After reading other reviews we were comfortable that this would be a no frills but friendly and welcoming place to stay, unfortunatley our experience was to the contrary. We arrived into a virtually empty park and checked in with the two managers (husband & wife) who run the place. Both seemed relaxed, unhurried, bored and not overly friendly or helpful. Having had somewhat of a hard/busy day knocking off work early and packing, organising kids and travelling we were looking forward to a nice relaxing time. Outside of being given little information on what to do in the area we were VERY disappointed that of the four beds in our little and aging cabin, only one was made up - the only bed that was, was the easy one to make, the others were all awkward and difficult - thankfully I was able to make them up as neither my kids or my wife (who is suffering from a debilitating condition) would have been able to do so. Linen was provided for two more beds which was all we needed but it took the first 40 minutes of my time to relax there to make up the remaining beds we required - thank goodness we didn't arrive late with tired kids!!! Also disappointing was the fact that there were 8 or so new looking cabins ALL of which were unoccupied and could have been offered to us & others given the lack of occupancy at the site (a common practice in the Tourism Industry to encourage word of mouth recommendation). With the East Coast looking to encourage people to visit the area after the bushfires (which really haven't affected the area at all from a tourists perspective) we had hoped the operators themselves woul be behind this and go out of their way to encourage positive comments, not the case here. We'll certainly visit the area again but will not contemplate this accommodation again!
