“It's all about the location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

This caravan park is in a beauitufl location, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city adjoining the Brownhill Creek reserve. We stayed for 4 nights in October in our caravan on an ensuite site. The site backed onto the bush on the bank of a small stream surrounded by beautiful trees. On the first morning there was a koala in a tree near our caravan.
The ensuite was in need of refurbishment but was adequate for our needs. The staff were very obliging when I phoned to book in and shuffled bookings to enable us to stay as requested which we appreciated. There is a small pool for the summer and beautiful walks in the area. Brownhill Creek is in a lovely part of Adelaide with good shopping close by and easy access to the Highway and Mt Lofty as well as across to the beaches.

Did not have any problems with the staff or facilities, they were renovating the office when we visited and that appears to brighten it up also, easy to locate travelling from Victoria and location was great, the walking tracks were handy also. Not a problem will stay again

We had great service when we stayed here. This is the second time we have stayed at brownhill both times for the Adelaide show. We booked into a deluxe family cabin for the 1st night then a cheaper cabin for the next 3 nights, to save moving us they let us stay in the deluxe cabin for the rest of the stay at no extra cost! this was especially great as it was show time and they would have been fully booked so could easily have sold it for full price. Cabins are lovely, really clean, comfy beds, big TV, parking space. Great walks just behind the cabins to the top of a hill with wonderful views of Adelaide Would definitely recommend it and will stay there again.

Disregard any negative comments about this place as we found it absolutely perfect. The managers where very helpful, accommodating and friendly. The park is in the best location of any caravan/ cabin park in Adelaide, quiet, fantastic walking trails and close to the city and suburbs. We spent a week in a cabin and it was clean, well appointed and large enough for a family of four. I would recommend this park and will return when ever we visit Adelaide. PS the prices are very reasonable as well. Thank-you

Dont really know where to start with this place... Location to the town centre was great nice and easy to get to and from with or without your own vehicle. Also as park of the park there was very little noise from other transport and day to day commotiom. Amenities always clean - even if there's a dated look that makes you wonder if it's clean - but I assure you it is. Kitchen has 2 fridges, BBQ and gas hob facilities with a few spaces for sitting and eating there - which were also very clean. Cabins - I have no idea as was in an unpowered site. Now for $25 per night I was not going to complain at all for what we got - have definitely paid a lot more for a lot worse!
Only thing I will mention is that reception never told us they key given was to access to toilet block, not the end of the world, but when you're busting and it's a 200m return walk it can be annoying. Also the end of the campsite where we stayed had toilet/showers but were a little distance away and only 1 shower. Other/better amenities were another 100 or so meters away and had enough of everything needed. Basically everything you need is at the reception/entrance area. My only real 'fault' with the place was the camp kitchen. Obviously those that would need to use this facility are those staying in the unpowered sites, however it is at the complete opposite end of the grounds. This ends up being a slight problem when carrying everything you need to cook and eat about 150/200m away... But again for me it was the only fault which I can't complain much about with the location and price paid! I would stay there again but just pitch up camp closer to everything...

We stayed at the Brownhill Creek Caravan park for 6 nights in March 2012. We have now been on the road for 7 months and would rate this caravan park as one of our favourites. We chose to stay at this park as it was close to some friends we were visiting in Adelaide. Although the park was so close to the city, it was so quiet and peaceful. It was hard to believe a park like this could exist with bushland all around while being so close to the city.

The amenities were older but always clean and tidy. The park seemed to be reasonably well maintained and the staff were helpful at all times. Public transport was within walking distance and grocery shops only a short drive away.

The park was great value for money and a great base from which to explore Adelaide. We would recommend this park to others.

I have stayed at the caravan park on several occasions in both the cabin and a villa and found them to be very adequate and very reasonably priced and I had the convenience of being close to most amenities (ie Mitcham and Unley Road shopping precincts) and the Adelaide CBD. The staff were very obliging and friendly I must say. The location is just beautiful - kookaburras and other bird life, the odd koala visit and plenty of trees - very relaxing in my view and a place seamingly much further away from the hustle and bustle than it is. I intend to visit again.

Room Tip: I found the Villa and on another time the 3 bedroom Family unit as a very good option if you want th...
