Very disappointed, following previous reports. A small sign indicates the entrance to be further up the highway, which is very rough to negotiate. Check in was efficient (done by the cleaner because the owners were somewhere else). Upon their return, they did not bother coming around to greet the campers. We were told to choose our own spot, all being drive through with scraggy trees and bushes separating sites. Roadways in the park are breaking down and potholed and all the sites are dirt. We paid $28.00 per night 2A. One positive was the cleanliness of the amenities, but there was no light in the laundry. The camp kitchen, down the back of the park, is a sink under a roof with cold water only. We didn't waste time checking out the bbq. Very overpriced and very sad to see such potential being neglected.

This is an oldish type of park, but in a unique location, very friendly owners. It was a real pleasure to be there.

Amenities are close to most sites, were clean, condition is very good, water pressure is good, there was adequate hot water. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, sites will accommodate medium to large vans, very few annex slabs, shade to some sites, drive-through sites, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. Basic laundry, basic rec room, no camp kitchen, dump point, wireless internet is available is free, you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Telstra, reception quality was 3. Quiet, open & roomy park, adequate shade, a few permanent/annual vans. Clean UC gas BBQs are free, congenial bbq area atmosphere, bbq area lighting, seating provided at bbq. Basic playground, in average condition. Suitable for a week or more, suitable for families, well maintained park.
Liked:- A no frills park enjoyed the atmosphere park owners had no trouble to stop for a chat and a laugh close to CBD of Coonabarabran and the right price.
