Always a pleasure to stay here. Friendly staff. Clean amenities. Great beach (no fish however). Staff frustrated that they can"t get the funds they would like from the owners in order to continue upgrading the park. Early December a great time, plenty of sites before the Christmas rush.

Another very pleasant visit to this park. The staff helped with some faxes I had to receive - thanks to Lee. Park facilities were again in very good condition. Some older slabs are being replaced with double slabs so both the van and annex areas are on the same level.

Early Dec. is a great time to be here. Just before the school holidays the park is almost empty. Your choice of sites, shady or sheltered from the wind. Amenities are clean, and ground staff are cleaning up the park ready for the holiday rush, and trying to get some green back into the grass. This park is well located. Walk or ride your bike for all your needs.

Liked:- Its dog friendly; backs onto an off leash beach. Sensibly sized sites. Clean amenities.

Parking:- Two lane parking for arriving guests though this can confuse nonthinkers who usually park across both lanes.
Road Conditions:- Lakes Way should be avoided, travel via the Highway and then via Failford road
