Typical dusty inland van park. All the others in Winton look similar. Being located in the main street, it is easy to walk to any shop. Sites are wide and easy to access. No dump point in the park but two public ones in town. The ablution blocks are demountable but very clean.
Friendly staff, no complaints, staff explained park layout and facilities. Good value for money $30 for 2A PN, peak season. Amenities are close to all sites, were clean, condition is very good, water pressure is good, soap provided, paper towels/dryer provided, exhaust fans/good ventilation. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, good night lighting, sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers, no sites with annex slabs, shade to some sites, poor water quality, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. Basic laundry, no rec room, no camp kitchen, no wireless internet available., you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Telstra, reception quality was 4. Quiet, open & roomy park, inadequate shade, no permanent/annual vans. No BBQs. No playground. No pool. Suitable for few days.
Liked:- Discount voucher for Tattersall's Pub across the road. They own the park.
Parking:- Park in the side street to book at the bar.

Big open basic park opposite hotel. Grass strips for annex. Water, sullage & power all handy. Amenities are old but clean. Plenty of room for big rigs. Meals at pub quite good and discount for park visitors attractive. Very quiet at night and just around the corner from the main drag. The bakery beside the pub is also great. Will definitely stay here again when next in town.
