      We had a lovely Easter long weekend at Sleepy River. The sites were lovely and shady, and ablutions were clean. Kids had loads of fun up at the pool. We unfortunately had trashy neighbours who fought and swore at each other constantly which spoiled the otherwise perfect weekend. Unfortunately nothing the establishment could do about that though!

      Very freindly staff, everything is clean. It was a bit hard to locate the actual campsite because one can just pick a spot. But no trouble at all. The pool area and the playground could be better maintainedOverall a nice getaway for cradle of humankind
