    Park was nearly full and staff allocated a spot which left no room for my car on the site. I was told not to park near cabins and finally was given a parking spot 80 metres from my van. I would book online next time as there were special events on at the time of my stay. Normally there is plenty of space and you can pick your site. Facilities were excellent including a gym, pool, games room, jumping castle (Too late for old farts like me) and mini golf. Showers and toilets were clean etc. Nice surroundings with a lake and walks etc nearby. Park was dog friendly and well away from people without dogs which suited us as you need separate areas for dogs.

    This is one of favourite parks. It has plenty of ensuite sites and they are big bathrooms, good amenities blocks and there is a water park as well as a pool and games room but they are away from the sites so there is minimal noise and disturbance to guests which is a good thing if you prefer the quiet. The sites are of good size and there a plenty of good cabins to chose from. The park is situated by a tidal lake and is a short walk to the break wall and surf beach. Short drive into town where there is good shopping. There a dog section of the park which I am told is going through the process of an upgrade with new sealed roads to be put in. The rest of the park has good sealed roads. Have stayed here many times.

    I took my grandchildren for a weekend before school commenced. The kids had a great time. We played mini golf, swam and picnicked on the waterfront. The kids absolutely loved the big jumping pillow. I was happy to watch. Definitely a great place for kids and so well presented.

    The location is pleasant & the park well appointed but if you have a dog this park is far from pet friendly. If you have a dog you are stuck right down in one corner crammed in with other dog owners & under no circumstances can the dog be walked through the park. I had to walk along the lake & through some heavy bush to get out of the park with my little dog. Not just uncomfortable judging by the discarded bottles not very safe. Rules are spelled out very officiously & there is a $50 cash bond for the pet. Nice park for families but forget this one if you have a pet unless you like being treated like a second class citizen.
