This park rates a 4 because it is very well maintained, provides lots of various entertainment for guests, and does have a tropical" type of atmosphere. We were guided onto our site by a very helpful fellow, all staff we encountered were very cheerful and helpful. The park has a nice relaxing atmosphere, but this would change during school holidays, as mentioned in previous reports, it caters for young families. The problem for me with this park is the location, yes it is about 5 or 600 metres from a beach, ok to fish along, walk or ride your bike, but not very appealing to swim in. I saw no one swimming in our 3 day stay even though the weather was mid to high 20's. There is nothing near this park. Yeppoon is about a 15 minute drive. Emu Park is 10 or so, lovely place. Yeppoon foreshore is undergoing major refurbishment work at the moment. This should be worth seeing when completed, the Marina at Rosslyn Bay is very nice. Would I visit again? Emu Park definitely. Yeppoon, probably not. Just my opinion though.

Tariff was $41.00 powered for 2 adults, less Big4 discount. Amenities blocks were adequate and clean. As previously stated the dump point is a a long hike to the back of the park and requires car transport.

This park in school holidays is a living example of the "happy families" you see in the brochures. Most sites have families on them, but despite this, we received a welcome as we checked in that made it clear that Grey Nomads are welcome too. The park is tight, but sites are easy to access. Amenities blocks are adequate for the nearly full park, and are kept clean. There are lots of activities for families, including pool, aqua slide, three wheelers to hire, including movies on the big screen. Despite all this, we enjoyed our stay, as the atmosphere is pleasant and all the kids are well behaved. (We took great care when backing in to allow the kids on bikes who we held up to go past). The park is not near shops, but residents can order fish and chips through the office. Detailed local attraction information is handed out, and bookings for island trips can be made. My only complaint is that the dump point is a a long hike to the back of the park.

Acc. Cost 14 nights - $486 (Powered Site) Owners - All staff that we met were extremely friendly and helpful. We found booking ahead and staying for 2 weeks enabled us to end up paying a reasonable price. However we were informed that in the school holiday period, the price would go up to $51 per night. I personally would not pay this amount. Park - A large park with a number of cabins and around 100 powered sites. Most sites had large slabs, were very spacious, level and well shaded. Some sites had only grass but all were well maintained and also seemed quite level. There were a lot of unpowered sites available that were very large and nice and green. The amenities block was very clean with plenty of facilities although the hot water system seemed to struggle to cope with the large numbers on our visit. There were also lots of free BBQ areas and the normal laundry facilities. Very attractively set out Park with good spacing between sites. As with most Big 4 Parks, there were lots of “kids” type attractions. One unusual attraction was the outdoor theatre with large screen that was really well set up. Fish & Chips at the Park for $10 a head was available as an added feature. Most of these things of course are of little interest to “Grey Nomads” but we pay for them. Features – The Capricorn Coast & Beaches, Rosslyn Bay, Great Keppel Island, Emu Park, Byfield National Park
