This is a good caravan park with great toilet/shower facilities, great swimming pools and easy access to the river. However we stayed there because it was advertised as pet friendly - even the sign on the entrance says Pets Welcome. However when we arrived, our small little Maltese Shitzu was not made welcome, the lady told us he better not bark all night and then told us in no uncertain terms that the dog was not allowed in our cabin - thats ok but there are NO facilities provided for pets. In the many other 'pet friendly' places we stay, there are water bowls and shelter provided for dogs. So we had no choice but to leave our dog tied up outside the cabin on at 42c day with no shelter, apart from what we could manage to put together with some picnic rugs we had. Advice: DON'T advertise as pet friendly accommodation when you are going to roll your eyes when you see the dog and make comments about the dog barking (even though he didn't) and certainly DON'T advertise as pet friendly accommodation when you don't do anything to make it pet friendly, in fact you make it pet unfriendly and make it clear the dog isn't allowed in the cabin, near the BBQs, near the pools or near the playground - which doesn't leave the dog anywhere to go!
