Quiet park near town. Clean pool. Big sites - some gravel, some grass, some with slabs. Mount Isa is much nicer than expected. Town is good with most services, shops, etc. The surrounding hills and lake are very scenic.

The sites are generous in size but quite dusty and devoid of much grass. Good concrete slabs partly compensate. Currently there are care taker managers in. They have only been here a few days but they are experienced and doing a competent job. Ablution block is interesting. There are 2 ladies and 2 gents all separate and divided by the spacious laundry but all housed in the one block. The dump point is home made (?) creative and a bit agricultural but it works well. Finding a space on the washing line at peak time could be interesting. Midnight laundry shift perhaps?

We had not intended to stay in Mt Isa this trip, but the car played up just as we entered town on the Friday of Rodeo Week, towing our 23ft van. The RACQ attended and confirmed that we could make it to a local van park. My wife rang all but none could help except the Sunset which rang back and said to bring the van in. We gratefully parked between reception and a unit. The place was packed because of the rodeo. We took a week (power and water) for $303, as we were not sure how long repairs to the car might take - reasonable value at this peak time of the peak season. That same afternoon on recommendation of the van park we rang Bears mechanical and they kindly offered to look at the car immediately. The car was back in action an hour later - excellent service and price. We stayed at this van park three years ago. The amenities are good and clean with no waiting, even at peak times. Lighting is sufficient. There is a dump point which we used. The camp kitchen is very good and clean. Some of the sites are a bit dusty, as many are out west, but we were not affected in our special park. You can walk into town in just over twenty minutes. Our repair place was a five minute walk around the corner, a real bonus. The swimming pool was clean and tested daily, and we enjoyed a very refreshing swim. We would highly recommend this park and will certainly stop here again when up this way.
