SA, Adelaide, Brownhill Creek Caravan Park - Mitcham

Date of Stay: August 2019 Rating: 4.5
Back again. See reports below. This has to be one of the best value for money locations. All the usual bits apply (see below) and this place has location being 6 to 8 km from the centre of the city. With koalas often in the trees, alpacas for the kids to stare at and a very attractive location, it's hard to beat. Paid $34.60 per night because we stayed 7 days plus top parks discount. During a long recent trip around much of WA we usually paid a lot more for a lot less. We can't do much better than this place. Staff very helpful, water pressure fine, kitchen/BBQ's better than average. Everything works. Just come here and write a report so that all the reports aren't written by me.

Not only a really clean and well presented kitchen but a dining room, that is a proper dining room, next to it. The laundry is well designed and set out with ironing boards constantly available as well as new looking equipment. All amenities are clean. They appear to have been refurbished and the hand dryers actually work properly. An independently run restaurant is within the park. It serves basic meals in a modest environment at a competitive price. Although there's not much grass around on the powered sites they are gravelled to avoid dust and sand. When we had a significant organisation problem the staff showed concern and actually did things to help us fix it. This waterfront park is good value for money. It easily passes the would-come-back test.
Very friendly staff. Very good value for money, powered, off-peak season. Paid $31.60, reduced for Top parks. Amenities are close to most sites, were clean, condition is very good, water pressure is good, there was adequate hot water, separate bathroom, soap provided, paper towels/dryer provided. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, poor night lighting, sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers, annex slabs to some sites, shade to some sites, drive-through sites, adequate taps close by, adequate sullage close by. Good laundry, good rec room, good camp kitchen, kiosk, dump point, secure entry, wireless internet is available is free, you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Telstra, reception quality was 3. Quiet, open & roomy park, inadequate shade, no permanent/annual vans. Clean UC electric BBQs are free, congenial bbq area atmosphere, bbq area lighting. Good playground, in good condition. No pool. Suitable for a week or more, suitable for families, well maintained park, park is considered kid-safe.
Liked:- Helpful staff. Spacious sites. Super easy access to sites.

You now enter this committee run park directly from the Calder Highway right in town. Drive down the avenue of trees, choose your site and put your money in the envelope at the rear door of the ablutions block. At $20 per night for powered/watered site and $10 for unpowered this place has all the essentials and no luxuries. The good kitchen and laundry have just been repainted. The place is not neglected.

It's a very neat and well planned, pretty caravan park which is very well drained. We had frequent rain over some days. The camp kitchen is very comprehensive as is the neat rec. room. The laundry equipment is in excellent condition. The entire park is well maintained. Every site is a drive through and generous in size. About a third of the sites have a dedicated ensuite for little or no extra cost.

WA, Kalbarri, Kalbarri Anchorage Caravan Park

Date of Stay: July 2019 Rating: 3.5
At reception we were given the least amount of info. possible for us to find the site. The huge site was very sandy but a pinned down site mat helped a lot. The old ablution block was just that...old. I fear that it is a case of don't renovate, detonate. Views of the Murchison River exist from most sites. Only a few sites in the park are level side to side. Out with the wheel chocks.
Average staff friendliness. Reasonable value for money, powered. Paid $39.80, reduced for Seniors. Amenities are close to only some sites, were clean, condition is reasonable, water pressure is good, soap provided, paper towels/dryer provided.

WA, Cervantes, RAC Cervantes Holiday Park

Date of Stay: July 2019 Rating: 3.5
This eucalypt treed park would earn a higher rating except that there was heavy rain the day before our arrival and there are large puddles distributed throughout the park both on sites and on the internal roadways. Beware when accepting your site. As this park sets a new record for the highest price we've ever paid per night, I think the water problem should be rectified.The kitchen is the best I've ever seen and the newer amenities blocks are of pleasant design and appear spotless. Our site is huge. Much more than we need.
Average staff friendliness, staff explained park layout and facilities. Reasonable value for money $57.00 for 2A PN, powered, peak season. Paid $51.30, reduced for NRMA/RAC.

Added Touches:- Fish cleaning table.
Local Information:- Cervantes is all about The Pinnacles This is the closest park and the only one in town. That may partly explain the fees..

You know how there's always some little irritating problem with any park? Well, not this one. It's really nice. Everything works, the atmosphere is great, its pretty, quiet, and well priced. The on site restaurant is open for all meals, sensibly priced and looks good. I wish I was 6 years old. The kids play facilities are fabulous. We were given a golf cart ride to choose our site - well done. All amenities are ensuite style. There are multiple amenities blocks and multiple dump points.

WA, Dunsborough, Dunsborough Lakes Holiday Resort And Caravan Park

A slightly different report for a different park. We were greeted by a woman in reception who told us to "turn left, turn right and go anywhere. Helpfulness: Tourist advice was "Don't go to Augusta, there's nothing much there." No help at site. Didn't explain park layout or facilities and we weren't offered a park map. The location has an enormous amount of permanents with a grassy undulating paddock beside it for us itinerants. Maybe forty sites. Who knows? They aren't delineated. We paid $36 per night 2A powered for these privileges. The amenities block was close to most sites, just clean enough, but the condition was poor and there was no means of drying your hands. The dump point looked like a stainless steel toilet for a robot but it worked quite well. The amenities were certainly adequate because we were (sometimes) the only occupant and there was never more than 3 sites occupied during our stay. No site was level because it's just a grassy paddock so they will accommodate any size vehicle. No slabs or mats. Drive through sites? Sure, drive anywhere you like. Tap, power and sullage was OK. I didn't see a laundry or rec room but there probably is a laundry. Basic would be a polite word to describe the camp kitchen. There is a boom gate, no car wash, a mini golf course and wi-fi. Own phone = Vodaphone 3 bars. It was a quiet park. No one was there! It was open and roomy, in fact empty. There was no shade at all. I didn't inspect the kids playground or the pool. The grass coverage was the best I have ever seen in a caravan park. there are a lot of van parks in the area. Can I suggest you choose wisely?

WA, Walpole, Coalmine Beach Holiday Park

Date of Stay: July 2019 Rating: 4
A pleasant nestled-in-the-bush location surrounded by national park. If you are wondering about the odd prices below, so are we but that's what we paid. Very friendly and pleasant people running this place. Tons of trees means that all sites are shaded. The laundry is excellent with plenty of dryers - for once. it's too far to walk to town but a boat ramp is very close by and the park is on the beachfront.

This is a good basic park for an overnight stay and preferable to staying at Wave Rock. The park appears to be owned by the tavern which is across the side street. With its quite good kitchen/BBQ and laundry its good value at $25 per night.
