For the last 10+ years we have spent Easter in your park (4 cabins and 7-8 sites) This year we were informed for next Easter we would have to pay 50% deposit and not be guaranteed the sites or cabins requested The take it or leave it attitude from the staff who accepted no responsibility and put all the blame...

The amenities were clean and lake views are beautiful however some cement slab sites would be great as it was very wet under foot even after a week of no rain. Also the bird life is very noisy in the park however that is through no fault of the park

Good camping sites with great view onto the lake. Good camp kitchen and ammenities, although I found the toilets needed more cleaning on most of the week. Beaches and major shops about 10-20 minutes drive.

The location is great, and then it stops. The rooms were dirty, the price was too high for what you got. We found the amenities to be lacking. There should be a games room and more for the price we paid. Other than the tramp and pool, there's not much else.

I would stay there again. It was clean, comfortable and had all the basics needed. The jumping attraction, playground, ducks and pool were all fantastic for the little ones. The bed was comfortable. The fridge is a great size. All that you need for a short term stay.

On the southern shores of Lake Macquarie, this place is magic! Caravan sites, camping sites and waterfront cabins all at the most exquisite location. No traffic noise, wonderful waterfront walks/bike rides and well kept grounds and facilities.
