The hospitality at this place is great. The cabins are your standard caravan park cabin, but with a lakeside wooden décor, overlooking the lake.
The road on the property is terrible – potholes everywhere. Having said that, the lady who runs it looks she’s snowed under with running the café, so there is no time for infrastructure improvements.
Customer service is fantastic. There’s not much else in the area as far as accommodation, but expect to pay similar ($128) to what you can get a 4 star motel for in Kingscote on a multiple night special.
We were happy with our stay and recommend it to other - especially families looking for budget accommodation (a cabin has 1Q and 4S bunks)
The café was nice and best visited in non-busy times of the day. It’s open til late in summer and there were not many people come through after about 5pm.
Dont forget to say hello to the koalas that greet you on the trees when you first arrive!
