Few changes since last visit. Mid week spring special now $40/night 2A powered. Some morning noise from lawn mowers & leaf blowers but park kept neatly. A big flathead caught from the nearby breakwall (too big to keep) & a few pan size brim. Fuel cheaper in town than in Port Macquarie..Nearby cafe/coffee shop now closed.

Liked:- Great value. One of the last reasonable value parks in the area. Neat & tidy old fashioned park. 9 toilets & 9 showers in a recently renovated amenities block. Half the amenities could be used while the other half were being cleaned.
Disliked:- Slabs on some sites a bit small although sites were OK.. Probably built when vans were smaller. No specific disabled facilities but there were no steps into amenities, cubicles spacious and there were hand-rails in both toilets & showers. Dump point functional but not modern.
Parking:- Space for checking in for one van on the wrong side of the road opposite reception. A second van needs to stay on the street,
Local Information:- Pleasant waterfront & wheelchair friendly walkways within walking distance of the park. Great lookout over the area from North Brother mountain.

This park must have been laid out long ago when vans were shorter. Our van having a 6 metre body length fitted on the site with 30cm to spare...but it fitted. The amenities are immaculately clean and more than adequate for peak times because many van sites have been replaced with cabins so there are less of us itinerants. The swimming pool is well maintained with a shade cloth sail or two and the usual furniture. The dump point looks home made, difficult to use and the risk of an unhygienic episode is high. A 500 metre walk will take you to the surf club for a competitively priced, really good, breakfast. Sites are nice and flat; all are grass and plenty wide enough. I think it was about $37 per night for 2A. There are no ensuite sites. Parking at check in is ridiculous so stay on the street or just do the best you can. Good bakery in town but a bit far to walk. The place is well maintained. You'd return to this place.
