Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, poor night lighting, sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers, annex slabs to some sites, shade to some sites, drive-through sites, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. Good laundry, good camp kitchen, you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Telstra, reception quality was 1. Quiet, open & roomy park, adequate shade, no permanent/annual vans. Clean UC gas BBQs are free, congenial bbq area atmosphere, bbq area lighting, seating provided at bbq. Excellent playground, in good condition. No pool. Suitable for a week or more, suitable for families, well maintained park, park is considered kid-safe.
Liked:- Dog friendly. Helpful owners/managers. TV reception was poor but the park "retransmits" 16 channels. Point your aerial at reception.

Most sites have a fair covering of grass and some have slabs for annex. Larger caravans and 5th wheelers can be accommodated. Points for power and water are handy but no sullage point. Ablution block is older style but clean however there is no onsite dump point. Telstra coverage was excellent at 5 bars. Tariff was $30 per night for 2 adults on a powered site less 10% for TOP members. Major negative during our stay was a guest riding around the park on his extremely noisy motor bike on a number of occasions while clutching his baby son in his left arm. Of course, neither was wearing a helmet and management seemed to take no action.

As previous reports, this is a clean and tidy park with good amenities, laundry, camp kitchen, fish cleaning shelter and still $30 per night for a powered site for 2 adults. We had a drive through for our 5th wheeler and stayed hitched up. Very friendly and helpful staff. The supermarket in town is well stocked. Good for overnight or a longer stay. One person we spoke to has been coming here for 4 weeks a year for many years.

With TT discount $27 P/N 2A, good value. Again another neat and tidy TT park, lovely green grassy sites or packed gravel with very good concrete annex slabs. Sties were easy to negotiate into, mostly reverse into though. Amenities had been given a recent coat of paint and were clean, pressure good, adequate hot water and good sized cubicles. Noting the comment of a previous contributor, there coooo-uld be an issue with the pidgeons as they are still roosting above the Womens, but fresh paint was only smell obvious during our stay. TV reception was restricted to 6 digital stations-sufficient, good Optus and Telstra. Dump point, small camp kitchen, no pool. Good position within a stroll to town offerings of general store, cafe, post office, and a 500m walk through tracks to the beach. Was very windy, cold and grey during our stay but beach looked nice. Extras: Nice views from cliff top drive; only fuel stop is on the highway on the way into town
