A very pretty place to camp. $36 per night. A pleasant reception and cafe area. Meals are expensive and small. Drinks expensive also. The fish and chip shack provides a good meal for 2 at $27. Telstra wifi only at café area. No power to sites. Some water taps but you should boil the water prior to drinking. After check in you have to find your site. The map they give you is totally inaccurate. Most sites are not identified or laid out. We fortunately were allocated a clearly labelled site. It just wasn't were they said it was. The ladies at reception are not interested when you try to explain how inaccurate their map is. The amenities are third world. Leaking or blocked toilets. Corroded showers that barely function. Low water pressure and hot some times run cold or not at all. They use a Donkey boiler to heat the shower water. A very pretty and interesting place to visit. Also the Lawn Hill national park 9 K down the road. Plenty to see and some good walks.

Lovely spot from which to visit Boodjamulla Nat Park or the Riversleigh fossil site. Most sites in the top campground have their own fireplace and are well separated from each other.
Friendly staff, no complaints, staff explained park layout and facilities. Good value for money $36 for 2A PN, unpowered, peak season. Amenities are close to only some sites, cleanliness was average, condition is good, water pressure is bad / Variable pressure experienced, there was inadequate hot water. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers, no sites with annex slabs, shade to most sites. Quiet, open & roomy park, adequate shade, no permanent/annual vans. Suitable for few days, suitable for families.

Adequate number of tourist sites, some level sites, poor night lighting, sites will accommodate small to medium vans, no sites with annex slabs, shade to most sites, hard to negotiate into site, adequate sullage close by. Basic laundry, kiosk, dump point, no wireless internet available., mobile wireless not available. Noisy, adequate shade, no permanent/annual vans. Suitable for few days.
Disliked:- We stayed in the Grove as the rest of the park was closed. There are no sites marked out and you park where you can find a suitable spot. The whole area is looking tired and needs some cleaning up.
Road Conditions:- Coming from Burketown the road is bitumen to the MMG Mine turnoff.
