PostSubject: tin Can Bay Top Tourist Park   Sat Jan 02, 2010 6:07 am

Well after picking up our new van early in 2008 we were
itching to
take it out somewhere. As there had been a lot of rain up north we
decided against going to 1770 as it was possible the roads were
flooded. So for a change we thought we'd head south and as the recent
rains had scared a lot of the tourists away Tin Can Bay was our
preferred choice.
Firstly the park. It's rated 3.5 stars and I personally believe it
deserves every one of them … even the half! The owners are also the
managers which is handy and they are both very helpful in answering
any of your queries. At one stage Ian (the male portion of the
partnership) saw me having difficulty with the TV set up so he came
over to help. Quite nice really!

We'd booked an ensuite site which was only $3 more per day than a
powered site ($25/day vs. $28/ day), and this was well worth it in my
view. We've stayed at parks with ensuite sites before but these were
the best we've seen so far. The main reason we liked them was the
size. There was ample storage/ cupboard space which make this park
ideal for stays of one week or more. It's also great to use as a
lockup for large items such as bikes too. Our site was large enough
to
fit our 18 foot rig and the concrete annexe pad was a decent size.
There was also enough room to park our 4wd well out off the road area
but still next to the van.

As well as the ensuite site this park also has TV cables running for
the ensuite to your van. All cables seemed long enough to reach the
biggest of vans and when it looked like mine wouldn't reach Ian came
over and showed me 'how it's done'. Considering I hadn't asked him
and
he saw me looking confused (an increasingly common look for me now-a-
days!) it was to his credit that he came over to offer assistance
when
he could just as easily not worried.

My only complaint would be that the park's roads have concrete
guttering and as the roads are fairly narrow it can be a nuisance when
reversing your van into a tight spot. You tend to 'bouce' a little
over the edge of the road.

Tin Can Bay itself has a few coffee shops, the odd restaurant, a
fresh
fish market (not big but handy), dolphin feeding, a skate park and a
decent IGA store.


We've been back approx. 6 times since our initial visit and love it every time we return.
