We stayed in a cabin in this park and it was terrible. $120 for one room with a curtain separating the toilet, hand basin and shower. The hand basin was so small you could only put 2-3 fingers under the tap. The 21 ‘TV was on the wall beside the bed and the cords run down the wall to the bed. The bar fridge only froze food. The owner had gone AWOL and left a singer to be the admin and cook, and her husband as the tour guide and maintenance man. On our second night the bed collapsed while we were sitting on it to watch TV. My husband put it back together but there were two screws missing from each end. When we told the people when we were leaving they said ‘oh we have a new bed out the back.’ Would not recommend this park to anyone. We only stayed there because the parks and motels were full. We wanted to visit the age of dinasours, which we enjoyed.

We had to stay at this park as the rest were booked out. Just lets say it was a place to stop and that's all. The site we were given was half a mud pool. Sorry not a good park.
Average staff friendliness, bad staff response to complaints. Poor value for money $30.00 for 2A PN, powered. Amenities are close to only some sites, were dirty, condition is poor, water pressure is good, soap provided. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, poor night lighting, sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers, shade to some sites, drive-through sites, hard to negotiate into site, adequate taps close by. Quiet, claustrophobic park, adequate shade. Dirty pool. Suitable for overnighter.

Typical dusty outback park which is understandable since they are still in drought conditions. However we stayed here about 8 years ago and the park conditions have deteriorated since then. Amenities are old and tired. Still suitable for a couple of days as it is on a par with the other parks in the town.
Friendly staff, no complaints, staff helped us at the site. Good value for money $30 for 2A, powered. Amenities are close to all sites, cleanliness was average, condition is reasonable, water pressure is good, there was adequate 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, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. Poor laundry. Quiet, open & roomy park, adequate shade.
