This is a lovely spot to stay and is very quite. The people operating the park are very friendly. The sites can accommodate larger vans and they are adding 8 more powered sites. There is a camp kitchen but no BBQ is provided. There is a very small pool and an outside fire pit but it was not in use while we stayed here. They open a bar at 4.30pm and encourage guests to socialise in the bar and play pool. Bar prices are reasonable. There is no dump point so you drive to the airport to empty toilets. This park is 6km out of town. It is $25/powered site

Agree with other reports. Now $25 per night powered. Pick a site and pay at Happy Hour. My only dislike is I would like a bench in the showers.

Having read the reports on this park, I have to agree with all that has been said, and have spoken to Mario about the night lights and extending grass up level with the concrete, which he will look at.
