If you want to park your motorhome and be walking distance to shops, restaurants and the beach this is a great choice. This is a pet friendly, well kept park with lovely staff and excellent amenities. Shoal Bay beach is just across the road and an excellent coffee, and seafood shop an easy walk away.

Me and my partner headed up for valentines weekend in our camper van and as soon as we got there and checked out the facilities we were amazed at how nice it was. Then we checked out the location and saw it was so close to the bay and walking distance to the shops, cafes and restaurants. Also a 10 minute walk to the bottom of the tomaree hike which was awesome. Probably the best toilet and shower facilities we’ve ever seen at a campground and would 110% come back. The express check was also very convenient as you didn’t have to go in and check in and out when you were there which saved a lot of time. Overall very good atmosphere and place (even with the rain) and would definitely come back!

We LOVE this beach, and this park has the best access to it. The facilities are new, the bathrooms are lovely, and with young children the family bathroom was a God send! The site's not massive, but with separate parking for our car it didn't need to be. There was an incident of theft (luckily not our stuff) but it wasn't the park's fault, just young idiots that strike at many holiday parks sadly. It was well managed by the park management. The security guard was lovely, but we would have liked to see more security if possible? The front office staff were fantastic! The laundry is great, lots of machines! Location is 100%! Close to the most beautiful beach, local shops, and so much to do in the area (Toboggan Hill heaps of fun! A 10 minute drive). We have rebooked for next year and look forward to revisiting! :-)

Shoal Bay holiday Park is perfectly located directly opposite Shoal Bay beach and an easy walk to numerous cafes and restaurants. The bathroom facilities are the best I have seen in a camping ground. Good sized and well maintained tent sites with great shade from surrounding trees.
