Was called the Rich River Caravan & Tourist Park. After arriving in Echuca (on the Vic side), turn right on to Pakenham St, cross the railway tracks, and follow the signs until you get to Crescent Street (about 2.5 km). Turn left into Crescent Street and the park is at the end. Ph: 03 5482 3658. Pets allowed.

This quiet park is about 3km from the centre of town, near the Murray River. The owners have been here for about 9 months and are working hard to upgrade the park. We received a very friendly welcome, using a Travel Auction voucher, and were able to upgrade to an ensuite site for $7.50 per night.The renovated ensuite was very clean with instant hot water.The site was large, enabling the awning to be extended over a concrete pad. The caravan sits on gravel with grass surrounds and small trees. There are many permanents and annuals, which was no real issue except for some yapping dogs during the day.Everyone is invited to regular games nights and Friday happy hour. The park has a friendly atmosphere. Earlier comments indicated an aroma from the meat works, but this was not so during the week we were there.

We have stayed at this park on several occasions previously. Our first visit some years back was quite a good experience but since then it seems to have gone downhill. We stayed at an ensuite drive thru site as usual and whilst clean enough things overall look to need a good revamp. We paid $40.50pn and I did not think was value for money. A quiet park with a fair number of permanents it is located a few kms out of town but not so far as to be inconvenient. Road into park was in need of repair (potholed) and boom gate had been dismantled. Will look at a different location next time in Echuca.

The "park" is way outside town , away from everything except the local slaughter house and its smells. There was nothing within our walking distance and there was no "shop" for even simple supplies except a paper sometimes. At the cost of $42 per night powered site and $50 in high season we had expectations of a delightful park. The facilities were old but very clean as was the camp kitchen. The park had a large number of permanents and they at least had a few plants to brighten a dull site.
Average staff friendliness, no complaints, staff explained park layout and facilities. Poor value for money $42 for 2A PN, powered, shoulder season. Amenities are close to only some sites, were clean, condition is good, water pressure is good, soap provided, paper towels/dryer provided, disabled facilities. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, good night lighting, sites will accommodate medium to large vans, annex slabs to some sites, shade to some sites, ensuite sites available, drive-through sites, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. Good laundry, good camp kitchen, late checkout allowed, disabled facilities, dump point, no wireless internet available., you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Optus, reception quality was 3. Quiet, open & roomy park, inadequate shade, many permanent/annual vans. Clean UC electric BBQs are free, bbq area lighting, seating provided at bbq. Suitable for overnighter, park is considered suitable for mobility impaired persons.
Liked:- Sorry to say but not a single thing - never took my camera out of its case.
Disliked:- The site was a slab and uncut neglected grass and dirt - the smell from the abattoir put us off our food.
Parking:- Hard to comply with sign not to enter before going to office but not to block the entrance which is one car wide.
Added Touches:- Nothing offered or available.
Road Conditions:- All roads excellent.

Manager's name is Joe & Richard
The Park is no longer with Big 4 but Family Parks Aust. It is unfortunately across the road from the Abattoirs and receives associated odours. Sites are very worn. Some Cabins in need of attention. New managers on trial so maybe things will improve but they have their work cut out. They were very friendly which is a good start. It appears that many of their guests are a result of Travel Auctions which means they are only paying about half of the normal site fees and maybe at that price it is not too bad. At $42.00 I would not stay again. Cabins were $140.00 a night which also was expensive.

Quiet, open & roomy park, adequate shade, many permanent/annual vans. Clean UC electric BBQs are free, congenial bbq area atmosphere, bbq area lighting, seating provided at bbq. Basic playground, in average condition. Dirty pool, toddlers catered for. Suitable for few days.
Disliked:- Park is rundown. Too many permanents intermingled with tourist sites. Amenities did not appear to be properly serviced regularly.
Parking:- Finding somewhere to park is a real problem.
Local Information:- The old wharf area is well done and worth spending time there. Clubs are always good for entertainment and meals.
