“First stop after our arrival in Australia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

Wow, we landed in Darwin and decided to drive a bit, we landed in Katherine without wanting to but we did. So this BIG4 campsite was or first stop. It was so good, that we immediately decided 2 stay 2 nights. We met Sue and Lady Di and are still in contact with them. What a lovely people, great care for their guests and everyone made you feel at home. Everything was clean and fresh, spacious campsites and lovely neighbors topped it off.

Big park with plenty of shade and lots of green grass. Good, clean, modern amenities and a good pool area with plenty of sun lounges. We swam in the pool every day. There's a beautiful bistro and bar area under a huge Moreton Bay Fig tree all lit up with pretty lights at night. There was a great menu with lots of choice and the food was excellent. We ended up staying at this caravan park for 5 nights instead of just the 2 we were booked for and dined at the bistro twice. A pleasant experience all round.

Maybe because the weather was hot and wet, we felt the park was not that good like others reviewed. You can find ants at everywhere on the ground. The bathroom was very hot under a 39 degrees. The park is too big, so if you live at the other side and need go to main kitchen to use stoves, that is quite inconvenient.

Except these, it is still a good caravan park.

The weather here has been very hot as we approach the wet season, and unfortunately the ants that are a great part of the NT are everywhere. There are 2 camp kitchens in the Park, so sorry to hear that they were too far from where you were camped. Hope that this didn't spoil your stay.

Great park, very helpful staff. Amenities are spotless. Restaurant is good value. The pool is great. Catherine Gorge cruise is a must. If just after the wet do a 3 gorge cruise if not a 2 gorge cruise. Edith Falls well worth a look at also.

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!!!
