We experienced several problems, but others might find it OK. Will leave a detailed review to help you decide.
The camp is laid out in two sections:
1. A cabin / fixed caravan section at the top of the park. This has some decent looking cabins, a great jumping pillow and pool, a camp kitchen and a large (but old) amenity block about 50m away from the kitchen. Unfortunately the camp kitchen doesn’t have sinks, which is actually a big deal when you think how often you need one (washing hands, food, dishes, getting drinking water, etc.). But other than that, the top section is mostly fine when it’s dry.
2. A camping / movable caravan section at the bottom of the park. This is nice to look at, but you need to be very well prepared. When it rains, it tends to flood – and if you look on Google Maps you’ll see the area used to be a swamp. Insects are a serious problem – not only mosquitos, but also my wife got attacked by very large and painful ants. There’s a small amenity block in this section which has four family shower rooms – woefully inadequate for the number of camping sites. And filthy + full of biting insects when it had been raining.
Unfortunately it’s a five minute walk to the camp kitchen from the tents – and the lack of a sink up there means you have to pour your own water before you leave, and wash up after you return. We had a family of four, and basically ended up taking the car each time because we had too much to ferry that far.
The other complaints were:
– the other clientele in the camping area were very loud. Five competing stereos at top volume, right up to the 11pm shut off time. Teenagers pulled our tent pegs out. Owners couldn’t do anything about that, but if you encourage the party atmosphere you’re going to get the inconsideration that comes with it.
– You have to hire BBQ keys for $5 (refundable). An unnecessary inconvenience on top of everything else.
– Insufficient washing machines / dryers. Had to keep going back to see if one was free, two dryers for a park like this isn’t enough when it’s been raining.
So my advice would be that this camp site would be OK if you’re in one of the new cabins, and you’re using the camp kitchen just to BBQ food to bring back to your cabin. Bring enough clothes for the whole holiday maybe.
Families in the lower area need to be completely self sufficient. Water, refrigeration, cooking, shelter, tarps, the lot. And bring insect repellant / citronella candles.
My advice to the owners would be to install double sinks in the camp kitchen immediately. Also clean the amenities blocks three times a day if it’s raining. Post signs asking people to be considerate before 11pm, not just afterwards (or discourage young families from coming). And finally boost up the number of shower rooms in the lower section – it needs to accommodate at least twice as many people.
It’s about a ten minute drive into town or to the nearest beach. Half that to the nearest supermarket.
We checked out after four nights and moved to another camp ground.
