Stayed there for three nights. Bit expensive per night at $36.00 but there was a bit of a discount for Top Tourist patrons. All sites are drive thru and all grassed. No slabs,but well manicured. The park is pet friendly but keep pooch totally under control otherwise some occupiers will complain. No problems with power or water and there is provision for grey water. The amenities were all OK, and at least the shower had a curtain across the front of it. The mens was modern and had good hot water for the long relaxing shower. The laundry was 4 X $1:00 coins and there were those who had a machine built in. Overall I enjoyed the stay in St.George and wouldn't hesitate staying there again.

This is a pleasant, well laid out park, with lots of trees and shrubs at every site. Our site, typically, was big enough that we did not have to disconnect our 17 foot van overnight. The park is a bit far out to walk into town, so not everyone will want to do that, but its possible. Services were close to the site, the modern and well kept amenities not far away from most sites. The camp kitchen and barbecues were popular, and the whole park well maintained. If you visit in late September, beware of a very defensive magpie - it pecked my wife, and one other woman was attacked in the morning. Never the less, we would go back to this pleasant park.

Neat & tidy park with green, mown grass which is a real credit to management in this dry region. Sites are generous size, we have stayed hitched, amenities are very good. Helen at Reception was very pleasant, cost was $ 32.60 after chain discount for 2A on a powered site, and there is a dump point & book exchange. We have stayed at the opposition park before, but this one will get our business in future. DTV gets most channels.

This is like an oasis with grass and trees. A warm welcome but you need to book at weekends. All amenities were very clean and the park, being 2km from town, was very quiet. Top Tourist discount available. One problem - dry grass clippings in the caravan, but it was grass. Recommend Riversand Winery. Mobile and broadband full coverage.
