If you like noise, yobbos in fluro, tired staff members who dont really want to help, and a park with no real holiday feeling, then this is the park for you!
On reflection, we should have just skipped Karratha on our trip around the country, the whole town has a weird, horrible feeling to it, this park included.
We were forced to stay here 10 days due to illnesses/hospital trips. The only positive about the park was that it was close to the hospital.
If you are planning to visit Karratha I wouldnt bother booking any more than 2 days somewhere.
The pool area was nice, but that doesnt really make up for the lack of good feeling anywhere else in the park.
Noisy streets, mountain bike park at back of caravan park, trail bikes in hills around park, worst located dump point we have ever come across ( and we have visited a few parks!) Right at the entrance driveway to the park, wedged between a gas tank and the roadway.
Like the whole of Karratha, its all just about dollars & thats all you are here, a dollar sign.
Really expected a lot more from a BIG 4/ Aspen park, they promote themselves as being premier tourist parks & charge a lot more than other places too, but dont know why.
During our stay we experienced a near record rainfallof 209 mm in 24 hours. Thought that maybe staff would come around to check on their paying guests to check all was ok after all this rain, but no.
No grass options for camper trailers either. There is a grassed area, but only for small tents as it is barricaded from the road,so you have to make do with a concrete slab. Grass next to slab, but they have sprinklers which come on all the time so thats not an option to set up on the grass.
Overall, very disappointed is the word.
