Reviewed yesterday NEW

Needs closer showers to bottom of park. Like the fact they moved the jumping pillow away from gates Could do with some repairs of bbq area screens so you can eat somewhere when raining. Play equipment is dated not much for older kids to do. Park is pretty tidy, the bbq cooking and kitchen facilities are great.

Enjoy our stay every year. Look forward to returning next year and hoping the waterfront campsites have gotten re-turfed! Lots of wildlife, the kids enjoy the pool and jumping pillow. The camp kitchen has lost its blinds which were missed on a rainy weekend.

Over all our stay was quiet pleasant. Enjoyed our spot in the park, which was over looking Lake Macquarie. The smell from the river next to cabin had an odour from time to time. Otherwise an enjoyable stay

Sorry, I didn't like the power station but we need electricity! It was very quiet and I slept well and that was fine.People were nice and helpful. Next time I will choose the site near the lake with the beautiful view.

Excellent, Quiet, reasonable level, friendly park on lake walking distance to small shopping centre with everything but a butcher, but small store has frozen meat for BBQ if required at short notice. Park has it's own boat ramp and Jetty. There is a salt pool, play ground and jumping pillow for the children as well as young oldies. All facilities...

Visited this park and was very surprised with its location amenities and access to the beautiful Lake Macquarie. Boat ramp inside park was an extra bonus. Would recommend this park to anyone wishing a relaxing stay, and who enjoys fishing.

The cabin was in a great location right next to the boat ramp, great water views, having a BBQ on the verandah was fantastic. The only negative for us was the bunk bed configuration is not the best for adults to sleep probably designed for kids. Overall a fantastic stay

The Beach House is good but it just needs new blinds in the main bedroom, toilet cistern and seat looking very tired. Other than that it was great. BBQ on front deck, large lounge room with beautiful view and everything in the kitchen you require.

Great location, great facility, comfortable and clean. We arrived early on motorbikes on a hot day and were welcomed to check in early and then found our cabin already cooled by air con! Doesn't get any better than that!!
