BIG4 Great Lakes at Forster Tuncurry
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 4, 2014

We have been coming to Great Lakes holiday park for four years. The main reason we stop here is the ability to keep your boat at the waterfront and the socialisation for my young son with other kids the park.
Now the park is a Big 4 I hope they start a kids club and put in a giant jump pillow like other Big 4 parks. We have found that a great way for kids to meet each other and a nice relief for the parents to have the kids occupied.
The park amenities are clean and well appointed. The sites aren't very big and you can feel quite parked in the holidays when it's full. Maybe some of the smaller sites need redrafting on the map.
The pool and playground are great and the camp kitchen is excellent.
The verandah is a great place to get together with friends.
The waterfront is the best park of the park with space for the kids to play cricket or run around.
Handy shop just out of the park gate to get ice and small goods.

Room Tip: Sites near the oyster sheds are noisy in the morning from the forklifts etc being used at the sheds.

we were on our way to Sydney and thought Tuncurry was a nice place to spend a couple of days. We had a beautiful spot over looking the water. The park is very clean and well managed. We hope to go back in the new year( same site), but with the boat, as my partner is a keen fisher man.

We have stayed here many times in our caravan, fabulous spot to take your tinny off the roof and put in the water at one of the two boat ramps, one for smaller boats and one for the bigger boats, great fishing with heaps of flathead to be caught near the oyster leases and lots of whiting In Nov. Wonderful pool area for the children and another pool for the bigger kids (adults), it is overlooked by the fabulous camp kitchen, with tv room and small library/sitting room adjoining. Staff are soo helpful and amenities exceptional. Once you've been you will want to come back

We really enjoyed our too brief stay on the ensuite site. The park is very clean and obviously well-managed. We came unprepared to park on a very uneven site and probably expected a concrete slab with an ensuite. The ensuite was first class and the staff were most welcoming.
We would most certainly stay again and recommend the park to others, while advising them about the need to be flexible about our site.

Room Tip: Could not cancel as we were in a van. Totally irrelevant to us

Our family of 5 stayed on an ensuite site for a week, we didn't want to leave! This is a very well managed park, all staff we came across were friendly and super helpful. The kids spent hours in the pool area. Great location near the Lake for afternoon walks and to wet a line. The only minor thing is we found the ensuite site quite small, even for our Jayco Swan.
