Phone range is a bit hit and miss and TV reception is much the same, otherwise I'd give it a higher rating. Large sites and extremely friendly managers. Its part of a 33000 ac property and has a lot of quite varied habitats so I would recommend the station tour - run by one of the joint owners (new owners since our last stay 3 years ago) who is also manager of the local environment management authority). Sweet bore water suitable for fussy coffee drinkers

Another lovely stay here. We have been 3 times now and I enjoy it more each visit. Dinner was on offer round the campfire, entertainment, licensed bar, good tidy amenities, dump point, pet friendly. Plus the water and poer are ok. Phone reception and TV are a bit hit and miss. Didn't bother us as the night sky view is far more appealing to look at. Will definitely stay again. I think it cost about $30 or so.

This is a pleasant and relaxed place to stay for a few days - out in the bush but with excellent facilities and not too far from town. Managers Dot and Neil are friendly and very helpful. All sites are large and drive through and good efforts are being made to grow shade trees and shrubs between and around sites. Telstra G3 only worked intermittently. The Charleville Library is very helpful for internet access and made no charge for use of our own laptop. Campfire Happy Hour with a licensed bar available is very enjoyable and you can cook your own camp oven dinner or wood fire BBQ there if you wish. From mid May catered camp oven dinners are also available several nights a week. Amenities are modern and spotless and washing machines clean and in good order. Water is good quality bore water, suitable for filling van tanks if you wish. There are good walks for dogs. We would be happy to return.
