“Nice little spot not too far from launceston”
Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for one night with our campervan. Arrived after reception closed, but the caretaker was welcoming and offered for us to pay in the morning instead of in the dark. We had a nice grassed site, not too far from the amenities block. It wasn't too far from launceston either.

Stayed June 2014, traveled as a couple

We spent 4 nights on a powered site. Although is sounds a long way out of Launceston it really is only 10 minutes down the road by car and you are in the heart of the city. Our site was grassed. The bathrooms were reasonably close although the showers in the main block are very, very small with no where to put your bag. Some showers had one hook, others none and there was not a shelf. The en-suite style at the other end of the park were better but did not seem particularly clean but that is probably because people don't read the signs that say 'close the door' with the result that dirt can blow in.
Staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed on a powered site in our Caravan which is self contained didn't need the amenities but as you do checked them out & they were very clean, good camp kitchen, lovely little herb garden, good place to base yourself if you want to check out Launceston & surrounding areas, prices average cost of most Holiday Parks in Tassie.

I stayed with a large group at Hadspen and the facilities and staff were excellent. The cabins are slightly larger than in other parks and everything was just perfect. Very short drive into Launceston too!

Horrible. Would not recommend for a tent. All facilities are opposite end of park including toilet! The camp kitchen is disgusting and questionable OHnS, no fire safety at all! Not to mention indoor BBQ s in camp kitchen Instead of a stove, or ventilation! Don't waste your time here, frequent traveller advice. Clean site really outdated so hard to say how clean

Room Tip: Tents, stay away. Motor homes, sure you can find better.

We stayed two nights on a powered site with some friends on the adjoing site and had a great time ! Friday night happy hour and sausage sizzle was great to get to meet some other travellers and only a gold coin donation required if u want a sausage !!
Close to Longford,Launceston and surrounding areas, ammenities clean and the grounds are immaculate, The staff were friendly and helpful.
Dont know where the noisy racetrack is though !
Having the IGA and liquour store out the front of the park is a bonus too, also fuel and gas available. Would thoroughly reccomend staying here.
Yes there is some road noise but we didnt find it to be an issue.

Love this little park. Great camp kitchen, great herb garden. So handy having IGA on your doorstep when you are an avid cook. Close to Launceston but Woolworths is only 5 minutes away if IGA doesnt have what you need. Not sure about race track noise as no race tracks around there area. Yes there is a little road noise - sometimes - but not enough to interrupt sleep. A lovely walk to the river for a picnic lunch. A little drive up the road to Entally House - make sure you stay for devonshire tea.

Friday nights in holiday season the managers put on a sausage sizzle for all the park guests. Staff are all very friendly and nothing is too much trouble.The secondary amenities are much better than the main ones. Noise complaints are taken seriously and acted on. Would highly recommend this park as it is away form the commotion of the "city"
