“Nice caravan park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

Stopped off for the night with the caravan on the way home from holidays.

Quick and simple checkin, nice site, clean bathrooms (and lots of hot water after camping for a week!).

The jetty was great for some fishing with the kids. Agree there isn't much in Karuah but a nice place to stop.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

We booked into this cabin park instead of one in Port Stephens area and are so pleased we did as we thought the off the beaten track location was very nice and lovely views from the jetty across the bay. We also discovered that Karuah Jetty cabin prices much better value than the Port Stephens area cabin parks!

We spent there a night, so peaceful, very close to a lake, no free wi-fi as promised ( this is a big minus for all big4 parks;( )
The pool was great the air pillow was great!!!! We loved this place. Even had a great BBQ facility on the balcony.

Loved it!!!!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

Spent 1 nite in a one bedroom cabin over the christmas period.
Positives: the cabin was spacious and had cooking facilities. the grounds have 2 pools, a nice tennis court and volley ball area and a jumping pillow (this was flat however whilst we were there, which was disappointing) so its particularly good for families and kids.
Negatives: big4 karuah jetty is located in the western part of port stephens, away from all the tourist activities, which may be a good thing for some people but was a bit of a negative for us, as it felt a little bit isolated. the park is located on the banks of a river with a mangrove swampy type feel to it, and hence there are a few insects around.
Overall wasnt a bad place to stay by any means, and particularly for families is a good option.

Lovely little campground. Has a very picturesque petty, so good for fishing etc. Stayed in a spacious, clean, comfortable cabin for just 1 night. Very affordable too. Looked like a new look was being built making a substantial outdoor facilities for kids.
