Nice place to stay in Port Stephens. Close to Nelsons Bay and local attractions. Very tidy camping areas with one large amenities block. Good security with code accessed boom gates on entry and exit. Recommended for families and grey nomads.

my husband and myself camped for a week in a camping trailer. Being in a wheelchair we asked for an accessible ensuite site and we got B8.

As our daughter and family were camping at the park, we booked a villa. It was perfect for our time at the park. It was well equipped and comfortable. The park is in a perfect location, well set out, well maintained and suits all travellers.
