Flemington Rd, Mitchell. Coming from Yass along the Barton Hwy, turn left when you reach the Federal Hwy (Northbourne Avenue). About 2 km on you will see the racecourse on the left then a sign saying to turn left into Flemington Rd. Go past this to the next intersection and turn left at the Woollies Fuel Stop service station with Maccas next door. Follow the road around to the right. The caravan park is a few hundred m up this road. Office for EPIC has now been relocated near the main gate. Ph: 02 6230 5793. Pets allowed on leash.

This is a showground and the sites are quite large but the cost is expensive at $35/night for a standard powered site and $40 for a larger powered site. Most sites have water but some don't. The amenities are old and the windows are usually left open so it can be cold in winter showering as no heating is provided in the amenities. You now need a code to access the laundry. They have installed some BBQ's and tables under some shade cloth. At the moment the bus does not stop at EPIC as they are building the light rail on Flemington Road. It is quite a long walk to the bus stop on Northbourne Avenue. When the light rail is completed there will be a stop out the front of EPIC which will be good. This is probably one of the better places to stay in Canberra but it is expensive for what is provided.

Stayed here before. Excellent spot for overnight in colder months, need power in minus temps. There is work being carried out at the moment, but adequate large van and motor homes sites available. We paid $33 dollars for a powered sit for 2 people in our 7.5mt total length caravan. Larger rigs ..like buses, pay $38.00. Large shower block and there is a dump point at the rear of the toilets. Well worth a stay. So much to see in this city.

Absolutely woeful when comparing with Caravan Parks which you do when paying $33 a night. Canberra is very poorly serviced for parks which is such a pity as there is SO much to do and see in our Capital City. In fact a significant number of our club's members declined to come to the club gathering simply because they didn't want to endure the horrible park conditions. While the park manager is great and is very customer focussed, the ablutions are basic (bare unpainted concrete floors only) the sites have few sullage outlets so you're walking through other people's sullage all the time and there are no paths from one row to another - the whole thing is quite ikky and worth about $10 a night!!
Very friendly staff, good staff response to complaints. Poor value for money $35 for 2A. Paid $33.00, reduced for Group Booking. Amenities are close to only some sites, were dirty, condition is poor, water pressure is good, there was adequate hot water, soap provided. Adequate number of tourist sites, mostly level sites, poor night lighting, sites will accommodate large motorhomes and 5th wheelers, no sites with annex slabs, shade to some sites, drive-through sites, adequate taps close by. No rec room, no camp kitchen, dump point, you can use your mobile wireless carrier used was Telstra, reception quality was 5. Quiet, open & roomy park, adequate shade, no permanent/annual vans. No BBQs. No playground. No pool. Suitable for few days.
Liked:- Able to stay in Canberra
Disliked:- It was very very basic with poor facilities, blocked dump point, no sullage and just plain ikky!
