“Good location bad service”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Located right near the beach, and half an hour walk to town. Amenities basic. However we were shocked to find our mobile phone 'confiscated' from where we were charging it in the camp kitchen as this was banned, although there were no signs or previous indication of this. We had $4.00 deducted from our deposit because of charging the phone and the staff member was very unfriendly about it- very unusual.
We noticed two areas in town where caravans can camp for free, maybe that is a better option for some.

This is a quiet park with good access and views of the beach.
However, I feel regular patrons here are given first preferrence to front ocean view sites while tourists such as us who are first timers to this area are put right at the back without a view at all.
The office staff were not very friendly, but amenities were reasonably clean.
No many trees so therefore not much shade for vans in summer.

Tucked away straight across from the water in a pretty, sleepy little town this caravan park served us well. Nice, clean, spacious cabin for 4 (2 ad, 2kids) at a good price. It was quiet, it had everything we needed. Friendly, welcoming reception.

Really enjoyed staying at Kingston Caravan Park. Overlooking the ocean with only a few metres walk to the water. Amenities were very good and clean. We had the added stunning views of a magnificient sunset from our caravan.

Would not recommend this caravan park for families. Very little for kids to do. Playground poor, not allowed to play any ball games. We were put down the back in a sandy spot although grass area available. Pricey for bit of dirt & a shower block. Unable to access toilets/showers for an hour each day for cleaning.

We stayed here one night only. The caravan is located in a beautiful spot and has good BBQ and laundry facilities. In addition to this you can rent DVDs and buy takeaway meals from reception, which was great! Unfortunately though the staff were quite rude and just gave us the impression that we weren't worth their time. We had to hire two sets of bedding both of which appeared to be 30 years old...

We planned to stay 2 nights but ended up staying 3. The rates for the deluxe cabin are very reasonable with a reduction for second and third nights. The park is on the esplanade with a water view. Great spot. Comfortable bed and good heating. Quiet park. Dog friendly.
