Great park, friendly owners but a bit on the expensive side for powered sites, particularly during peak. There is a no pets policy during school holidays so pet owners be aware. Hotel almost opposite serves good meals and the local store has great fish and chips.

We recently stayed for 3 nights with 2 camper trailers - we had the 2 sites (88-89) shown in the website picture where the motor home is parked. Site location was great with kids - just walked down the bank to the river - was safe for kids to paddle in but still good enough to fish. Facilities are well...

While we were cooking in the common kitchen in the evening, Electricity was powered off. Reception was closed. It's Unacceptable, also for secure reasons (gas cooking facities). It is an expensive camping, more than several hotel in Sydney.

Often when you pitch a small tent in a caravan park you feel like the leftover; tenters are often relegated to the worst part of the park; small site, weedy, hot, patchy grass at best, limited water access etc. But not here. For the most reasonable price on the GOR yet we had a beautiful large grassy site, water and...

This was our first trip to see the Great Ocean Road and we stayed here for one night during our drive.

We stayed in the cabins. They were tidy, clean, and newly furnished (or well maintained). The staff were friendly and the facilities were good - they're all listed on the campsites website, and from what we used they're all pretty decent and well maintained.

We stayed here for one night on our drive of the GOR. The places are permanent trailers and look a bit shabby from the outside but they have really done them up nicely inside. They were freezing when we first got in but warmed up fairly well. We had three people and fit comfortably although it holds up to 6....

We stayed in 'standard cabin' for a night. The room is a bit different from pictures in website. It was a bit old. I don't know if all the rooms are the same or some of them are newly furnished but just not the room I stayed
