      Beautiful Caravan Park. We had a lovely Cabin, very clean. Really helpful and friendly staff. I would recommend staying there, they have everything you need and it's all spotlessly clean. Plenty for kids to do and a cute little coffee van for a nice barista coffee in the morning. A little bit of a walk into town, but hey you can just drive ????. Thank you for a lovely stay ????

      My friend and I have just returned from a holiday at Apollo Bay and it was made even more special by our stay at Apollo Bay Pisces. We originally booked 3 nights on a powered site but enjoyed Apollo Bay so much we wanted to extend. Unfortunately couldn't extend on our site and no other sites were available but Tony and the wonderful staff at reception were extremely helpful and we decided on a cabin for the remainder of our holiday. We've stayed at other Big 4 parks before but this one was absolutely the BEST - well maintained/clean and had everything that anyone could want and more. The Coffee Van was great and the Sunday night entertainment at the park was good. Thanks doesn't seem enough for our stay there. I have already recommended this Park to my friends and would love to return someday - you've made our holiday so special.

      We've stayed here a number of times with the kids. It's a great spot, with plenty of facilities to keep the kids entertained. Highly recommend and will be back for more stays in the future.
