Great accommodation, clean, great facilities, friendly staff only let down is the cost. Way too much for a caravan park

We stayed at Beacon resort with our motor-home. Very friendly/helpful staff. Amenities were very clean. The family bathroom was a very big hit! Really nice indoor Pool good in winter. All was ok apart from Powered Site (Drive through) which was a bit narrow. Also, community kitchen and area was too far to reach. It should have been more central or, given the shape of the camp, a 2nd kitchen should be built to serve other side.

Room Tip: The newly finished cabins look fantastic. We asked to go trough one and were very impressed.

Great Park for kids and families. We had the Lonsdale Unit - a new modern unit with lovely fittings and furnishings - we wanted for nothing. We had a 4 year old who had a great time in the heated pool and on the bouncing castle. Staff were very helpful and went out of their way to assist

Big4 Beacon Resort was a fantastic family experience. There is plenty of fun to be had, especially for children (which allowed the adults to relax). There was piece of mind for us pre-schooler parents, as the place is not too big and overwhelming, when it comes to locating our wandering children! Very clean and fantastic service (always with a smile). A great place to let children, be children, and have a little freedom, and if the weather isn't inviting for outdoor play, there are plenty of indoor activities too. Will stay again.

Room Tip: Stay close to the jumping pillow if you have small children.

Great for older kids with indoor pool, bike hire games room and tv room. If you have young toddlers like my 18month old its very hard to keep them amused especially if the weather is bad like our stay. It was raining the whole time, he went in the pool but it was still cold the toddler pool is still too deep for him so he had to be a float still. There is no toddler play room or a toddler play ground no swing more for older kids. We did leave early because he was bored and if the weather is bad there is nothing really to do with the kids around the area as all activities are outdoor. Although we requested a portacot and highchair to be in the room it wasnt there on arrival so we had to organise that and set up cop ourselves. The cabin was smaller then it looks on the website but was clean and well equiped. Shower was very touchy with water takes a good 4minutes to get the water right. Bathroom door is sliding with no lock so we had to put a chair infront of it to keep my son from getting into it. Heating was good and plenty of blankets supplied. Tv and dvd in lounge and a tv and vhs in bedroom although not digital channels in bedroom. Our cabin had no balcony and with the bad weather we couldnt sit outside undercover those cabins that did have balconies had no gate across them so little ones could get out. All up it the weather was better we probably would have spend most of the day at the beach to give my little one something to do, for older kids like my 9yr old it was good. I prefered the bellarine park by far.

For our first time away in our caravan we could not have picked a better park. The facilities for the kids were fantastic, clean bathrooms, friendly staff. Will definately be coming back.
