“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 19 February 2013

We stayed in a beautyful 2 bedroom cabin. Cooking equipment etc was fantastic. The kids loved the pool, jumping pillow, pet animals and ducks on site. The only problem was that the wifi signal was not very strong where we were, so skype was hard to use in the cabin. This could probably have been solved if we had taken our device closer to the transmitter. We would definately stay there again and reccommend to others.

Room Tip: Get the deluxe cabin.

It is a beautiful location, we had a site directly at the river. It was a little bit cold in the morning but nice view.
We heard nothing from the traffic although the street was close to the campground.
The facilities were clean . All in all a good place to stay.
We would stay again.

The place was lovely and tidy. A beautiful location right next to the river. A little noisy due to the road on opposite side of the river but all in all, a pleasant place to stay. I would stay here again.

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay, and got to enjoy the beautiful river. Unfortunately sometimes there is a bit of noise from the road but not to often.

We stayed in the family cabin overnight. A quick stay after a wedding. Great location overlooking the river. Simple accommodation but we chose the cheapest - they have a variety of options for all price ranges. Very quiet - we slept until almost 10 as there wasn't the usual early morning noise of the camping ground. The only thing was the light coming through the door. A simple curtain or blind would sort that out.
Would definitely recommend.

Kids loved the playground, swimming pool and riding in the carts. Great location on the river. Very relaxing place to visit. Also got some great advice on fun free things to do in and own of town. The rope swing 5km further along the road on the river entertained the kids for hours!

Always good to hear about happy children and it is great being the closest park to the fun on the rope swing..its always worth a go if you are kayaking from there with us.

Loved this place, cannot say enough about it. Beautifully clean and the perfect size to let your kids roam without fearing they will get lost. We stayed in one of the Deluxe Cabins and it was the best of both worlds - camping environment for the kids but a bit of luxury for us. On the day we left the boys cried...asked if we could please stay one more night!

Room Tip: Can't go past the Deluxe Cabins...you get what you pay for!

We helpful service in particular with sorting out an error on my part with the booking. We stayed in the deluxe motel unit which was very nice. Very upmarket and clean and tidy. My only complaint is that there was no oven. Lovely kitchen but only a microwave and hobb. Also it could have done with one more comfortable chair. It was decked out for 5 people but only 3 could sit comfortably on the sofa and then you had to sit on the dining room chairs. Definately no complaints otherwise. Would suit someone who went out to dine more. This was our second stay an would stay again.

We will be pleased to welcome you back anytime and are happy you enjoyed our park. We always take on board feedback about our amenities in the units and if you visit us again in summer just ask us for a charcoal BBQ if you want to try some outside dining. :)
