Get your self a copy of the Victoria Cabin, Caravan, and Camping Guide which is available from Parks Victoria for free; or go to their website and look at the parks in the area (see the link below).
Re the specific parks, there are eight with a pool in the High Country, and seven of those have a playground as well.
Painters Island Caravan Park - Wangaratta
Wangaratta CaravanPark - Wangarata
Bright Pine Valley Tourist Park - Bright
Bright & Districts Caravan Park - Bright
Porepunkah Bridge Caravan Park - Porepunkah
Porepunkah Mill Holiday Park - Porepunkah
Porepunkah Pines Tourist Resort - Porepunkah
There are another eleven parks if you want to go to Lake Eildon and surrounds.

Blue Gums at eildon sounds good.

Blue Gums is great out of town 4ks, river near by for a fish, it runs abit quick for young ones to swim but I think it has a pool. Stayed there when the big fire hit and they were great with 4 hourl updates which some feel safe and other rushing off to check their properties. Eildon has a good pub, with good meals, plenty of shops for the wives to brouse as well.
Fishing for trout in the pondage can be good at times. There is a tackle shop and bait.
The trips towards jamieson are great and around the banks of the dam are good tracks as well - best to get a map of the district, and book early!!!!

Harrietville, at the foot of Mt Hotham, is a bewdy. I don't think there's a pool but a cool mountain stream passes thru. Heaps of open, grassy areas or powered sites. Fantastic day trip to Dargo and back via Omeo from there. Good pub a short walk away. Make that excellent pub! Bright and Porepunkah get a bit crowded. For a more natural experience, Lake Catani atop Mt Buffalo itself has a fantastic campground (rivals Wilsons Prom in my books). Lake nearby for swimming and canoeing.

Bright/porepunkah has good parks for families.
Waterford/dargo caravan park is good, on the river
Omeo Cp isnt bad but no pool
