The best park I've been in with lovely shady sites, facilities are like ensuites with toilet & shower. Very friendly staff, a short walk to the Bitter Springs and dog friendly.

A bit on the expensive side but that seems to be the going rate along the Stuart Highway. Nice and shady and lots of space in the unpowered section as we seem to to be the only ones who have discovered solar panels :) Facilities are clean and what you would expect and not far from the springs.

Very expensive when you only require somewhere to park for the night.

We found this Caravan Park not to be anything like the other reviews. The hosts were obliging and friendly. The grounds although dirt (which is what the country is like outside of cities) were clean and cleared. The spots were all spacious and plenty off. We found the ablution block to be very clean and spacious. We enjoyed our stay emencely and will stay again.

Would not stay here. Sites are all dirt. There is no lighting in park after dark, with lots of trip hazards. Toilets are unlined garden sheds rusted out at the bottom with concrete floors with no tiles. No drainage for grey water so have to watch where you walk as it sits on the ground. Would not pass council health and safety anywhere, but NT. Bitter Springs are great to go to to float down the river.
