NSW, South West Rocks, Ingenia Holidays South West Rocks

Date of Stay: July 2021 Rating: 4
The attraction at this park is the irregularly shaped swimming pool with a helical slide for kids. The heated pool remains warm enough to swim in the winter. Our cost per night was confused by our stay being partly in school holidays and partly not. At an average of $41 per night it is no bargain for winter. Sites are easy to access. The recreation room was closed due to Covid restrictions. Kitchen facilities may struggle at peak times. With the exception of three or four "stragglers" permanents are allocated an entirely separate area.
Very friendly staff, staff explained park layout and facilities. Reasonable value for money, powered. Paid $41.00, reduced for Mixed tariff. Amenities are close to most sites, were clean, condition is very good, soap provided, paper towels/dryer provided, exhaust fans/good ventilation. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, good night lighting, sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers, annex slabs to some sites, shade to some sites, ensuite sites available, drive-through sites, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. Good camp kitchen, dump point, secure entry, you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Vodaphone, reception quality was 1. Quiet, open & roomy park, a few permanent/annual vans. Clean UC BBQs, congenial bbq area atmosphere, bbq area lighting, seating provided at bbq. Good playground, in good condition. Clean pool, heated, pool is shaded, tables and chairs provided. Suitable for a week or more, suitable for families, well maintained park.
Liked:- Its openness.
Local Information:- 10 minutes to walk to town. A few good places to eat.

NSW, Evans Head, Reflections Holiday Park

Date of Stay: June 2021 Rating: 4
This massive park, which is 750 metres long' has about 500 sites and is easily the biggest park I've ever seen. It is well run, neat and tidy. Some of the standard questions are difficult to answer for this park because it has 6 amenities blocks, multiple dump points and bin locations and things that are close to one end of the park are not close to the other. Its multiple kitchens vary in style, size and condition. Evans Head is known for wind, particularly in the afternoon and although the park is treed and sheltered, awnings need to be monitored. Post Covid there are good hand cleanser containers outside toilet blocks. There are dedicated areas for dogs and no dogs. Access to sites is easy even when busy. With a park of this size probably nothing is adequate at Christmas but everything is fine off season. $48 per night is not a bargain basement price for June. Water pressure at our site was just adequate.
Very friendly staff, staff explained park layout and facilities. Reasonable value for money $48 for 2A PN, powered, off-peak season. Amenities are close to all sites, were clean, condition is very good, soap provided, paper towels/dryer provided, exhaust fans/good ventilation. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, good night lighting, sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers, annex slabs to some sites, shade to some sites, ensuite sites available, drive-through sites, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. Good laundry, good camp kitchen, kiosk, dump point, secure entry, book swap available, wireless internet is available is free carrier used was Vodaphone, reception quality was 1. Quiet, open & roomy park, inadequate shade, no permanent/annual vans. Clean UC electric BBQs, congenial bbq area atmosphere, bbq area lighting, seating provided at bbq. No playground. No pool. 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:- Very friendly at reception and it's well run.
Parking:- It's limited to 2-3 simultaneous arrivals. Beyond that just block the road - you have no option.
Local Information:- Bakery in town makes a good pie. Evans Head coffee shops are a bit average - at least the ones we tried.

NSW, Brunswick Heads, Massey Greene Holiday Park

Date of Stay: June 2021 Rating: 3
Having been here 11 months ago (see below) my opinion has changed somewhat. The two smaller ablution blocks are not to the standard of the main block and they really need attention. The park appears to have not had much attention since we were last here. The spacious sites are, in some cases, dusty or sandy and not well grassed. The park is conveniently located but not particularly good value for money. This does not mean it is awful - it is not. It could be a great a great park but would need a face lift to attain that state.

NSW, Urunga, Reflection Holiday Park Urunga

Date of Stay: June 2021 Rating: 5
This place is a real find and I rated it a "5" because it could not be much better. I've stayed in well over 100 parks and this is amongst the best. The ablutions are constantly clean and dry, they appear to be newish and are in excellent condition. There are two dump points and two toilet blocks which are ample for a park this size. Fitting neatly between the child-suitable beach and the shops, this manicured park is ideally and conveniently located. One of the 2 supermarkets is across the road. There is a long boardwalk to the surf beach starting from the reserve at the corner of the park. Entry is cramped to some sites but it is worth the effort. At under $40 per night it is good value. Please help yourself and me......don't tell anyone about this place

