The location of the holiday park is amazing but the cabins are a bit run down. For caravans and tents it is good. Amenities are fine. Short walk to the beach and creek for swimming. 2 general stores as well for takeaway. Short drive to south west rocks for supermatket.

Hat Head itself is a lovely spot. The caravan park depends on this. The facilities are pretty grubby and the staff not overly helpful or friendly. If you can put up with $40 per night shoulder season then it is an OK park. Shame as the area is really good.

Never been to this area before and I found this park to be brilliant, it is isolated from Kempsey the main town and situated right on the beach and on an estuary that on high tide is just gorgeous to swim in. Nestled behind hills and semi protected from wind, the amenities are always Clean and bbq facilities also' I...

We stopped at Hat Head Holiday Park for overnight stay in November 2016. We have a large van and found the caravan site too small. When asked if we could over lap and take the front and rear site, we were told by Management and staff we would have to pay for two sites. As it a large park and...

Dear Sir/Madaam We are sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your stay. We cannot by law allow you to cross two sites. It is against NSW regulations which we must adhere to. As you have stated the park is very large and I am sure we would have happily accommodated you on a larger site. The reason there are separate...

The Hat Head holiday park / campground is spacious with a choice of varying site options. We camped along the river on an unpowered site which meant you only have the bush and river on one side of you creating a feeling of being outdoors. Plenty of birds and visiting kangaroo along the river, plus a friendly pet rabbit hops...

Gr8 place to relax and get back to nature while still having your creature comforts of hot showers and toilets. Kids can run wild and enjoy the outdoors in a safe environment. Easy on the pocket. Would recommend this place to all.

Non-refundable deposit and then day of check in told my tariff has increased for the remainder of the stay! I know they have this in writing, but how can you decide if the new tariff is too expensive or make other arrangements. I asked if I could check out a little later than 10am and was met with little help...

Close to protected, north facing, child friendly beach. River adjacent. Take snorkel and goggles for high tide to see amazing aquatic life. Showers Hot and great pressure, amenities dated and could do with a thorough clean. Sites large and shaded. Best to take majority of supplies as nearby general stores have most things but are super pricey. Also limited stock.

We've been coming to Hat Head over the Christmas holiday period for a long time. This year we visited in March where the crowds have gone and the atmosphere is even more laid back. Out of season the park is also pet friendly. Just a lovely place to visit.
