New Management - not good! was a great park before but no longer. Arrived to find confirmed site bookings were 'lost or dates wrong'. Sites unprepared and not 'habitable' and no help from management to rectify this. Amenities not cleaned for entire 6 days of our stay, running out of toilet paper, dirty and smelly by the end when we gave up and left our holiday early. Pool not cleaned the entire stay, started as milky then green on last day - management (male) said not to swim in it if you didn't like it! Dog friendly park (we had ours - on leash and pick up poos etc). Except Management let their own dog and strays wander freely through the park pooing and entering sites looking for foodscraps. Following this example other campers are letting dogs wander off lead through the park, dogs swimming in pool and dog also in shower block. Gross! We are repeat visitors but will never return under this management team. Location is lovely if you can overlook the rest.
