Great site with fab shower block to go with our pitch. We had a wonderful walk to the nearby headland, which was a tough 200m climb but well worth it to see sharks and dolphins feeding below on a shoal of fish.

What a great park. All the guests walked around happy and very friendly.

Was such a nice day I chose to hang my clothes and bedding out rather than use dryers,...

Short stay only with camper trailer. Ensuite was immaculate and large. Friendly staff. Grounds very well kept. Great position near village of Shoal Bay. Very quiet during our stay but it would be quite crowded in peak season. Highly recommended.

Great location and clean amenities. Let staff know exact size of van if it's over 18ft as it can be a tight squeeze for bigger vans. Opposite the beach , has kids playground but no pool. Some staff very friendly.
