Despite telling the receptionist during the telephone booking and again on arrival that we had a large van, we were allocated a site that we barely squeezed into. Many vehicles have to be parked on the roadway in front of the vans and then moved in the morning to allow other vans to leave. The roadways are gravel which generates dust each time a car drives past. There are no pathways between van to get to the amenities block, you literally walk under someone's window and hope you don't trip over leads, hoses etc. A cumbersome check in process consisting of keys, hooks, handwritten receipts, a handwritten ledger and key deposit (allow 15 minutes!). Shop sells $3.80 bread each day which has been frozen and was not very fresh once thawed. On the plus side, the amenities were clean and the water hot. There is also a large playground opposite if you have kids. Also lots of shade, but this is what then caused the pokey sites. We stayed 2 nights and moved to another caravan park.
