Lamberts Bay Caravan Park
Although I did not stay at Elands Bay Caravan Park I did take a drive through to go and have a look and am going to include it in this post as I have found out that both parks have the same contact person and telephone numbers and are therefore connected.
Lets start with the Lamberts Bay park. I had been warned by quite a few fellow caravanner’s to avoid this park as it is not good and judged on value for money has to rank up there with the worst I have stayed at thus far. They charged me R100.00 per night and to be honest if it had not been that I wanted to spend a few days exploring Lamberts Bay itself I would have moved on after 1 night.
One of the major selling points is that the park is right next to the sea but as you can see there is no way you can get to it!! Surely there must be keys, that they could take a deposit for, so that patrons could go for a walk on the beach?
Overall I thought the park was pretty poor considering what they were charging. If I had been paying R60.00 a night I would not have felt so ripped off.
Onto Elands Bay Caravan Park. As I said both parks fall under the same management and it shows. I did not stay here and personally never would but I did read some comments on the internet by someone who did. “Terrible camp-site – neglected – poor maintenance” and from what I saw he was spot on. The writer did also say that the site had great potential and I felt the same about the whole of Elands Bay.
I agree that there is huge potential both for the caravan park and for Elands Bay in general and from some of the things I was told there will hopefully be some major changes in the near future. Just by the way I found another small caravan park about 4 km’s from Elands Bay that is great and charges the same price per night, R100.00, with a private ablution block. I will write a post on that soon.
