This is an excellent park with large and even larger sites for $40 a night. All roads are concrete and most sites have grass. The very large sites are concrete. Good amenities block and lots of shade.

$40.00pn for 2A. This park is an oasis compared to other parks in the Kimberley. Some concrete slabs. Sprinklers on most of the time attempting to keep grass green. Most sites have good green grass. Excellent showers with plenty of pressure and hot water if needed. Amenities block could use a bit more TLC in the cleaning department but otherwise acceptable. Coming from the west we accidentally took the first turnoff at the Fitzroy River and after 2km of badly corrugated road ended up at the Crossing Inn Caravan Park. Did not like the look of the clientele at the front and turned around and came out to the highway and found the right entry. Stayed again on the way south and Park is just as good. Did barra and chips takeaway for $15.00 each which was very poor quality. Threw half of it away. Would definitely stay here again and recommend Park

The park is getting ready for the wet season with sandbags in various areas. There was 5 vans and campers here tonight. Water is starting to flow in the Fitzroy River. All Safari areas have been dismantled in readiness. All sites were well shaded and green grass.
