Lake Ainsworth Holiday Park

Heading off to Lennox Head and surrounding areas in early February and was just wondering if anyone has stayed at the Lake Ainsworth Holiday Park?

Hi NameNo,

Spent plenty of time at Lennox, but no time at the camp ground.

Lennox great spot, one of the best, great surf and beaches. I have seen the camp ground, looks OK, should be fine as it is a Big 4, and IMO Big 4 are very well appointed camp grounds and usually well maintained. Lake Ainsworth Holiday Park is in a very good spot, and a not a long walk to centre of town, about a 1klm.

Nice short drive to Byron Bay if you need that type of fix. Also short drives to Ballina, Lismore, Nimbin(take your combi), Brunswick Heads and a bit further to Nightcap National Park.


Sorry I can't advise about staying at the grounds.

Safe travels - Robert

Hi there

A group of us stayed there on the weekend and have done so before. The Park has been upgraded since our last visit and was very comfortable. We stayed in a cabin which had it's own ensuite, a double bed and three single bunk beds. There is a great camp kitchen now and the park is right next to the lake or walk across the road to the beach and the surf club for brekkie, lunch or snack which was also great! The park has a varying range of cabins or campsites.

Had dinner at an amazing Thai restaurant called Lennox Thai Garden, best thai food for ages!

Love Lennox! It's a little trip back to what Byron was like about 25 years ago hehee!
