Fabulous spot, quiet, close to Hat Head and others, great evening with a fire pit and firewood, plenty space. Either there’s no fish in the creek, or I’m a poor fisherman (others were catching). Definitely recommend

Our second stay at Windermere over Easter and we loved it! So quiet and peaceful, amazing for the kids to explore, and we got to see the baby cows! The hosts are so friendly and accommodation as well.

The site is exactly what we like in a camp spot. Well mowed grass right on a clean river bank and super quiet away from main roads etc. It was nearly full and the nearest campers were about 40m away. Clearly set up for privacy. Mark came to check in with us and make sure we had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend.

Family Reunion
Great spot, caring and fastidious owners who help where they can. Lovely spot, good proximity to South West Rocks. Peaceful, road noise not a thing. Fresh eggs and pumpkins on sale from the residence as well. Great value firewood delivery! Lots of space for our extended family, good mobile signal which was another bonus... Dogs loved it too!

Peace and tranquility
Highly recommend! Flat, grass paddock on the river with plenty of room and scenery. Parked the caravan next to the river and relaxed for 2 nights. Only noise was the fish jumping out of the water and the occasional cow moo! Would definitely stay again.
