We stayed at this park over the Xmas/New Year period, actually we piked out New year's eve day as our 1yo is not a great sleeper at the best of times, so we thought it might be a more peaceful New Year for us if he was at home.
This was our first camping trip as a family and our first camping trip with our new camping trailer. So I don't have a lot to compare this park with!
For starters it is a huge park (200 sites) people everywhere!! But the amenities were kept clean and usually weirdly enough there were not huge delays for showers... I think in hindsight this was because a lot of the on-site vans actually have their own bathrooms.
Apparently there have been some major reshuffling of the on-site vans in the end of the park we stayed and I think they have done a great job, they have opened up big areas of grass (and it was green which as a Sydneysider is amazing!) which gives the camping a nicer feel. The amenities closest to us were very new, and they have installed a few cabins and group of about 5 I think ensuite sites which are in an area with quite a few shady trees.
The whole park perimeter is fenced and you need a key to access any of the gates, there are boomgates at the entrance operated by a keypad pin number.
There is a covered pool area and kids playground with softfall underneath. We actually didn't use the pool, as we are a bit picky and nothing looks as clean as our pool at home, but that is probably because it was saltwater? But hey we have no probs with the beach LOL! The playground was OK for my 3yo but really not suitable for my 1yo, he tried to fly a couple of times and I ate my heart.
The beach is within earshot and it is patrolled (small area) over the peak holiday periods (I believe). It is a surf beach so again not completely suitable for my under 5's. Great for the 8-12yo's I think as the waves weren't huge (while we were there anyway) but there were lots of kids in that age group having fun with their bodyboards.
And the best bit was the office sold ice-creams, what else could you want?
This was our view to the amenities and just beyond those shrubs is the beach. We thought we were lucky with this open area in such a busy park, but ofcourse it was eventually filled with a huge group and the kids lost their cricket pitch.
And here's a nice shot of my washing, which fell over a zillion times, mental note for next time, peg it down!
