My husband and myself stayed at this wonderful park for seven weeks. What an absolutely beautifully run and managed park. Not only are the grounds well kept and tidy as it’s covered in tropical trees with a creek running along the boundary it’s very clean. I was always seeing staff cleaning the facilities several times a day. There are turtles to feed as well as fish and it’s fun to try and manage to get some food to the turtles as the fish are so fast. Most of the staff were a delight and a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend this place to everyone but make sure you book for a while so you can really enjoy this place.

We had such a great stay on our way up north that we stopped again on the way back. Bbq area is very spacious with 3 huge bbq’s and cook tops. The turtle and fish feeding was a standout. The grounds are very well kept and the amenities were always super clean. The care takers were fantastic, very friendly and happy to help us out! Would highly recommend staying there. We will be back!
