Beautiful location, peaceful, so convenient. Wonderful amenities for families. Lovely and close to everything. Cleaner than a five star hotel. Staff very helpful. All you need to bring is food. Everything else is supplied. I will definitely stay here again

I stayed overnight at the last minute (after hours) on an unpowered site in my van. I had no linen to sleep with for the night as I was just going to rough it. The manager (Hayden) of the park came over to check on how I was settling in. He noticed I had no bedding and without no hesitation... More

Easy to find the park well sign posted. The place was clean and well maintained. Our cabin was spacious with the added luxury of washing machine and dryer. Very comfortable bed and large bathroom. All kitchen requirements needed and BBQ on our porch.

Located next to a busy road this park is fine for a sleep but not a relaxing nature location. Clean and tidy and manager was helpful refunding balance of stay so we could find somewhere else a bit more away from the urban feel.

The photo's do not give the whole story, situation is excellent right on the freeway into Hobart about a 10 min drive, central to getting around. The accomodation was very basic, bedroom incorporated into the lounge dining area, no doors on the wardrobe, toilet and shower was separate. 4 bunk beds were crammed into the space between the bathroom and...

We stayed here at the end of our trip, I would say that the sites are not as spacious as other parks we stayed in but are satisfactory. They have some extra sites down in the visitors car park which are right down next to the road which can be be noisy ( they are building a sound proof fence)... More

So far my family and I are having a great time.. The staff were lovely on arrival and my kids are having a great time as well.. The cabin that we are staying in has all that we need and the shopping centre is about 20-30 mintues away..

Stayed a week in a standard cabin, was an end cabin so nice and quiet, yet still close to BBQ and laundry. Noise from highway did not bother us at all.

Reasonably priced accommodation . Heater was turned on and I was able to check in at ten pm. Didn't even notice it's near the Gaol. Clean, plenty of linen. Would like to see a better size stove. Was able to book online and no fuss or hassles. Will return.
