We were here last year "stuck down the back". This time we opted for a site near the pool, which last time was milky but this time was clear and clean. The two women at reception could not have been friendlier or helpful. Pay for 3 stay for 4, which made it $35 PN. The amenities here were much cleaner than what I recalled and reported for the ones at the rear. This park boasts that it's the shadiest park in Katherine, and it is well worth the shade in the NT heat this time of year. 2 km to town which we easily did on our eBikes for shopping. Hint: for THE best large chicken dumplings, head into the shopping centre where Woolies is, using the highway entrance, and immediately inside on the right is a cafe. Yummo!!

We asked for a site that was not dusty, to which the receptionist's comment was something like, everything's dusty up here. So, we got a bare, dusty site along the rear fence. At least we were given two adjacent sites so we could unhitch the trailer, but in heavy periods, this would not be the case. There are a few amenity blocks scattered about. We only used one which I found needed a good clean into corners etc. One shower cubicle had the latch broken, but the cubicles remained dry during showering. Small laundry, washing machines $4, did a good wash. Entry gate at the rear conveniently leads to the hot springs below the park. We went to use the park's pool one day and found it milky - no thanks. I informed the receptionist of the pool's condition. A plus for the park is the abundance of landscaped shade, which did somewhat stop the daytime heat from getting worse. It is a budget park. We paid $45 for a powered site. Unpowered are $40.
