Fantastic trip away at Surfers Paradise amenities where basic but fully functional and the campsite was nice and flat to set up the van and awning. The beach is a 2 minute walk and offers surfing and body boarding for all levels. Would highly recommend this to any beach bums or van lifers

Massively over sold camping field. No marked out pitches which is great, but can mean you struggle to find a spot to pitch because they cram far too many people into the fields.The location is great for Croyde beach.Overall, avoid this campsite and Ruda. Support a locally owned campsite, there are loads of great ones in the area.

I was attacked by a rat, why can't a dog drive away the rats. My dog attacks every squeak…

This is the loveliest campsite . I’ve been staying there for about 20 years. It’s so close to the dunes and the beach and the rest of Ruda’s facilities are close by if needed. There’s a really laidback vibe and everyone’s pleasant. The toilet and shower block were great . I’ll happily visit again this summer holiday and every summer I can in the future
