If Koruna is the northerly Camping Cheques site it is probably too far and too hilly for children to cycle. Just take the van and park there - secure and plenty of room.
We stayed for 5-6 hours and I think I paid about 48 Kuna (about £6). There is a bus from the site but its 20kuna each (for adults anyway) so for 2 people not much difference. The problem with the bus is it leaves at 9am and doesn't return until 5pm which would have been much too long for us.
We started at entrance 2, caught the internal bus to the top (south end) and then did the full tour round quite comfortably to return at around 2:30 to 3pm. I would have thought that unless your children are very young the full tour is quite manageable for them providing the weather is OK. Beware though that Croatia can get very hot (like 38degrees) in July/August.
Whatever you do, don't miss the Rastoke at Slunj, just up the road. Well worth visiting, even if it meant a 50 mile detour. Apart from a small entrance charge to the actual Rastoke, the main views are free and its as impressive as Plitvice in its own way.
Also, as this is a Croatia thread, if you have the time, visit Bosnia. We spent 6 days visiting Blagaj, Mostar and Sarajevo but I would happily have explored much further into the country had we had more time. It just needs a bit more research compared to Croatia.
