Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed here in our caravan with our dog. Our site was the largest site we’ve ever had whilst camping. We had an ensuite and there was a good distance between each plot.

The campsite itself was very well maintained and the managers were always available to help us And were friendly and welcoming.

The price was excellent and we will definitely stay here again, we had a wonderful relaxing time.

We spent the weekend at Kismet Riverside Caravan Park a couple of kms west of Howlong near Albury/Wodonga. A credit to the new very friendly owners, Craig & Kerryn, who have tidied & cleaned up the park amazingly!!! All the facilities were really really clean and tidy and it was not expensive to stay with most sites having individual ensuites. We will definitely be back as we were so impressed. Highly recommend others checking it out. Also if golfing inclined then make sure you have a hit at the Howlong Golf course which was exceptionally green and maintained. Also the butcher has great chicken kievs!!! 😀😀😀

The team at Kismet Howlong looked after all our needs and the accomodation was spot on.
We came to Kismet with 14 couples and kids about a group of 50 people. The facilities were clean and well maintained by Host Craig. Kerryn arranged bbq area and went out of her way to assist in the two functions and made our group fell welcome and at home.
Kids were safe riding bikes or playing tennis, pool or air hokey,adults enjoyed the facilities and the function room
Would highly recommend Kismet to travelers and groups!!

Myself, 3 sons, 2 brothers and my grandson stay for 2 nights and done a lot of fishing. Craig & Kerryn where absolutely amazing hosts. The whole complex and surroundings are awesome. Our cottage was spot on, very clean and everything required for cooking to washing is supplied. Beautiful pool and heaps off shade and ample parking. Fantastic boat ramp, plenty of space at the ramp to moor our 3 boats. Parking area for vehicles and trailers. Would be one of the best places I have stayed at 😀

We arrived on the 27/2/24 and were a group of 8 men doing a bucket list trip from Albury to Bundalong stopping at Howlong’s Kismet riverside lodge. The accommodation was excellent neat tidy and spacious. The pool was a relief after a long boat trip. Our host could not have been more helpful. My only suggestion would be to put a Kismet sign up on the river bank and to build a pontoon mooring jetty to tie the boats up to , this would allow less able older folks to gain easy access to the accommodation. This would also allow boats to be secure for the stay.
Thank you Kismet you exceeded our expectations.

Beautiful cleans and tidy park out of town on the river. Ensuite block is spotless and the sites are lovely and green. I was under a beautiful tree so had loads of shade. Highly recommend if you want to just sit back and relax or fish or cool off in the pool 😎. Kerryn and Craig are wonderful hosts.

We had so much fun and thanks to Craig and Kerryn for your outstanding service! Our space was perfect for our big group. The kids loved being so close to the river and fishing and swimming. Can't wait until next year when we do it all again! Thankyou

This is a great spot to stay, quiet friendly hosts. Room was clean and comfortable. Although stayed only one night, one could easily spend a week at this place, This would be a good base to explore the region. Bed was comfy and room was sufficiently big enough for the two of us .

Very convenient for us as we were calling into Kismet White Suffolk Stud which was next door the following day. Lovely to meet Rhonda and Mark at their caravan park when we arrived late on the Saturday afternoon. The room was clean and adequate for our one-night stopover. The park itself is in a natural setting local to the River Murray and although we didn't get time to explore, I would imagine that it's a great spot to bring kids.

Once again this park did not disappoint. Stayed here last January for long weekend and returned again in 2024. Was great to see the progress with ongoing improvements. We are a large family group and there is something for everyone. The river front camping looks amazing and the park facilities were spotless. Thanks Kerryn and Craig for all your special attention to detail and fantastic service. Lovely staff as well. I will be returning in January 2025 and probably again before then.
