Fantastic location, great helpful staff. Amenities could be cleaner. Good size sites, fitted our big van and 2 cars. Advice - book a site near the water, road noise is bad on the sites near the road. Will be visiting again. Close to everything.

Stayed: May 2014

We have stayed at Broadwater Caravan Park several times now and each time have had an enjoyable experience. The managers go out of their way to put on activities to suit all ages and are very responsive to guests requests. In fact they ask for suggestions of activities from guests. We were there when the Brisbane caravan show was on and owing to several requests they supplied a bus to Brisbane for the day to the caravan show at an extremely reasonable price. They also gave a free pancake breakfast one morning and free aerobics in the pool every Wednesday.

The location on the Broadwater is excellent but I am not sure what will happen when the council re develop the land between he camping area and the Broadwater which will mean the camping area will lose their beachfront.

We have stayed here several times over the last 8 years, from 3 days to 2 months. It has a great location for fishing, walking along the shore, or to the shops. The park is quiet at night. The managers go above & beyond the standard you would expect. In one week they put on Sunday nite get together B.Y.O. drinks but nibbles were supplied, Monday bingo, Tuesday craft, wed pool zumba at 9:30 then a free movie with pizza from a wood fired oven - great night every wed. Sat free pancakes (2 the size of dinner plates ) with ice cream WOW.. or egg & 2 pieces of bacon & sausages, toast, tea & coffie all free what more could you ask for. Great location, Great managers, Great park.

One of the best located parks situated right on the Broadwater foreshore. Stayed on a powered caravan site. Site space sufficient for the normal sized van and 4WD, plus kayaks and bikes.
Good location for watersports, easy access to the waters edge, for instance, for launching kayaks.
Bike and walking paths north to Labrador and south to Southport (shopping centre), all close.
We have visited this park many times and enjoyed it every time. Used both amenities and ensuites on different visits. All clean and in good condition.
Ideal park for any family with children....many seen enjoying the facilities.
It used to be a Top Tourist park, which allowed us a 10% discount as TTP cardholders. Now, no longer a TTP, which can be an issue as the prices are now higher, particularly so during school holidays.....this is the case across the caravan park industry.

You feel very secure, as there is security that walks around late at night. Do wish they have a section where you could have a fire, for toasting marshmallows.. That is the only complaint that I have. The place is well orgainsed, clean and friendly.. We found it enjoyable and will definitely go back again and again.

I loved staying at BW tourist park! We normally stay in a high-rise apartment but booked a cabin because the kids could ride around on their scooters go down the water front and jump on the pillow and we wouldn't have to go out to find entertainment. We loved it more than we could have imagined! The kids had a ball. We loved the cabin, it was clean comfortable and private and had everything we needed and more!
I will be staying here every time we come to the gold coast from now on!!!!!! We might even camp when its hot!
