The cabin was excellent (superior river-view). Great view. Clean. The surrounds were well cared for and well appointed. Just a shame the cafe was closed on the days we were there.

Our cabin was beautifully furnished and appeared to be brand new. The park was quiet and clean, right on the beautiful waterfront. Facilities were fantastic, particularly the pump track.
