Can I give a scenario, and hope that someone can say, 'Wait, I know a site you will love!'.
We have a camper trailer, a 11 month old, a 3 year old and a 5 year old... and I am the husband to my wife. The kids like to swim, but .. can't swim. They like the water. We would LOVE to find a place with a pool... We 19kms north of Brisbane, and wouldn't mind travelling for up to 2 hours in any direction (Except east, as that would put is somewhere in the sea on the other side of Moreton Island..
We went to go on a Friday morning, coming back on a Sunday mid afternoon.
We would prefer to have showers.. The pool would be something we'd like, but the sea (white sands would be a must though...).. We have a dog, but not the end of the world if we can't take him..
And that's it!
