Stayed overnight. Small area to park caravans for power but only one water tap so first in first served. We shared with the other caravan who was there. There were other larger sites that had water but no power as boxes were all locked. $20 a night for power and water if you can get it. No toilets but has a dump site.

Manager's name is Pat.
Its ok, but a bit "rustic". Very quiet and we were at the back of the trotting track. We were there for the week of golf vets event. The other park in town was full, so instead of staying 50 k away, we opted for the showground. Pat put all the golfers in the same area and gave us exclusive use of that area, which was nice. Water is first in best dressed, but enough pressure to share with others. We had 6 vans off 2 taps and no problems. There is a Trotting Track here but no early morning horses, which was a bonus.
Very friendly staff, good staff response to complaints. Very good value for money $20 for 2A PN, powered, peak season. Amenities are close to most sites, were dirty, condition is reasonable, water pressure is good, there was adequate hot water. Adequate number of tourist sites, some level sites, poor night lighting, sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers, no sites with annex slabs, no sites are shaded, drive-through sites, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. Dump point, no wireless internet available., you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Telstra, reception quality was 4. Quiet, open & roomy park, inadequate shade, no permanent or annual vans. No BBQs. No playground. No pool. Suitable for a week or more.
Liked:- The big 4 was full, so we tried the showground. Its ok and for $20 p/n you cant really complain. We had been informed there was no water, but water is easily available. Even though 2 taps for 4 vans, the pressure was fine.
Disliked:- The amenities had quite a few bugs, straw and birds inside, but were ok.
