We booked to stay here for 5 nights between Christmas and New Year as part of a trip along the Great Ocean Road in our motorhome. We only stayed two nights and couldn't get out fast enough. The location is good - right next to the Pertobe Adventure Playground and the beach and the Pavilion Cafe can be thoroughly recommended. However the campsite is enormous and so nothing is close. It was so big that we didn't feel able to let our children play outside - there were so many people packed in, there are no children's playgrounds nearby and it was very noisy. I couldn't see a kitchen or laundry room and after seeing the toilet block (built in the 1950's, hadn't been updated and was absolutely filthy) I wasn't inclined to look. There is a noisy circus/fair at the entrance and we were told when we checked in that everyone had to wear a wrist band on New Years Eve because they were worried about volumes of people that would be coming onto the campsite. We really didn't want to stay and so we went back to the delightful, quiet, child friendly campsite in Port Fairy that we'd been staying at before and appreciated it one hundred times more!
