Located in Richards Bay, KwaZulu-Natal North Coast and the resort is very conveniently situated for that quick weekend getaway, or that very much-deserved annual holiday. Only two hours north of Durban, the beauty of this warm, lush subtropical region with the savannah of the many game reserves and its picturesque surroundings, Richards Bay Caravan Park offers all the amenities for the discerning camper and bird lover. Our camp sites are equipped with electricity, access to water and braai facilities. Ablution facilities are located throughout the park and laundry facilities are available. Beautiful trees offer shade (partial or full) on grassy stands. 24 Hour security provides peace of mind and allows you to relax in the knowledge that the kids are safe. The games room offers entertainment for children along with the TV-room, volleyball, table tennis, bmx course, trampolines, paintball and outdoor chess. The best feature is the direct access to the beach! Richards Bay Caravan Park offers special rates for pensioners and a holiday program during December. Pets are welcome during the year, but unfortunately not in December. Contact our office today to book your next holiday!

Camping Ground is very neat and well looked after but you still experience nature but you still feel safe enough to walk around at night.

Great Bathroom Facilities, Clean and very neat. Great entertainment area, shop and pool. Activities over the Holiday period. The stands all have braai areas access to electricity and are mostly covered by trees ensuring lots of shade.

Close to the beach with a staircase leading you right onto the beachfront.

Very friendly staff

Great value for money.

Stands are well shaded and braais cleaned daily. Lots of fun for every one especially the children. The store was always fully stocked with ice, a huge plus over Desember and January. Security is excellent. Feel safe and even left bakkie unlocked. Your biggest asset is your friendly staff. GREAT PARK!

Nope... Be prepared to pay for activities in Kids Room. Be prepared for all the Vervet Monkeys and Mosquitos... This is not mentioned when you book. Also note that you have to drive to the beach. Nice and clean campsite with clean bathrooms.

Dear guest, activities in the playroom such as the play station darts and table tennis requires a refundable deposit in order to ensure the equipment is returned. The only activity requiring payment is the pool table and the fee is R2 per round. If this was not what you experienced, please get in touch with management. We hope to see you again soon.

Michelle was great. The first stand allocated to us did not have shade, options were provided, we had an absolutely great experience, even close to nature in town and would certainly return. Birding was great with the Purple-crested Turaco, Greenbuls and the Red-capped Robin-Chat entertaining us. In the evening we were privileged to see the Bushbabies.

The kids loved the facilities.

I can recommend Richards Bay Caravan Park. The park is shady, nice and clean. I enjoyed the birds and monkeys. The stands are fairly priced. Michelle is the best. I would return any time. Pity that the tag can't open the gate to the lodge from the sea side.

We spent a couple nights camping at Richard's Bay Caravan Park. It cost 110 Rand per person per night and there was a 100 Rand deposit (which you get back upon departure) if you wanted the beach access key. The campsites had electricity and the ablutions were clean. The washing area was great, and there was direct access to the beach.

The staff were very friendly and there was a small shop and game room on site which was convenient. Overall we had a great, peaceful stay.

We were staying in Richardsbay caravan park over DEC 2014. Our campsite was close to the permanent campers, they stopped their boats and cars on our campsite, and when we asked them to be moved, the atmosphere suddenly changed. We were no longer greeted by the Manager, everybody that was permanent campers ignored us. We went to speak to the manager, who denied everything. The next door logde's washing gets done at the camping laundramat and one rarely has a chance to do you own laundry. Our braai was NEVER cleaned in 2 weeks. We had very loud neighbours (students) who where loud until 02:30 in the morning, we complained about this, and yet again we got the cold shoulder, while the manager were very friendly towards the trouble makers, these same students mocked us when they drove by, and would turn up the music as loud as possible. The mens bathroom was dirty at times, the same could not be said about the womans bathroom, which was always clean. We will surely not stay there again, clearly its about who knows who, and not about new customers. Unfortunately this was my parent first real camping experience, and it was a bad one.

This unfortunate incident was discussed in detail with our customer. The students, other campers mentioned were all contacted and promised to visit our park as always. We will do our utmost to prevent bad relationships in the future and invite the client to visit our beautiful park again.

We arrive late and we have to pass 2 gates go get in, want to go down to the beach and you face another gate with security there.
We would like to have a coffee in the morning but the shop/bar didnt open until late (dispite time showing 7 am opening).
We wish to get into a ballpaint game but tod that" we need to book one day in advance, today is very busy, sorry we could not help you".

Very unfriendy and unwelcoming people at reception: instead th epeople working around the camp (guards, cleaners, gardeneers et) are fantastic...

Very disappointing. I would not recommend this park or Richards Bay. There seems to be no rules at all, children still playing in the playground at 11pm. Stands are extremely small and over-crowded at times more than 8 people where are on a stand.
