The sand flies are really bad here.
The park is a very simple park. There are many trees through out the park. It sits opposite the boat ramp and marine rescue. There are 5 nice cabins to hire. The park only has one small amenities block and laundry, not close to most sites, it would not cope in busy times, but generally the park is not busy even at Christmas although the boat ramp is very busy then. To cope with Christmas they seem to hire porta loos situated near the other sites which are away from amenities. Interestingly there are no clothes lines! There is s very basic play ground in the middle of the park and no pool or games room. There is an under cover BBQ area with picnic tables. There are only a few concrete annex slabs, most sites are worn grass and dirt. The unpowered section had better grass. The roads are generally roughly sealed. The park is in walking distance to the boat ramp, safe swimming area and small picnic ground. The park could do with a bit of a face lift and wouldn't take much to get it up to a better standard.
