The people who run the park and lovely and do their best to make things perfect. Great new ablutions…. However most of the sites are just dirt - no grass or slab and quite depressing.. A few sites near the front gates are lovely and grassy but these were all full when we came. Be aware that there is almost no TV reception in park. The owners try by lending arials at no cost but this didn't help us any. In my opinion, a park this big should have the TV situation sorted to provide what guests want. The jetty is under repair so difficult to fish from there...so having no TV just made for a boring week! Many people caught crabs so were happy:)

NSW, Sydney, Lane Cove River Tourist Park - North Ryde

Date of Stay: January 2017 Rating: 4
We have stayed here at this park several times. It is still a fantastic place to stay in Sydney as so close to the rail line and it is located "in the bush". Poor cleanliness in the ablutions is its biggest weakness, but we can live with these given the benefits of the location.The ablutions are cleaned well each morning but seem to deteriate quickly as old and poorly designed. Price now increased from $30 a night to well over $40 a night with new management. At least this gives lots more spaces as not so much demand from those who come here every year !! We rate this park a 4 due to the amazing size of the sites and the wonderful wildlife - not the ablutions. We really love staying here. To have access to the great city ogf Sydney with all its tourist sites for such a low price is amazing.
