Noisy speedboats towing skiers, jet skis, , no tv reception, poor mobile phone and Internet coverage, not much wild life around. Not a patch on Lake Wivenhoe.
Ok it's election night and we have paid the $50 bond for a cable tv connection.... Well, we get all of 6 out of 10 channels working and no sound on Sky News. Rang reception to enquire but even Telstra can't string a call together here so we gave up after 3 dropouts in 3 minutes.
Its quite a walk to the refuse disposal point from the powered sites ......you'd think there could be a couple of wheelie bins nearby. Positively, they do have a dump point.
You can buy a "cabin here" starting at $155,000.... which would appear to include a fair old profit margin for the park ....and then you then you pay $350 to $450 a month in electricity and other fees and never own the land its on. They do advise you that it's not an investment. Naturally not too many "cabins" have been built to date. Wonder if the operators are surprised.
Previous reviewers have mentioned noise from unpowered camp sites quite correctly.
On the positive, this is a lovely location. There are fish cleaning facilities and ample toilet facilities.
