Great campground a stone's throw from the Devils Marbles. Yes, it's rural but the facilities are fine, they have a lovely pool area and the food is great too. If you are looking for an alternative to the campground at Devils Marbles, definitely worth a go. Powered and unpowered sites, cabins and bunkhouse. Very friendly and helpful staff. And not expensive when you consider the location. (We paid 3 times as much in Alice Springs Big 4 the following night.) Oh, and they are pet friendly too so your canine or feline travelling companion is most welcome.

We have stayed at this park a few times. This time was a bit disappointed as the cost per night is now $30 which is expensive for this type of park [rural] A couple of the power outlets were out of action, and there was one tap near the few powered sites, lucky we were the only van there. We saw a couple of taps elsewhere but not near the power points . They have changed the name of the hotel at the front to the Devils Marbles Hotel , perhaps this justifies the price increase .
