Liked:- great area and roomy park. staff were very friendly. excellent value for money. previous reporters complained about unlevel sites, but we had no problems and there were plenty of spare level sites. we did not hear from anyone in the park regards unlevel sites
Disliked:- at peak times (like the elvis festival) the amenities would struggle. only 3 toilet cubicles on the gents, and 5 shower cubicles.

We chose this park because of unfavorable reports on the other CP in Parkes. It was nigh on impossible to find a level site, this meant the slide out on our motor home was thrown out of alignment which has caused us ongoing problems. I can't understand how you could build a caravan park on the slope of a hill. We would never return here.

We have stayed here before and completed the van levelling challenge, but obviously it wasn't bad enough to deter us from returning (to the same site). We chose the grassy area again, which required reversing into; however the other sites are packed gravel on the tiered hillside. Some shade available to some sites. At $26 2A P/N pwred we think this park is excellent value. Welcomed by the very jovial Anne-Marie who provided town info, a laugh and allowed us to select own site. The amenities are modernish, ample in cubicle size (especially the showers) and pristinely clean (as they were last time). Soap, hand towel, long shower curtains, fold down shelf in shower, good pressure, adequate hot water-really like these amenities. The amenities are situated mid park, however due to slope the park is set on could be a bit of an uphill return walk for those at the 'top' end of the park. Good laundry and dump point. No pool. Two camp kitchen areas now, the original smallish kitchen one and a new open air larger one with free BBQs, seating, and a huge satellite TV. Ah TV the only thing that let us down in the park this time. Anne-Marie advised on checkin that they had ongoing issues with getting required Council upgrade to get TV reception in the park. She advised some top sites may achieve a result, but we didn't get a cracker on the grassy knoll that we chose. Liked: Friendly reception, amenities, swipe card access to amenities-two cards issued with no deposit required; short drive to town shops. Disliked: no TV! This cost a point in our rating Extras: excellent variety of town shops; Coles/Woolies/ALDI and specialty stores; Info Centre very good, The Dish still free to visit.
