It's a nice quiet park. The beach is good and we found lots of crabs, shell's and a shrimp!! The pool is very small and they don't consider this with how many people they let in.

Lovely place if you like to walk, we took a dog with us and she loved it. Not much to do around the outside of the park. The bar staff were great. The show on Saturday night, was not very good, even though theywere warming up from 5pm. Food was good, which was handy as the pub outside the camp Pheasant & Dog said we could eat there, then after drinks brought and we decided what we would like to eat rudely said no we could not.
