Perfect location - we used this as our base while we coordinated our wedding between Cairns & Port Douglas. Stayed in a Daintree Bungalow with my husband - perfect size, very clean and neat.

We had a cabin here which was lovely apart from a slightly snug bathroom. The park is great. Like a real campsite feel. Staff in reception are soooo helpful and really friendly. Highly recommend and superb location if you have a car for all the local sights.
