Booked in for overnight stay as most motels were booked out and too expensive just for a night sleep, Booking very busy so obviously not much info given. After the explanation of where my cabin was I got lost. The room was nothing spectacular, smelly and not well maintained. Years ago when it was new would have been fantastic. The... More

We stopped here on our drive back to Townsville from Brisbane. The park is very clean and the access was great. We were towing a trailer and there was ample space next to our cabin. The pool was lovely and we had heaps of laughs on the mini tennis court. On the north side of Rocky but there is still... More

This is a regular campsite. It is quit big, has two pools and a sort of bistro. Downside it is a little too big and not so personal because more groups stay here. We had more contact with guests at other campsites. A thing to take into account; the kitchen is small and only offers hot plates. There is no... More

We stayed here for two nights in the tent area near the jumping pillow. Staff couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating. There was entertainment around Easter for all the family. The kids loved the jumping pillow and the pools were great. Well managed park. Would definitely stay again.

We spent one night here in a Leisure Villa. It was fairly basic accommodation as you would expect but it was clean and everything worked. My husband And I only stayed one night and I don't think I would recommend for much longer. We both had the worst nights sleep, it wasn't anything to do with the bed that was... More

Just a one night stay here for my family on the way back from local beaches, but really enjoyed our time in Rockhampton. We Hope to be able to visit again, staff were friendly and it's a good location.

Went to Rocky 2 weeks after a cyclone hit. Despite obvious signs of destruction, the park itself was clean and tidy. 2 swimming pools were perfect for cooling off and having a bit of down time. Close to main shopping centre was handy and take away across the road. Sunset villa was cosy and neat but could have done with... More

I stayed in a studio unit for 4 nights while attending Residential School at CQUniversity North Rockhampton. It was a quick drive away but I would not have wanted to walk from the park to the uni. The Park was very affordable, tidy (despite Cyclone Marcia having wreaked havoc just a week before) and quiet. The studio had everything I... More

We were at the park with a camper van when the Cyclone hit we owners really looked after their guests and ensured everyone was safe. Opening up 3 motel rooms for the people with vans to use and shelter. They got the park re-opened after trees fell across roadways in double quick time and offered all sorts of advice they... More

Thanks for your review Kenty! We really appreciate your kind words. And you are right, despite the mammoth clean up which was required, very little of our infrastructure was permanently damaged so we are well on the road to be up and running at 100% again! More

Not the best, and not the worst. Staff were friendly, place was clean and tidy. But for me it was just a stopping point, on the way up to port Douglas. No wow factor. But just OK . I would go back, but again just as a rest stop
