Oxely Anchorage Caravan Park
Reviewed October 12, 2011

The camping part of Oxely Anchorage Caravan Park may be quite OK but the cabins are not. See photos to get an idea. When we arrived the smoke alarm was on the table without a battery and there was no globe in the single bedside lamp. The cabins look OK on the website but in reality they are jerry built. There were live electrical wires hanging down from the ceiling in the second bedroom within childs reach from the top bunk. All these things are extremely dangerous. Imagine in the dead of night fumbling around to turn on a bedside lamp in the dark? All it would take is for a finger to brush the live terminals (no globe) and it would be all over. We spoke with the management and items were attended to as they cropped up but really it is not good enough. They went on to explain how they had money from the owners to upgrade the television reception and replace the old sets. At $80 per night it was too expensive for what we got.

Room Tip: There were no good rooms.

Hi Chris D.
I'm very sorry to hear we didn't meet your expectations when staying with us.
The park is now under new management with all new staff. We have disposed of ALL the old Cabins as shown in your photo's. We now have brand new 1 & 2 B/R resort style cabins. We also have new management and staff that take extreme pride in providing excellent customer service and cleanliness. Please come and try our new accommodation, we promise you won't be disappointed.
Hope to see you down the track.
