“A lovely lagoon and great caravan park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

We spent one night here during the wet season. The dirt road of around 20kms from the highway to the park was flooded in parts although we easily got through with our 4wd. When we arrived we found that we were the only people in the park. We stayed in an ensuite cabin. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The park is very tidy and it has lots of kangaroos, lizards and frogs wandering around. The staff were very friendly and helpful, they took time to show us the best fishing and crabbing spots in the lagoon. We spent all afternoon in the lagoon on low tide fishing, we had it all to ourselves. The sand flies were fierce but some Bushman's spray did the trick. We look forward to returning during the dry season to make the most of this beautiful location.

We stayed at Port Smith after being in Broome. It was an clean and friendly caravan park with a cool lagoon 2 min drive away. Crab hooks are available for free hire from reception. The ablutions were extremely clean and the roo's would lie on the empty camp sites ( the joeys were too cute!) . Manager had orphan joeys that the kids could pat but don't pat the wild ones which are just wondering around.
The only problem was the mozzies ,horse flies, etc... If staying at port smith cover up in long clothes or put on a heap of bug spray!
Great place for those who don't react to bites!
12 year old daughter got covered in bites and counted over 60 of them!!!

Beautiful, shady park, all red dirt, which is to be expected in the North West of Western Australia. Full power except for unpowered tenting areas (these are grassed). Great facilities provided, including the best and cleanest ablution blocks I have ever had the pleasure of using. Sump point and power nearby, large level sites, some drive thru. Good laundry facilities provided. Very good on site accommodation at reasonable prices.

600 meters away, the gorgeous Port Smith Lagoon awaits for people who want to swim, fish or chase mud crabs.

Thursday night "Fish & Chip Night" for small fee, all money going to RFD (live entertainment provided). Also boat trip across the lagoon to fish or picnic for a gold coin donation (also for RFD).

All trees and shrubs, which are considerable, are fed by drip feed or sprinkler irrigation and the park is kept very tidy by friendly staff. Our stay which was for 6 weeks from 1st August, 2011, was very enjoyable and charges were $33.00 per day with 1 day out of every 7 free.

The only possible downside is the low water pressure although the water is very nice to drink, and the threat of sandfly bites. Don't let these pesky guys stop you, just dress appropriately at dawn and dusk and use plenty of sunscreen during the day.

Highly recommended.
