We have in the past been here many times. The staff R always great no different this time. But the caravan accomodation has gone down the shute. Our first 2 sites allocated were disgusting Mud holes is all you can describe them as. The Ameneties sre old and inadequate for the amount of campers. There is a new block at... More

We stayed on a powered site for 4 nights in September. It was raining for most of that time which we accept is part of caravaning. The problem was that the sites were ridiculously muddy with large pools of water on the site. A little bit of maintenence on the site in the way of gravel or sand would have... More

It's tricky finding economical Accom in The Hunter Valley when travelling with children. Most places expect a two night min stay, and if you stay in a popular time- like Spring- then you need to book a few months in advance. Big 4 Cessnock takes the bite out of Accom costs with a range of budget- semi luxury cabins. Pool,... More

Booked a powered site for a 4 day stay, and have found the park to be good on a number of fronts. Excellent camp kitchen, clean and secure amenities, well laid out park with plenty of activities for children/families, which includes pools, spa, and jumping pillow. Some building works currently being undertaken but this has not interfered with our stay... More

We took our van up to the Hunter Valley and left the kids at home. Staying at the BIG4 Hunter Valley we were greeted by the friendly staff and assigned our site with the flexibility if we saw another we could change. It was a rainy weekend so the park was quiet and we could have a late checkout so... More

Stayed 5 nights. The park is in a central location to visit the wineries and to do the local tours. Facilities were always clean, and they have the best camp kitchen we have ever seen. The pools were very clean too. The grape vines growing throughout the park at a real nice touch. Redevelopment was being done when we were... More

Stayed at Standard Studio Cabin. Booked for two nights through Expedia.com These are images from when I walked into my cabin. I would come back here again. Ideal for anyone that would spend their day outside and to utilise cabins for quite night-in and to use facilities. Very close to the city and towards the wineries!

Active holidays big 4 Cessnock holiday park is well situated to the many wineries of the Hunter Valley, while others most modern park we have visited the facilities were clean and well maintained. Quite odd was the number of new factory built homes and the obvious plans to change this park into a retirement village.

Nice caravan park. Great central location. Amenities were fine. Fantastic eating area - really big, with fire place, pizza oven and heaps of seating... Grapevines separating sites adds a great atmosphere. The only reason I wouldn't rate it as excellent, is that there are no ensuite sites, and this is an option we like to have, and there were not...
