It's a shame that such a well located park is allowed to be so run down. The managers who recently left were fantastic to deal with, unfortunately their hands were tied as far as fixing the many "let go" items. New managers in place have no clue, they have no people skills and appear to have never been in this... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We’re concerned you didn’t enjoy your stay, you brought up a good point in that certain areas of the park need work done. We agree and have a process in place to upgrade in the future. As for the saw mill and highway being noisy, I wish there was something... More

An extremely wet and windy weekend, it was lovely to find our site clean and dry. We had 5 members of our family staying in various rooms and we were very happy. All Cabins, rooms and camp sites were clean and well looked after. Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. We will definitely be back.

We're so glad you could make it to The Benalla Festival and hope you enjoyed it. We're happy your Motel room was clean, however we agree it's a little outdated. The inconvenience of the power outage was unfortunate, we would have loved for you to have a late check out. Thanks so much for your review. More

We stayed for two nights recently in the caravan park. Pleasant staff, clean amenities and a lovely camp kitchen. Great pancakes a couple of mornings a week. Quite noisy during the day with the sawmill next door.

I stayed at this park for 2 nights and found it to be quite nice, clean amenities, and very good security with a huge camp kitchen, very friendly staff, and an added bonus (for me) was listening to the trains go past, it was an enjoyable weekend
