The management of this park were helpful and friendly. We stayed a week and enjoyed the surrounding areas . Obviously the windows in the amenities have been fixed and as previously mentioned there is adequate hot water. The amenities were older but still were very clean. The grounds were well kept. The biggest downside to this park is that some of the sites were quite narrow and would have been difficult to access. All in all we found it good value at $29 per night taking into account the weekly discount and the Big 4 loyalty discount. We will stay again.

Average park that is not up to usual Big 4 standard. Ablutions quite good, average clean. BBQs old and very average clean. Very cold ablutions with the tops of many windows without glass that can't be shut so it its like showering in a shed when it's 0 degrees outside. Lots of hot water so redeemed itself a little! Advertised Broadband wifi very patchy - almost impossible to get emails some of the time. Armidale is awesome place to visit in Autumn - one of the best and unique sights we've seen in all our travels. The tourist bureau has a free 2.5 hour bus trip every day - one of the best we've ever been on - very interesting and run by volunteers with bus provided by Council.
Friendly staff. Good value for money $32 for 2A PN, powered. Paid $28.80, reduced for Big 4 discount. Amenities are close to all sites, were clean, condition is good, water pressure is good, there was adequate hot water. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers, very few annex slabs, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. Wireless internet is available is free, you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Telstra, reception quality was 4. Quiet, open & roomy park, a few permanent/annual vans. Suitable for few days.

Manager's name is Michael & Vicki.
Not your usual bells and whistles BIG 4 but great for grey nomads or anyone wanting a basic place to stay which is close to town and friendly. New managers had gotten rid of the permanents -had a few problems before and are in the process of improving the place. Plans in place for a 25 home gated village at rear of park -first home in place-cost around 230K. Park is close to town. Above ground pool was adequate for our needs.
