JACOBS WELL TOURIST PARK

Hi,

Has anyone camped at Jacobs Well near the Gold Coast ??? I'm concerned about mosquitoes.

We are looking for something close to Brisbane (about 45-60 mins) but with swimming options.

Thanks.

The whole Gold Coast has mosquitos and midges,if anyone knows a place they don`t exist let us know. Jacobs Well is a small area but very nice.

my folks have stayed at jacobs well for the 2nd xmas running, the midgies and mozzies are only around when there is no breeze, which apparently isnt that often, but whoah, when the winds not there its crazy, i couldnt deal with it

we've stayed in the council run caravan park on the water at broadbeach a heap and there are no insects at all, we did stay in the cooler months during last winter, twice, so not sure if that was the reason for lack of midgies but its a nice park

The Midges are less in winter and you are correct in saying the wind keeps them away,i now apply Listerine ( i buy Aldis it is much cheaper) , you may have to put it on every couple of hours but it seems to work.
