We have stayed at this park many times before BUT it has now changed hands. We arrived at 11.30 am and asked about the availability of a powered site. We were told to come back at 2pm or, if we wanted the site now, we would have to pay an additional 50%. Needless to say, we opted to go to Yamba. Not a good attitude from these managers - will not be returning.

Response from Sharon Hearne, General Manager at Maclean Riverside Caravan Park
Responded 11 Jun 2021
Hi Diana As new owners of the Park I am truly sorry that you were met with the “come back response”. I have discussed this in depth with our managers and can assure you it will not happen again in our Park. My view on the matter is that if you arrived early and the site was vacant you should have been made feel welcome. Many thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback, this is how we improve. I wish you safe travels. Kind regards

This little caravan park is across the road from the river, not on the riverfront exactly. We had site 9 and 10 which I think were the best. They were close to the front. I liked them because they were relatively private and close to the bbq facility (which was spotless!) Amenities were dated but absolutely spotless. Park was very quiet overall. Lovely people. Great owners who worked really hard on the park upkeep. Short walk into Maclean itself and to the fisherman’s co-op. The Maclean market (see photo) was on also so it was good to be close by. I would recommend staying here out of the hustle and bustle of Yamba

Cabin was dirty, our feet were black from walking on the floor, every screen on the cabin had holes so we couldn’t open the windows. When we did open the windows during the day we were infested with ants and other bugs. On the upside, they did supply Mortein. Shower was filthy and rat or mouse poo was behind the couch. We ended up purchasing cleaning stuff just to make the place half decent. We were also came back on two occasions to find the camper van making use of our car park as a dining area. Topped it off!
