So you are wondering where to stay in Cooktown. That's why you are reading this. Cooktown Holiday Park is a Big4 = big features & big prices. It is beautifully presented & professionally run. Visually, it's like parking your van in someone's tropical back garden. Sites are irregular in pattern but organised and nearly all are fully grassed We paid $48 2A per night. As this is the most I've ever paid, I could do with a few less flowers and a lower tariff. This may be the Cooktown park for you if you have kids to amuse. If you have a short motorhome the "Orchid Caravan Park" could be the answer for you. It's very cramped but in the main street. You can walk to all shops. If value for money is your aim, "Peninsula" is probably the best with spacious sites to rival the Big4 and much cheaper.

Spacious grassy sites with some large shady trees. Nice camp kitchen and pool. Clean amenities ensuite type, unisex. They even smell clean. Basic laundry and plenty of clothes lines. Dump point and fish cleaning facility. Helpful lady at reception. Take a torch at night.

Friendly helpful staff. Nice sheltered tropical setting, with some hedges between sites. No slabs - green grass - unisex ensuite type amenities. Very clean. Poor night lighting and and could do with walkways between the sites around the amenities block. Car washing for $6 well worth it to get rid of the red mud. Interesting town.

Just a quick report to echo the earlier positive comments. This is an excellent park with great facilities. We stayed there in Oct 2013 (in a cabin) and in Sept 2014 (on a huge site). Lots of room, beautiful surrounds and very helpful staff. Highly recommend staying there - we will be going again next year.

This park is a gem. The park is on the small side, but sites are large, and surrounded by tropical trees, green lawns and well tended gardens. Staff are well trained, helpful and friendly, and we welcomed being guided into our site by the groundsman. We had been given some misinformation about a tour that interested us, but the receptionist sorted it all out and gave us good advice about that tour and all the other things we could do in the area. The amenities block is 5 star - a central block with some 14 full ensuite unisex bathrooms. They are well fitted out, have plenty of space, good dry area for clothes while showering. Interestingly everyone seemed willing to mop the room when they were finished showering, so the units were always pleasant to use, and even at peak times there was always one available. A large fish cleaning and car wash area is provided - you pay $6 to use a hose (with excellent water pressure) or $20 for the use of a pressure hose (helpful for travellers coming down from Cape York). It has an excellent camp kitchen, a nice pool with a ramp and handrail. The only thing it lacks is a kids playground, but none of the many families in the park seemed to be bored. Worth the journey to get to it.
