North Coast Holiday Parks chain member, and we are enjoying their Parks all up the coast. Large park in a beautiful location with modern amenities, dump point, Good DTV & Telstra. Great meals at Moonee Tavern 1km down the road, as is Coles etc. Watch the speed humps at the entry, but otherwise a lovely stopover. $ 37p.n., free egg, bacon & sausage brekky on Fridays.

Came here two years ago same time of year and the park had a few negatives such as tired amenities and lethal slabs on powered sites. Not any more. There's a brand new amenities block and most slabs are now double size for both van and annex. The area leading up to the slabs is now landscaped so there's no dangerous corners. The new camp kitchen which is elevated and looks out over the trees and and creek entrance has everything (4 hotplates, 2 stoves, 2 sinks, big fridge, digi TV and lots of seating). Its the perfect place now and I shouldn't be writing this report for obvious reasons. Go easy on road leading up to the park entrance as there are some vicious speed bumps.

Manager's name is Jill (relieving).
Just before entering the park there are three sets of speed bumps (one double set) that ought to be taken very slowly as they are quite sharp. Sand flies are not a problem in winter however they can be about in summer. No playground but there is a council playground just across the road. There is a new tennis court in the park. Kayaks for hire at $20 per hour. Dog washing facility near amenities block.
Very friendly staff, no complaints. Good value for money $35 for 2A, powered, shoulder season. Amenities are close to most sites, were clean, condition is reasonable, water pressure is good, there was adequate hot water, soap provided, paper towels/dryer provided. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, good night lighting, sites will accommodate medium to large vans, annex slabs to most sites, shade to most sites, ensuite sites available, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. No rec room, good camp kitchen, late checkout allowed, dump point, wireless internet is available is free, you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Telstra, reception quality was 4. Quiet, open & roomy park, adequate shade, a few permanents. No playground. No pool. Suitable for a week or more, suitable for families.
Liked:- Great location at apex of two reasonable sized creeks where they run out to the ocean. Getting to the surf beach will require some planning especially at high tide. We had so much fun crossing the narrow channel (5 metres wide and thigh deep) at low tide with the dog in tow. There's a new toilet block (no showers) at the western end of the park , down near the tennis court.
Disliked:- Whilst the sites are wide enough to accommodate van, annexe and car side by side they are not all that deep which can be problematic getting in and out of if the site across from you is occupied. Site water taps are the narrow gauge Victorian type.
Parking:- Plenty of room outside the office.
Added Touches:- Fires allowed in unpowered section in designated BBQ's.
Local Information:- Grab a tourist map of the locality (Cartoscope is ok) and take the Nana Glen road inland and head south and west on some interesting dirt/gravel roads through the forests as far as Dorrigo and return via Bellingen. The trip is all day. Take a picnic lunch at maybe Platypus Flat or head up to Dorrigo to a cafe.
Road Conditions:- Heading into Moonee Beach from any direction is always changing of late due to substantial roadworks. From the south the turnoff is just after Saphire Beach about 10 km north of Coffs.
