Off the Newell, this is a good overnighter. We paid $30.60 with Family Parks discount. (note that the price hasn't change in three years!) Most sites are drive through on grass, which the managers are trying to keep green. Amenities were very clean, with a good camp kitchen. There could be better night lighting, especially at the spoon gutters. It is an easy walk to the town for essential shopping.

Been here for 1 1/2 days. No complaints. Our hosts were extremely friendly and welcomed myself and the two dogs. A very spacious concrete sight. Water pressure was excellent,plenty of pressure. Sullage pit for waste water right behind the van and it had a lid on it as well. No drama on power either. It cost me $64.80 for the two nights,which included the Family Parks discount. The amenities block was clean and safe. No shower curtain in the showers but a big area for you to shower. Overall I was very impressed with the park and wouldn't hesitate in staying here again down the track

This park is managed by Southern Cross Parks and is a member of the Family Parks group. It is close to the town centre, but in a relatively quiet location overlooking Narrabri Creek, and not on the Newell Highway. Notwithstanding that the park slopes downhill from its street frontage to the creek at the rear, the sites are terraced and reasonably level. Some sites have slabs, others have gravel or a grassed. There are a few good shade trees in the park, but not all sites are shaded. The amenities block is old, but is clean and tidy. Access to both toilet and shower cubicles was relatively easy, although they are not exactly spacious. Soap dispensers and paper towels were provided near each wash basin. Each shower recess had a bench you could in fact sit on, and the change area remained dry even though there were no shower curtains. There were several large washers and dryers in the laundry, with drying lines just outside. There were adequate taps close to each site, and sullage drains also. It appeared as if the power points had recently been renewed with metal blocks incorporating plumbing for taps, but the water part was not in use. I asked for a site that was close to the amenities, but was allocated one about 50 metres distant. I asked if I could changes sites for my second night, and my request was granted, so I moved to a site about 15 metres from the amenities. The tariff was $30 per night for one adult on a powered site. I paid $27 on account of the Family Parks discount. I consider the park suitable for a couple of nights, and it is marginally suitable for mobility impaired persons, provided you have a site reasonably close to the amenities block. There were a few long terms residents. The number of sites was adequate. There is parking outside the office when you check in and 2 or 3 vans could line up without spilling out onto the street. I used Telstra internet wifi and reception was 5 bars. Nomadnet is available on payment of the applicable fee.

Liked:- All drive through sites and within walking distance to town.
Disliked:- It is located on a busy road, though off the highway. Semis and trucks use this road a lot, so very noisy.
Parking:- At the front of the office.
Local Information:- Mt Kaputar is great if you like to bush walk. Lots of look outs and walks. There is about 6kms of dirt road once you enter the N.P. and then it is sealed to almost the summit. The road is very narrow and windy. Sawn Rocks is spectacular.
Road Conditions:- Road good, small shoulders.
