Bailey Bar Caravan Park – Our Verdict
We spent three nights at Bailey Bar Caravan Park in one of the superior family cabins. We found the room very spacious and perfect for preparing our own meals. I loved the verandah with outdoor table and chairs looking over the park – it was my favourite place to have my breakfast as well as enjoy a glass of wine after a day of sightseeing.
While we had everything we needed in our cabin, I did take the time to check out the various facilities around the park and found them all in great working and clean order.
