sites quite spacious. Amenities quite clean. Scenic area beside river. Shop on site was handy. Grounds well maintained. Helpful grounds staff, very friendly. We had a very pleasant stay. Pool doesn't need to be heated in the summer months.

Great sites - fake grass is fantastic.- it never really gets sopping wet in pouring rain. Kids had a ball. Had 2 dogs with us and we had plenty of walking areas in and around the park. Everything very clean and well cared for.

Stayed for 2 nights during Xmas. Although it was Xmas period we still thing the price for the small site rather expensive. Upon leaving we felt the maintance staff who cuts the grass really rude. We'd already packed up by 10am (check out time) while we were standing on the site the mower guy without consideration or asking proceeded to...

We stayed at the Big 4 at Tuncurry over the New Years week. The park was full! However it was always clean and well maintained with garbage collected from every camp site every day and replacement garbage bags left so there was never rubbish lying around. We enjoyed paddle boarding on the waterways which border the park and the kids...

The park was very clean, including the amenities blocks and cooking facilities. The shop next door was well stocked and the 2 for 1 coffee was very welcome. Quite centrally situated, easy walk to most eateries.

Always a great family holiday! Kids have a blast in the pool, jumping pillow, play equipment & riding their bikes. The location is perfect - walks along the water & over the tuncurry - forster bridge! Always fun spotting the Dolphins.

Have stayed many times and love this park. Unfortunately on our latest visit there was a large group of people that were very noisy late at night and early morning. Who also made it hard to use the pool as they had taken over the area on several occasions. Next time I will check there are no large groups/family staying...
