NSW, Deniliquin, Pioneer Tourist Park

Date of Stay: July 2017 Rating: 3
This park is on the Cobb highway leaving Deni going North. Be careful as my TomTom has it in Deni up a side street near Mcleans beach CP. The Pioneer park is a pleasant place to stay for a couple of days. We took an ensuite site. Ensuites are old and basic but clean. Small camp kitchen and laundry. Also a fire can be lit near the kitchen. Interest relics from the pioneer days are scattered thru the park. Plenty of bush and a small creek to stroll around.

Qld, Normanton, Gulfland Motel Caravan Park

Date of Stay: July 2017 Rating: 4
Very helpful owners. Most sites are set between shady trees. Gravel with concrete annex slabs. Basic amenities with plenty of hot water and good pressure. Swimming pool behind the motel. Dump point. Friday nights they run a prawn happy hour. By a drink at the bar and get a bowl of fresh cooked prawns free. They also show an old movie about the lady croc hunter who shot the big croc near the information centre. The park was very busy while we were there. Suggest you book ahead.

Qld, Lawn Hill, Adels Grove Camping Park

Date of Stay: July 2017 Rating: 2.5
A very pretty place to camp. $36 per night. A pleasant reception and cafe area. Meals are expensive and small. Drinks expensive also. The fish and chip shack provides a good meal for 2 at $27. Telstra wifi only at café area. No power to sites. Some water taps but you should boil the water prior to drinking. After check in you have to find your site. The map they give you is totally inaccurate. Most sites are not identified or laid out. We fortunately were allocated a clearly labelled site. It just wasn't were they said it was. The ladies at reception are not interested when you try to explain how inaccurate their map is. The amenities are third world. Leaking or blocked toilets. Corroded showers that barely function. Low water pressure and hot some times run cold or not at all. They use a Donkey boiler to heat the shower water. A very pretty and interesting place to visit. Also the Lawn Hill national park 9 K down the road. Plenty to see and some good walks.

Qld, Julia Creek, Julia Creek Caravan Park

Date of Stay: July 2017 Rating: 3.5
A large park. gravel sites with concrete slabs. Some shade. Sue the manager is very helpful. Clean amenities and laundry. Dump point. The community heated swimming pool is across the road. We paid $20. per night as we received the 3 night stay special. Well worth staying for this time. Plenty to see in Julia Creek. We also visited the free camp just outside town. It was packed. They were jammed in nose to tail and side by side. I much preferred the town caravan park.
