Positive Reviews

Good Parking

Seasoned campers who have been to a lot of caravan and camping parks commented that there was really good space between the campsites and that there was ample space to park their cars next to their caravans and tents.

Good Location

Guests commented that the holiday park was centrally located with many guests really commenting that it was very handy to be able to walk to the local shops and eat at nearby restaurants and pubs.

Bay Breezes

Guests commented that it was lovely to be so close to Shoal Bay and they enjoyed the bay breezes that would sweep across their campsite cooling them down. Guests also loved that the water was an easy five minute walk from the park.

Negative Reviews

No Pool or Playground

Parents travelling with their kids were disappointed that the park did not have a pool or a playground to keep the kids amused. Guests said the park was not really family or kid friendly.

A Bit Expensive

A lot of people who left negative reviews about the park focused on the price of the campsites and cabins, with many not happy about the fact that there was no seniors discount and that the price was adjusted upwards during peak times. Guests also said that the park needed to be better maintained, for the prices that were charged.

Loads of Rabbits

Guests warned future visitors that they had better like rabbits before visiting the park. Guests complained that there was an abundance of rabbit droppings and guests travelling with their pets said that the rabbits often set their animals off.
