It's not called the "Foreshore Caravan Park" for nothing. It has 1.2 kilometres of foreshore and with 700 or so sites, I believe it is the largest caravan park in Australia. Why is Mallacoota (pop.1060) so popular? Peak season this park holds more people than the town and there are other parks in Mallacoota. For $39 2A P/N you get a sloping grass site because the sites vary from slightly sloping to, "You've got to be kidding".You get no pool, access to a few kitchen/barbeque thingys, grossly inadequate amenities blocks and no frills. The amenities blocks suffer from a moth plague each night at this time of the year and there is no rush to clean them up each morning. If the toilet blocks were any further away you would need to take traveler's cheques. Depending on where you are the walk to town isn't too far. Reception is (to be polite) weird. Arriving rigs need to be on the left and park or double park accordingly but the is nowhere to park and reception is on the other side of the road. This is a council owned caravan park. Do you recognise the style? Night lighting was inadequate to the point of being dangerous unless you carried a torch or similar.
Average staff friendliness. Poor value for money $39.00 for 2A PN, powered, shoulder season. Amenities are close to only some sites, were dirty, condition is reasonable, water pressure is good, soap provided, paper towels/dryer provided. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly unlevel sites, poor night lighting, sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers, no sites with annex slabs, very few sites are shaded, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. No rec room, basic camp kitchen, dump point, you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Vodaphone, reception quality was 2. Quiet, open & roomy park, inadequate shade, no permanent/annual vans. Basic playground, in average condition. No pool. Suitable for few days.
Liked:- The frontage of our site was quite wide.
Disliked:- It wasn't much better than free camping on sloping grass.
Parking:- Good luck! See above.

This is a huge park (approx 600 sites) spread over 6 areas or blocks. A mix of powered and unpowered sites, some right on the lake and many with views of the lake. A lot of the sites aren't level so bring your ramps and chocks. Our site wasn't as good a site as last time we were here but still had a nice outlook. Nice grassy sites. Pretty crowded for February but still quiet at night. Friendly staff at reception. Amenities old but clean. Good value at $38/night (power and water). Beaches and rivers nearby. Good to see the surrounding area regenerating after the bushfires a couple of years ago.
