We loved staying here. Park was very clean and stunning view of the river. Kids had so much to do and they loved the skate/scooter park. The cabin was clean and it was a nice quiet spot to spend a few days at. Cabin was nice but the only thing was the cabin needed a bit of TLC in the way of paint off the cupboard in the kitchen and the back door was broken. Other then that it was stunningly beautiful place to stay. Will definitely be back. Only about 13 mins from Forster as well.
