Stayed in an ensuite cabin which was a reasonable price, clean and offered good amenities (air-conditioning, bunk beds, dining area). The park was really well kept and looked like it had good cooking facilities and rec hall to suit everyone! We arrived after 9pm but had no issues collecting the key - thanks! The park was a quick walk to...

The managers and staff were both friendly and helpful. The place was clean. With great facilities. Having the option of plugging into their TVs antenna was great. Having come across this before. They also have free wifi. The only suggestions we have is that the camp kitchen could do with a few more sinks as there was a bit of...

Great park, friendly owners but a bit on the expensive side for powered sites, particularly during peak. There is a no pets policy during school holidays so pet owners be aware. Hotel almost opposite serves good meals and the local store has great fish and chips.

We recently stayed for 3 nights with 2 camper trailers - we had the 2 sites (88-89) shown in the website picture where the motor home is parked. Site location was great with kids - just walked down the bank to the river - was safe for kids to paddle in but still good enough to fish. Facilities are well...

While we were cooking in the common kitchen in the evening, Electricity was powered off. Reception was closed. It's Unacceptable, also for secure reasons (gas cooking facities). It is an expensive camping, more than several hotel in Sydney.

Often when you pitch a small tent in a caravan park you feel like the leftover; tenters are often relegated to the worst part of the park; small site, weedy, hot, patchy grass at best, limited water access etc. But not here. For the most reasonable price on the GOR yet we had a beautiful large grassy site, water and...

We stayed in the cabins. They were tidy, clean, and newly furnished (or well maintained). The staff were friendly and the facilities were good - they're all listed on the campsites website, and from what we used they're all pretty decent and well maintained.
