We stayed here 12 years ago and were very impressed then. This is an excellent park, very well run with friendly and helpful staff. The amenities are kept spotless and grounds well maintained in spite of the bad drought . Plenty to see and do around the old town with the trout farm worth a visit just for the smoked trout. Quiet and peaceful without TV unless you have a sat.

We hardly ever rate a park as a 5 but this one deserves it because they can't do much better under the circumstances. It's a nice quiet park in a pretty, but small, country town of about 300 people. No digital television is available in Nundle and it will never be. Bring your satellite dish if you're desperate or enjoy not seeing people burn sausages in some boring TV cooking show. The $203 we paid was actually for 8 days including one free day but excluding any chain discount. The park has an unusual dump point. It is not the common blue one that we all know and love. It is black, different in shape and has no hose to rinse the cassette. I hope you have more luck than me getting the cassette empty and clean sans hose first shot. Take the disposable gloves for the 20 metre walk across the grass. Despite the erratic poo-formance I don't think you can do much better for $25.30 per night.
Very friendly staff. Very good value for money $203 for 2A PW, powered. Amenities are close to most 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, disabled facilities. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, good night lighting, sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers, annex slabs to some sites, very few sites are shaded, adequate taps close by. Good camp kitchen, dump point, no wireless internet available., you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Vodaphone, reception quality was 4. Quiet, open & roomy park. Clean UC BBQs are free, congenial bbq area atmosphere, bbq area lighting, seating provided at bbq. No playground. No pool. Suitable for a week or more.
Liked:- You don't pay for the jumping castle and water park. The amenities blocks were always very clean and the hot water was hot.
Parking:- Tons of parking outside reception.
Added Touches:- There is a fire pit near the eating area. There is a fee for the wood and a fire in the pit presents a nice atmosphere. This is one of the few caravan parks where you can easily and quickly walk to the shops, it's one to two hundred metres. There is a public swimming pool across the road from the park.
Local Information:- The pub does nice meals including an excellent steak at moderate prices. The Mount Misery Mine (its a coffee shop) is by far the better of the 2 coffee shops in town.

We visited this park as members of a group in about 30 vans (and a couple of cabins) staying for five nights. The park handled this group with ease, and other travellers were accommodated, mostly away from us. The welcome was warm and helpful, there is plenty of parking to check in, and the tourist office is right at the entrance. The grounds are very tidy, with energetic staff mowing, pruning and generally keeping it in very good condition. The camp kitchen area was small for our numbers, but worked well anyway with a bit of good will. The amenities block was clean and well set out, with good showers, and enough cubicles and showers to handle the size of the park. It is right in the middle of the town, which itself is well away from highways, railways and airport runways, and therefore very quiet and tranquil. There are several craft shops and cafes, a working woollen mill and a small supermarket, hotel etc. We will go back there, as we did not have time for all the drives and walks available.

This caravan park is a little gem. Everything is neat and tidy, including the area for the few permanent residents. It was very quiet during our stay, we had the choice of a slab or a well grassed site. The amenities,camp kitchen and laundry are all in excellent condition and the Bbq area is particularly well set out ( which includes a well constructed fire pit to sit around ). All were spotlessly clean. The Information Centre is within the grounds of the CP, it has an excellent display of rocks and minerals ( you have to check out the " rock spheres " on display. ) A café / general store is opposite the entrance and the pub is a couple of hundred metres walk. Great meals at the pub and a friendly atmosphere. A lot of more fancied caravan parks could do worse than to take a leaf from the owner of this CP. Apparently the owner was brought up in caravan parks as his parents were CP managers. He certainly knows how it should be done. Nundle is a nice little town to relax and look around for a couple of days. We were lucky to score a tour of the workings of the Woollen Mill, very interesting. Would not hesitate to return here.
