We arrived with the Magalies Express and visited the Day Visitors area. The pool and ablution block was very clean. We enjoyed the food and ice cream served. There was sufficient entertainment for our 2 year old and the helicopter amused him for hours.

Had a fabulous time with friends at the stream, water freshing. The camp site was very clean, ablution block had hot water all weekend and cleaned every 3 hours. The atmosphere there was very calming from the everyday city lives

I only got to spend about two hours there, but the facilities in the day section are really limited, one swimming pool, a few jumping castles and expensive food for what you get.
