This beautiful campground welcomes you from the moment you arrive. From the friendly face at the counter, along the drive through the well set out grounds, right to the peaceful camp spots. It's hard to believe you are only 800m from the town centre! The camping sites are on hard stands, with a grass area and picnic tables beside each. Shaded by beautiful mature trees, all you can hear are the birds and breeze rustling in the trees, this is camping at its best. The dining area, TV room and kitchen are excellent with all amenities and internet station, or sit outside under the veranda on one of the comfy couches and just soak in the calm atmosphere. Clean and attractive modern ablutions have a disability access and family suite, and the laundry is kept to a high standard. Free gas fired BBQs, a swimming pool and a children's playground (including toys) are available. What this Qualmark 4 star plus camp offers is the chance to enjoy a rural lifestyle experience. Watch the sheep being hand shorn and the dogs at work, guests can also help feed the farm animals each morning and night. Many activities outside of camp too, with the riverside walkway close by, mountain bikes for hire, gold pans and fishing rods. There is a booking agency for local attractions and it_s an ideal base for fishermen. Your friendly hosts are Lynn and Brent Winter. Tent sites are $36 for two, while power sites are $38 for two, or $25 for one.
