Quite noisy with kids on scooters on the roads most of the time. Luckily there wasn't many vans opp our site when we arrived, it can be quite difficult to get into some sites with lamp-posts and fire hydrants around each block.

Prices are expensive but you are paying for what the Gold Coast has to offer, and all of the Council Parks are the same price. Some sites are difficult to access. The Park offers some assistance but I am yet to be convinced the help is suitably qualified. There is rarely enough sites in these parks in peak periods so book early. There are a few permanents / long term but they are located in different areas. There is a little noise from the road but not a major problem. When I phoned I hang on for ever and eventually leave a number to call then this always seems to take at least 24 hours to happen. Even when in the office/kiosk they take their time in serving you. Not good on the service. Weekday site cost is $46.00 and Friday/Saturday is $54.00 and all previous discounts seem to have been stopped.
