Well..How lucky was that........
Avis ,,Bailie & I (YEP...THERE WAS ROOM FOR ME..LOL)......went for a ride up there just yesterday to have a look for our selves.

1/..The lady in the shop although was nice gave the impression that she really didn't want to be there.
2/..Was told $9-00 per adult. (could be worse)
3/..Lots of ''hoons'' in boats & jet ski's
4/..Very dry.....even after all the rain we have had...was most surprised
5/..Alge present & lots of weed floating in the water
6/..Fishing is not to hot at present (bummer)
7/..Snakes are in higher numbers than normal (thats this kiwi outta here..)
8/..BAD YEAR FOR PARALASIS TICKS....thats us and bailie out of there!!!! (we had a picnic lunch..then off) :(

Sorry Poodle but it didn't rate to high with us...We are either going to book in to Tweed Heads (river retreat...not cheap but good) again..or maybe head back to Imbil where we always enjoy

I have about 5 weeks of A/noon shift..so no weekend working which means we want to get away as often as we can. :beer

Cheers

Thanks Rosco will give it a miss some of the reviews were only 2/3 days old and said it was filthy.

Do you think it was the water they were meaning was filthy ???...I mentioned that I also wasn't impressed with the water quality
If they meant the camping area...then they may have been a bit hard on them.....wasn't to bad.

Certainly one we were dissapointed to have taken off our list.

I always go to this one but don't camp in the CP....but rather down by the shoreline.

I do have to say it is over 12 months since I was there and it is always better during the week.....no jet skis etc....much quieter all round.

You can use the showers in the CP and there are toilets there too....pretty basic though.
