So this will be our last trip away until February. School holidays start soon and so does the Christmas & New Year festivities making summer camping a very popular pastime. It also makes for a very crowded and noisy pastime.
Based on some popular reviews on Google and also from Facebook Glamping Groups we decided to give Percys Place a go. Situated on the Hawkesbury River at Pitt Town about 2 hours away the river is well known for the "Bridge to Bridge" water ski classic that runs from Brooklyn on the Central Coast to Wisemens Ferry in the west.
We originally only booked 2 week nights but decided at the last minute to take an extra day on Saturday as the weather forecast predicted showers later in the weekend and we wanted to make the most of it.
The photos from the website gave you a choice of maybe 30 campsites all with river frontages and some with beach frontages. We took a beach front so Claire could have access to the water and we could watch her from the van.
When we arrived we had 12 visitors camped either side of us. The only other sites booked in the park. All on top of one another. A mixture of adults and young children. Fortunately the sites were huge and naturally we had all opted for a beach frontage.
