“Very helpful site manager”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

We were late and missed the direction though with a GPS. We phoned the site manager several times and she kept answering in a very patient way to a non native Eng speaker. When we made the way to the site, she had been in the entry waiting for us, what a service!
The site was clean, the toilet/bath was clean too. Except the BBQ stove was not so.
The site is very large and space between caravan at my time of visit.
I would suggest B4 hand out a sign in the Low Level Nature Park to show the direction

Thank you for your response, we do appreciate your time taken to review our park. Sorry that the signage to the Park is not very good, we have restrictions with the Federal Highways and NT Government here. Sorry that the BBQ was not clean, it had probably been used for dinner as our BBQ's are cleaned in the mornings after departure. Hope you will call again.

On our second visit here, once again we found the site as a whole excellent. Friendly staff, excellent management of sites, fabulous pool to cool down in and fantastic food at the Big Fig Bistro on site. Hopefully we will be back again!!!

Towards the end of our 4WD/Off Road Camper trip through the Kimberley, and overnight stop in Katherine.

Pre-booked from somewhere on the Gibb River Road on the Satphone as we had heard this is a popular park...

Nice grassy sites, helpful reception/check-in, and friendly manager assisted us at the site (3 4WD's and Off Road Campers travelling together)...

Usual Big 4 great amenities block, and an on-site bistro with what appeared to be nice food at reasonable prices.

WiFi available - but we found it only worked reliably at the Bistro...

Happily recommend and return...

just spent two nights at big 4 Katherine,was very happy with this park and its staff,happy hour at the bistro was great,and played some 70 s cds,which we had not listened to in years ,we enjoyed a great meal and reasonably priced to,there signature curry was excellent,the owners made themselves known to the people in the bistro,and where quiet happy to mingle with thier guests,i found this a pleasant change,from purely profit driven organizations,a recently built camp kitchen had all amenties you could want,and I believe there are plans for a second shower and toilet block,excellent to see owners putting something back into the park, instead of skimming the profits off the top iwould recommend this park to anyone looking for value for money and pleasant surrounds

We booked a standard cabin with shower/toilet. Cabin was situated very well, close to the restaurant/pool area. Enjoyed the lay out of the cabins, enough privacy to sit outside on the veranda. At night we could sit outside and enjoy the stars (no light pollution).
Cabin interior looks fresh, feels visibly good, is clean and comfortable.
Reception staff are professional, informative. You are in good hands for a pleasant stay.

We stayed earlier this month in a non-powered site. At first impressions, this was great - acres of lawn/grass area, shady trees & few other people camping. Then we went looking for the amenities block. You need to find it well before you need it! There is only ONE amenities block in the middle of the powered sites, a long way from the unpowered area. The powered sites were jam packed & the amenities block is not obvious among all the caravans. It was spotless and very large, as it needed to be with hundreds of caravans nearby.
However trying to find it at night was frustrating. Unlike other amenities in other parks, which are usually lit at night with yellow lighting, this one is hidden until you trip over it or fall over the washing lines. If you walk along the wrong street, you will miss it & may need to ask someone.
However the main problem is that there is only ONE amenities block for the whole park. There should at least be another block adjacent to the unpowered area.
Not good enough for a Big 4 Park

Sorry to hear that you had difficulty finding the amenities block in the dark. We do have another small one behind the Bistro that is well lit at night and is closer to the unpowered areas. Thank you for your review and your comment are appreciated.
