"What an awesome camping ground, right beside the stream (site # 8) I have stayed at many camp grounds, but this would have to be the best as far as up keep of facilities."

"We have stayed at many places around the world and I can say without a doubt your Holiday Park is right up there. It is not based on the size of the park but the values on which you presented on our stay."
