We decided after Covid to enjoy a winter road trip. We phoned ahead knowing that winter weather can affect the camp sites. The owners were most helpful. They had taped off the most bogged sites and geared us to the best they had. The kitchen and amenities were fine for our purpose. This is an older campground with older amenities but everything was available to us. We enjoyed our one night stay with grandkids at this camp ground. There is a playground and it is close to the beach.
We stayed at the park for two nights in the double bunk cabin with two other friends. Trish was so incredibly accommodating throughout our stay. We arrived after check in, and she was kind enough to make arrangements for us to collect our key with no fuss. She also came to chat and to make sure we were settled in well. The facilities were excellent and sparkly clean. There is a lot of space and privacy as well as space for kids to play.

The motel unit we stayed in had a comfortable bed and a great shower. The owners are friendly and helpful. A real bonus was our small dog was able to stay with us. We really appreciated that! We enjoyed our stay and are keen to return.
Everything about the place is great. The owners are very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The ablutions were clean and met all my needs. I was on a powered caravan site and dog friendly. Will definitely be back to stay longer. Recommend Sharkies Cafe/Bar also; short walk from camp.
