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 stayed 1 night in one of the bell tents. Everything was in order and well maintained. Shared toilets and bathrooms were clean. Just have to keep showers to 5 minutes, else it will turn off automatically and you'll need to wait 1 or 2 minutes before you can use it again. There is a self-service coin operated laundry facility on site that is open 24 hours. AUD4 for washer and AUD4 for dryer.

If you're arriving late, there is a box for late arrivals.

While the greeting is always friendly and informative the facilities continue to amaze us. Everything you need is available. This time we booked the 3 bedroom deluxe safari tent for the 3 of us. The outdoor kitchen area has the electric hotplate and we set up the induction unit alongside it. Inside there is the microwave, toaster, pod coffee machine full sized fridge and electric jug. Each bed has an electric blanket, there is a heater and a reverse cycle a/c unit. There is a dining table inside along with a table on the outdoor deck which is ideal for al fresco dining and bird watching. The camp also has a well equipped share kitchen, indoor and outdoor dish washing areas. There are also multiple shared glamping dining room tents, a shower block and a laundromat. The beach is just a short walk away. We love our annual trips and will be back hopefully in late November because we enjoy staying here so much. Well done Louise and Kevin and save us some fish.

On arrival, we were impressed. Mr T is not a camping/glamping style of person, especially without his own bathroom, however, even he was impressed with the set up and cleanliness. The bell tents were immaculate and had everything you wanted.
Heating/cooling, comfortable beds, fridge, micro, TV, couch, seating, inside and out, lighting inside and out, a coffee pod machine, cutlery, crockery AND AN OUTDOOR FIRE.
This made Mr T love it I think.
We cooked using the BBQ at the camp kitchen, and sat and played games until we headed over to our fire to enjoy a few drinks. It was fab.
A bit disappointed that firewood wasn't supplied, however, at $5 for a big bag we quickly got over it.
Fabulous surroundings and a secluded beach.
We will be back for longer next time.
PS Showers and toilet cleanliness was above average I feel, and I am a camper.

Hi Phuketwergoing Thank you for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us We used to supply free fire wood but some guests thought it was a good idea to help them selves and take it home rather than use it We now charge $5 per bag which is what we pay for a bag Glad mr T loved it and look forward to your return visit

This park is the most modern I’ve seen. Besides the campsites for our vans being flat and perfect, the ablution block has automatic lights, button controlled showers and everyone is encouraged to mop the floor after a shower and also make sure the toilet is left clean. How I wish all parks would have the same standards!

My husband and I stayed with our two children in a 2 bedroom safari tent. Exceptionally clean. And was so pleased to see protectors on the pillows. Everything provided kitchen and bathroom wise. The bathroom was bigger than ours at home! The safari tent had a heat pump, and electric blankets on all the beds. Each bunk bed had it's own lamp, which was great. Firepot outside which was great for roasting marshmallows. The staff were lovely and very friendly. We stayed for one night. If staying for a longer period, we would have chosen a deluxe safari tent, as that has indoor and outdoor dining. Whereas the family safari tent has outdoor only. We went for a walk and saw the bell tents (from the outside), and they looked a nice setup. We also peeked at the shared amenities - individual shower rooms, and these also appeared spotless. We will be back!

Our annual fishing trip is over for another year. The greeting was as warm as it always is and we will look forward to staying again next year. We stayed in the 3 bedroom cabin - master, climb up and bunk beds were perfect for 3 old fishermen. The front balcony was a perfect platform to observe the various bird and wallaby visitors. A well equipped kitchen had everything we needed and the hot plate bbq got a workout. The laundry is centrally located and its a short walk to the surf beach through the bush. Quiet at night with just the sound of the surf occasionally in the distance. Always friendly and helpful service. Thanks folks

Stayed in one of the Safari Tents and it was great. Had everything we needed, especially heating. Could not see the ocean but could hear the waves crashing. Beach was not accessible due to the recent rains having blocked the path but i'm sure with gumboots or thongs wouldn't be a problem. We stayed during winter so there wasn't too many other people around but highly recommend for families or friends in summer time as tents are near each other so everyone could so easily share the space and many nights in front of the fires outside each tent. The tents were clean and cozy, the laundry facilities were good and so were the bbq areas! Closest town would be St Helens approximately 15 mins drive which has supermarkets and most other services.

We stayed here for six nights for my husbands birthday on a powered site. Louise and kevin the caretakers of the park were amazing in every way from taking the booking and helping us settle in. We were given site no 10 which is closest to the amenities of private toilet/shower that they let us use and the vast kitchen area with fridge/freezer, cookers etc. Just brilliant for us as we could store our food and use the amenities to do our cooking and washing up in luxury. The kitchens are thoroughly cleaned and sanitised in COVID time. Just a lovely location, close to the sea and a great area to just simply chill out. Just a lovely park with additional bell tents and cabins which are delightful. Thanks Kevin and Louise for a great stay.

Our large family had a three night stay in the wonderful family glamping tents and loved it. Firstly the owners were very helpful all the way from the first booking enquiry to checking in and throughout our stay. The tent area and park facilities were all very clean and well appointed. The kids enjoyed playing around the tent and park which made things easy for us. Cooking facilities were also first rate with plenty of fridge space in the commercial style kitchen block (which we didn’t expect). Special mention as well to the fire pot which was a great luxury after each big day at the beach. And the beds were really comfy! We will certainly plan to come again. Maybe checking out the new safari tents next time or a small tent if we can escape without the kids 😊.

Wow. What amazing glamping tents. We stayed in the 3 bedroom. Our young son loved the cubby and special "bunker bed"!
The tents are well appointed. They are set up with 3 sleep areas which would be well suited to a close family or group of friends. The kitchen was practical, and although we didn't use the outdoor kitchen/dining it looked perfect for summer.
The tent was very clean.
As much as we loved our stay, we could simply not go again during winter. The accommod
