My wife and I were camping. We called up ahead at around 5pm and the managers said they wouldn't be there but told us where to pitch the tent and said they would come over when they could or pay in the morning. That was great customer service! The sites (2 max) were located right next to the bins and entrance to the park. The park is right on the beach! Amenities were dated and reasonably clean

We were waiting for an insurance repair and were stuck in Mackay for a total of 6 weeks. We spend 4 of those weeks here at Bucasia Beach and thoroughly enjoyed it. The amenities are older but spotlesly clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a big park right beside us and the beach right in front. We have 2 dogs and it was great to be able to take them to the park or beach for a big run around without time restrictions as to when they could be off leash. It is not the newest of parks but it is clean and very friendly. If we ever go to Mackaynagain we will certainly return to Bucasia Beachfront Caravan Park.

This is a park we rang for weeks about getting in when we got there the woman I had spoken to told us we where to big for the park . We had been telling her how big we where but people really dont comprehend size of things at all. In all the information we had it said they took big rigs obviuosly not.

Lovely location. Peaceful and lovely little beach. The amenities were quite old, and smelly. Smelled like everything you don't want a toilet/shower block to smell like - I'm sure you're catching my drift!

We were camping, and arrived a little late, so were searching online for nearby caravan parks with tent sites. Despite the website mentioning numerous tent sites, when we arrived there was only 2, 1 of which was already occupied. Site was right next to park entrance.

Overall would not stay again.

Ps. Remember the repellant if you don't want to leave looking like you've got chicken pox!

This place is beyond Belief, reception lady very rude we arrived early and she was not welcoming no information about the park just given a map and pointed in the direction of we're we would be setting up. I think I should make this very clear this is full of residents that are not welcoming and make it very clear they don't like visitors the swimming pool is very dirty old not inviting, the facility's are horrible showers with no doors or curtains and a very distinct 'off' smell in both lady's and gents areas we only stayed one night and that was too long please be advised this definitely is a place to miss, on the plus side the beach is very close. Still in a little shock with how rude the owners are.

Stayed for a week. Paid $40 per night for beachfront site for our van. Paid in advance with no refunds given if you are not happy. No difference from the other cheaper sites, no sullage points. No toilet disposal site. Cracked slabs. Showers/toilets were clean. Staff friendly. Park is pet friendly which is why we stayed..
Pool is very old and dated with no shade. No swings or play equipment. Washing machines very expensive.
Possums run over and pee on van roof at night. All in all....would not stay again. No offence to staff (cleaners do a great job) but the park is over priced and very old with no facilities for young families. No swings. Beach is nice to look at and walk along but you can't swim due to stingers/sharks and crocodiles LOL. North QLD is like that.
If you go...choose cheaper site as there is absolutely no difference to expensive ones.

I enjoyed the view but agree with other reviews regarding park needs updating. Partner stayed here 35 years ago and it remains the same as then ! Out of Mackay but his made the location more peaceful. A lot of permanent occupants. Good pool for a hot day.
