Stayed in a chalet for two nights. Unit was spacious (3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms). Very pleasant stay and good base for the Garden Route. Lovely to sit on the patio for morning coffee and enjoy the sounds of nature.

We enjoyed camping at Lake Pleasant. The stands are wonderful - level ,grassed, large and surrounded by beautiful trees which leads to amazing bird life. Although the ablutions ( in a Spanish style building) are dated they are spotlessly clean- cleaned several times a day. The laundry/scullery is a bit rustic - but the washing machines ( coin operated )...

Right from booking the caravan sites and the chalet (for our parents) to the day of departure, we were treated royally by owner and manager Stuart. Despite being fully booked and having to run around after his guests, Stuart remained (mostly) cool, calm and collected, and attended to...

Our Garden Lodge was all clean and shiny on arrival, and spiffed up again the following day by 2 friendly staff members. The service by staff is great, you really don't have to do anything. Our 2 children aged 5 and 11 enjoyed the park-setting and swimming pool, and quickly made a bunch of friends. Being situated at Groenvlei (Lake...

Wonderfull camping site with good facilities. Close drive to the nearest beach. Good family camping site. Nice and quiet. The N2 can be a bit noisy but you get used to it very quick! Maybe a pathway from the batrooms would be nice!

Camping at Lake Pleasant leaves the visitor with options from the well-lit central area to the wilder perimeters. The area is beautiful, and bordering the Goukamma Nature Reserve means that there is just enough wilderness and wildlife to tantalise without being too scary. On the campsite I saw a tame tortoise, meerkat, guinea fowl family and hadeda - in addition...
