Very friendly people. nice swimming pool but no toilets near the pool. Needs more bar-b-que areas. Various cabin prices but I stayed in a mid price cabin which was a bit dated and small. Very noisy fridge which was unplugged at night due to the noise. A car is required to get to the centre of Geelong.

This is a good, simple, clean park. It is in a good location even if travelling the great ocean road. Facilities were clean, good camp kitchen, and clean laundry area. The pool is small but clean and nice and the jumping pillow is great. Two kids play areas are excellent! It is close to a road and if you are...

We stayed here 3 nights on a powered site with our caravan and was right up against a boundary fence with busy roads right on the other side. The road noise was annoying when trying to sleep. The amenities were dated but clean. The park was ok but we will most likely try another park next time in Geelong.

The powered camp sites are at the back with only a fence dividing campers from a main road. The traffic noise was extremely loud and kept us awake all night. I booked for 3 nights and left early after 2 nights, as my family just couldnt stand the noise. It is not peaceful at all. Upon arrival the male at...

I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay. Unfortunately we cannot control outside traffic noise and being that it is right in the middle of Summer, peak period and Geelong is a popular holiday destination - it is definitely expected that there is more traffic around this time of year. We are a family owned and operated business...

We found this park to be very clean and quiet. We stayed 3 nights and didn't hear the traffic noise at all. Lovely clean toilets and showers with security code on entrance door to amenities block. Big clean laundry, with a pool and bbq area. Office staff helpful, polite and friendly. Close to cycle and walking paths which hugged the...

I recently have had the displeasure of dealing with the Barwon River tourist park regarding a cancellation of a booking 2 weeks out from the stay. I had to cancel my booking due to medical reasons and was told that my deposit would be refunded should they be able book the cabin out. I phoned at the start of the...

I am sorry that you feel this way but we are definitely NOT shonky & misleading! We are a family owned and operated business and we pride ourselves in our holiday park and the customer service that we provide our guests, at all times. It is very unfortunate that you needed to cancel your booking with only 2 weeks notice,...

Cabin had everything we needed, as two adults we had to decide who used the bunks, I slept in the middle one with no problem, one was too high and the other too low. Great spot near the river and walking distance to a 24hour Coles and KMart.

We stayed two nights in a caravan site near the entrance. The staff are very friendly , amenities very clean with plenty of showers ( with shower curtains ) and toilets. Spacious laundry , pool, jumping mat and lots of cabins. Would stay here again. It's right near the main road and bridge but we heard no road noise ....

Thanks Don & Noel. I was a bit hesitant about our stay when you had to call me back during business hours to confirm any availability... But you did and we were not disappointed. Our refurbished cabin is clean and tastefully coloured. Basic amenities in cabin appear relatively new too. Our saviour last night was the split system. As it...
