Our original thoughts were that this park was over-priced but it seems that these were fairly standard "Sydney rates" - we're used to 'country' parks and prices The cabin was clean and comfortable and, despite the railway line running right beside the park, very quiet. Unfortunately the cabin was in need of some TLC and we discovered a large patch...

Our daughter had regattas on a consecutive Saturday and Sunday and this caravan park is only 10 minutes away. It is quiet and have a lovely pool and library. It is immaculate and the beds comfortable. We were able to have dinner delivered via Menulog and there are some groceries available to buy at the office. The cabin is well...

Stayed in a studio cabin as a couple for one night while in Penrith on a shopping trip. The room was small, but still was able to fit an ensuite bathroom w/shower, reverse cycle a/c, mini fridge, table/chair and queen size bed. Shared kitchen facilities (for more than the in-room coffee/tea kettle) were next door. All clean and fresh, and...

We stayed here for 8 nights and booked a new 2 bedroom deluxe cabin. It was lovely. The bed was ever so comfy,the shower was nice. The only down side was, there could have been a bit more bench space in the bathroom, was a very tiny sink and no room to put our toiletries bags except on the floor,...

We were a large group of 12 people and stayed for one night. We hired few cabins and the function room for a great price. We made full use of the cooking facilities. It was just great value for money not far from Sydney.

We stayed here on a weekend with children for a friend's 40th Birthday bash in Emu Plains/Penrith. The room was comfy with all the things you need in a small, yet clean cabin. Hairdryer, full kitchen, parking, porch, etc... The surroundings are very quiet and peaceful. They have an outdoor pool area for the kids and a little convenience store...
