Staying at this park was absolutely fantastic, they had daily activities for the kids over Easter, movie nights, craft days and every Sunday they have pancake morning. The staff were lovely, cabins were spacious and very clean, great location right on the river. Highly recommend staying at this park and close to town if you want to go to beaches....

We had an ensuite powered site very close to the water. Large level cement pad. Couldn't want anything better until the gas bottle ran out and had a cold bird bath. Not so good at returning phone calls so just try again.

We recently stayed in one of the Superior Riverfront Villas and loved it. Right on the river and with a beautiful big deck to take in the views. The villa is nice and has everything you need for your stay. The park itself has plenty of facilities and a great pool and play area for the kiddies. Perfect place to...

Reviewed 1 January 2017

Wining and dining on the deck while the sun sets over the water is magical. Spend the extra for waterfront - its worth it. Initially we booked superior and allocated the villa by the boat ramp with other guests using our car space for their picnic table. But greatly appreciated being moved and upgraded to deluxe. Pool was clean and...

Enjoyed every minute of our four day stay at this Tourist Park. Peaceful and serene. Clean and tidy and Ameneties always clean. Managers of park friendly and courteous. River maybe a little busier on holidays and long weekends, but still worth the stay. Will most definitley return if opportunity arises.

Room was really nice, rooms were very nice for the kids and the master room was great! Very quiet. Great Service. Good food, great amenities. We were only a stones throw away from the river and a short walk to the playground equipment of which the kids loved. Would definitively come back. Photos will be added when my computer agrees...

A very noisy park full of drinkers. A tiny cabin despite stating it was a Villa for 6. Price very high for what you get. No channel nine on the small TV. We also found some previous guests men's underpants under the bed. Owners were very nice however.
