“Nice Park, Bad Time of Year”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

The Caravan site was fairly spacious, had some tree coverage which was a plus considering how hot it was! Bathrooms were immaculate the day we arrived, but over the next few days they got very untidy and unclean.
Great water pressure in the van, nice lake to walk around too!
Unfortunately it was packed as it was Tastes of Rutherglen weekend, and there were a few too many drunk grey nomads embarassing themselves. Some nights we were kept up past midnight by loud music, yelling and screaming, and one drunk woman singing in the toilet for hours past midnight.
I imagine at any other time of year this would be a nice and peaceful atmosphere

Room Tip: A caravan site near the lake would be ideal I would imagine

We are a motor homing couple who had had a long, disappointing day on the road. To find ourselves unexpectedly here at the end of that long day was sheer heaven! The lakeside site, golf course and Main Street within easy walk were all reasons our one night turned into more :) Ablutions were so clean and very accessible. Thank you for the hospitality, laundry assistance and sheer peace and quiet Lisa and Dennis.

Beautiful peaceful place with wonderful management. 1 block from the main street. Tranquil lake and excellant clean facilities. The vans are clean and well kept with all you need. This is the place l always base myself in Nth Victoria. l've been going there since Bungy and family were the resident managers years and years ago.

What a camp site. Everyone so happy and friendly. The toilet block is the cleanest freshest I have seen. Highly recommended. The non compulsory get together at 5pm by the lake is a great way to mingle with your fellow campers. Cooper our puppy says we will be back!

We had a powered site overlooking the lake on perhaps Rutherglen's busiest long weekend. Nothing was too much trouble for Lisa and Dennis, and their disabled amenities were very good. Great location, friendly people and walking distance to town - brilliant.

This park was a lovely surprise. The owners were very helpful and friendly. Loved the nightly happy hour down by the lake watching the beautiful sunset. There is lots to do here..lovely food and wine to taste.

The lake facilities are excellent and will only get better.

Congrats to Dennis and Lisa for what you have done in such a short time.

Booked in for 1 night & stayed a week. Amenities we clean & adequate.
The owners know how to make you feel welcome & ready for a chat.
Happy hour is an important part of caravanning & Rutherglen didn't disappoint.
