My family have been staying here every Xmas for 17 years and love the park, it is within walking distance to the top and bottom ends of town excellent shops, eateries, very friendly people in the stores. It is a beautiful spot, the kids spend hours playing in the creek and adults take their chairs and books/drinks and sit in the creek, some even take their tables and play cards! Lists of shade which is great because Bright can be very hot at Christmas.
My children thoroughly enjoyed the baker coming through the park every morning, ice cream truck each evening and the clowns that walked through the park advertising the kids club activities.
There used to be the entertainer Paris come and spend the evening singing to campers, it was always a great night with almost everyone in the park taking their chairs and a drink over they bridge to listen, there was also a movie night - the new owners no longer have any entertainment. There was always a carvery night where everyone paid a reasonable price and got together for a lovely community meal, this also doesn't happen anymore.
Maybe I'm living in the past but these were events that we always looked forward to, Previous staff were lovely and often walked around the park talking to campers. Amenities may be old but always clean. We have got to know some of the people who have been going there for 30+ years.
Since the new owners arrived, they have put in new power poles which were needed but the price has gone up $18 per night in past 3 years. Staff polite but very business like. We have also had our site changed with no notification. It is now the price you would pay for a site on NSW coast. I think it us now too expensive for what you get at the park. This sadly will be our last holiday there this Christmas.
