We love this campsite!! We are halfway through our stay and it's one of the nicest campsites we have stayed at. The amenities are very clean, the campsites are huge and it's lovely and quiet! Our children are entertained by riding their bikes and the TV room so we get a break. It's a stone throw away from all of...

This park has lots of permanent residents and many short stay areas. It is well shaded & paved, pool, camp kitchen TV room near entrance. It is a Top Tourist Park. Some sites are parallel with the main road and there is some traffic noise & light reflection from street lights but so very convenient to a lot of shops,...

Staff were rude. Don't go there if you expect anything decent. We got a cabin and I wanted to go somewhere else but seeing as we were only there for a night on our way over to Fraser it wasn't worth it. Cabin smelled. Small and old. Fridge was leaking as it had been turned off and had melted the...

We are devastated to hear of this. It almost doesn't sound like our park. We supply linen to all our cabins and cabins are cleaned to a very high standard daily and pre checked before you arrive. We have recently replaced all our cabin fridges. If you wish to speak with us please don't hestitate to phone.

The room was very clean and the bed comfortable however keep in mind that if an adult is sleeping in one of the bunk beds, the mattress isn't suitable. They are very thin and designed for children only. Also keep in mind that there is no regular oven, just microwave. The utensils are basic so if you have something at...

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...

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.
