We chose an ensuite camping site down the back of the park, mainly to avoid the highway noise for our camper trailer. The sites were extremely large and very accommodating. There is still the drone of the highway, mainly at night.
The park had some great parkland for the kids to play cricket & soccer. The jumping pillow was always overrun by larger kids making it impossible for the under 6's to have a fair go.
The go karts are only single seated and suitable for larger kids 7+, where other parks offer tandems where the parents can ride with the kids.
Swimming pool & water slide were very good, as you would find in most good parks
The park needs to work on more kids activities, especially around school holidays.
A sour taste was left in my mouth with the cafe by the pool. First instance we ordered coffees and were given the wrong order. The blonde waitress thought it was her job to argue the point with the customer. This was very poor customer service. Secondly, if you wish to add a 10% surcharge to alcoholic drinks, please have a sign on display. The staff seemed very unorganised and flustered, this showed in the customer service.
Great park for location close the theme parks but ranked poorly compared to Hastings, Forest Glen & Treasure Island
