Previous reports cover this park very well. Dog friendly. Good for an overnight stay. Close to town but fairly quiet. Amenities being refurbished (since Mar 2021) but temporary ensuite style amenities clean & functional. Drive thru sites a bit narrow & dusty. Kate the manager is friendly & helpful. Paid $34.20 2A/night powered incl Top park discount. Good meals at nearby Namoi hotel.

A really nice park for a couple of nights. Lovely, friendly managers. And reasonably priced $34.20 PN for 2A powered site after Top Park discount. Park is a bit dusty - send rain this way please. Also there's some work going on over the creek which made sitting outside less pleasant with the noise of trucks, bobcats, etc. Maybe ask for a site over the other side of the park until this work is finished. Narrabri is a neat town with a couple of supermarkets, a few pubs, cafes and most shops you could ask for. Mt Kaputar is nearby and well worth visiting - several walks of varying distances are available.

A really great park! We are campers, but the layout is very well suited to vans driving in and out. Council pool right next door. Staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Camp area is nice and open surrounded by trees. Like many towns out this way Narrabri needs rain; so a little dusty on some sites. Very tidy place. Amenities are older but quite roomy and very clean.
Very friendly staff, no complaints, staff explained park layout and facilities. Good value for money $27 for 2A, unpowered, off-peak season. 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, exhaust fans/good ventilation. 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, drive-through sites, adequate taps close by. Good laundry, good camp kitchen, dump point, wireless internet is available is free, you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Optus, reception quality was 3. Quiet, open & roomy park, adequate shade, no permanent/annual vans. Clean UC BBQs. No playground. No pool. Suitable for a week or more, suitable for families, well maintained park, park is considered kid-safe.
Liked:- Staff are really friendly and helpful. We were just unpowered camping, but they asked us how we found the campground. Narrabri Creek runs just behind the park which even had pelicans in it! Park is very close to town center yet it was quiet and peaceful. Camp Kitchen was being extended whilst we were there.
Parking:- Not a huge amount but adequate; plenty just outside in street if there was a line-up.
Added Touches:- They do a regular sausage sizzle on Wednesday evenings. New feature just added a couple of weeks after we were here; they are starting a doggy-minding service with some dedicated on-site kennels to care for your pup if you want to go out for a meal or same.
Local Information:- Kaputar National Park MUST SEE!, Australia Telescope Compact Array, Piliga, Old Gaol Heritage Museum, Sawn Rocks to name a few things. Narrabri is a really nice town with great people. Excellent nearby Vet and also Kennel out of town that can do doggy day-care when you want to visit a national park.
