Council ownership probably explains the perfect location of this park. it's long and thin with beach on one side and the shopping street on the other. At $41 per night its not bargain basement but why should it be when it is constantly full in this season?
Friendly staff. Good value for money $41 for 2A PN, powered. Amenities are close to all sites, were clean, condition is very good, soap provided, dry change area, paper towels/dryer provided, exhaust fans/good ventilation. Inadequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, poor night lighting, sites will accommodate medium to large vans, annex slabs to some sites, shade to some sites, drive-through sites, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. Basic camp kitchen, dump point, van parking. Quiet, open & roomy park, no permanent/annual vans. No playground. No pool. Suitable for a week or more, well maintained park, park is considered kid-safe.
Liked:- Great location.
Parking:- Drive in, curve right and obey the sign.
Local Information:- Any day trip to Frazer Island is good. "Frazer Experience" is more personal with a smaller tour group.

Spent 4 nights at this park with an ocean view site - looking out over Wide Bay was great. The park is very popular so book early. Amenities are adequate but may fall short in peak times. Bird droppings onto cars and van were a problem so people have awning protectors set up and we can see why. Easy walk to shops and eateries (Beach Hotel is a good spot). Whale watching is prime time, fishing charter we went on resulted in no take home fish. We will be back in non prime time.

Manager's name is Marilyn and Phill .
The caravan park (Council owned) is a great location, close to all your shopping needs. The manager, Marilyn was a delight, and could not do enough to help us when we arrived for our stay. There is help to access your site by Phil in his yellow golf cart if required. The park is well maintained and the amenities are clean, good water pressure and hot showers well into the late evening. Some road noise at night, but it does quiet down overnight. The park is parallel to the main road. This location is a good spot to stay and to visit Fraser Island and do the whale watching thing. Many tours can be booked through the office at the park. Seasonal visits by bats that will leave their mark on you or your car and van, but that is part of the territory. As value for money, we paid $180 for 5 nights ($36.00) a night, if you stay 7 night’s, you get the 7th free. The fee seems to be the norm these days. If you can get beachfront site , that’s extra. The TV has all the channels and internet (Telstra) with our wireless system, it has a 3 bar coverage. Security seems OK, but we always put things away and lock up, there is no boom gate at the entrance.
Very friendly staff. Reasonable value for money. Was clean.
Disliked:- Can be noisy in the evening from cars on the road near the park.
