“Beautiful scenery and riverside walks”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

The Camden Haven river provides an attractive and peaceful foreground to this well equipped and maintained reserve. There is adequate parking; a swimming area and clean public toilets. The river yields good fishing and there is a walking track right along to the river mouth

“Lovely beach/lake front park”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We stopped for morning tea and a walk. Well maintained foreshore park. Great view with a playground for the children. We have seen many reviews on wiki camps and others about people camping here and getting kicked out and fined by the rangers. As we were there yesterday we had a look for signs re camping overnight. It clearly states NO CAMPING or parking overnight.

“Great child friendly lake and beach area”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

Approximately 10 minutes from Port Macquarie. This area is great for children to swim. The lake area is shallow and the water warm. A great place for small children to play.
There's a good sized play area as well as barbecues and plenty of grass areas for a picnic.

“Good spot for a swim or a fish”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

The reserve has great areas for swimming and plenty of areas for a picnic and for kids to have fun in the sun. Fishing is especially good on the south side of the lagoon near the bridge.
