Last visit 2 years ago and the park is still excellent value with great location off the highway and very quiet...Would not stay anywhere else in town.

A very good basic park. $31.50 with TT discount. I find them to be getting over priced especially that it is council owned. Sometimes the TV reception is poor which is probably due to climatic conditions as the 1st day was bad, the 2nd day was good. Would definitely stop again as we don't require the swings and pools .

Lovely location on the Lachlan River. Large treed and grassed sites. Good clean amenities block. We have stayed here three or four times, on overnight stays while travelling on the Newell Highway. It is a little hard to find. You turn off the highway at a Shell service station, then follow the blue caravan park signs round several turns. Eventually you come to another caravan park, a Big 4, which is rather crowded and much more expensive. Go past this and take the next turn to the left to get to the Apex caravan park. Recommended.
