Excellent spot, great spot to see the stars by the camp fire, gets busy during school holidays though so book early. Showers and toilets on site. Cabins, powered and non-powered sites available and a restaurant with good country style cooking. Flowing river with several great swimming spots, bush treks and canoes available. Plenty of stuff to do for the whole family. Friendly staff and Pet friendly. Speed limit on site is 10ks so good place for the kids to go riding, plenty of space.

Really nice place. We stayed on a river front non powered site for 2 nights and the staff are nice and friendly. How ever I think it's priced a little high compared to other places especially the extra kids you have to add on to your total price.

The place itself was beautiful food amazing. Great facilities. Only Complaint. A very rude and unprofessional lady named Michelle. This lady would be the reason we don't come back. I have never come across someone so unwelcoming a surly in my life she really shouldn't be in hospitality. Would have been 5 star otherwise
