Park is very average. A lot of midgies (sandfly's) & bugs. We were bitten whilst we were only inspecting the sites. Gave it a wide birth. Stayed at the Peninsula Caravan Park instead. No midgies but lots of other creepy crawlies. The view from Grassy Hill is stunning. Great photo opportunity. Only small town! If you have a reliable 4x4... More

Stayed 5 days tent camping in a powered site. The park was well maintained, shady and the staff welcoming and friendly. It was lovely to relax in the pool and cook our meals in the huge and modern kitchen. The bathrooms could do with a bit of an update, but they were perfectly functional. Would stay here again!

We were welcomed by Tammy & Karen. Even though we arrived well before allotted check in time we given the keys to our cabin and allowed to check in. The cabin was spacious and well appointed. The information folder we were given with brochures for Cooktown was a nice touch, we haven't had that at any other park we have... More

Four of us stayed in a two room cabin for two nights. The cabins are slightly too small for that many adults but we spent most of our time swimming and sightseeing so it didn't bother us too much. Facilities in the cabins are good. No complaints about the beds or air conditioning. The swimming pool is reasonably large and... More

A beautiful, green, well kept holiday park. Extremely clean and staff were very friendly and helpful. Loved the salt water pool and the camp kitchen is big and spotless. Bathrooms are fantastic - large single bathrooms for each person with a shower, toilet and sink - very clean. A very relaxing holiday park, listening to the birds and sitting under... More

The facilities at this caravan park are fantastic and should be an example to all holiday caravan parks. The gardens were well kept, the individual ensuites a great design and clean and the camp kitchen and pool area the best I have seen. We rode our bikes to Cooktown along the Bloomfield track in July and this park was an... More

Upon arrival Heather at reception was very friendly and made us feel welcome. The camp ground was a good distance away from cabins and other campers so it felt like we weren't camping on top of one another. The amenities were very clean. The caravan park had everything we needed from clothes line to a camp kitchen with fridge/freezer, microwave... More
