“Nice weekend away”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

We just spent 2 nights in a cabin at the BIG4 Maroochy. The cabin was clean and everything we expected. The kids enjoyed jumping on the jumping pillow, playing tennis and playing in the playground. Unfortunately the pool was very cold. If you are looking for a kid friendly caravan park in a quiet location, then this ticks the boxes.

We stayed for three nights on a grass tent site and we all (family of five plus two friends) enjoyed our stay.

When booking over the phone we were offered a lakeside pitch or a grassy patch on the main campsite, we chose the main site (for safety reasons) and it was a good choice, next to the water we would have ended up worrying too much for the safety of our inquisitive toddler.
The campsite facilities were pretty much the same as in the other Big 4's we stayed at - camp kitchen with BBQ, kettle, toaster, microwave, fridge/freezer. One morning we were still sitting in the kitchen area when the cleaner arrived and were impressed by how thoroughly she cleaned everything. Same for the showers/toilets which we found to be very clean.

We liked the set up of the campsite, with all play/entertainment facilities (pool, jumping pillow etc) located in one area. One evening we had a bbq while the kids were watching the outdoor movie, and it was nice to be able to sit back and enjoy it while the kids were still in sight and we knew that they couldn't wander off (fenced off area around the play facilities).

Only (small) downsside was that we would have liked the showers/toilets to be located much closer, it felt a bit like a trek when a child needed the toilet in the middle of the night.

We love the area and liked the campsite, so we're likely to return!

Room Tip: Choose the main campsite over the lakeside tent pitches if you have small children. Lakeside is pret...

We went to this place for the long Easter break. The place itself is nice, nothing fancy but it provides a nice environment for families.
On the day we arrived, we went to try the restaurant.
Staff was severely rude, unhelpful and even hurt my girlfriend by closing the door on her arm. Nobody apologised.
We ordered food and were told to wait for 3 hours until it got ready. Please forgive my lack of patience, but I do not think it takes 3 hours to deep fry a basket of potatoes, especially if the restaurant is empty.
After a few more rude comments from the attendant, we decided to leave. At that point, we were finally treated as guests by one lady in the restaurant, who said she would see if she could get our food to us faster.
Oh, I almost forgot, they ran out of fish on Good Friday before 5pm. I mean, come on.
All in all, bathrooms for camping were alright, the facilities were fairly old but suitable, can’t complain.
It rained and we had to leave early, but that is not their fault.
I would maybe go back, but definitely stay away from the restaurant.

Room Tip: Stay away from the restaurant.

We arrived late afternoon and needed accommodation for one night, the staff were most obliging and gave us a very good 1BR villa at the front of the park. It was clean and spacious with excellent facilities. The holiday park was right on the Maroochy River, which had a lovely walk-way. Well worth a late afternoon or early morning walk! We would stay again!

We arrived late after abandoning our bush camping due to rain. We were met by helpful staff and shown a number of sites. Really helped us settle in. Clean facilities, nice site by their lake. As a Big4 member we value the quality that is provided.

We stayed in this park for nearly 3 weeks in July - August 2012.
We have travelled through a lot of our wonderful country over the last few years & stayed in caravan parks of all types over this period , & I would put this park up with some of the best, the facilities are excellent , service from the management & staff made our stay an enjoyable one.
We had a situation on the day of departure with a vehicle that was less than cooperative in the electrical dept. which required expertise beyond our knowledge . The help & assistance that was volunteered by the owner or manager of the park was really welcomed by us, he went out of his way in providing his own vehicle to help us to get up & going.
We are looking forward to staying in this park again when next we get the opportunity.
