This park is owned by the Council and is being refurbished under the WA Government’s Royalties for the Regions program. There is a new amenities block and a large camp kitchen is under construction alongside it. Otherwise no camp kitchen or bbq facilities at the moment that we could find. Amenities were clean with good hot water but the water pressure in the showers was terrible. Shower cubicles were roomy with shower curtains and a floor mat to put down in the dressing area. Laundry was clean with $4 wash and $4 dry. Small book exchange in laundry. Sites were level and most appeared to be drive through with bluemetal base. Power, water and sullage to sites. A number of sites behind the amenities block were blocked off and it appears this area was being refurbished as well. Dump point alongside one of the old amenities block was merely a 150mm pipe with a cap and water close by. Cost was $30 per night.
