We stayed here overnight and the park is quiet and within walking distance to town. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful with suggestions. The cabin we stayed in was very adequate for our needs.

We have just returned from a 1 week stay in the Malibu spa cabin, what a fantastic park and what an amazing time we had. The cabin was clean, tidy and adequately fit 3 adults and 2 kids. Park facilities and maintenance were of an exceptional status! Kids just could not get enough of the water slides and water park. We were also lucky to have kids club on each morning, in which my girls ran too every morning as well as movie nights in the evening. My only regret is that we didn't book a poolside villa!! Would have loved an oven or grill in our cabin, but apart from that we mixed up BBQ, eating out and cooking in the room. We are now planning our next trip next year, thank you for providing a wonderful park!

Terrific caravan park right on the Fishpen, nestled between the surf beach and the lake. A kids paradise with 3 pools, waterslides, jumping pillow, and splash pad, movies and activities during school holidays. Walk or cycle to town and leave the car at home. A typical Big 4 park - targeted to young families. We chose it because of the location - perfect. Fishing on the beach at the end of the street. Sites are spacious and well laid out. Some sites can be difficult to get onto so be prepared for a bit of shuffle if you are in peak time like we were. We will be back but will try and avoid school holidays.

Room Tip: ask for a site with easy access if you have a big van

Have waited for years to get back here and was disappointing. Staff however were lovely.
The park is getting a bit dated and the pics on the website were not a good indication of how things actually are.
The pool area needs an overhaul, especially the pool bottom, it needs identifying strips on stairs and beach areas in the pool. Saw so many older people fall into or within the pool as you could not see where stairs and slopes started or finished. The second thing was the white filter popups through the pool, multiple stubbed toes and bruised feet, especially for kids because of this. Also the broken tiles, light fitting inside the pool and filter covers were also a hazard. The waterslide pool also needs more water, two children both with grazed backs from hitting the bottom.
We did have a good stay however, although the prices are extremely high for what you get, especially in the villas. Merimbula as always was lovely.
Worth noting are the grey nomads that took over the pool, BBQ area and camp kitchen at night. I understand you have been coming here for years, so have we. We however dont ask people to leave areas because we want the space for us and our mates. They even took food off a bench and packed it up. Ur lucky it wasnt my husband you tried that on. You do not own anything, and im damn sure we have paid more and spent more here in my 5 years than you in your 20 years! So pull Ur heads in and share. You were poor examples for our children.
Also the number of visitors on weekends in the pool was ridiculous. Overheard 2 mums saying how they come up from Pambula to use the pool as they dont have to pay, like at the aquatic centre!!! Ummm im paying 200+ a nite and Ur swimming in the pool???? Oh and 7 kids between them. Seriously, no bands no swim? Thats what our kids were told!
Unfortunately we wont return, thats not the staffs fault, we simply were disappointed. There were so many rules that applied to us paying the big bux, but apparently I could have paid less and done more.
Others around the park were also questioning standards, and also Big 4 ratings. I

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Trip Advisor, we value all feedback as it allows is to keep improving our park. I am sorry that your expectations were not met this time.
In your review, you thought that the park was run down which is very surprising as we have spent a lot of time and money remodelled the BBQ /Camp kitchen, rendered and repainted all the external brick buildings, put in a brand new Splash Water Park with new BBQ area, resurfaced the roads around the cabins and made new compounds for the rubbish bins, painted outside most of the cabins and revamped the gardens. We thought it looked pretty good.
You also mentioned the pools need work. This is on the work schedule for this winter for this year. We had the toddler pool resurfaced last winter but unfortunately, bubbles appeared which meant water was getting underneath the surface. We asked a fibreglass expert in for his opinion. On his advice we kept the pool open not to upset the guests as nothing could be achieved until this winter coming. The surface will have to be ground off and dried and resurfaced again. Yes it does look unsightly but a empty pool with 'do not enter' tape around would be worse, at least it can be used on a hot day.
I am really sorry for the behaviour or our guest, that is unacceptable. i wish that you brought this to our attention so we could speak to them.
I can assure you that, other than our staff and their children, we do not allow locals to use the pool area for free. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We do allow day visitors in but limit it to 5 families. On the Saturday we did have a birthday party, however, that is limited as well to 3 hours max and they pay as well.
Thank you again

Staff were very helpful. We were upgraded to a pool side villa as the cabbin we were allocated did not have parking for our boat. Even though I had requested a cabbin with boat parking when booking 10 months before our trip. This was resolved very quickly much to our satisfaction. Park is very well maintained with clean facilities. Pool & splash park area is great kids had a ball. We did stay mid season & park was very cramped would not stay here in peak season due to lack of space.

If mistakes have been made we do try to rectify problems quickly as our aim is for you to have a great stay with us. February for us, is still like peak season as we are full most nights.
