Situated close to Geelong city and other beaches, this caravan park has a heated swimming pool, the caravan sites vary in size. The managers are very obliging and the amenities block are dated but are clean.

We recently stayed here for a quick two night stay. Staff were lovely, everyone from the office staff to the maintenance staff. Cabin was great & the kids loved the playgrounds, jumping pillow, go karts & pool. Walking distance to supermarket, KMart & plenty of plenty of places to eat. Short drive into Geelong CBD & waterfront. Highly recommend staying...

Very friendly people. nice swimming pool but no toilets near the pool. Needs more bar-b-que areas. Various cabin prices but I stayed in a mid price cabin which was a bit dated and small. Very noisy fridge which was unplugged at night due to the noise. A car is required to get to the centre of Geelong.

Glad you enjoyed your stay and our facilities. We do have a main amenities block only about 10 meters from our swimming pool. We have a great double bbq alongside our swimming pool and another double bbq area in our camping area, along side our 2nd playground. We are only a short drive to Geelong Waterfront and CBD - approx...

This is a good, simple, clean park. It is in a good location even if travelling the great ocean road. Facilities were clean, good camp kitchen, and clean laundry area. The pool is small but clean and nice and the jumping pillow is great. Two kids play areas are excellent! It is close to a road and if you are...

We stayed here 3 nights on a powered site with our caravan and was right up against a boundary fence with busy roads right on the other side. The road noise was annoying when trying to sleep. The amenities were dated but clean. The park was ok but we will most likely try another park next time in Geelong.

Yes we do have powered sites in our camping area that has Barrabool Rd running behind us, a residential road, and the Barwon River. However over the Summer season, Geelong's busiest time of the year - we do generally expect a little more traffic. In addition to our large main amenities block in the center of our park, we also...

The powered camp sites are at the back with only a fence dividing campers from a main road. The traffic noise was extremely loud and kept us awake all night. I booked for 3 nights and left early after 2 nights, as my family just couldnt stand the noise. It is not peaceful at all. Upon arrival the male at...

I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay. Unfortunately we cannot control outside traffic noise and being that it is right in the middle of Summer, peak period and Geelong is a popular holiday destination - it is definitely expected that there is more traffic around this time of year. We are a family owned and operated business...

We found this park to be very clean and quiet. We stayed 3 nights and didn't hear the traffic noise at all. Lovely clean toilets and showers with security code on entrance door to amenities block. Big clean laundry, with a pool and bbq area. Office staff helpful, polite and friendly. Close to cycle and walking paths which hugged the...

I recently have had the displeasure of dealing with the Barwon River tourist park regarding a cancellation of a booking 2 weeks out from the stay.

Cabin had everything we needed, as two adults we had to decide who used the bunks, I slept in the middle one with no problem, one was too high and the other too low. Great spot near the river and walking distance to a 24hour Coles and KMart.
