“We will be back”
Reviewed December 4, 2013 via mobile

We stayed on a powered site while spectating at the Special Olympics for 5 nights. Loved it! Stockton is a nice little place. We enjoyed the beach, local pool (with our free pass from the holiday park), quick ferry trip to Newcastle, walks on the breakwall and around town. The park itself is clean, the staff are helpful and friendly and we plan on returning to spend more time enjoying the region's attractions and try out the new ensuite sites.

The facilities are good but we didn't like the setting too much. This is no doubt just a preference thing. We do however have to mention the staff who were so lovely. Really friendly and helpful - nice to see that they have chosen to work with people and actually enjoy it! This isn't always a . Thanks for the great hospitality!

Stayed here with my cousin for a couple of nights, when booking the staff was very helpful and very pleasant to deal with. The villa was THE best I've seen in a long time!!! Very modern, and loved the front verandah... Will definitely be staying here again when I come back to Stockton!!!

We stated here during the Easter break with our 2 yr old and 6 week old. Had a fantastic time.
Cabins are lovely and clean, have everything you could need. Are a little pricey for a caravan park - not for every budget. Other parks have similar cabins for cheaper. We could hear the waves crashing at night, was a 30 second walk down a direct access path to the beach.
Staff are friendly and helpful, very quiet at night. Great cafe with excellent coffee next door!!

We will becoming back.

Just a short 5 min ($2.50) ferry ride from Newcastle CBD is this lovely camp ground right on Stockton Beach and 2min walk from the Shipwreck Walk. Close to IGA, butcher, baker and bottleshop.

Sites are generous, flat and grassy. Toilets are clean and plentiful. Showers are free with good water pressure. Camp kitchen is well-equipped with gas stove, hot plate, microwave, toaster and kettle. There's plenty of undercover seating too.

Unlike so many other camping grounds this place doesn't have all those "do not do this" and "that is prohibited" signs. I found that refreshing.

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.

Not far out of Sydney and a world away from everything.

We camped here over Easter long weekend and found the facilities at the park very clean and well maintained. Stockton beach is at its door step and you can also go fishing on the breakwall. Very convenient location to explore the area or just chill out.

The sound of the waves lapping on the beach at night makes it that much more special.
