Stayed in a cabin on site. Expensive for what it is but for some reason Tennant Creek is ruinously expensive no matter where you stay. The cabin cost about the same as a room in the motel I stayed at last time but was bigger, cleaner, more comfortable, and much better equipped. Had stove & cooking equipment so we could... More

We stayed here on out way to Alice Springs and was a great stop over. The management were very friendly which is nice after a 7 hour drive! We stayed in a standard cabin and it was a bit high in price ($99) but better than camping that's for sure! Lovely pool and BBQ facilities! Would stay here again!

Very Expensive. By far the most expensive place we have stayed at on our trip from brisbane-broome. $38 for 1 night on a powered site. I had planned to stay at this park over the other one due to other reviews on trip advisor, but when we arrived it looked a little scary, so we drove to the other one,... More

Dear Arlucas, Very sorry you think we are expensive, this has been my price now for 2 years and will be going up next year to meet my ongoing cost of running a park, we are very competitive with other parks in the Northern Territory. I am glad you enjoyed the showers and with the pool this time of the... More

In response to your Bring a Torch. 99% of Customers have there own torch and use within any Caravan Park, as most people do not like much lighting at all. Our lights are on sensors so they come on for a certain period and then go off/on when movement. If you had your map that was given to you on... More

Stayed a week in a cabin at the Outback Caravan Park. The Park is quiet of a night (very peaceful) The cabins are a little dated but functional. The aircon & cooking facilities are old but work when you get the hang of it. Bed was comfortable & new. Service from owners & staff was very good. Happy hour @... More

Lovely friendly staff. We didn't book and we were lucky that the conference/event nearby had finished. Clean facilities which were handy to our powered site, not too close to the highway so noise was at a minimum, and we would go back.

Had a nice shady, grassed unpowered tent site right near the amenties block and it was the best priced camp site on the whole run. Nice people and good clean facilities. It's up a side road near the centre of Town in a very quiet area. Really enjoyed my night there and got loads of uninterrupted sleep

The last time I stayed at this park was 2 years ago and I have avoided it since due to unsavoury permanent residents and their habits ... but this time I pulled in because it was under new management and everyone deserves a 2nd chance. The guys who are currently managing the park are very friendly and they went out... More

This is an unusual site. It has all the usual powered and unpowered standings and adequate but not first rate facilities but the site's quirkiness is it's charm. Firstly, it doesn't take advanced bookings - it's first come first served. Secondly, you pick your own place, they don't allocate one for you. Thirdly, they have their own bush tucker man... More
