“Could do better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

Location excellent for views and proximity to town.

But for $125 a night (river view cabin) they could at least provide sheets for the bunk beds.

No wifi.

Not small child friendly - the 60s era ovens were constantly being switched on.

Perfect location - right in town, and on the river with a beaut walking path. Very peaceful. There have been mixed reviews for this place but fortunately for us we only have good things to say. The staff were helpful. The pool was crystal clear and well maintained. The amenities may not be modern but they were clean and that is good enough for us. Also lots of them so never had to queue for a shower etc. Prices are reasonable. Could not ask for anything more.

We spent 4 nights here, great position on the edge of main street and on the river with a terrific walking path along the water edge, thanks to Rotary. We liked the unisex ensuites should be more of them. The park needs a good tidy up and more space for vehicles. Female manager went out of her way to be helpful.

Great location, but our week stay was marred by the rudeness of the man who worked in reception. He was devoid of even basic manners. Everything seemed too much trouble for him.He should not be allowed to deal with customers. The woman was far more approachable but her efforts were not sufficient to negate the poor showing by her male colleague. Also the main facilities in the site appear that they were last updated in the1970s and the swimming pool is only slightly larger than a plunge pool.

I planned to camp out for a couple of nights in Yamba, it was a lovely peaceful spot with some beautiful beach and river front. The caravan park did not have particularly enticing unpowered spots. I ended up in a cabin with kitchenette and shared bathrooms which was fine for my short stay and faced the Clarence river.

We have been coming to the park for years and love the spot. This year we struck several cranky office and security staff. Time to add some modern camp kitchens too. In all the time we have been going to the park not much has been done to upgrade facilities. Great location so please consider investing in upgrades and give your staff a holiday.
