Comfortable, clean, well maintained accommodation, lovely pool to swim in, a covered facility for outdoor cooking. Pleasant, helpful staff, we could not ask for more. Very close to the lovely Lake and a decent Italian restaurant

I booked a cabin in this park on line so I was dubious about the quality of the accommodation without first inspecting the property. I had nothing to worry about as the cabin I booked was spotlessly clean, quiet and comfortable. The grounds are green, tropical and spacious and I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a quiet...

From the helpful, informed reception staff to the fantastic modern bathrooms this campsite is great! Lovely pool and communal cooking/eating area. Tucked right up against the rainforest with myriad noises and birds flitting through the trees. Although we arrived in a downpour, our campsite was not flooded so drainage is clear good. Close enough to town for all amenities and...

We spent two nights at this caravan park. Quick check in and lots of information including maps and brochures available at the main office. The ensuite cabin was very nice and a bargain at 90 aud per night. Very clean and spacious. Nice kitchen and a comfortable sofa as well as table and chairs both inside and outside. Cable TV,...

Stayed here for the first 2 nights of a 3 month road trip and we adored this place. It's really hidden away and is so picturesque it's gorgeous.

Stayed on an ensuite site for 14 nights in august staff were really good always friendly no problem to change dates and extend stay. Park can be squeezy but park will use a tractor to put you on site. Unfortunatly this means tractor noise from early in the morning.

Thank you spook7 for your review of your recent stay at Lake Placid Tourist Park. We are always happy to try to alter guests bookings whenever possible and in the busy winter months it can be quite challenging. Our tractor is invaluable for moving caravans on and off sites in these busy months when space is at a premium. We...

This was one of the cleanest, and friendliest campings we have visited. The camping kitchen is very large, and cleaned very well, daily. Visitors on this camping are all very nice, and it was fun to stay here three days. A bit curious, some hippies camp opposite of the park, just on the street. Though officially not allowed to camp...

Thank you Oli for your feedback on your recent stay at Lake Placid Tourist Park.

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and hope the remainder of...

We had intended to stay for ten days and ended up being in Caravan Park nearly a month as we have family in the region. There is a Cafe with good coffee and food on site, a bonus when visitors come.
