$40 for a piece of dusty dirt is a rip-off. We did not stay here last year because of that but this year we timed our trip between Katherine and Kununurra wrong so there was no alternative at that time of day. The only shade in the rare piece of level ground was not near the water tap and power outlet so we just used our onboard water. Give this one a miss. Oh, fuel is the dearest by far along this stretch. $2.60 diesel when all other places were under $2.45.

One of the best roadhouse caravan park stops that we've experienced. Situated in a very scenic location with fantastic walking trails nearby. Management are friendly & helpful. Campground is very informal & dusty with limited shade. Amenities are adequate & clean with soap provided. Meals are well priced & very tasty. $15 per person per night on a powered site, water has a slight sulphur odour but is still fine. If you enjoy nature based activities we recommend staying two nights.

Van sites are not delineated nor are internal roads. For a powered site you pay your money and pick a power post. Even early in the dry season the whole place was dusty. The location between Katherine and Kununurra or Lake Argyle is convenient. The amenities block is very tired and quite old. It does not look immaculate. No soap, dryer or towels. No dump point, playground, rec. room or kitchen. The laundry is basic.
Average staff friendliness, staff explained park layout and facilities. Reasonable value for money $30 for 2A PN, powered. Amenities are close to only some sites, cleanliness was average, condition is reasonable. Adequate number of tourist sites, some unlevel sites, poor night lighting, sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers, no sites with annex slabs, very few sites are shaded, drive-through sites, poor water quality, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. Poor laundry, no rec room, no camp kitchen, kiosk, no wireless internet available., mobile wireless not available. Quiet, open & roomy park, inadequate shade, no permanent/annual vans. No BBQs. No playground. No pool. Suitable for overnighter.
Liked:- The view at sunset and (probably) sunrise.
Added Touches:- Food at the roadhouse was reasonably priced and of an acceptable standard.
