We spent a few days here on a site which backed onto the river. We received a warm friendly greeting on checkin. Sites at the top are larger than those further down, concrete slabs are uneven and in places broken completely. I feel this is a park that could do with some serious TLC and maintenance. The bathroom amenities were very nice all being ensuite, however I hated the 5 min timed showers, a buzzer was suppose to warn you at the 4 min mark, but all of us using the amenities never heard the buzzer. I found noise was a problem, from the highway and the many trains that went thru at all hours, not the parks fault, but it was annoying. Several sites had fire pits, either their own or could be hired for $5 per night, and a bag of wood was $17, though this was great and very much appreciated. Lots of people were fishing from the banks and we saw several good sized fish being reeled in.

We arrived here yesterday afternoon, joining my Dad and his partner for a fortnight’s’ holiday. They have been here many times but this is our first visit. It is beautiful. We have a riverfront site. The campsites are very generously sized, surrounded by manicured lawns and shaded by tall trees. The bird life is plentiful. As I write this, I can hear many different bird calls amongst the trees and from across the river. I threw a line in this morning and caught a bream after only a few seconds, but have only got undersized ones since then. Will have another go shortly. Other guests are catching them too. There is a large, well-equiped camp kitchen, with plenty of tables. The amenities block is very clean, with good quality equipment in the laundry. $5 per load for washer or dryer (takes both $1 and $2 coins) The bathrooms are individual ensuite-style with key access. The key (provided at check-in) will open all bathrooms, so don’t leave your toiletries behind when you have finished in there. The park is around 25 minutes south of Coffs Harbour where you will find all major shopping requirements.

Idyllic little spot close to quieter areas of interest south of Coffs. Easy access to and from the highway without having to wrestle with Coffs traffic and more than you have to to get through. From here we day tripped to Urunga (the pier is well worth a visit and walk to the end), Bellingen (relaxed alternate vibe with a great pub), Sawtell and Coffs. Great spot for fisherfolk as it's RIGHT on the river. Spacious villas; good BBQ facilities. Office has small selection of basics (UHT milk etc) if you're caught out but best to shop in Coffs on your way through. Would love to stay again as it's a great halfway point to meet friends from Sydney. Prompt communication with owners; very good value.

Every two years my in laws get together there is 33 of us. Ranging in age from 1 - 75yrs with a mixture of tents, camper trailers and caravans. We have been doing this for over 20 years. A sibling picks a different place. This year we landed at the best spot I have stayed at for this camping trips. We had a waterfront site. It was amazing. I have never fished and by the end I was a “pro”. We tied three inflatable river rings to a long rope, had the SUP and 2 kayaks and the kids spent the days swimming, floating, fishing. We went to the beach, we swam in the tidal pool. We drove 15mins to explore Sawtell and Coffs. I finished a book and watched amazing sunsets most evenings. The amenities are again first class with the new style toilet, shower, sink (like an ensuite). It is definitely worth a visit.

Recently spent a week at this park. It is beautifully located right on the river and my site had river frontage. The amenities are new and clean although only two toilets are available for general use, the rest being allocated to specific sites, which makes it a bit difficult at rush hour. It was generally a relaxing and enjoyable week. I was a bit wary when I rang to book and was confronted by a recorded lecture on the parks zero tolerance of verbal abuse and language towards staff. I wondered why a caravan park would need to introduce every prospective client with such a stern lecture. Obviously because it must be a common occurrence at this park? The tone of the numerous rule notices around the park and on literature is rather daunting. And on reading the many reviews I was surprised to read so many “complaints” about the attitude of management/staff. Maybe the two issues are related. I found the lady in the office friendly and helpful. Just before leaving I did have an experience with one of the male staff, fitting other people’s descriptions, that was unpleasant. Not necessarily what was said (he may have had a point) but the manner and approach was unpleasant and, in my view, unprofessional. While there, my friends and I discussed making this our “go to” place for a quick week away. That may need some further thought but overall the park is a very lovely place to be. Sometimes when someone has been doing a job too long they can see everything through a somewhat jaundiced perspective. Life is too short. Time to move on maybe?

Hi Graeham K, Thank you for your kind words regarding our park. We take pride in keeping it clean, especially during these uncertain, challenging and scary times. Apologies for your wariness regarding our recorded message, we understand whilst the majority of our customers do not behave in such a manner, we do come across the odd customer who unfortunately does, thus the requirement for a message of this nature to be put into place. Yes, there is a lot of literature around the park, unfortunately this is part of this strange new world we are now a part of. We are doing our very best to keep our guests Covid Safe. We try very hard to accommodate everyone at our park and have to have strict rules regarding dogs on leashes and supervised at all times for the safety of all patrons. We are sorry that your Pet Policy breach resulted in an unpleasant experience with one of our staff. We would welcome the opportunity to have you back and give you a more positive experience next time.
