We camped here for two nights over the Easter long weekend in 2013. Not being a keen camper, I was a little worried about the whole experience but looking back now - it was fantastic!
Firstly, the location is great. Away from the hussle and bussle of Newcastle but only a few minutes away by ferry should you wish to go out for dinner, movies, shopping etc. You can really park your car when you arrive and not use it again until you go home.
The park facilities are secure, clean and very well maintained. The toilets and showers were clean at all times and the roomy showers were a positive change from the other parks I've stayed. There is also a pin number on the toilet blocks - to keep out non-park guests.
The beach location is great - loved the walk along the pier every night.
Given we were camping, we used the "Campers Kitchen" every meal time. The facilities here are great - sinks to wash up, fridges, bbqs, microwaves, kettles and there is also two areas in case one becomes to busy (which wasn't an issue during our stay).
What really put me at peace of mind was that the park was "locked down" after a certain time and access was only via the front entrance where a security guard was located. This gave me great peace of mind.
Overall, I think Stockton Beach Holiday Park would be great for anyone -friends, family and couples.
Just to add - the park doesn't have its own pool facilities but the local council pool is literally next door and we were provided free passes to this pool if we wanted to use it.
