Tripigy has stayed here and can verify the amentiies. We found this park to be very friendly. We left our caravan there while we went through the Simpson Desert for 2.5 weeks and they kept a close eye on it for us. Very friendly managers. Definately recommend staying here.

This is a very pleasant park and from check in we felt welcome. Facilities are good and some sites even have their own on suite. It was fairly busy when we were there but still adequate room. It is walking distance from the shops etc across the Mitchell River.
