We stayed at the caravan park for 6 nights in a powered caravan site with an en suite The en suite was very tired and run down with plenty of mold around the shower door. The step in to the shower was over a small bath BUT was a foot high- not good for the elderly or the impaired. Friends...

I stayed here for a week, in one of the en-suite cabins. The facilities are aged, but that didn't make the stay any less enjoyable. The prices for accommodation are very reasonably priced and you definitely get good value for your money. The staff here were very friendly and helpful to us. It's very peaceful and quiet even though it's...

We booked this park for a get together and it really was just perfect for our needs They put us all together with plenty of space with our own bbq table and benches.

Okay, it is all not new. Which doesn't mean that it's old. The owners of this camp site work hard, but it needs some renewal here and there. But, everything was tidy and absolutely clean. Which is important and is what you expect. We payed AU$30 for a powered site, 2 adults in 1 campervan. The lady at the reception...

This Park is a little our of Ballarat and off the freeway, very quiet. It has big sites and nice shade trees. It is not a big park, but very easy to manoeuvre big vehicles. The amenities are clean and work well but well used over the years. We were here for Easter and found it very reasonably priced. The...

My wife and I have stayed here annually for the past six years en-route from Adelaide to Leongatha and return. We have used caravan sites and cabins without complaint. The cabins are well equipped and clean, the caravan sites close to facilities which, although old, are clean and functional. Park staff are friendly and helpful. We'll be back again this...

I camped with my teenage daughter, the write up on the park said it was quiet and peaceful, this was not true, all night long the constant noise of trucks and cars passing. The grounds were run down, the facilities were dirty and smelly. Our powered site area smelt like urine. I asked for a refund for our last 2...
