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.

This was probably the best park we have stayed at during our coastal trip from Maroochydore to Melbourne. The site is perfect, clean, spacious with good free wifi. We will definitely camp here again. Highly recommend.

We are not really keen on caravan parks as we are set up for independent camping but this not really possible to do on the Sapphire Coast as we have a dog. Staying at Kalaru CP was very peaceful and relaxing. It’s in a great location and is ideally close to Tathra, Tura Beach and Merimbula. We truly appreciated the wonderful camp kitchen which made our stay much easier to wash our dishes. The park is very well kept, it’s clean, tidy and the staff are friendly and accommodating. The amenities are perfectly fine and negative reviews are not warranted. The only issue for us was poor TV reception which is nothing to do with the park. We found staying at Kalaru CP was the next best thing to independent camping and we would happily stay here again. 😊

We enjoyed the Easter break at Kalaru in our caravan with 2 other families and their vans . We have seen a few bad reveiws, most are not justified. As far as Park Management goes its all good. Ammeneties are dated but were clean. Park is quiet and sites are large. We did not have any issues whilst we were there. On the con side there is a few issues with the Laundry machines that need attention / replacement, also a Permenant Resident who has flags flying on her unit tends to yell at guests if she deems they are driving too fast. Perhps she should be moved to a "quieter" part of the park at the back and not on the main road into the Caravan Sites so as not to terrify unwary guests. Perhaps she doesnt realise without Guests the park may close.

Great quiet little park, clean amenities. Great fenced dog run for the dogs. Bit worried about some older reviews but couldn't fault anything. Great little cafe on site. Nice to have a quiet park to return to after a busy day out touring.

Beautiful surroundings and very close to the beach. Great staff who had only just taken over a week before. Very accommodating as they allowed us to arrive early. CJ’s cafe on site served delicious food and AMAZING coffee. Great customer service.

We were fortunate to purchase a 10 night stay via Travel Auctions and had been warned by friends that the park had received poor reviews, in particular the condition of the amenities. Therefore our expectations were low. What we found was a park in a peaceful setting, some large grassy sites and friendly and accommodating managers. The park surrounds were being continuously and actively maintained during our stay. It is an old park and the amenities blocks are in need of updating although new toilets have been installed. Unfortunately the cleanliness of the shower and toilet block did leave a lot to be desired. Location ok, 10 Min drive to Tathra or 30 Min drive to Bega. Not a lot within walking distance of the park.
