This is a big well laid out park. Annuals are generally at one end of the park. There is a variety of sites to choose from - some with slabs, some grassed, some in the sun, some in the shade. We stayed here over school holidays and the long weekend and whilst the park was busy it never felt super crowded.

Nice greeting at reception, large park with many double slab sites amongst some shady trees. 2 dump points and 3 amenity blocks, and they are spotless. The whole park is very well maintained with a few Roos munching on the grassed areas as well. $37p.n., and would recommend.

A lot of work has been done on this park since our last stay. Great camp kitchen.

This is probably the best park in North Haven, located right next to the beach and a short walk from the river. The facilities have been progressively upgraded and now include an excellent camp kitchen and several separate bbq areas. The sites are a good size and mostly easy to access. Many now have double concrete slabs installed over the last couple of years. There is abundant bird and animal life with up to 10 roos frequenting the park. TV reception can be a problem although we had no trouble with a jack antenna. Mobile phone coverage by Telstra is poor and the free wi-fi is a waste of time. These things notwithstanding, this is a really good park in a really nice part or the coast.

This was a nice park, some sites are nicer than others we were given a site under the trees close to the road which was more dirt than the concrete slabs, but the slabs could do with some TLC some sites are a fair distance to the amenities like the one I was one but had a BBQ near by Was a peaceful park with wildlife but the best find was the off leash beach at the end of the road about 200 metres away so much off leash beach was great, the dogs had so much fun there and all hours too not times. There is also a lovely walk along the break wall which goes for a long way too. The check in was friendly and helpful, the price was $34 for 1 adult which I find a bit expensive but the locations seems to be the price. you need a code for the bathroom and to get in and out of the park. Great location, the only let down was some sites seems inferior to others but those had trees to provide shade

We stayed here approx 12 months ago. So this is just an update. Cost was $33 pn power o/peak, however, we got a free night using the North Coast tripper card, and also a 10% discount for staying 7 nights. Since our last visit more slabs have been constructed. These are double size, so both the van and annex/awning are on the slab. During our stay there was rain, so this was very welcome. We understand the main amenities block, which is getting old, is soon to be closed, gutted and refitted. The second block is also old, but is in better condition. The amenities were kept immaculate, as previous. The park is dog friendly off peak. We do not have a dog, but the addition of a dog bath is probably most welcome for visitors who bring their best friend with them. A Putt Putt golf course has also been added, which should keep the kids occupied. This park is suitable for long stays, and is perfect for Grey Nomads and families.

Obviously this park has had considerable work done on it. Generally spacious with a few new double concrete pads around. If you want a large 15M sq site then choose q3 or q6. We visited in winter, there is a swamp to the back of the park which is quite photogenic but in warmer weather would be a haven for mozzies.

Liked:- Large easy to negotiate sites. Free WiFi if its working.
Disliked:- The park is quite large and for purposes of WiFi broken up into several sections. Unfortunately the section we were in did not work and the manager apologized but said nothing could be done and that several others had bought this to their attention. I wonder why they simply don't get a WiFi guru to fix it.
Parking:- At entry room for 1 rig.
Added Touches:- Courtesy coach to the North Haven club Thursdays to Sundays.
Road Conditions:- Good sealed roads.
