen or king (can't remember which) and had electric blankets and the main bedroom had a walk-in wardrobe. The cabin was fresh, lots of windows, all with nice curtains, and well lit. There were 2 sofas and a full kitchen with the sorts of equipment you'd have at home. Not a wobbly, scraped non-stick frying pan in sight! The deck has a table and chairs. This was also the cheapest cabin we stayed in. Some of the others were tiny things that cost heaps more. Across the road from the caravan park is a lovely flat walk along the edge of the lake - part of it is boardwalk - to the surf beach where you get great views of the bays. Reception gave us a map of the town which showed the walks. We would without question stay here again. Eden is a lovely village/town and worth more than just an overnight. NB While you are in Eden, visit the whale museum which, amongst other things, tells you of an orca that worked with the whalers to help them catch baleen whales. It is most interesting. I got talking to some other tourists who raved about the half-day whale watching cruise they had just done (make sure it is whale watching season!). This place was such good value that I actually checked the receipt later to make sure that we had paid what I'd thought as I couldn't believe the low cost.

Room Tip: We stayed in Cabin 6 (actually called a villa).

excellent value for money and very well appointed. Great service from reception and close to town. We would definitely recommend for two couples travelling together. No undercover parking at cabins or hard surface but the grass was firm, as we were travelling on motorcycles this is just a note for others. The standard of the cabins was excellent and Kaia in reception even came out in the rain to give us our keys so we did not have to get off the bikes!

My kids aged 6,8and 10 and I loved staying here. We walked from the park, along the lake to the beach. Kids loved the go carts and jumping pillow. We had a spa villa which was fantastic value. Very short drive into town centre. Grounds were very tidy. Staff so friendly.

We were very impressed with this park especially the quality of the cabins offered. Stayed in their "entry level" cabin and it is without a doubt an excellent cabin for 2 people not just for overnight but a week or more. Good service from Steve & the owners know exactly what is required in running a park - well done. Value for money is exceptional.

Weather was great, no big crowds, staff very helpful - winter in Eden is great at Big4 Eden - We stayed 15 days instead of 5 days we had planed. Love the place. All you grey nomads out there forget about going up north for the winter with their high prices, you only need go to Eden Big4 and best of all its pet friendly too.................

We stayed for 10 nights on a powered ensuite site, (travel auction). Reception was very good and helpful. Site was large and all grass. Ensuite was good, but need some maintained and updating.
Park lay out was good with permanent site away from the main camping area, laundry and camp kitchen undergoing renovations. Park is good for all campers with swimming pools, park BBQ,s and play areas for children. Abundant bird life and a few kangaroos around the park. Walking distance to main swimming beach, town centre is around a 4 minute drive, courtesy bus pickup for the 2 clubs. Plenty to do and see in Eden, we enjoyed our stay.
