The management team here are exceptional, both friendly and helpful. The site we were allocated was large enough for van,car and awning without being crowded. The park is a nice walk to town and is immaculately presented. A very roomy park and even though on the highway is a nice quiet park. The amenities are clean and there is a dump point. We had a very enjoyable week at this park even with the rain. We paid $180 for the week as it was out of school holiday periods, normally $33 per night.

This park is less than 1 km from town and although fronting the highway it was quiet. Internal roads are all sealed and there are lots of grassed areas here. Site size is reasonable and some have concrete slabs for annex. Big rigs are well catered for. Points for power and water were handy. Amenities were clean and there was an onsite dump point. Telstra coverage was fair at 3 bars. This seems a popular park for travelers staying just one night and was almost full by 7pm on the day we stayed so if you plan getting in late you’d be wise to book ahead. Tariff was $33 PN for 2 adults on a powered site.

Acc. Cost 3 nights - $90 (Powered Drive Thru Site). Owners - Helen and Terry. Owned the park for 8 years and were very friendly and helpful. Terry actually guided us on to the best and quietest site available. A very spacious drive-thru site that was well grassed.
