Our accommodation of choice while staying at Mount Gambier was the BIG4 Blue Lake Holiday Park. Located only 2km from the city centre, it sits snugly between the famous Blue Lake and Valley Lake.
The staff were absolutely lovely, willing to chat and have a laugh. From the moment we walked in, we got a great vibe. We had a feeling that we were going to be comfortable and have an enjoyable time.
Facilities include toilets, hot showers and laundries, as well as a kiosk, tennis court, games room, swimming pool, playground with jumping pillow. You have the option of cabins, powered or unpowered sites, and dog-friendly sites.
We chose an unpowered site at the back of the park with close access to BBQ and camp kitchen facilities, toilets and showers, a coin-operated laundry with clothes lines and a tap. All the amenities were functional and clean, and the park was covered with thick, soft grass.
We’d like to say a big thank you to the lovely ladies at reception for letting us borrow a power point overnight so that we could charge our new jump-start kit, and for letting us stay a few hours after checkout time so that we could work on getting the truck started after a wiring issue.
