As previously stated a lot of "permanent " sites but no one here, not holidays. Staff very friendly and offered seniors discount, paid $27 2A p/n and no extra for the dog. Offered TV cable at no cost. Amenities very clean even though dated but more than adequate. Stayed a couple of nights very quiet park with good access off the highway.

Caravan park full of permanents and holidaymakers, who either have their own caravan on site or hire/rent a cabin. There are actually three available spots for overnight rental. We had one, a young couple had one and a smaller van had the last one. The park is down in a gully and it's hard to access from the ?ld Princes Highway but easier from South Street. Not a real good spot for long term caravaning. TV reception was with the aid of a lead from the office, which was at no extra cost, channel 9 was lousy after 6:00pm, as was all their associated channels but the other channels were OK. There was a kids park to play in, as well as a pool. The amenities were clean and usable. There is no official 'dump point, but use the toilets and clean up after yourself. Overall the park is OK for permanents or for a rental of a cabin, but otherwise book well ahead and be prepared for squeezy sites.

We liked this park, a lot of annual vans and cabins, would prefer not to be here for school holidays though. There are some uneven patches in the road so had to watch our step. The managers were friendly and helpful. Our van is 20 feet and that's about as large as they can take. I would recommend booking ahead if you want to stay, they don't have a lot of casual sites. Friendly staff, staff explained park layout and facilities. Very good value for money ($26 2A PN, powered, shoulder season). We paid $23.50 because of Seniors card. Amenities are close to most sites, were clean, condition is good, water pressure is good, there was adequate hot water, soap provided, paper towels/dryer provided, exhaust fans/good ventilation. Inadequate number of tourist sites, some level sites, good night lighting, sites will accommodate small to medium vans, no sites with annex slabs, shade to most sites. Good laundry, no rec room, basic camp kitchen, book swap available, no wireless internet available, you can use your mobile wireless (carrier used was Telstra, reception quality was 4). Quiet, open & roomy park, plenty of shade, a few permanents. Clean UC gas bbq (free), bbq area lighting, seating provided at bbq. Basic playground in good condition. Clean pool is shaded. Suitable for few days, suitable for families.
Liked:- Close to town, shady sites, good Internet and phone connection , price, value for money, washing machines only 2 dollars at time of writing this, cable available from office for TV if needed (some sites ) free of charge, friendly managers.
