We stayed with 2 dogs in this fantastic place on an en-suite site - complete with artificial grass and the cleanest, most modern facilities we've ever experienced. Immaculately clean public amenities - BBQ's cleaned daily, garbage collected from individual sites, pool fantastic - and heated - much appreciated in winter - and a beautiful spot. Short walk to town and... More

We had a quick one night stop over in a self contained cabin which was lovely. It had a nice balcony that looked out to the water. The cabin was clean and very comfortable - somewhat larger than other cabins we have stayed in. Service was good. We are usually campers so we do plan to come back as it... More

Park is well set out. Staff are super friendly and helpful. Café on site. Amenities kept very clean. Take walk over bridge to Forster, lots of trendy eateries and cafes. Good swimming pool facilities. Quiet park and variety of birdlife. Beach not far away either drive or pleasant walk.
