Nothing has changed still a reasonable overnighter, with the advantage of been able to process all your remaining vegetables by cooking or topping and tailing them before going through the Quarantine Station on the SA/WA border $2.00 per shower and no water to the site as is expected on the Nullarbor. Meal at the Roadhouse, you are better of cooking your own

This is a typical roadhouse caravan park with power poles randomly placed in a paddock. $25 is what you pay plus $2 for shower. Good mobile signal and some analogue reception available

No change from last reports-power heads still only 50% operational. Very much take it or leave it attitude by staff. Redeeming feature is cleanliness of ablution blocks. However after along day on the road its OK for an overnighter. However there are better options nearby.

Used mainly as an overnight stay, $25 for two people, $8 for extra person. Only about 50% of the power posts were working, a lot were gaffer taped up. So check rather than park and find you have no power. One person gave up and had longest power lead I have ever seen. No water at site. Take it or leave it. Average staff friendliness Poor value for money ($33 A3 PN). Amenities are close to only some sites, cleanliness was average, condition is reasonable, water pressure is good, there was adequate hot water, extra charge for shower, paper towels/dryer provided. Adequate number of tourist sites, some level sites, good night lighting, sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers, no sites with annex slabs, very few sites are shaded, drive-through sites, poor water quality, no rec room, no camp kitchen, kiosk, dump point, no wireless internet available, you can use your mobile wireless (carrier used was Telstra, reception quality was 4). Quiet, open & roomy park, not enough shade, no permanents. Dirty UC bbq. wood, bbq area lighting. No playground, no pool. Suitable for overnighter, suitable for families.
Disliked:- Park is dirt and a long time since it was maintained, poor or no maintance on electricity to sites. Really, just dirt sites where a electricity post has been put in without too much thought.
Parking:- Book site in service station office.
Added Touches:- Restaurant at service station, not too bad.
Local Information:- Great Australian Bight lookouts are worth stopping at.
