Tacoma, New South Wales, Australia

The first night that we arrived at the Tourist Park it was raining heavily so we ditched our plans of pitching our tent for the next couple of nights and hired a caravan, until the other people joining us arrived.
The Tourist Park had a fully fenced-in salt water swimming pool, a camp kitchen complete with a microwave; fridge; gas barbeques; two toilet blocks with clean toilets, showers, and laundry facilities; and there were also wood barbeques at several locations around the camping area.
If you wish to use the wood barbeques, please check that there are no fire bans in place.
There is also an entertainment building, which has a communal TV, video games, and a table tennis table. At nights videos, of the latest movies, are played within this same building, although it is a little difficult to hear the sound over the noise of the video games. They usually have three videos a day. Two "G Rated" videos early on for adults and kids and then later a more Adult type movie.
At the entrance to the Tourist Park there is a store selling the necessary things like milk, butter, ice, drinks, and also fast food like fish-and-chips and hamburgers.
The tent site was $24 (Australian) per night for two people, with an additional payment of A$7 a night for every additional adult. The tent sites are quite large and ours managed to fit three tents on it. Some of the tent sites are powered, but these do cost more to stay at.
The caravan cost us $59 (Australian) per night for two adults and A$7 a night for every additional adult.
The caravans came complete with six sleeping quarters, one of those is a double bed, facilities for cooking, plates, knives and forks, cups, and pots and pans. No bedding was provided.
There are also cabins available, which cost $99 (Australian) per night for two adults and A$10 a night for every additional adult. The caravans came equipped with TV, microwave, six sleeping quarters, and all the equipment.
