We only stayed overnight so did not use any of the facilities apart from Toilet and Shower. They were clean and quite adequate. We had an unpowered site as it was full already at 1:00pm. Nice quiet park, close to the Katherine Hot Springs which are well worth a visit. Would be good for an extended stay. Thought the price was a bit high at $40.00 for two people unpowered.

Normally we stay somewhere else, but unfortunately heavy rains closed some roads in. Very noisy where we were told to park, but we were gone very early next morning. Swimming Pool was pleasant after a hot drive. Just beware of the outdoor seating as they are very brittle. Mostly a seasonal park with lots of permanents.

This park has mainly seasonals who come from the south for the warmth. Katherine Hot Springs attract a lot of people. Sites tight to get into. You can have someone to help you. Unfortunately for us, power was out most of the night and in the morning. Our fridge died all together, so $100 worth of meat and cheeses had to be thrown away. I was not happy. But only came as we were travelling with friends. We would not be interested in coming back.
