We stayed here for 2 nights recently. We arrived after hours so they had the info pack waiting for us at reception. We had a powered site and we were sheltered from our neighbours by hedges.
The power worked but not at 240V as we couldn’t power our microwave or the power sockets. It gets very cold at night in the park but we couldn’t power our heater.
The camp kitchens are great, they have wood and fireplaces so you can get a fire up to keep the kitchen warm. They have microwaves, bbqs, hot plates and kettles. The bbqs were free which was great.
The toilets were clean but the shower has a 5 minute limit which is frustrating if you have long thick hair to wash!
The reception staff were helpful and friendly and let us use their phone to call ahead to another campsite.
The location is great, just across the road from the shuttle bus to Dove Lake.
