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.

Excellent little campground, shower units are brilliant. Very friendly staff. Will definitely come back here in future. Very handy for the beach; just across the road and a pizza place in town. Plenty of bars with live music. What’s not to like!

A small park which is very dated, amenities have not been updated in many years. The sites are not maintained, grass is very long in some sites. Maintenance is very poor in and around the park. Close to Kingscote, the water and a good walking/cycling track into town.

The friendly and helpful manager Con found us the perfect spot to park our massive bus. The atmosphere here is ultra casual and the location is brilliant. Park facilities look like they have been upgraded from previous reviews. We will come back.

Good spot given to us by Helen who runs the place as we were staying 11 days. Put us up towards the rear with a couple of long term vans. Very thoughtful. We had a good view of the bush with none in front of us. Saw heaps of birdlife, and Wallabies at night. Met some great people . Good enough amenities . Nice camp kitchen area with pot belly stove which was lit up a few times and swapped stories and places with other travellers. Very close to beach and nice walks. Thanks!

The park is located near Kingscote town and right next to a beach. A convenient location yet quiet and peaceful. We arrived during the check-in time stated in the confirmation email. However the office was closed as the operating hours were different in winter months. An envelope with my name on it was awaiting my arrival on the office door so we checked in smoothly. Just had to pop by the office the next morning to complete the registration. The park isn’t massive yet has many sites. Not too many were occupied at the time but more than those parks we had stayed earlier. Both toilets were being upgraded. Only 2 temporary toilets and 2 shower rooms were available. Sad to say that they weren’t quite sufficient even in low season. First time seeing the only area for cooking and sitting down to eat, namely the BBQ picnic area, being quite a bit of a distance from the only area for washing up, which was labelled as the camp kitchen. Luckily it wasn’t raining when we prepared our meals. Perhaps it was a temporary arrangement during renovation. Having said that, the BBQ picnic area was very nice, spacious and cosy. Wifi access was now provided but the strongest signal was at the BBQ area.

Good things: the park is lovely and quiet, owners were nice and helpful. Good positioning to tourist activities. Camping sites were reasonably large- good size for annex and to fit your car. Not so good: bathrooms are very run down and need some attention! Would go a long way if they were renovated a bit!

Good things: lovely camp kitchen, good supply of hot water, quiet location. Cabin - Bad things: live mice and mouse traps in the cabins. Mould growing in the bathroom. You have to supply your own toilet paper and dish detergent. The camp sites are extremely tight. Campervans and caravans had a hard time getting in and out and having an awning out meant you were encroaching on someone else's site.

This was a last minute booking for our campervan. We had a rented campervan and was suppose to stay in the National park but the roads were too rough for the campervan. The camp ground is clean and the toilets and showers were also clean and well tended too. As we were in a campervan we didn’t use any of the kitchen areas. The staff were incredibly helpful, we left an item on the clothes line and they sent it to our home address.
