Very busy park in the peak season. Paid $30 pn 2a which was reasonable. Staff explained layout. Good amount of shade around the park. Sites were mainly level and of good size. Some sites have slabs or matting. Water available close to site. Amenities close to most sites were of good condition with nice hot water. Suitable for overnight or a few days. Good pool to cool down in after a hot day.

We had 2 nights here and enjoyed Croydon very much. Very friendly staff, still only $30p.n. for 2 people. Great clean modern amenities and a refreshing pool. A dump point has been installed next to the park and was due to be commissioned by authorities the day we left. If they could suppress the dust and perhaps fence or put a hedge around perimeter of the park it would be fantastic, it is still a good park for a few days stay.
