This is such a pretty hideaway- only 25 minutes from Toowoomba CBD and you feel like you have got away from it all. It is peaceful, the 'beach' is a surprising find- provided there has been enough rai... read more »

Great overnight stay with my son. Heaps to although we missed the activities due to arriving late. Maybe some late afternoon activities woukd be good. Kids loved the bird feeding. Massive sites, good amenities albiet probably could do with a few more due to amount people staying and limited showers. Overall great experience, friendly and helpful staff. I will definitely be back.
Great place to go to, a real escape from everything. People where great, went to check in and we where put on a powdered carava ask to swap for unpowered camping spot and they where more then happy to help, the area we had was a big space heaps of room and had some trees to set our swags to. Lots to do there and just a great time.
More shower and toilet facilities required during peak times. Had to wait 30 minutes on 2 occasions for a shower to be available. Didn't help that some families were gaming the system and ferrying up to 6 kids to and from the shower while one parent stayed in the shower. Organised (and paid) activities such as archery was good, however many of these were booked out. There are much better campgrounds in the SEQ region.
We stayed there for 4 nights and noticed that its not as pet friendly as they make it out to be. They have a closed in dog cage with no water and no doggy bags provided, but you must pick up your dogs crap. We searched the creek for a secluded area with no children, we tried to let the dogs off for a run and swim and we quickly informed (yelled at from her house) to leash our dogs and take them to the tiny box they call their off leash area, but we couldnt as it was closed - opening hours of the off leash area (which has grass taller then the dogs and land mines of shit everywhere) are 7am-5pm (only half the day). We also recieved a warning for our dogs barking however, they were barking at the nosey kids walking into and through (next the dogs) our camp site. While we where there it started to rain and we quickly noticed that each campsite flows to the next and you arent allowed redirect the flow to protect your belongings. The beach or oasis as the website portrays is nothing more then a breading ground for toads and aglae. When we arrived we were shocked to find out that we had to pay to have a hot shower, even to have a cold shower we had to pay. 20c = 2mins. However, the office staff, the groundskeeper and the shower blocks were all in top shape :) management on the other hand needs works, couldnt even get a refund for 2 adults that had to cancel because of a family emergency, only $40, pathetic.
We took our two dogs along as the grounds are advertised as pet friendly, definitely not as pet friendly as they advertise. We were walking our dogs through a rocky area where there were small hot algae filled areas of water, certainly not anywhere I would enjoy a shallow dip, we were then yelled at from the house to get our dogs out of the water. I understand that they are not allowed at the beach area only which is fine and we abided by this but I also saw plenty of dogs in the water at the front of the camping grounds where the cliff is. When we decided to do some exploring, we were told that the land belonged to a shire and we would be prosecuted for trespassing if we went back, extremely rude considering we didn't even get a word in and perhaps some signage might help around these areas! We were also charged more upon arrival than what was quoted over the phone. Originally we were asked for full payment which is unusual for camping grounds, eventually they let this go. Aside from this, the campsite we were at Remote 1 was beautiful, great size and view, only problem is that two of the other Remote campsites are very close. Whilst we loved our campsite we wouldn't bother again due to the way we were treated.
