A good, generally basic park, undergoing some good improvements. Price of $27 powered site or $20 unpowered. A new amenities block is being built but I found the older one okay. Water pressure and temp were okay. Free dump point. An excellent camp kitchen - one of the best I have seen. Campfire area with wood supplied. Powered sites all have matting, and power and water, and some with sullage. Easy 10-minute walk to the Railway Hotel which had great meals and cold beer. 30 min drive to Port Pirie.

Manager's name is Peter.
Currently lots of road noise due to harvesting, but quiet overnight.
Very friendly staff, no complaints. Good value for money $25 for 2A PN, shoulder season. Amenities are close to all sites, were clean, condition is reasonable, water pressure is good, there was adequate hot water, paper towels/dryer provided. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, good night lighting, sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers, annex slabs to most sites, shade to some sites, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. Quiet, open & roomy park, adequate shade, a few permanent/annual vans. Clean UC BBQs. No playground. No pool. Suitable for few days.
Liked:- Great little park away from the maddening coastal crowds.
Disliked:- Feral family staying there, two feral kids, 3 noisy dogs, 1 cat ! the younger boy was very invasive of other sites and became a real annoyance. They were still screaming and yelling behind our van at 9-00pm.
Local Information:- Great new coffee shop in town, in old bank building, totally renovated and good outside sitting area, dog friendly too. Good bakery with excellent pies and pasties.
Road Conditions:- good
