To all the lovers of this caravan park, you obviously have not stayed there when a school camp group hires the bunkhouse behind sites 40 - 43.We would never have accepted the given site if we had been advised at booking of the school group. When queried, I was told that it was not necessary to advise caravanners of this. The entry to the caravan park is not obvious if coming from Purnong. Don't get caught up in the ferry queues. Booking in was efficient and friendly with clear instructions on site access. Paid $129 for 4 nights powered shade cloth site (TT discount). Shade cloth covered the whole site so we were not able to use ropes to secure our awning. Coded amenities were spotless. Camp kitchen is well equipped + TV. BBQs were very clean. Easy walk to town. Info Centre was excellent and attached maritime centre is a must. Touring guides are comprehensive. Shame about the noisy kids!

A great park with a real family atmosphere. We stayed over New Year and it was quite crowded, but still seemed to cope well with the number of people. Park is now a member of Top/Discovery group.

Mixture of grass sites with either a shade cloth annex pad or concrete slab. Grass is in good condition. Away from the riverfront the sites are gravel with either a brick paved or shade cloth annex slab. Cost was $35 per night before chain discount. Amenities clean with good water pressure and plenty of hot water. Keypad entry. Laundry has cold water wash only ($4) plus dryer. Adequate to cope with park numbers. Small amenities block by the tennis courts available for when the main block is being cleaned. Small laundry in this block with 1 washing machine and 1 dryer. Plenty of clothes line space. Free electric BBQs were clean but a bit slow to heat up. Well appointed camp kitchen with slow combustion heater for when it gets cold. Dump point. Boom gate on entry and exit. Free WiFi covers the Park from the local Council limited to 1 hour per day. Can be very slow at times. Walking distance to the main street. Number of annual vans but these were in a separate section of the Park from the tourist park. Generally an excellent Park right on the River Murray to use as a base to explore the surrounding area.
