On arrival we were escorted to our site and directed in which was a wonderful change as most parks draw you a map and say goodbye good luck. Immaculate amenities, very clean and spacious sites. The wild life is also amazing. Lovely walks around the dam and lake. Highly recommend.

This is a great spot to take some time out and enjoy the lake. We had a very pleasant site down near the trees. Spent some time kayaking on the lake and trying our hand at catching the local red claw. The meals on wheels service is a great initiative and we enjoyed the crumbed barramundi, chips and salad delivered... More

Fantastic location alongside a vast expanse of water in a relatively dry area. Very popular with very friendly campers. Great facilities and absolutely the best showers I have ever encountered in 40 years of caravanning. The management are to be congratulated for extending a warm and friendly welcome on arrival . A great feature of the park on a set... More

Stayed here overnight on a road trip to Alice Springs! So wish I could have stayed for a few days to appreciate the place. Beautiful modern cabin that faced the dam with great kitchen. Air conditioned etc. I was really impressed with what I saw and would love to visit again one day but for longer next time.

We only stayed here one night, but wish we had longer. Reasonably easy access to the lake where we enjoyed an afternoon in kayaks. We brought our own, but you can also hire them from reception. There is also a boat ramp if you want to take your boat out and maybe do a spot of fishing. There was lots... More

The resort itself is quiet & placed right next to the lake with easy access, however on the first day we found the pool was dirty, lots of bugs & leaves in it which wasn't too pleasant but it had been cleaned to a more acceptable standard by the second day. The amenities where clean & modern but insect nets... More
