My Husband and i stayed 3 nights in one of the Cabins in this park. They were very roomy and comfortable. Staff at reception were helpful and pleasant. Very convenient place to stay. Just out of Darwin City so handy to get too the Parks areas and close enough to city. This, we both agree is a very beautiful city.

Close enough but far enough from Darwin to get away for the weekend. Great facilities here. A nice big pool and poolside bar/restaurant. Whether you're staying in a cabin, powered site, or caravan, it's a pleasure to stay here. For the extra couple dollars would recommend getting an ensuite powered site over one without an ensuite.

We arrived in our motorhome in the middle of a storm and the manager of the park was so helpful it was fantastic and he was very happy to have us there as some parks are not so happy to see big rigs roll in as they take up so much room. The cost to stay was very reasonable and... More

We have just enjoyed a good few days at the Big 4 Howard Springs. We made good use of all the well maintained facilities and the staff could not be more friendly or helpful. We even managed to score an invite to the Melbourne Cup festivities! Being out of peak season now means everywhere is so much quieter, this leaves... More

2 adults, powered site booked in for 3 weeks, end of June to July 2015. Crammed in like sardines, some people couldn't even put their awnings out. The amenities were newish and clean, but there just weren't enough for the number of people. Had to queue up most days. Lots of people had the same opinion, heard lots of complaints.... More

We stayed in a queen bed cabin in August. It was just for 1 night on our road trip. The Reception staff were friendly, a good start. Then we got to the cabin... Immediately it smelled a little musty. The bedspread was quite old and faded. The fridge had mould on the bottom corner door. The bathroom was clean enough.... More

Six days in a villa cabin. What a mismoner. It was a very ordinary standard cabin. Everything worked but shower was ordinary. Not very clean. Needs some attention to detail. Well located for easy access to Darwin cbd. 4 star rating is questionable
