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.

We loved staying here. Staff are so friendly and helpful. Cabins and facilities are modern & spotless! The little touches like crab folded towels on the beds and shell folded toilet paper! Loved it👌🏼👌🏼

Excellent location, most helpful and friendly hosts, use small tractor to place and collect van to/from sites. Early departures accommodated. Nightly gatherings around communal fire spot where host toasts huge size marshmallows, Wednesday morning brekky pancakes plus other periodic events on other days. Highly recommended.

We stayed in the new cabins (Pandanus 1) for 3 nights for a quick trip getaway. The park is fantastic to use as a base to go to the River for a paddle, (board and kayak) beach for a swim and a great base to access the rest of the SunShine Coast has to offer.

The rooms were immaculate and the bed super comfy. This cabin is wheel chair friendly with a ramp and sufficient space within the cabin (2 bedroom and bathroom). The cabin is well stocked with all utensils and cooking equipment and a Ziggy bbq on the deck. Could do with one spotlight / light on top of the bbq area / corner.

The park as a great little social scene located in front of the jumping mat and in front of these new cabins.

The band playing between 5-7pm on Thursday were excellent. Great atmosphere and the kids were all playing together at basketball , jump of and spotlight.

The park is exceptionally clean and well worth a visit. It didn’t seem to be overly jammed in either.

The owners seemed to really enjoy the place that they have created.

We will return. Out of all the parks we have been to, this one of the ones at the top.

Thanks for a great mini break ☺️

Hi all people wanting a relaxed quiet family holiday Start somewhere else,
On arrival we were told they only had one van arriving today although we had booked 2 sites for 4 days ( yes not one night) 2 days prior guaranteed beside each other due to my fathers disability. Arrived, we are told we are only expecting one van? I explained you told us you had 2 sites beside each other due to another person leaving days earlier who you had charged but not taken out of system. This was then acknowledged with apologies. But followed with we have now placed you on either side of the park, this is not as promised? This doesn’t suit us unless my fathers neighbour is going to be his caretaker during this visit. Reception doesn’t care to much, the lady seems to be put out by us because of her own mistake, her husband (I assume forgive me if I am wrong) is now irate placing his plastic gloved hand of which he just sanitised in front of my face saying he has had enough of this nonsense leave my property before he himself left the reception area and went outside (we assume he had a bad day or lives this way every day?) At this point as we are all Big 4 members I explained to the lady in reception of whom seemed more human than the gentlemen that if we cannot have as offered in the phone days prior we would leave. This was to either go back home back to Toowoomba as so disappointed with the Sunshine Coast’s Big 4 service or elsewhere during a busy time with no booking at this point it didn’t matter. We wouldn’t nor would we want anybody we know or associate with in the future to Ever stay here. In saying this we had traveled from Toowoomba up to Darwin and were leisurely spending our time back down the QLD coast on our way home over 4 weeks so not our first port of call this trip but the only one with pitiful service that we felt we were comfortable staying at on trip and any trip we have done, ever. However a good news story out of this, we travelled minutes down the road away from the noise of the highway overpass and mosquito’s of the river and arrived at Cotton Tree Caravan Park. Here we told reception of our daily adventure and they placed us on back to back shared sites with a discount due to the bad service we had received on the coast from there competitors. Not expected in the least but was taken and appreciated by us all. Added bonus, we can see the river, hear the surf and are not scared of the reception staff. Will definitely book again and ask for a refund on the Big 4 membership we signed up for last week.
My advice to this park OWN YOUR MISTAKES and make yourself better.

Usually would hold back on giving a bad review as I know what it can do to a business, however businesses like this one the general need to know about before arriving so they don’t have the experience we encountered.

Nothing too much trouble! They even park your van for you on arrival and take it out when you leave. Great hosts who provided a camp fire with free marshmallows and complimentary pancakes for breakfast. Will definitely be back.

A group of us camped here over the weekend and could not fault anything about the park. The owner goes out of his way to entertain guests, particularly kids. Nothing was too much of an effort for him and he was available to help any time we needed.
It felt like a safe place for kids to play as he would often close off the road, giving them chalk to draw on the roads and setting up outdoor games and movies.
Everything was spotlessly clean and the camp kitchen had everything you need.
We will definitely be going back again!

The moment your call is answered this park does it right, from their friendly office ladies to the Valet Parking of every Caravan and Camper.
They get it perfect positioned on the site and even help with levels. Every night at 4.30 Blake fires up the massive camp fire for Happy Hour and toasts the biggest Marshmallows you have ever seen. Wednesday morning we woke to the smell of freshly cooked pancakes, jam and cream or maple syrup. Coffee and tea also provided. Sharyn does a great job of cooking and preparing. Nothing is too much trouble and it is a credit to management. An experience we will never forget. Thank you guys. You have definitely got it right.

On arrival we were greeted by very friendly staff who told us to unhook our caravan and someone would come and get it and put it on our site for us with a small tractor. This was amazing as the sites were quite small and would have proved very difficult for us. The park itself was very neat & tidy with good amenities. A community camp fire is held each evening and all staff were very friendly. When ready to leave the little tractor came back and moved our van out the front for us to hook up. We were also given our own small hand sanitizer on check in ( a must in these COVID 19 days). Thanks for a great stay.

We booked into this park site unseen , the staff were great no doubt , but we paid for two nights and after the first night of no sleep because of the noise of the cars on the adjacent freeway...omg ! , could not wait to get out of the place. Do your self a favor don’t go there unless you you have absolutely no other options. When we checked out a day early not even a question as to why !!!

Best. Caravan. Park. Ever! We had the most fabulous 7 nights stay. Blake and Sharon were so kind and welcoming, and organised so many activities for the kids from movie nights, craft and pancake breakfasts, to getting them to cater and afternoon tea / happy hour for all the parents. Pool was great, facilities were lovely and clean, we will be back, cannot recommend highly enough.
