We received a friendly, helpful welcome. Under new ownership, there are some great plans to update the park but they need to solve some existing problems. The grass sites are excellent with shady trees, but a majority of sites have shade-cloth pads on powdery dust. This caused terrible problems, healthwise, when severe winds blew through the park. The soil is so compacted that it was impossible to drive in pegs. Internal roads and the sites near the camp kitchen need to be surfaced to settle the dust which turns to mud in rain. We paid $35.00 per night (reduced to $31.50 for Big 4 membership). Putting the price up to $45.00 per night for a basketball weekend was just a cash grab. The toilet blocks didn't cope at this busy time (4 toilets, 4 showers insufficient). All the amenities were very clean. The park is 15km from Bendigo and the local pub has excellent meals.

We stayed at an en-suite site. Cost $36 per night. Site was a good length for our 7.5m motorhome; good sized slab, level, gravelled parking area for caravan/motorhome, also gravelled parking area for vehicle. Ensuite adequate, clean. Excellent park facilities. Camp kitchen and undercover BBQ area very well set up and very clean. Dump point. Park is thoroughly maintained. Very helpful and friendly owners and staff. General store nearby - also serves take away fish and chips (good). Had very good counter meals at Marong Hotel. Is convenient to access Bendigo while still being in a place with a pleasant rural setting. This park is now our preferred park for our regular visits to Bendigo.

A great park with very welcoming owners who are proud of their park. Both Deb and Brett are very approachable for tourist info or for assistance at the site. The camp kitchen, and amenities blocks are spotless. The lawns are lush and well maintained, with shady trees providing respite on hot afternoons. A pleasure to stay in such a relaxing park.
