Thanks for your great review Beverley. Shoal Bay Holiday Park is located in a wonderful position within walking distance to many things. We are very busy in peak holiday times due to this .Hope to see you again when it is a little quieter

Told by park admin that this is a "model" caravan park. Maybe it is. ..an old model.
Not well kept. No money spent on maintenance but it has very nice linemarking.
Minal grass, leaking taps. Average cleaning in toilets.

This park has a wonderful location. It is straight across from the beach and one block from restaurants and shops. The camp sites had trees, taps and electricity. Though the grass was sparse. Amenities were clean and there were two sets so there were always spare showers. Children's playground was small but effective and my child loved the games room. This was a very easy park to stay in with a young child and small dog.

The beach across the road was DIVINE.

We stayed here the last week of November 2015 & the park was great + clean. The staff were helpful & friendly. Shoal Bay beach was straight across the road, a 2minute walk & we were dipping into crystal clear clean water for a swim to cool off from the heat. Also close to shops + a 5-10 min drive to Salamanda Bay shops + 10min drive to Anna Bay & Stockton Beach 4WD tours...etc
Great place to stay!
Very happy...

Stayed: November 2015

We return every year twice a year as it our favourite place to stay with our caravan. ( I probably shouldn't be telling you about this best kept secret) Family have stayed in the many cabins available which are clean and self contained. Much better than staying in a hotel or resort. Fabulous reception and grounds staff. Good secure amenities, laundry, play areas and BBQ & kitchen with sails overhead. About 12 different places to eat at your doorstep and the Gamefish Club is excellent value with a stunning view. Helpful Pharmacy. Newsagent opens early. Paddle Board hire. Walk, cycle, swim, or climb the mountain. Nearby at Nelson Bay whale & dolphin watching, boat hire, fishing, horse riding, go-karts, quad bikes on the dunes, shark & ray aquarium, golf, bowls, kayak/canoe, shopping, markets, have a bite at the marina. Boat ramp just beyond the Shoal Bay new jetty. Or just RELAX!

Room Tip: Any site and cabin are good.
