“Byron Beauty”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

What a lovely caravan/holiday park. Visited Byron Bay in October and was trying to find a caravan park with a bit of character, well Suffolk Beachfront Holiday Park is GREAT. Nicely situated only five minutes from Byron Bay center and right on the beach (no views) towards the southern end of the beach, with less than half a minute stroll to one of the nicest beaches in the area.

This place is only small compared to a lot of caravan parks that I have visited. All staff were very friendly and extremely pleasant and helpful. I originally was going to stay one night, on arrival the park was so nice that I decided to stay 2 nights and then in the afternoon I decided to stay 3 nights. Went to reception to extend, and very happily they extended for the third night, then was pleasantly surprised when they advised me that as I was staying three nights, the third night would be free. :)

The amenity block was very clean during my stay and the park was nice and tidy throughout. This area was very quiet and peaceful and at least half of the sites had some shade cover from the tree canopy.

There is a small supermarket/liquor store at the end of the street which is very convenient. Then there were so many restaurants and cafes only five minutes away in Byron Bay Center.

I did a lot of walking tracks during my stay, with my favorite being the Byron Point Lighthouse track, well worth the visit.

We had another great family holiday at Suffolk enjoying the company of friends and other guests staying at the park. Kid friendly, clean and close to the beach. We'll recommended for a peaceful relaxing place to stay.

We found this place by chance and we loved it. Great beach and beach access. Short walk to a park and some great takeaways and a pub. Most importantly a real nice community feel with lots of respectful campers. We will be back.

Hi Everyone, I'm a single mum of a miss7 & even before the birth of her I've camped here at Suffolk Park. Since Paul n Marie have managed it & subsequent motherhood we r always welcomed, valued & treated beautifully by park management every time. I love it so much that every chance that comes up to camp we head straight to here. Summer winter, rain n shine.
yes there r insects thats because this is Australia!! but if you r a seasoned camper theres nothing to worry about. Paul & Marie r such kind honest gorgeous people who look after this caravan park like its Heavan on Earth. Every bit of information is on the website. For me as a mummy teaching the little person to honor n care for Mother Nature it's the perfect place that reflects this. If you want all night laughing drinking loud shanagins there r plenty of other places around. Suffolk Park is my saving grace, my home away from home. The place where beautiful memories, happiness, peaceful & the sounds of the ocean at night is always there. Thanks Paul & Marie & crew for this slice of Heaven. Love 2 long term loyal Brisbane gals Maria & Lotus Walker xxx

Me and a group offriends were heading to Byron for splendour and it all began horribly when we were told 4 separate prices that seemed to keep getting higher each time. We were told we needed to pay a bond so we did and still have not yet received it but are told they don't ask for bond? So why did I pay an additional hundred dollars ? When trying to explain the matter the receptionist talked down to me and began screaming at me. When we were there we set up our tents on concrete which was extremely uncomfortable at night. We were told every night around 9 to go to bed treating us like children and constantly talking down to us. It was uncomfortable and we ended up paying 500 dollars more then this other campsite we were going to go to and to top it off they were rude and ignorant. Worst trip ever !

As Park Managers we really appreciate Tripadvisor giving us this opportunity to reply. We're very proud of our growing popularity and reputation with young people, families and older travellers. 3 weeks after another fantastic Splendour in the Grass Festival weekend staying in our Park we question this persons version of the facts. Our fees are always available on our website with final costs varying according to exact number of guests staying per night (standard for most holiday parks). When initially booking their sites, 5 weeks before Splendour we were told the number of guests could be 5 - 9 in the group. So we based our quote on maximum number of 9 guests. To secure a reservation we take a holding deposit (not a bond) of $50.00 per site (payment of $100.00 as booked 2 sites) which is deducted off the final payment plus we have a liaison/security fee of $50.00 per site for the three night stay (total $100.00) to cover the extra nightly security patrols we organise for such events. All clearly explained and accepted according to our booking notes upon this reservation. For a Byron beachfront location our rates are very affordable; there is no concrete on the camp sites they stayed on, only on some of our other park sites with concrete pads for caravans, We restrict noise after 10pm as a courtesy to other guests. Most nights this group were at the Festival until well after midnight.

We loved the shady campground, it was a nice escape from the hot hot sun and there was plenty of tent space to choose from when we went! All the facilities were clean and well maintained, plus we loved being so close to the beautiful beach. Suffolk isn't far from a small set of shops and the drive/walk into town doesn't take long. Plenty of wildlife; we saw birds, wallabies and echidnas! Definitely our favourite campsite in Byron so far!

Room Tip: The edge of the grounds, furthest away from the caravans is our fave spot!

Our stay was dampened by little grass to set the tent up on, claims absolute beachfront when your access to the beach is through public car park, bush turkeys are a nuisance climbing over tent and getting into your things all through the night, staff rude when approached about "absolute beachfront advertising" would be a better statement if they said very short walk to beach.
Best they could offer when we said when asked for refund for false advertising was a new campsite.
Dont be fooled by absolute beachfront statement.

Id recommend broken head for its proximity to beach and campgrounds with grass if your looking in that area.

Most naturally formed surf beachfronts feature well vegetated and treed primary dune zones to help protect and limit the threat from serious coastal erosion caused by powerful waves, strong currents and big tides.

The Suffolk camping, caravan and holiday park has operated for over 50 years surviving many extreme storm and sea events due to its natural beachfront buffer. Just look at the recent dramatic loss of caravan park land at Kingscliff to appreciate the importance of maintaining this vital natural beachfront dune protective zone.

We pride ourselves on always striving to offer friendly and helpful customer service to all guests. Claims of perceived staff rudeness arose from our attempts to try and outline the above explanation.

Grass areas in camping grounds are vital for relaxation and children playing. Generally tent floors kill grass so we ask all guests to camp only on worn areas to allow the remaining grass to survive for all guests.

The Park also has its own direct beach track as well as the public access track from the public car park on our northern boundary. (Please see website park map for details).
