This Caravan Park, whilst situated right on the Highway, was what we have come to expect from a Big 4 Park. It's big...and beautiful....a friendly helpful staff member to book us in...as much grass as we could expect, Lovely clean amenities, and a delightful camp kitchen with beautiful timber dining room furniture, complete with lace tablecloths. There is a lovely TV room and a games room as well....a real pleasure to have stayed there..

Clean park although powered sites very uneven, great showers good water pressure & clean. Children's playground needs improving, needed to get a key every time from reception to access infant/ family bathroom which is a little annoying. Cost was $72 a night for a family of 6 (infant not charged) which is a bit rich.

Thank you for your review

The playground does require upgrading and we look forward to opening our brand new playground at the end of August for all the children to enjoy.

Thank you again

Pleasant surroundings, clean spacious amenities, hot showers with good flow, helpful staff, site not level and therefore we had to un hook on a drive through site. Would use again as it was better than the park we used going out a few months ago.

stayed for two nights on a powered site on our way north. Staff were very helpful and the caravan sites are of a long drive through type. They are a bit narrow which limits privacy ,if that's what you're after. We found them fine . the Ablutions were very clean and well maintained.
None of the powered sites are grassed ,which is normal for this part of the world.
All in all a good park that I would gladly return to.

Staff friendly and helpful. amenities spotlessly clean and large caravan sites.We were escorted to our site by park staff which is a nice touch.We thought that proximity to the highway would be an issue with traffic noise but that was not the case.

Check in service was very good. Ablutions were lovely and clean. Caravan site was not level and required one side of the van to be put up on chocks. The layout of the sites was odd and does not provide you with any privacy from the adjoining site. Cost of site at $43 per night is excessive, hence we only stayed the one night.

Stayed for the first time in this park, and would return, wish we had stayed last time as this is the best park in town. Many people that we had met, advised that this site was the best. Suited large vans, and you could stay hooked up (drive through) Amenities clean and tidy, and despite comments on noisy traffic, this is nothing compared to clanking shunting trains at other location.
