This is a great caravan park, whether you are stopping for one night or one week. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Our booking arrangements for a group of 40 (caravans and cabins) was handled efficiently. Their kindness was above and beyond their responsibility when one of our members became unwell. The lake views are amazing with lots of water birds enjoying the environment.
