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.

Great clean toilet/showers, camp kitchen and laundry facilities. Plenty of rubbish and recycling bins. Friendly and helpful staff. Close to town centre, beach and river. Great prices. Plenty of space. Cabins, caravans, tents and vans.

Lovely campsite nestled on the river, woke to the sounds of kookaburras and spotted a koala. Quiet spot despite being a short walk from the restaurants/pubs in Apollo Bay. Clean facilities and good location for tourist spots on Great Ocean Road. Highly recommend!

Muddy mess, no one to contact after hours, unclean clean amenities (used tampons on the floor for several days) Roads in and out full of large potholes and most sites are water ridden when it rains. If you don’t have a 4 wheel drive don’t bother as other vehicles where getting bogged. We stayed at this park as friends wanted to try it and were also equally disappointed. Our recommendation is to stay at the Big 4 holiday park.

The worst caravan park we have ever stayed in. Bathroom facilities are disgusting, and when I spoke to the cleaner she said there isn’t much we can do as they are old. There were cobwebs and dust everywhere. Toilet paper on the floor and it wasn’t cleaned once in the 24 hours we were there. Booked and paid for 2 nights but left after 1. No refund offered. Lady on reception wasn’t really interested in my feedback and explained that she has been asking the cleaner to pick up their act. Clearly nothing had changed. The garbage bins were overflowing and also not emptied in the time we were there. We decided to do our laundry at the local laundromat as those facilities at the caravan park were gross too. Do not stay at this park unless you have a caravan with all your own facilities and don’t care about poor customer service.

The park is very quiet and in a beautiful spot, with the river running thru and beach across the road. There were plenty of very well behaved dogs, and it had a really nice vibe to it. The service was impeccable will definitely be back. We had someone in our spot when we arrived( their fault not parks) but I called after hour number and a dude came within 10 min and sorted us in a different spot. He was super nice, we really appreciated the quick responds

The manager at reception needs a refresh in customer service, we arrived to check in and she basically just handed me the envelope and said “all the details are in there” and walked off. We are travelling around Australia and I’ve never experienced that level of rudeness from reception in any campground!

We had an unpowered site , and got a nice grassy site along the river. The amenities block was okay, clean but the shower was pretty average. Check in was easy and reception was nice and friendly. Was a nice quite place to stay, would be a bit of a hike into town though.

We had a campsite right on the river. The outlook was really nice and peaceful. It’s a little bit of a walk into town so make sure you unclip your trailer. The place is pretty simple so maybe not for everyone. Make sure also that you pack the bug spray. wow. Lots of bities. Great place to stop.

My partner and I made a last minute booking for an unpowered site at the Apollo Bay Rec Reserve - unfortunately our trip to NSW was cancelled due to COVID-19. We are so happy with our decision!! We were allocated a spot along the river and it was stunning. Quiet and peaceful with beautiful views of the hills and paddocks. All of the campers around us were so respectful, including the cows across the river! I was expecting poorer facilities based on other reviews I'd read, but we were pleasantly surprised to find that everything was clean and easily accessible. We also noticed security/staff patrolling the grounds multiple times each day which was reassuring. The campground is a short walk to the shops and the beach - you can even hear the waves crashing in the distance as you fall asleep. The only feedback I have would be the the booking process. We couldn't find a way to book online so therefore tried calling multiple times as well as emailing but heard nothing. On the 4th call we managed to get through and the lady on the phone was lovely - she booked us in no worries and was very helpful! It was definitely worth the effort. Based on our whole experience, we would definitely recommend this campground.
