We stayed in a budget cabin,everything was working and clean. It was good value for the price and the staff were very friendly and helpful and we will stay there again. The cabin we stayed in was close to the pool and barbeque area.

We stayed here in September for two nights. We managed to get a little cabin that was just perfect for the two of us adults and one 3 year old for about $85 a night. It was clean, the beds were fairly comfortable, and it had air-conditioning (this last point was my favourite feature!) The staff when we checked in... More

Nice park, usual amenities, clean. No hairdryer in ladies shower block but lovely hot water and good showers. Swimming pool. Scarness not that nice. Can walk to beach but you'd be better to drive and find a nice spot.

Situated on Boatharbour Drive this park is away from the coast and therefore quiter. The sites are tight but help is provided to guide you on. The park is very clean and when booking in the staff are very helpful. The park is centrally located for activities.

This Discovery Caravan Park exceeded our expectations. We booked a Superior Villa and and Economy Cabin and both suited our needs perfectly. The Superior Villa was clean, well kept and a good size.

This park is made so welcoming because of the efforts of the Managers Ian and Jen, really wish though that they had the Internet as promised, this is the second Discovery park we have stayed in that promised teh Internet yet did not deliver.Maybe Discovery should not advertise what they dont have.
