We stayed at this site recently and while we loved the camping site and the general upkeep of the park, we were very disappointed with the treatment we received from the woman (who I think is the owner) working there. As the group I was with was in our early 20's, we were told that we were let in as an 'exception' due to our age. We could not understand why it was an exception as we are all adults? We did not break any rules at all during our stay, which may be hard to do seems there were rules almost everywhere we looked at Kelso Sands Holiday Park. One evening my husband noticed that a family were exchanging coins so that they could get $1 coins (as the showers, BBQ etc. take $1 coins), so he came back to our site and suggested we go over together with our coins so that we could pay for the BBQ that night and showers the following morning. We got there as the father and daughter (I suppose they were) were leaving, and we were greeted with 'what do you want', with no smile and a definite tone. Anyway, we began exchanging coins, and received unnecessary remarks such as 'you're lucky I'm still here'. My husband suggested a coin exchange machine or similar, to which the woman began speaking of money, which I assumed was outgoings of the park as it was a large amount. My husband then commented jokingly that he 'better start saving', to which this woman remarked about his attitude. We have never been spoken to so abruptly and rudely, we are unsure why but my guess is she was behaving this way due to our age. This was not the only rude encounter we experienced. Anyway as I said, great park but will never be returning.
