we have stayed here twice with friends . We wont visit again purely because of sandflies etc as both times we all looked like we had the chicken pox despite all efforts to control ( bug zappers, outdoor barrier spray, mosquito band, rid and sandalwood sticks) it sadly makes the stay very very uncomfortable however that isn't the parks fault,...

We stayed there for 2 nights. I've read lots of unpleasant feedback for this place but thought give it a go. The park is really big and spacious so compared to other places we had stayed we had a kinda privacy. Staff were friendly and helpful. Facilities were close by and clean. However, mozzies and midget are real problem. We... More

Came only for 1 night, so maybe my judgement is not fair. But compared to maybe like 5 or 6 other campsites around Australia where we stayed prior to this camp, this was the worst. No pool or water area for kids yet the charge per night was as if there was one... bathrooms average, the playroom kind of broken... More

The park is lovely the staff were friendly, the facilities were clean and well maintained. Ice, bait & general groceries are available at the park store & there is a games room & tv room. The mozzies & midgies are relentless, take citronella, automatic repellent sprays etc but I'm sure the midgies love this stuff, we were eaten alive and... More

We had 4 adults and 8 children and booked this place for 4 nights, in hindsight we should have only booked for 2 or 3 to see what the place was like as it says waterfront but I wouldn't recommend swimming there, Rainbow Beach is only a very short drive away though. Pros: camp-fire permitted, close to national forest and... More

We stayed for one night in peak holiday season and it was great that one night stays were an option. We stayed in a two bedroom villa which was clean, cheap, and in a good location (my son loved exploring the mud flats). Lovely greeting when we arrived. Nice and quiet, air conditioning was able to cope with the 33... More

Manager was friendly and easy to find park and is a short stroll to Carlo Point to go fishing but...WE WERE EATEN ALIVE!!! It's a midgie and mosquito paradise and you are on the menu. Went through 3 lots of repellent on the first night and day but it was too late...they take seconds to bite you so spray, douse,... More

Out of control bogan paradise. Avoid at all costs. Stay at your own peril unless you enjoy chain smoking drunken idiots who smuggle all their friends in and management does nothing about it. The park is full of sand flys and mozzies. Rainbow beach is such a nice place and is full of nicer places to stay.

On check in the staff were friendly (receptionist and assistant managers). Amenities were well laid out for an older park and very clean. Being able to park our caravan anyway we liked in our area was also great. I think the one dog rule should be changed to allow 2 dogs instead of just 1 personally as this will help... More
