Had a church camp here. Very well maintained clean place with plenty of beds and bathroom, kitchen, BBQ facilities. You can go for a lake swim near the jetty and go for a peaceful walk just outside the building and there is a big oval across the road for group activities. This is a lovely place and is a place to go back. Big thanks to David who had been flexible and informative to our group.

A massive thank you to David and Denise. With one day notice, they were able to take on a group of 50 and every single one of us had an absolute ball. Communication from David was A+, kept us at ease about the fire nearby. Denise was a gem to deal with and made the check-in as easy as possible. Special mention to Laurie, always helpful and was full of local tips and great advise. Thank you again and look forward to seeing you in the future.

A relaxed and friendly place which encourages you to get out and enjoy the wonderful environment. Going for a walk or a bike ride round the waterfront parks, or having fun doing bearfoot bowling. The Staff are super friendly, polite and very helpful and the place has plenty of space to take small intimate groups or large roudy ones. Check it out you won't regret it.
