Big 4 Welcome Stranger Caravan Park – Ballarat Review

May 20, 2013 | By | Add a Comment

Torrential rain did little to dissuade us from embarking on a long weekend trip to Ballarat. Our destination was The Big 4 Welcome Stranger Caravan Park on Scotts Parade. Arriving at the park between bouts of rain we were greeted by a friendly and accommodating staff who promptly showed us to our unpowered site which was basically a grassed area near an older style play ground.

The rain had caused havoc to this area of the camp ground and as such we were immediately upgraded (without asking) to a superior nearby powered site. The site was compact but importantly it was drier than the unpowered site and we didn’t have to pay any extra. Within record time our Customline Camper Trailer was set up, including the awning, just in time for the next lot of torrential rain.

As the skies cleared, we took the time to explore the facilities. Being the parent of three “fish” our first stop were the swimming pools. There are two pools, one is outdoor and is free for guests to use while the second is a heated indoor pool which needs to be booked and paid for. Eventhough it was raining and bleak this was not enough to deter my “fish” from swimming in the outdoor pool.

Once after I was able to drag them from the pool we continued our exploration of the camp ground and found the obligatory jumping pillow and modern playground both of which were a hit with the kids. Other facilities nearby included a bitumen paved tennis court and 18 hole mini golf course (which requires a fee to be paid to use). After we had tired with the jumping pillow and the next bout of rain was coming we sought refuge in the games room where we were able to play a quick game of air hockey.

Throughout the park there are a number of amenities blocks, the block which serviced our camp site was built in the 1970s and in original but clean condition. Other amenity blocks within the park are more modern so it may when booking a site pay to ask for a site serviced by the more modern facilities. A number of camp kitchens and undercover BBQ facilities are also available and these are modern and the BBQs clean and easy to use.

The park has a reported 65 powered sites, 25 unpowered sites, 4 ensuite
sites, and a mix of studio, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom self contained cabins.

The park is within easy driving distance of the major sites of Ballarat including Sovereign Hill, The Eureka Centre, and Kryal Castle (And no we didn’t visit).

While not being the best Big 4 caravan park I have stayed in the facilities offered by The Welcome Stranger Caravan Park are comfortable, clean but in some areas dated.
