We stayed here for one night when we got off the spirit of Tasmania, the lady in office was lovely and very helpful, however that’s the only nice thing about this park, we were put on a site which backed into a permanent van an beside a permanent tent, as soon as night hit OMG the language was absolutely appalling, yelling and screaming, we were a little nervous about sleeping, there was an elderly lady camped next to us she left her light outside light on all night, I went to walk our dog in the morning near the play ground and you couldn’t walk there as it was completely covered in dog poop, looks like it had been there for months, I would not recommend this place nor ever go there again, 🤮🤮

Hi Wendy, I am sorry you feel your stay was not a nice experience. I just want to clarify that you were situated in the Tourist section of the park and everyone else in that section are also classed as Tourist. The people you are referring to are not residents of the park and were only here as tourists. Upon arrival everyone is given a number to call for any issues after office hours and this number is also located on the front door of the office. If I had been made aware of the situation of the yelling and screaming by anyone in the park I would have gone and dealt with it at the time. I have worked hard over the past 14 months as manager to turn the park around and create a quiet park for everyones enjoyment. As for the dog poo we apologise if some is missed. We do request all dog owners clean up after their dogs and staff do their best to keep the grounds clean but we are a small staff park maintaining 10 acres of land so sometimes these things get missed. Again I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. Regards, Lauren, Manager

We stayed a few nights at Eldorado, visiting family, and found the caravan park to be very pleasant with friendly campers and helpful staff. The gardens and facilities were neat, tidy and clean. The ensuite was an added bonus for us in our camper trailer, it was nice to have one to ourselves. With easy access to the Highway its in a good location to get to Geelong, the great ocean road, and for us it was straight up to Ballarat. . Looking forward to return visits and staying longer. Thank you Lauren, family and staff for looking after us. J. & V.

We recently stayed for 2 nights as a base to explore the first half of the Great Ocean Road (Torquay to Lavers Hill). The park is easily accessible from the M1 and an easy drive into Geelong. All staff were very friendly. Every powered site comes with an en-suite but the sites are not very deep. We were allocated site 66. Our van only just fitted on the site and then with our car parked at the side, there was not enough room to have our awning out. As there was no one on the site behind, we were able to drive through to park our van but access would have been a bit tight if we had to reverse onto the site. The access into the park itself, could be a bit challenging with a caravan as you have to park up in a designated area to complete the registration then take a sharp turn to the right and line the van up to go through the boom gate. There is a large rock on the right side of the entrance and then a couple of posts to negotiate before the boom gate itself. One tip, get out of the car to use the key fob to open the boom gate!!

Thank you for your review Julie. The Park is now 40 years old, built back when caravans and cars were a lot smaller. Our sites cater for 29ft in length which accommodates 95% of caravans coming into the park. The boom-gate is for security, to stop people who are not registered as guests, coming into the park. I have been in the park since 2017 and have never (until now) had any issues with people negotiating around the rock as the rock is not on the actual road, its to the right of the road coming in. The reason for the rock and also the big logs is also for security as they prohibit any-one from driving up the kerb and onto the sidewalk next to the boom-gate, and letting themselves in to the caravan park. We have endeavoured to make sure our residents and guests have as much safety whilst staying with us. We hope you enjoyed your stay with us and you had a safe trip home. Kind regards Leesa

We spent 2 nights in a Campervan to explore the great ocean road and Torquay Beaches. Very well located, cheap and clean. The powered site is with an own bathroom (ensuite)The small Swimmingpool(cleaned every evening) made our children happy! The owner helped us out with a clogged grey water pipe! Thank you again!!!
