The thermal pools are the big attraction at this park and are very good, 4 medium size hot pools with 2 of these new and the other 2 to be redone over the coming summer, and 1 newish large cooler pool. The park itself though is really showing its age with tired old amenities with small showers and the hot water systems in our amenity block produced barely warm water. Many sites are small, the north sites were we were all are so skinny that if adjoining sites are occupied then awnings from one van end up just inches from the next van. There are also only 2 rubbish bins in the entire very large park, which is really unacceptable. We paid $30 per night for 2 adults on a powered site. My rating would have been higher if only rating the pools, but the rest of the park bought the mark down.

Friendly staff. Clean amenities. Great pools. Park was quite full when we were there. Some sites very tight. Paid $30.00 per night powered after chain discount. Management has opened another caravan park 1 km closer into town. Sites there are $17.00 per night powered. Booking forboth parks are done through Gwydir Carapark. They only have one pool there a 25mt. Pool is the same hot water and pool has been recently refurbished. New park is a work in progress. You can use the pools at both caravan parks.

Friendly and efficient staff. $32.00 per night 2 adults powered. A large park with a mixture of long stay, short stay and over nighters. Obviously the hot thermal pools are a big draw card for those with aches and pains. Very busy in southern winter but the numbers staying there do not seem as many due to the large area the Park occupies. I phone an hour or two out to check on site availability. All amenities and services are clean. Alternative Park is Mehi which is small and fills quickly. Road works have made it necessary to change the entry point to Gwydir Park so if approaching from the south the entry is further along the Highway so "SLOW DOWN" and watch for signs. My stays here have ranged from 4 days to overnight and I keep coming back.

Average staff friendliness, no complaints. Reasonable value for money $30 for 1A, powered, shoulder season. Amenities are close to most sites, were clean, condition is good, water pressure is good, there was adequate hot water, paper towels/dryer provided. Adequate number of tourist sites, some level sites, good night lighting, very few annex slabs, very few sites are shaded, drive-through sites, hard to negotiate into site. Basic laundry, you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Vodafone, reception quality was 4. Noisy, claustrophobic park, inadequate shade. Suitable for few days, suitable for families, well maintained park.
Liked:- Due to park being near full as I have a small van I was put onto a site that was not level. As I pulled in there were another 4 vans in the cue.
Disliked:- Very crowed - thermal pools popular. Preferred Mehi park. Because it was so crowded it was very noisy, lots of cars driving about. Reception very "business like".

This park is cheap and cheerful, with the major value added of four hot pools and one large cold water one. We have been going for some years now, but did not get there in 2015. The major additions since our last stay are a much needed new office with more space, and an extra area with larger powered sites than most of the very narrow existing ones. We thought it would be quieter in April than the popular winter time, but had not reckoned on arriving on the Thursday before Anzac weekend and did not know they had a large group of travelling golfers! Checking in was a bit slow, but in very trusting style the receptionists asked us to come back later to pay! We did - $200 for a powered site for seven nights. Amenities blocks are busy but generally well kept, but in one of them the lights went out several times in the week, so we either took a torch or headed for another block. The pools are well set up and popular, but because they are large we were able to use the ones we selected each time. Unlike most parks, they have a wash bay for cars and caravans, another bonus - especially as fruit bats love the tress around the park and tend to be messy if you park under one of them. Grassed areas, gardens trees etc are all well maintained, and the dump point that I complained about in an earlier post has been upgraded and is much more pleasant to use.

Friendly staff, no complaints, staff explained park layout and facilities. Good value for money.

Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, good night lighting, sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers, annex slabs to some sites, shade to some sites, ensuite sites available, drive-through sites, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. Good laundry, no rec room, kiosk, disabled facilities, car wash, dump point, you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Telstra, reception quality was 4.

Liked:- Good Kiosk/Take Away with meals provided daily.
Disliked:- The park was very crowded in the winter months and the sites are very narrow with annex nearly touching next door van. Most of the noise is from the park workers driving around in their quad bikes/golf carts with no regard for the speed they are going.

Have never stayed here at this time of year before. Park was just about empty. $29 p/n 2A after chain discount. The amenities were clean. BBQ clean. The pools left a bit to be desired. Whilst there they were not cleaned. The 2 cooler pools had a lot of dirt on the bottom of them. There were also weeds in the pool paving and in the gardens. It may have been that we were very early in the season, as on all our prior visits the pools and surrounding area have been very well maintained.

$28.80 2A P/N pwrd with Family Parks discount. We were allocated a site in an island section between the cabins. Double concrete slab (which wasn't level) partially shaded and easy to reverse into. Lots of room in the front to leave car and annex had slab. Our van on site was max 1m from annex of site next door. We thought this was ok, as we had a bit of grass space the other side. Alas then we noticed we were site 'a' and the grass section 3x3m's between two trees was actually another site 'b'. Thankfully 'b' wasn't used during our time-don't know how it would have been accessed noting trees front and back. Other sections of park were drive thru gravel-very close together also, and grassy section not being used. Noisy, claustrophobic park-and it wasn't peak period. Park is situated next to airport, some light aircraft noise encountered by definitely tolerable. Gardeners and cabin cleaners zooming around on quad bikes and golf buggies much more constant and noisy. Not speed regulated, they were a constant-unless gardener was using leaf vacuum or mower. Thermal pools were the draw card and the highlight, various temps available and amenities near to them were very clean. Main amenities block central to our section and drive thru section was struggling to cope with the amount of patrons during our stay, so could not imagine winter crowd being well catered for. Amenities were old, average cleanliness with soap provided. TV reception was dodgy-easily tuned in then heaps of intermittent interference. Airport?? Not good for the cricket! Optus and Telstra internet and mobile reception good. Dump point available, large laundry with antique dryers not that they were required in 36 deg heat. Tidy park-with gardener always on the go showing great results. 2 industrial bins only for rubbish-one at entry to park, one on western side. We didn't mind this, and understand management rationale that this keeps potential pong/vermin down. Extras: Takeaway cafe onsite-we didn't use but prices were reasonable.

This a very busy park, most likely due to the popularity of the 4 thermal pools on site. We were in the Western section of the park. After a walk around the park, for us, this was by far the best section,but each to their own. Sites were still quite well grassed considering the lack of recent rainfall in the area. Amenities in our section were clean and maintained, but struggled a little due to the numbers. A very enjoyable stay and would choose here again without hesitation, but as mentioned, it is very busy. At night though,it was very quiet and peaceful. Very impressed with the Main Street and shopping area, very well presented and a good feel to it.

The park has grown again with new sites and the Motel at the entrance is now complete and very popular I am told. As always there are a great many vans settled in, but the organisation & general maintenance is good. $31 p.n., or $190 p.w. is reasonable value.

Park was quite busy but at least van sites were marked, on last visit sites were not well defined. Lots of sites very small in width but quite long. Most vans were able to have their awnings out. Amenities were clean as was the BBQ area. Staff friendly and explained park but no tourist info. $27.90 after chain discount per night powered 2 adults. The hot pools were lovely and well maintained. A few extra skip bins around the park would be great. Only on at front of park and another at the rear.

We only wanted one night, to experience the thermal pools. We were given a long narrow site so we could stayed hitched and it was fine for overnight but would not like to stay longer than that. As others have said, it is quite a crowded park, very large, amenities could be better, and only having industrial skips at the front of the park for rubbish is not good. The thermal pools are very good though and a soothing soak is very worth while. We paid $31 for one night so overall it was good value for money. We did find it very noisy though with cars in and out all night (shift workers maybe). We probably will not go back.
