$27 for 2A. Sites will accommodate medium to large vans.
Liked:- The green grass around the camping ground, was a nice surprise.
Parking:- Drive over the cattle grid & look for the reception sign. Several vans can be pulled up behind each other, or next to each other, though it could get confusing trying to get to your spot if it is back the way you came in.
Road Conditions:- Reasonable roads all the way to Boulia

Manager's name is Darren & Booee.
This Caravan Park is right on the river at Boulia. Nice green grass which was a change form the dust and dirt of the previous few day. We were put on a drive through site which was great. Here there is no EFTPOS so cash only was told there is ATM at pub and you can get cash out at post office.
Friendly staff, no complaints, staff helped us at the site, staff explained park layout and facilities. Reasonable value for money $29.00 for 2A PN, powered. Amenities are close to most sites, were clean, condition is good, water pressure is good, there was adequate hot water, soap provided. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, good night lighting, sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers, very few annex slabs, shade to some sites, drive-through sites, adequate sullage close by. Quiet, open & roomy park, adequate shade. Suitable for a week or more, well maintained park.

Big open basic park beside highway although very quiet, particularly at night. Water and power handy and there are some slabs. However best part is all the lovely green grass. Amenities are old but clean. Plenty of room for big rigs.

Extremely busy park with most only staying overnight. Staff were friendly and showed you to your site. Paid $27pn 2a which was reasonable. Sites were fairly level with a mixture of grass and dirt. Power and water available. No tv except for satellite. Amenities were reasonable but hot water can be in short supply after a busy day. Laundry facilities adequate. Short walk to town. Suitable for overnight stay.

This can be a relatively busy caravan park in the cooler months. The park is a good place to have a overnight rest, catch up with some washing, have a shower and top up the water tanks.

Liked:- It was far enough out of town to be quiet, although Boulia isn't a rowdy town, and close enough to walk to the pub if you want to walk. All the amenities were in good condition and clean. There is good water.
Local Information:- Boulia is a true outback town. There is a great display at the Min Min Encounter & Boulia Information Centre and it will go some way to explain the fascinating phenomenon of the Min Min Lights. Boulia hosts the Boulia Camel Races in July. The Stone House is one of the original buildings in the area. The building has been listed by the National Trust as a building of interest. In the yard of the Stone House Museum are a number of machinery and wagons, which were used in the region around the turn of the century. Much of the history of the region is displayed in the Stone House, as well as Aboriginal artefacts and photographs relating to the Pitta Pitta tribe.
Road Conditions:- The roads from the north, east and south are all in pretty good condition and are all bitumen. The Plenty and Donohue Highways from the west are dirt and remote.
