We're planning to be there the first two weeks in Jan.

Unimpressed with their new pricing - not so family friendly! We need a "Bring back Brian" and the old Elanda Point campaign!!!!

Those prices are insane!!
Just wondering if after going multiple times every year for 37 years if we have been priced out of going again?
Very dissapointing.

I guess we'll have to see if "the market" accepts the pricing, if it doesn't then the rates will drop. I just went and checked pricing for us to waterfront camp for January 4-13 (9 nights) with the van and it is $594. It was a shade under $400 I thought when we last went just over a year ago.

Two things that we must accept are 1: the previous pricing was not viable, ie the joint was getting run into the ground and the owners couldn't wanted out because presumably they couldn't make a good enough living out of it and didn't have the capital to fix the joint up; and 2: there are all new facilities that now have to be paid for

I just checked Boreen Point campground for the same period and it was $405 for our van. Does Boreen become the next Jeffery's Point or does Elanda have to become an "off peak" option?

Just did Friday to Sunday there with family in the camper trailer. Kids loved it. Had an unpowered site and it was 55 per night and 50 m to the beach. Facilities were good. I think I rather here than Boreen Point.

Did 65 km of sailing Sat afternoon while the kids played at the beach which was very safe.

Loved it! until the storm hit but it was nothing anyway.

Going back in January for a 4 day stay.

The only bloody bad thing was going for a beer at the bar and you could only choose their own craft beer which was absolute crap. (Who wants beer with a splash of mango and passion fruit - FMD)
