Reviewed 8 February 2015

We have just stayed in the camp ground - not the caravan park for four nights. $15 per night for our caravan. The sites are all secluded and quite protected from the wind. Pit toilets are cleaned every morning. You need to take water. There is tank water for drinking but you cannot fill up the caravan tanks with it. Noel, the caretaker keeps an eye on everyone entering and leaving and we felt safe going out and leaving the van each day. I found Noel to be very pleasant and helpful

My husband and I stay at Shallow Inlet Caravan Park often. We both love the area, caravan park, beach (with the most magnificent sun sets), wildlife and the freindliness of the owners and other campers.
There is definitely a family atmosphere, (where you can bring your four legged family members as well), with well kept amenities. We have been there through peak times as well as off peak, and enjoyed the atmosphere every time.
The owners go out of their way at Easter with a huge easter egg hunt for all the children, their excited and happy faces say it all!! This is done totally at the Park owners expense! We have found the owners very aproachable and willing to help with any problem.
We always have a wonderful and relaxing time and after many different caravan parks, have found one that we love and visit often.

As you drive in, this place looks like a scene from the film Deliverance and staying there makes you feel like one of the characters. The word "shoddy" best describes the park grounds, facilities and management. To pitch a tent on a plot smaller than my nature strip set me back over $50 a night. This included the use of a grubby camp kitchen which has a coin-stealing bbq (the only one) in the middle of it ensuring everything else was covered in a layer of grease. The showers worked but were generally manky and weren't cleaned at anytime during our stay. The park is surrounded by bushland and you might hear some wildlife if the people on the next site aren't holding a party with music until 4am while the management do nothing about it. The manager can always be found in front of the television in the camp kitchen swilling beer and making plenty of racket himself late into the night. I'd advise against any questions about refunds as these will be answered by laughter in your face. Other, positive, reviews here are referring to the Bear Gully Camping Grounds, a far superior choice. I give this place one star, and this only for its close proximity to Wilson's Prom. This place ruined our trip to Gippsland, is a rip off and should be avoided like the plague.

Beautiful campgrounds. $15 per caravan per night. Unpowered sites. Gorgeous, large, secluded and leafy sites. No showers. Only facilities are Eco-toilets, that are scrupulously cleaned everyday. They even smell quite pleasant. A couple of minutes walk to the glorious beach. Would get 5 stars if it wasn't for the super-grumpy caretaker - Noel. Nothing made him smile and when one of our group missed the 11am departure time, he was downright rude. Our party of family included toddlers to teenagers and adults and everyone loved this park. Get another job though Noel. You don't love your work.
