Average staff friendliness, no complaints. Poor value for money $38 for 1A, powered, shoulder season. Paid $34.20, reduced for Chain Discount. Amenities are close to only some sites, were clean, condition is very good, water pressure is good, there was adequate hot water, soap provided, paper towels/dryer provided. Adequate number of tourist sites, some unlevel sites, poor night lighting, annex slabs to some sites, shade to some sites, drive-through sites. Good laundry, you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Vodafone, reception quality was 4. Quiet, claustrophobic park, inadequate shade. Good playground, in good condition. Suitable for few days.
Disliked:- Site had two paved wheel tracks but they were on a slight hill and the water had washed away most of the material on the side which meant you had a dangerous slope when getting out of your van. Next door lady took a tumble as the step slid out from under her. Normally stay at City Park thru the roundabout on the right.

A great welcome and very obliging staff. Easy to access site and good park facilities. Appeared more aimed at younger travelers. Overall good facilities. A couple of gripes (see below). Traffic noise from Newell Highway although this did not keep us awake too much.

Liked:- Welcoming staff, basic park layout, easy access to site, good amenities and great bbq facilities in the camp kitchen with all cleaning equipment provided (which people used).
Disliked:- The concrete strips on our drive through site were uneven and had moved - not a big issue but could be tidied up. Biggest problem was a lack of paths to facilities from some areas of park. Always ended up tramping muck into the van as paths to facilities were on other side of where most vans are parked.
Added Touches:- Only overnighting so didn't look into any of these.
Local Information:- No as only overnighting but Dubbo has a number of attractions including the Western Plains Zoo and the Old Dubbo Goal
Road Conditions:- On Newell Highway.

Stayed before. It was a brilliant park a few years ago. The park looks tired and the grass is very sparse and not like lawn as it used to be which means a lot more dirt gets into ablutions etc. Still a nice park but needs grounds maintenance badly
