NSW, Urunga, Urunga Waters Tourist Park

Date of Stay: July 2020 Rating: 3.5
Pet friendly unlike the other caravan park in town. Has it’s own boat ramp. River must have got flooded back in February 2020 because the river bank has been damaged. That does not affect the park in any way at all. Urunga board walk only minutes away by car is spectacular.

Amenities are close to only some sites, were clean, condition is good, water pressure is good, there was adequate hot water, soap provided, dry change area, paper towels/dryer provided.

Basic laundry, late checkout allowed, dump point, no wireless internet available., you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Telstra, reception quality was 3. Quiet, claustrophobic park, inadequate shade, many permanent/annual vans. No playground. Clean pool. Suitable for few days.
Liked:- Price was very good. Managers were very helpful and friendly. Even showed me to my site so I could park my van they way I wanted. It was a drive through so I could enter it either way. Set on the river if you have a boat the caravan park has it’s own boat ramp and place to tie your boat up.
Disliked:- The sites by the river are very open and roomy but the new concrete annex slabs are set way back from the road so you have to be good at reversing. The other sites are mostly grass, some Look a bit tight to get into. Amenities a long walk from river front sites better to have your own en-suite in your van. Showers cubicles do not have any shelves in them so take a bag to hang up on the hooks.
Parking:- Plenty of room no problems at all.
Local Information:- Board walk in town is spectacular and you can see whales from the ocean end. There is also a lovely wetland to visit. Only a Spar grocery in town. No big supermarket. I stayed here So I could also do a day visit up to Dorrigo because I didn’t want to tow my van up there.

Liked:- Right next to the water
Disliked:- Most cars had to park In front of vans cos there was no room next to vans if the awning was out. Made the park very claustrophobic. Apparently the park is always busy and it feels like holiday season all the time. Green matting very old and holes everywhere. Pay extra for water front site, I stayed at the back of the park wasn’t going to pay extra. People walk past on foot path right next to van on water front sites.
Parking:- Park is split into 2. When approaching the park, have to stop and park on side pull out on left, only one van and car room. No signs to tell you to this and I had no idea where to park to check in. Was told At check in everyone doesn’t know where to park. Well put a sign up !
Local Information:- Popular surf beach. Safe swimming in estuary. Walk to headland. Beach fishing. Golf.

Pet friendly! One of the amenities blocks were seperate bathrooms with toilets which were lovely! Scooters, bikes and skate boards are not permitted in the park so no kids tearing around

Suitable for month or longer, suitable for families, well maintained park, park is considered kid-safe, park is considered suitable for mobility impaired persons.
Liked:- I travel solo so I appreciate drive through sites. I could not get power at my site so staff were strait over to help. It was just a trip switch I didn’t notice.
Disliked:- The power and tap were a long way from my site. Also my site only had one tap but 2 power plugs, the site next to me was suppose to use a tap on the other side to them but they used mine instead. They should have used the tap on the other side of their van but that would have mean their hose was stretched a long way. I thought that was a very strange set up. Other sites seemed fine. The man was kind enough to have a double adaptor for the tap so we both had water.
Parking:- Seperate lane to park for check in. Park has one way loop road around which I only realised when I was going the wrong way!
Added Touches:- Boat ramp and lovely river right next to the park. Dogs most welcome! Bit of walk into town but a lovely one!
Local Information:- Trial Bay gaol was brilliant! Smokey Cape Lighthouse is gorgeous! Town has lovely beaches and the river has a very safe swimming spot with wheel chair access to a lovely little sheltered beach. Area is just beautiful.
Road Conditions:- Road into town can go under a bit of water in the very wet time of year and has been patched many times but does not cause any problems.

NSW, Wauchope, Wauchope Showgrounds

Date of Stay: July 2018 Rating: 2
Stayed here for the weekend for the annual Yesteryear Truck show. Plenty of room for all sorts of rigs. Power and water available to most of the grounds. No busy traffic noise. Dogs allowed. Hot showers but amenities are very old and in bad condition. When we were there one of the shower doors fell off because the wood was so rotten. So we were down to one shower in the ladies! But then the managers locked us out of that amenities because they thought someone had trashed the ladies! We were not impressed. I emailed the show grounds asking if it can be repaired. The Billabong Zoo is well worth a visit if staying here. Privately owned it’s a lovely zoo with a lovely collection of well cared for animals. Staff are lovely.

Liked:- Price per site is good compaired to other parks in area. Allows pets. Dog hydro bath near amenities. Close to the beach. Lovely peaceful setting with many trees.
Disliked:- Park is on different levels which may be difficult for mobility impaired people because amenities is a walk up a hill or steps. However if this is a problem for you ask for a powered site on same level as amenities. Unpowered sites quite a walk up the hill to amenities however this did not affect my stay. Park has mainly unsealed roads so car and van gets quite dusty. However we had not had much rain for weeks so everything was a dry.
Parking:- No problems with parking with a van on
Local Information:- Close to nice beach all be it a steep walk down to but has a large carpark to park your car. Short drive to supermarket and other shops. Great place to stay for Father's Day Rusty Iron Rally at Macksville only 20 minute drive away.

NSW, Yamba, Calypso Holiday Park

Date of Stay: May 2017 Rating: 3.5
This park is very old park. It sits on reclaimed land, where you park your van used to have boats and the walking track next to park was actually a break wall with a railway track on top of it to tend the boats. The amenities while old are very clean and everything works sits in the middle of the park. Cabins are roomy and clean. Sites are normal size. One end of the park has extra toilets and showers and the other has just some extra toilets. There a few BBQ huts placed around the park. The pool is simple, not shaded. Camp kitchen has only a fridge and microwave and a kettle. Laundry has a good number of washing machines. Because of the town being so close by the party goers at the local pub were a little noisy on the Saturday night but didn't cause too much of a problem.
$38 for 2A. Paid $33, reduced for Pension discount. Sites will accommodate medium to large vans. carrier used was Optus, reception quality was 4.
Liked:- Location and staff friendliness.
Disliked:- No security, no boom gates and there is a walkway along side of park that anyone can use.
Parking:- Plenty of parking for check in
Local Information:- Walking track next to park easy access to beach and break wall. Ferry leaves from wharf to Iluka. Walk to town centre from the entrance, camping shops and take aways only minutes walk from park.

Disliked:- Water front sites are a fair walk from amenities block. An extra one should be built for those sites to use. Mini golf very basic. Laminate on bench in womens amenities is peeling.
Parking:- There is no room to park while checking in so you block the entrance. You could park back on side of the road the road goes no where apart from into the park so no traffic.
