Recently spent five nights in an ensuite site at this park with the express purpose of exploring the Flinders Ranges. Although there are other caravan parks in the region, we selected this park, knowing Optus was available for phones and Wi-Fi – communications otherwise limited throughout the region. The park is an outback park. Hence, all sites were either dirt or gravel, but very well maintained. Water is available to sites. I noted a desalination plant on the outskirts of the town so I expect that this is for the purpose of treating bore water for the town. Tank water is available throughout the park. The park is within walking distance of the township of Hawker which supplies basic needs in grocery lines. The grounds are spacious with plenty of room for large vans. There is an excellent pool within the park along with a reasonable playground for kids. Toilet and shower block is clean but aged as are the ensuites. This is a very comfortable park and we enjoyed our stay. Park managers are friendly and accommodating.
