The council has spent a lot of money upgrading this park. They have bitumen and cement slabs on some sites which was a nice break from the dust. Some other sites have grass/dust and cement slabs. It costs $28/night for a powered site. The amenities are new and very clean. There is a camp kitchen and a fire pit. There is free bicycle hire, free entry to the town pool and they a have installed 4 corregated shelters that have 2 claw foot baths in each shelter and they offer free artesian baths if you stay here. You need to book a bath but a couple can each have a bath overlooking the bush. The current caretakers are really nice. We really enjoyed seeing the dunnart being fed at the tourist centre it only cost $5 for 2 adults and there is a lot to do at the tourist office. We easily occupied an afternoon in the town. If the sites were bigger, especially wider I would give a higher rating.

A large park. gravel sites with concrete slabs. Some shade. Sue the manager is very helpful. Clean amenities and laundry. Dump point. The community heated swimming pool is across the road. We paid $20. per night as we received the 3 night stay special. Well worth staying for this time. Plenty to see in Julia Creek. We also visited the free camp just outside town. It was packed. They were jammed in nose to tail and side by side. I much preferred the town caravan park.

Very good council park in easy walking distance of town but well off highway so lovely and quiet at all times. This park has been recently refurbished with bitumen roads and many annex slabs. Many sites are drive through so big rigs well catered for. Amenities are roomy and very clean. Water, power and sullage handy to all sites. Mangers are particularly friendly. At $24 p/n for 2A on powered site don't understand why RVers squeeze themselves in out at the free RV friendly park with no power, no water, no amenities.

Stayed there overnight and were shown the spot. Gravel & a slab for the van. Good water pressure and sullage available. Power at each site. As I was travelling solo it cost me $20:00 overnight. The amenities were old but clean and tidy. As this is a council run park and the only one in town it is well maintained. Most people that were there were overnight. I do agree that the roads between Hughenden and Julia Creek are terrible and from Julia Creek westwards are terrible as well. There is two fuel stops and fuel was $159:00 per litre for diesel. Enjoy your stay at Julia Creek. I did.

Excellent stopover park, mainly all gravel with concrete pads. Some small trees providing shade but considering where you are don't expect too much. For a small fee park patrons can use the council pool next door, very handy this time of year. Facilities are old but clean. Cost $22/night powered, good value even with the free camp up the road. Places like this need our support!

A well maintained and tidy park that is close to town with a good clean amenities block. If you stay for 3 nights you will only pay $52. Free WiFi if you ask. Roads from Hughenden to Cloncurry are very poor and there are lots of delays due to road works.

A very clean, tidy and friendly park. A great place for a few days or even overnight. Amenities are not new, but certainly well maintained and looked after. There's a lot of effort going into this park to make it even better for visitors, including free wi-fi paid for by the local Council. There's currently a special on offer - 3 nights for $52 for a powered site - Bargain! The temporary managers here at the moment, Cheryl and Kevin, are really friendly and helpful. They are filling the park nearly every day, in spite of a a very good free camp only a km down the road.
