Best place! Love it, wouldn't go anywhere else. Staff are great, rules are fair, fellow campers are great. Never seem to have an issue with anyone else staying at the caravan park! Good to see that they are doing up the parks over the next few years

No lies about this being Bayside. You can't get much closer to the beach. Very quiet and clean park. Amenities reasonably new and kept very clean. Showers even have doors not curtains (love that). Staff very courteous, happy and helpful (thanks Helen). Highly recommend.

We love this place, nice sites and fantastic amenities.

Initial thought was no trees, so used to staying in more rural areas. But this is a great holiday park, well laid out - great amenities - specially great for families and children. Location is excellent, within walking distance to the quaint shopping strip. Lots parkland around, good walks and great bike paths. The camping sites are plenty big and... More

We stayed in a Park Cabin for 3 nights. which was spotlessly clean and had lovely bedding. The cons were: The area around the cabin was very smelly ( not sure the source- maybe rotting seaweed or something, but I wouldn't stay here again.

Hi JoW26 Thank you for your review. Unfortunately being so close to the beach there will always be a seaweed/beachy smell throughout our holiday park.

This park is HUGE!! It is also beach frontage and fantastic for families with young kids. Boat ramp and ample parking for day visitors. The park facilities are clean and well maintained and the camp bbqs and kitchens are as well! Definitely worth staying here any time of year.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bellarine Bayside operates absolute beachfront holiday parks in Portarlington, Indented Head and St Leonards and is the ideal location to base yourself on the Bellarine Peninsula. Located within close proximity of several award-winning wineries, delicious local food producers, and family-friendly activities there is plenty for everyone to enjoy. The Northern Bellarine Coastal trail spans the foreshore from Pt Richards in Portarlington through to St Leonards. Walk, run or cycle along its meandering path that hugs the beach and sand dunes, and takes you across creeks and around a nationally-significant saltmarsh. Portarlington Holiday Park is open all year round and has a range of accommodation options to suit all needs. Enjoy the privacy of a self-contained cabin, park your van on a powered site or just pitch the tent right near the beach. Indented Head and St Leonards provide summer-only, beachside, powered camping sites. ... more   less

“If you are camping in a group try to ask for adjoining sites preferably with the road in the middle of the sites. This will give you extra central area. (Sites are in a Square 2x2)”
