“Utilitarian - but young kids should enjoy it.”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

One night stay, travelled with wife and 2 y.o boy. Stayed in a Standard Cabin. Had great, sunny weather.

Reason for stay: Wife was working and the son and I needed a place to spend time while she worked. We were treating it as a mini-break.

Location - It's in a National Park and it does have access to the River (its 200 metres, through scrub and forest to the park boat ramp). Its not central to Echuca/Moama, you'll need the car to get about.

Park Features - the playground is a single piece adventure style climbing gym with slide, also has a large jumping pillow...and that's it. No swings or seesaws-we felt the lack, our boy LOVES swings. Has two pools, went to the larger one. which is cleverly designed for splashing areas for toddlers and deeper areas. Has shading canvas set up too. Has a variety of other features as indicated on their website but we didn't access them so won't comment. Will mention that there were a lot of different birds about.

Standard Room features - it was clean, cutlery/crockery provided was basic but worked fine/were clean. Flat screen tv, beds were firm and comfy. Linen & towels were provided, again clean but basic. For the 3 of us it was ok space wise.However for 4, or older child, or if it had been adverse weather then cabin fever is a definate risk. Plenty of storage, 1 double cupboard and 2 singles. However no lamps, just overhead lights and one of the switches was non-functioning(ie pushed into the wall). Additionally the screen sliding door was non-functioning too. The boy pushed it out quite easily, ending up on the ground with a very surprised face!

Cost - we paid $100 for this Standard Cabin and to be honest we've stayed at parks with a bigger sized cabin, but no real park facilities and paid considerably less. However the specific one I'm thinking of is off the beaten track (Donald) and not part of a tourist hub. Nonetheless on the way thru Echuca I noticed at least two motels offering cheaper deals with an included breakfast.

Conclusion: This Park did meet all our needs, very importantly, my son was entertained by the facilities he could access (so much so that his leaving the pool was, in his eyes, an apocalyptic disaster) however neither of his parents felt any strong attachment and if looking for a relaxing place to hang out in Echuca would look elsewhere. Its a bit aged and there's better locations (including caravan parks) for exploring Echuca. The wife has stayed at other Big4 parks and feels this is not one of the better ones on which Big4 can hang its hat.
