“Good site but could do a bit better!”
Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

I am writing this review sitting on the deck of our poolside villa. Having only experienced French and Italian campsites I wasn't sure what to expect and overall we had an amazing weekend and will definitely visit this area again.

Positives: The poolside villa although a bit on the small side was spotlessly clean and looked brand new. The cot I requested was there and a waterproof sheet and cot sheet was supplied as requested.

The kids loved the jumping pillow and the pool and the river access is great for paddling and stone throwing, we even saw an echidna on our river walk!

Negatives: The site is next to the busy Great Alpine Highway so I'm watching cars going by from my deck. The noise isn't too bad at night though.

The pool is cold but clear but with lots of bugs especially the baby pool.

One day the internet is free, the next we had to pay - bit inconsistent.

We had a great time and the site is beautiful with lots of trees and the location is great.

Thank you for taking the time to rate & review us on Tripadvisor.
I would like to apologise for the mix up with being charged for internet on your second use. The first lot you would have received as complementary usage from the Manager.
Great to hear you enjoyed your stay and the area and we look forward to seeing you again.

We stayed in the cottage with two families. The park facilities are excellent; in addition the cottage was VERY clean, including the bathroom. The only down-side is that we could have done with more blankets than one per bed as the nights were cold. However, the staff were really helpful when we asked for additional sheets and towels. It has to be one of the best parks in which we have stayed. We'll stay here again in the near future (and bring some additional bedding!).

We love this place so much! We come and stay here at least twice a year. My two young boys love the jumping pillow and the park was absolutely spotless and the managers were so friendly and helpful. The cabin was warm and clean with great mountain backdrop. Will not stay anywhere else but here, will definitely come back again. Love...love this place!

I My 2 children and I met a friend from interstate who came with her 3 boys. We shared the cottage that was roomy even though there were 7 of us in it. It was lovely and clean and smelt beautiful.

The staff were friendly and helpful and were actually interested in us and where we had traveled from ect.

I can't fault this place and the mountain back drop was just stunning! There is so much to do in this area and around this park 2 nights just wasn't enough!

Will definatly return, we plan to make this our annual meeting place.

Our children are aged from 20 months to 10 years and they all gave it the big thumbs up, loved the jumping pillow and the buggies ( peddle cars) we hired for them, which, were reasonable at $10 half an hour.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The cottage looks as though it has been recently refurbished, it sleeps 9?

We had a weekend out of the city. The park was very clean and the manager was very friendly. She gave us valuable advice on what to see and do on a rainy day.
We had the use of a friends caravan so did no need to use the facilities, so cannot comment on them. It is in a wonderful location with a great mountain backdrop. Very close to Bright and surrounding towns and mountain attractions.
We woke to kookaburras each morning.

Room Tip: We used a friends caravan so the choice was made for us.

I spent a lovely weekend recently at the Big 4 Porepunkah Holiday Park. Being a solo traveller I am very selective where I spend my nights and this park ticked all the boxes. Great amenities, the cabin was spotlessly clean, beautiful grounds and a great sense of tranquility. I will definitely be back

Great place to relax and unwind. Love what they have done with the park since were there last year. Still great friendly welcome as we checked in. We enjoyed being able to hire the bikes & using the rail trail this time. Kids loved the peddle carts & jumping pillow! .
We were told there should be a mini golf course there when we come back this Christmas which will keep us & the kids happy.
Hubby tells me the mens amenities look great after having some work done on them.

Room Tip: New Poolside villas look very nice. Didn't stay in one but did sneak a peak through the windows.
