Upon arrival at this park it was a cat and mouse game trying to find the checking in office, only for a fellow travaller who directed me in the right direction NO SIGN POSTING this park has a 260 relocatable homes attached they have no pool or camp kitchen so they invade the caravan parks facilities sounds reasonable until you see the state they leave the camp kitchen in. The BBQs were not cleaned for the 10 days we were there which makes me wonder what else is not getting cleaned.
Unfriendly staff, bad staff response to complaints. Very good value for money $32.00 for 2A PN, powered, off-peak season. Paid $18.00, reduced for travel auctions voucher. Amenities are close to most sites, cleanliness was average, condition is reasonable, water pressure is good, there was adequate hot water, soap provided, dry change area, paper towels/dryer provided, disabled facilities. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, good night lighting, sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers, annex slabs to most sites, very few sites are shaded, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. Basic laundry, basic rec room, basic camp kitchen, late checkout allowed, kiosk, dump point, you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Telstra, reception quality was 2. Quiet, open & roomy park, inadequate shade, many permanent/annual vans. Dirty UC gas BBQs are free, dismal bbq area atmosphere, bbq area lighting, seating provided at bbq. Basic playground, in average condition. Clean pool, toddlers catered for. Suitable for a week or more.
Liked:- the relaxed atmosphere wildlife was abundant close to beach and lagoon.
Disliked:- the office and ground staff, seems they really don't like their jobs, office hours leave a hell of lot to be desired close at 5.00pm weekdays, 3.00pm saturday and 12.00pm sunday. Not good enough especially if you arrive after those times which so often happens to travellers, try ringing the phone numbers 1800 number clicks off straight away and the normal number nobody answers. I worry to think if something was to go wrong here in an emergency. Tried to get mote information was given a pamphlet, asked when the garbage bins are emptied was told they ran out of time today. Had to endure a party in the camp kitchen which had a live band with amplified music which didn't stop until after midnight, was nor forewarned of this. Dogs apparantly are permitted in the pool enclosure when asked about this was told she would take care of with the result of the dog still being in the area only tied up barking annoying all in the pool, I could go on but this park has been here for years and it is quite obvious they are letting it go, shame really.
Parking:- no
Added Touches:- no
Local Information:- no local information was forthcoming is why I went back to the office and was given a pamphlet

A big tricky to find this park, but just keep going and follow the signs past the Retirement Village. Very good value at $26 p.n., large, open and level sites, made roads, dump point & clean amenities. Laundry not handy to our site, & good Market here today.
