“Great for overnight stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012 via mobile

Had a powered grass site which was great. The toilets were nice and private but the showers were cold. The staff were very nice and loved to have a conversation with the guests. Cheap family accommodation for a camper trailer and lovely restaurant. The meals were lovely and quite cheap as well. A lovely place to stay with staff that couldn't of helped more.

Stayed August 2012, traveled with family

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

We hired a powered site for one night for our camper van. Despite a late-ish arrival, securing a site went off without a hitch, and we had a pretty comfortable overnight stay. Showers and toilets are in self-contained cubicles, which is definitely a bonus. Facilities were reasonably clean too. We felt it was good value for money at $19.90 for two people per night. So far, so good.

The next day, we were up fairly early. My partner used the pool, then the showers, followed by breakfast. We were pretty tired from our travels up the Stuart Highway, so wanted to relax a little before heading off. My partner went off to clean his teeth around mid-morning, just before we hit the road again. He was accosted by a member of the cleaning staff just as he was about to use the facilities, and was asked if he was "from the camp". He misunderstood the question, and was basically accused of being a freeloader. When he realized his misunderstanding, he pointed out our camper van (a Britz van), indicating that we were, in fact, paying guests. Rather than apologizing, the woman simply changed her tactic, and started accusing him, (and all Britz van customers - yes ALL of them), of deliberately using the toilets and facilities at cleaning time! We can appreciate it might be a little frustrating sometimes if you want to get the job done, but really, the attitude was unnecessary, and left a sour taste as we left, spoiling our experience of what we otherwise thought was a pretty good camp facility.
