“Lovely location, friendly management, great place!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

This is a lovely place to stay and a great location. We were close to the caves and on the route to cradle mountain. We had a little pitch next to the creek (where we even saw a platypus). Great to be able to have a camp fire as well and there is firewood available on site.

The lady running the site was really helpful and came back to check we were happy once set up. Overall a great stay!

Lovely little bubbling brook, showers old but clean but only 1 toilet in the females. Camp kitchen is really a basic shed, no hot water, did what we needed it to just. Avoid during a school camp. Other then that the site was beautiful, we had a fire with free wood and saw a platypus in the creek both days we were there

Thanks for your review & feedback. Yes, the hot water does take quite a time to get to the kitchen at the moment. It's usually quicker to boil water for washing up in the electric jug provided. Glad that you managed to enjoy a camp fire & see the platypus.

Great park, well run, reasonably priced and even has the occasional platypus in the creek running through. We used it as a base for Cradle Mountain trips but found a whole lot more in the area from the caves to wildlife. Thanks Jill.

It was lovely to find a caravan park with a little creek running behind the sites. Admittedly the toilet and showers are in need of updating, and my shower was not as hot as I like it, but the location and friendly laid back host made up for that. Also prices were very reasonable, and we weren't charged extra for kids on an unpowered site. The caretaker also had good suggestions about where to park our car to keep the wind off our tent.

Have just returned home from enjoying our annual camping trip to the Mole Creek Caravan Park. The most delightful setting with the most friendly host. The Park is well run and has everything you need, including fire wood. Three platypus were sighted while we were here which added to the excitement of the trip. Couldn't ask for anything more!

We anticipated a lovely caravan park after reading the rave reviews and arrived at a flat 100 by 20m block of land with no owner present. The 'free' firewood is long damp and mostly useless kindling. I didnt bother having a shower as it COST money! No reveption for tv or internet either!

This is the 4th time we have been to the Mole Creek Caravan Park, stayed for 8 nights, parked the caravan by the Sassafras creek which runs through the park, what a lovely peaceful setting, and finally saw the platypus in the Creek. Washing machine & clothes dryer could do with updating, but overall pretty good $25 a night for powered site, showers 60 cents for 6 minutes, $2 load of washing which is good if the washing machine will wash & spin (I had to wring the water out by hand) it was ok last time we stayed, dryer is not so good $1 for only 10 minutes, which is fine if you can get washing dry on the line & only need to air it. A bit of updating of equipment & amenities block & this would be a perfect country escape. The owner is away for 6 months & she has a caretaker looking after the place for her, he does have a tendency to go missing!!! Some of the caravaners that arrived during our stay were not happy as they could not get keys to shower block or laundry this happened twice during this stay & the day we arrived 11.50 a.m. We didn't get to see him until the next day?? Seriously if your the caretaker stay there for your customers, not sure what the owner would think of this, it's a pity because the park is great when run correctly.

Thanks for sharing your experiences at the caravan park. We really appreciate feedback. So glad you managed to see a platypus & enjoy the restful atmosphere by the creek. Sorry your experience with the washing machine wasn't so good this time but hopefully the problem is now fixed. We hope to see you again sometime for your 5th visit!
