Great location and wildlife. Cafe is really nice and museum was amazing!! Not the friendliest staff or fanciest campground The best approach is to just book online and then find a nice site rather than call or book in-person. Perhaps they've had a lot of people abusing the system as all the signage are very defensive and negative . It must be hard work running a campground but more smiles would be nice! Cafe guy was nice :)

Very enjoyable stay here. Staff friendly and helpful . A group of six we needed 3 sites . Good kitchen , ablutions and laundary .all cleaned well daily . We actually used kitchen for a lot of our cooking . Enjoyed curio bay so much we stayed another night doing day trip



Arrived at 6pm to find reception shut and no-one answering phone or email. The online booking was still working, so I just paid up and took a spot. Great location, but the facilities were very basic and not clean... Okay stay, but not really sure what their staff are for.
