Park has few drive-through sites and/or ensuite sites. Ordinary sites were located on an area which is undergoing grass restoration and, as a result of recent watering/rain? the ground was quite damp and muddy. Uneven and sloping was a problem. Amenities situated within the camp kitchen were quite OK with microwave, bbq etc. but you had to walk through the camp kitchen and press a key code. Another ablution block and laundry were located in another part of the park. There was insufficient lighting in the day time to do this although the lights were switched on for the evening access to the toilets etc. The jetty is not of a safe nature and great care must be taken when walking along it. The uneven timbers and general level should not be promoted as child-safe. A disappointing park when expecting as advertised.

Lovely quite park. Karuah has been by passed so no highway noise. The park is in 2 sections, one with permanent vans - these were well looked after and very presentable. The other section for tourists. No sites were level, some worse than others. 2 pools, jumping pillow etc. Camp kitchen is in a building with the amenities, kitchen was ok, BBQ and tables & chairs. Only 2 showers and 3 toilets in Ladies, these would not cope when park was busy. Water from 1 shower flows into the other. Staff friendly and helpful. Well maintained park. $28.80 after chain discount per night 2 adults powered.
