This was our 9th year at this caravan park and most definately the last. The last couple of year it has just got worse and worse - I guess it was the friends that kept us going back. The site are grassy and spacious but the 1 ablution is old and in need of a revamp - and not enough for the amount of campers. The programme for december is not worth mentioning. The shop on site is open at erratic times and the management's attitude leaves a lot to be desired. They dont show their faces and are only seen when entering and leaving the park. The only washing machine for the campers is so rusted the lid falls off and you have to be there at 05h00 in the morning to get washing done. The cleaners are never checked up on and on one occasion we had to point out to them that the toilets are dirty and bins in the toilet have not been emptied. (Management never come and check. Old Year's eve there was nothing arranged, we had to arrange our own music / party - is was a poor show There are permanent campers in amongst us holiday makers and they seem to think we are in their way !!!! It was just a disaster from day 1 - their rates are R200 per day for the site and R60 per adult per day which cost us ħR8K for the 3 weeks and we got nothing for it except our site and occasional hot shower !! I think it is time this park in rated and the results published so that people know what they are getting into when booking. Regards LAUREN

Lauren, Ek begryp nie waaroor jou hordes klagtes gaan nie. Ons was presies dieselfde tyd daar en het geensins enige sodanige probleme ondervind nie. Die bestuur was vriendelik en behulpsaam en oom Koos, die algemene opsigter was gedurig opgemerk waar hy beweeg het in die park. Ons het die kleedkamers ook oud maar baie skoon gevind. Met permanente kampeerders het ons goeie kontak gemaak en was hulle werklik nie 'n probleem nie. Ek dink nie jy verstaan hoe die bedryf van 'n kusvakansieoord werk nie want dan sal jy nie die meer permanente inwoners aanval en kritiseer nie. Oorde moet buite seisoen ook inkomste genereer en dit is dan waar die meer permanente kampeerders inpas. Die tariewe is markverwant aan die omgewing en seisoen. Ek dink nie dit is die parkbestuur se verantwoordelikheid om kampeerders te vermaak te alle tye nie en leen die park hom ook nie vir vermaaklikheidsfunksies nie. Waarom het jy nie die inisiatief geneem om dan 'n behoorlike partytjie te organiseer vir oujaar nie. Die kiosk was oop so lank as wat dit ondersteun was. Die enigste probleem wat ons ondervind het was dat die plaaslike munisipaliteit nie genoegsaam waterdruk aan die park kon lewer nie en kan die bestuur geensins geblameer word nie. Ek dink jy is oor krities en gaan moeilik met ander oorde ook tevrede wees. Bly dan liewer tuis voordat jy mense wie moeite doen weer so afransel. Ons kamp landswyd oor 'n periode van 30 jaar en kan nogal genoegsame en waardevolle inligting verstrek. Prairy Park is 'n baie goeie gemiddelde tot beter oord en is aan te beveel veral met inagneming van die rustigheid daar.