NSW, Coffs Harbour, Emerald Beach Holiday Park - Emerald Beach

Date of Stay: March 2021 Rating: 3.5
Some sites are very tight and vehicles need to move to accommodate arrivals. Very little to zero site management appears to be done. For $40+ per night, I expect a little more. Shelter from high wind is excellent. Walk to 2 coffee shops. Eight km to nearest supermarket.
Friendly staff, staff explained park layout and facilities. Reasonable value for money. Amenities are close to most sites, were clean, condition is good, there was adequate hot water, soap provided, paper towels/dryer provided. Mostly level sites, poor night lighting, sites will accommodate medium to large vans, annex slabs to most sites, shade to most sites, ensuite sites available, drive-through sites, hard to negotiate into site, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. Good laundry, basic rec room, good camp kitchen, dump point, secure entry, wireless internet is available is free, you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Vodaphone, reception quality was 3. Quiet, adequate shade. Clean UC electric BBQs are free, bbq area lighting, seating provided at bbq. Excellent playground, in good condition. Clean pool, tables and chairs provided. Suitable for a week or more, suitable for families, park is considered kid-safe.
Disliked:- It's starting to look tired, old and run down, but it doesn't need to. The mud gets very sticky when it rains.
Parking:- It is inadequate with provision for one rig only. Due to its narrowness, on street parking is unlikely.
Added Touches:- There is a splash pool water park thingy for the kids.

NSW, Durras, Murramarang Beachfront NRMA Holiday Park

Date of Stay: November 2020 Rating: 4
If you are already paying nearly $40 dollars per night, charging a dollar for a shower is not reasonable. This park needs to employ a full time Poo Patrol to follow the numerous kangaroos and ducks. The van sites are well maintained and well grassed as well as generous in size. There are no services at all in South Durras and you need to travel 12km to Batemans Bay for everything. Doubts have been cast on the water quality. Although it has the faintest soapy taste, the water is quite drinkable. There are no concrete slabs on the sites but they have matting. Staff told us that, although it was not school holidays, there were more than 180 children in the park at the time of our stay so the park was noisy but not from external sources. The roughly kidney shaped swimming pool is huge and child infested.
Average staff friendliness. Reasonable value for money $42.00 for 2A PN, powered. Paid $37.80, reduced for NRMA membership. Amenities are close to most sites, cleanliness was average, condition is very good, there was adequate hot water, extra charge for shower, soap provided, paper towels/dryer provided, exhaust fans/good ventilation, disabled facilities. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, poor night lighting, sites will accommodate medium to large vans, annex slabs to most sites, very few sites are shaded, ensuite sites available, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. Basic laundry, basic camp kitchen, disabled facilities, dump point, secure entry, wireless internet is available is free, you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Telstra, reception quality was 3. Noisy, open & roomy park, inadequate shade, no permanent/annual vans. Clean UC BBQs are free, bbq area lighting. Excellent playground, in good condition. Clean pool, tables and chairs provided. Suitable for a week or more, suitable for families.
Liked:- The park has its own restaurant/coffee shop serving basic meals and snacks.
Disliked:- Despite repeated requests, the coffee shop coffee is cold.
Parking:- During COVID times you book on line and pre pay and they email your gate code so you drive straight in.

NSW, Budgewoi, Budgewoi Tourist Park

Date of Stay: October 2020 Rating: 4.5
This large open park is council owned and contractor managed and (as I wrote 2+ years ago) it is the best park on the Central Coast and certainly the best value. We did a "stay 7 pay for 6" which reduced our price to less than $30 per night.Furniture was removed from the kitchen due to Covid restrictions. There is a very impressive near new pool obviously designed with kids in mind as well as the ubiquitous jumping pillow.

NSW, Gloucester, Gloucester Holiday Park

Date of Stay: September 2020 Rating: 4
Very spacious, almost spread out, this park has double concrete slabs to many sites. It's 400 to 500 metres from town. We paid about $32 per night 2A powered, representing good value. The dump point is unusual because it is outside the park, across the driveway from the swimming pool. The swimming pool is adjoining the van park. There are a number of permanents, mostly in a segregated area.
Friendly staff. Very good value for money $32 for 2A PN. Amenities are close to most sites, were clean, condition is good, water pressure is good, soap provided, dry change area, paper towels/dryer provided, exhaust fans/good ventilation.

NSW, Glen Innes, Fossicker Caravan Park

Date of Stay: September 2020 Rating: 4
Probably with a capacity of 25 vans this park has no exotic features but does the job well and it is a good stop over. Much of the grounds is gravel and the rest is grass. It is not a dust bowl. It,s a bit far to walk into the main street unless you're feeling energetic but the local RSL is 200 metres via the back gate. The dry area in the shower cubicles is huge.

NSW, Tenterfield, Tenterfield Lodge Caravan Park

Date of Stay: September 2020 Rating: 4
Manager's name is Barry
Barry will greet you with enthusiasm, friendliness and a bag of discount brochures that are actually useful (for once). Much of the park is covered in blue metal which suppresses the dust very well. The rest of the park is grass. Although there are no frills the park has all the necessities and works well. The comprehensive railway museum is only about 200 metres away.
