My husband and I having been coming here for the past three years. We love the peace and quiet, the spectacular views, sunsets, bird life and bush walks. We enjoy our chats with Norm who is always very friendly and helpful. Being very reasonably priced, this Park makes a great base, while you explore everything the Tablelands has to offer. Well done Norm.

Welcoming hosts great location, nice views from site, close to shops & local attractions, clean showers & toilets. Get together with other campers on friday nights for pit fire & drinks. Sat night pit fire & meal, everone brings a dish to share, great night. was only going to stay 1 night, turned into 3

Pleasant place for a few days @ $5 pppn not potable water available as well as toilet and naturally heated shower

We saw this site on the way to Granite George on a day drive out of Cairns and called in to see for ourselves, as we are keeping our eye out for locations as we will be passing this way again next year in our motor-home. Definitely meets our needs and now planning to stop over for a few nights maybe more. Has all you need for SCVs and good to see enterprising farmers making good use of their land in this way. At $5night it represents excellent value for budget conscious travelers. Can take any size rig and the drive in is on a 500m or so good dirt road.

Real bush camping at it's best. Campfire is in the communal area for happy hour. There's a rustic shower on solar, so not always warm. But we used our own. Bathrooms nice and clean. We were asked to let our grey water go onto the trees and bushes.

Nice quiet spot to spend a few days. Cold showers and flushing toilet available. Plenty of non potable water and dump point available. Take own rubbish with you.

Lovely quiet spot. Great ideal way to use the lovely Bush. We enjoyed our stay & the campfire & potluck dinner. Young guy playing & explaining the didgeridoo was a most interesting bonus.
