Cyclone Debbie has caused a lot of damage in this area. The park has lost a lot of trees. Even the sign into Hydeaway Bay was missing & we finished up at Dingo Beach. After a pleasant 20minute beach detour we found our way back.
Friendly staff, no complaints, staff helped us at the site, staff explained park layout and facilities. Poor value for money $38 for 2A PN, powered, peak season. Amenities are close to most sites, were clean, condition is good, water pressure is good, there was adequate hot water, paper towels/dryer provided, exhaust fans/good ventilation, disabled facilities. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, good night lighting, sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers, very few annex slabs, very few sites are shaded, adequate taps close by. Good laundry, good rec room, good camp kitchen, kiosk, disabled facilities, dump point, book swap available, no wireless internet available., you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Telstra, reception quality was 4. Quiet, open & roomy park, inadequate shade, no permanent/annual vans. Clean wood BBQs are free, congenial bbq area atmosphere, seating provided at bbq. No playground. No pool. Suitable for few days, well maintained park, park is considered suitable for mobility impaired persons.
Liked:- Quiet, roomy, grassy park near a small town but not on the beach. Roz loaned us a photos album showing some of the damage to the park caused by the recent cyclone.
Disliked:- Overpriced, but may be recouping cyclone Debbie damage from patrons. Bore water in amenities with drinking (tank) water on site. Extensive rules encourage you to use park amenities rather than facilities in your van.
Local Information:- Dingo beach is worth a visit.
