We stayed here with my cousins (4 families) for the passed 2 years. First year we camped on an ensuite site which I would recommend just so you can put your belongings locked up. This week we stayed in a cabin that sleeps 5. Whilst the cabins aren't great (good when all you want to do is sleeping in them)...

Excellent location- by the Clarence River and just out of both parts of Yamba. Lots of stuff to do with 2 swimming pools, boats for hire, BBQ's and go karts also for hire. Large area perfect for riding bikes. Ensuite sites have a large shower and not a lot of water coming out, basin (soap not provided) and a toilet.

Lovely holiday resort by the water. Plenty of things to do in the park for familys with children. Pool bar has been an excellent recent addition. The place os a little pricy but worth the expense. Park is always clean and in walking distance from the town shops.

Our family stayed 7 nights in the Waterfront Spa Villa. For the most part we had an amazing time and rarely left the park because the facilities were amazing. The pool bar was great and a fantastic atmosphere for families. Unfortunately we had one too many incidents of rude staff during our stay. At times it felt like asking for...

Great spot for families and young people alike. Lots of swimming pools, directly on the water and kayaks/boats to rent. We had a powered ensuite site that was perfect. Severe rain did cause some trouble for neighbouring sites that found themselves under water.

We stayed at this this resort for 7 nights in early Jan 2017. This place is right on the river which is useful if you have a boat or kayak. Very short drive to beaches or about 15 - 20 mins walk along the river. Great cycling and walking tracks around. Coles is 5 mins drive or 20 mins walk....

Blue Dolphin is our absolute favourite destination when we head to Yamba. Plenty for the kids to do, always clean and only a few minutes from the hustle and bustle of town. The new pool is fabulous, as is the bbqs on the river. Staff are friendly and amenities are second to none.

This was our 4th stay at Blue Dolphin and unfortunately it didn't live up to previous years. We stayed in a waterfront villa and from the moment we entered the floors felt incredibly dirty and gritty with sand, especially the bathroom. I understand it's a caravan park but for the tariff per night it would be nice to have the...

Loving it here so far, we have a choice of pools, hire shop for kayaks and pedal carts, activities for kids, the pool bar is pretty awesome! The kids are more than catered for with good tv room, games room, jumping pillow etc etc. Nice campsites, BBq's and amenities. We will be back!
