On arrival the women said a smart mouth subliminal abuse of public information comment. So did the man on the final day at reception. The park is located next to a 24hr K-MART which I did visit in the dawn hours. I was the only customer until a few spying stalkers followed me in. Wondering how they support those graveyard...

Staff were good, helpful. Our site was really good with concrete for the annexe and tons of room for the car. The big plus was that it is a drive thru site. We had shade from a big tree (one that doesn't drop nuts or whatever) so that was a bonus as March can be hot. The power point for...

I have just spent the last 5 nights here and had such an amazing time. There is plenty to do on the campsite for the kids and families. There is also shops close by like coles, Kmart and Aldi. The river is also beautiful to walk down. It's also close to the sea.

It was excellent, great location, clean. The only fault are the bunk beds. They should be made up not left for the guest to make. Good value for money. Staff excellent. A light in the second bedroom would have been good

So happy that you enjoyed our holiday park and our fantastic location. We do supply all the bedding for the bunks but yes we do leave them to be made by the guest, to keep our guests rates as low as possible. We hope to see you back again soon and please feel free to request to have the bunks...

Situated close to Geelong city and other beaches, this caravan park has a heated swimming pool, the caravan sites vary in size. The managers are very obliging and the amenities block are dated but are clean.

We recently stayed here for a quick two night stay. Staff were lovely, everyone from the office staff to the maintenance staff. Cabin was great & the kids loved the playgrounds, jumping pillow, go karts & pool. Walking distance to supermarket, KMart & plenty of plenty of places to eat. Short drive into Geelong CBD & waterfront. Highly recommend staying...

Very friendly people. nice swimming pool but no toilets near the pool. Needs more bar-b-que areas. Various cabin prices but I stayed in a mid price cabin which was a bit dated and small. Very noisy fridge which was unplugged at night due to the noise. A car is required to get to the centre of Geelong.

Glad you enjoyed your stay and our facilities. We do have a main amenities block only about 10 meters from our swimming pool. We have a great double bbq alongside our swimming pool and another double bbq area in our camping area, along side our 2nd playground. We are only a short drive to Geelong Waterfront and CBD - approx...

This is a good, simple, clean park. It is in a good location even if travelling the great ocean road. Facilities were clean, good camp kitchen, and clean laundry area.
