“Best Park In Townsville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We stayed here In June & July 2013 For a month because the park was very good . Initially we where Put Off staying here as earlier Reviews were not very good . Being Quite Fussy we went and Inspected all parks the parks in Townsville before we made a decision where to stay . Magnetic gateway was a last Resort But we where pleasantly surprised by the parks facilities .

We had site 108 . A large grassed site to the rear of the park overlooking a lake . Even had a chance to throw in a line for fun on some days but couldn't get Lucky We caught a few Eels and even a turtle . Our Site was large and Grassy and Quiet . Away from the Front Road . Amenities Where Clean with good Hot Showers available at any time . Very Good rates

Management where also very good . Even putting On A BBQ for visitors for a footy match .I would recommend this park to anyone . Sorry to leave actually . One Of My Highlights Of My Trip

Room Tip: Any Of The Rear sites . Probably Not in the wet season though

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We really weren't sure where to stay in Townsville after reading some very negative reviews of caravan parks in the area. However we decided to stay at the Magnetic Gateway and it's turned out to be a good choice.

The sites are a generous size - lovely grassy sites near the creek - or slab sites. Ask for a site away from the highway, near the creek, as they are much quieter. The amenities are very clean and there are two blocks. The lady in the office was wonderful and very friendly and helpful. ( I had read some negative comments about office staff but I believe there has been a change of management since that was written).

My only negative comments are: 1. the roads inside the park are very rough, but hopefully, they are on the list for the new managers! And 2. signage from the highway is not adequate. It's very hard to turn around with a 22 foot caravan behind you, so adequate signage is very important.

I would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a site near the creek and away from the highway. The grassed sites are great.
