Lakeside Tourist Park is more like a resort than a park! With modern facilities and multiple accommodation choices, there is something for everyone. We stayed during peak season, and although at capacity, the park did not feel crowded or busy. It has a great layout with plenty of gardens around sections and sites providing privacy.
From powered and unpowered sites, to deluxe cabins and safari tents, there is something for everyone. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The facilities clean and modern.
The pool area offers two swimming pools, one wood fire heated, in landscaped surrounds. A massage tent offers time out for Mum, in fact one of the best massages I have ever had!
A small playground is perfectly enough, accompanied by 8 spring free trampolines. Yes, you read that right, 8! Our boys practically lived here, and made plenty of friends along the way. During the school holidays, programs including a Scavenger Hunt, Colouring Competition and even a visiting zoo were on offer. We particularly loved the scavenger hunt, which kept us busy for the morning and got us thinking and working together.
Onsite there is a gorgeous small shop. Alongside grocery items, they offer an assortment of chic travel products, at reasonable prices. They were very hard to resist!
During our stay we were able to relax, whilst the boys had fun being kids. There was also plenty of ways to enjoy the park as a family, time at the pool, basketball courts, surrounding grasslands, walks and regular family activities. They even have an ice-cream bike that cuts laps of the park in the evenings, perfect after a warms summers day.
A 5 minute drive into Halls Gap meant that we could venture out for some sightseeing and exploring. Perfect for us on our Lap of Australia. Central to everything, watch out for our next episode in Series 2, Episode 1 – The Grampians. See the clip below.
Halls Gap Lakeside is a great base for a getaway or exploring the Grampians. We highly recommend it.
