We spent 3 nights here at the end of a 5 month caravan trip. During those months we stayed at lots of parks across 4 states and this one was the friendliest and most relaxed. This was mostly due to new managers, Tony and Jo and the lovely inclusive atmosphere they provide. The park is perched right on the banks of the Murray River which is great and provides 180 degree water views to most vans. There are 2 pontoons to access the river so it’s easy to fish or swim or whatever you like. And there’s no jumping pillow (we were happy with that). A lovely bush setting and great facilities, we will definitely go back to this park.

We had the most wonderful stay at this small but friendly Park. The managers Dan and Victoria were lovely and very helpful. We were only going to stay for 5 nights, but enjoyed it so much that we stayed another 6 nights. The Tuesday scones in the camp kitchen were a yummy bonus. To be able to watch the riverboats going through the Locks from the Park was wonderful. We will be back.

What a great park this is, so peaceful. The owners Dan and his wife can not do enough for you. The shower,and toilet block is so clean, and the water, lovely and hot. My husband fished, I sat and enjoyed watching and listening to all the birds. So many pelicans come up the river in the evening. This is a lovely well kept small park, we will return

Hi Alana, You've stayed with us 3 times in just the last month. That to us is a sign that you have been very happy with your stay, the facilities and us both as managers, as I've had quite a lot of interaction with you. On your first visit with us as managers, we allowed your group to stay well past the checkout time of 10am, til late in the afternoon just because we could see how.much you were enjoying the park with the kids. You told me then how spa cabin 11 was almost like your other home, you ask for it every time, it's your favourite. So when you called us again the next week and asked if it was available that night, I told you that I would make sure it ready for you within an hour. All was fine, and we offered a late checkout. You seemed in good spirits the next dayI as you checked out, told us you'd had a great night but for some reason the spa didn't want to work when you tried to use it a second time that night. I was disappointed for you as as spa is the treat, so told you that I would investigate, and if it had obviously broken down, then I would give you a call and we would have to arrange something to make it up to you when you next stay. You were happy with that and I very shortly after went and tested the spa, and found it to be working as normal. There was no indication why it might have stopped and I hadn't had any other problems whatsoever, so not being a spa expert and knowing that sometimes these things can happen, I told Dan that the next time you book a spa cabin, we would upgrade you to the executive cabin if it was available. Then again within only a week or two, your group wanted to book in last.minute for just the one night Easter Monday. We managed to get you onto the site that was requested, then Dan shuffled them so the two sites could be together, and still close to the riverfront and camp kitchen. And when you mentioned that the spa had stopped working the time , he incredibly comped your site for that night, something that I can guarantee you, does not happen anywhere else- Easter is our biggest weekend, and he let you stay entirely for free. I am still picking my jaw up off the floor Being in such a small park, we LOVE that we can get to.know our guests and find ways to make sure they can really enjoy their time here. My favourite thing is watching our visitors completely unwind and fall in love with just the how simple and serene it is here. So you can imagine my absolute shock and how upset I was as i was told about how while in the camp kitchen communal area, your partner abused a woman verbally, with foul language, for asking him to not swear and carry on so loudly. When another guest stepped in, he was also abused and threatened your partner was also heard walking away from that situation talking loudly about stabbing, now, I was BLUNT when I came directly from that conversation to you, to tell you to pack you bags and leave, that is not welcome ever in this park, and I was horrified. Leave.which you did, without any problems. Or so I thought until from within my office o could hear angry yelling on the road. I went to the front, and saw him yelling at you, which actually made me begin to walk towards you, I wanted to be sure that you were okay, and thought my presence might quiet him down. Having not actually witnessed the events the night before, I did have a tiny worry of doubting I'd done the right thing. Until your partner began abusing me, calling my very name under the sun, telling me how much he wanted to punch me in thw head, literally his face inches from mine and then, he spat on me. You dragged him away, and I returned to the park where a few guests whod heard it all, came to make sure I was okay. And then told me how uncomfortable and unpleasant his presence made them feel. So, with ALL the facts now You had used that spa previously, knew its pressure etc and I know it never hurt your back in those times. In fact, if it hurt your back, why try to use it again that night? And, just to point out how very unlikely your story is, spas operate jets of water pressure.. not suction. I think any soreness you feel, was not caused by our spa. You also didn't mention that to anyone when you came for your 3rd stay, certqinly not when you checked in and made a point to tell Dan that it hadn't operated when you tried to start it again, and only now you are saying it caused an injury False? False accusations against businesses are becoming quite the legal issue. I'm also quite surprised that me saying "pack your sh.. and get out now", was the height of rudeness, that you felt that you've had to try go above me to speak with the owner, then tell me how awful things were in an email, and then again here on tripadvisor. Considering how your partner spoke to so many people, and just in general, I am finding it very hard to believe you are offended by the words I said. Also, you are blacklisted from our park, and whether I'm here or not, that will stay. I actually was a bit sad myself as I had enjoyed having you here, and after your email, I wondered whether I should try calling to se if we could talk it out, whether you should be considered separately to your partner. Unfortunately your repeated attempts to throw as much mud on me as possible.. yeah no, blacklist sticks.
