We stayed in a powered site in the camp ground.
The service at reception was poor. I enquired about disabled facilities in the camp ground but neither of the women on reception knew if there were any. Both reception staff dealt with my check in (only needed one of them), whilst other people were waiting to be served.
I found the ablutions to be too far away and to get to them you have to walk through fenced walkways (like a cattle race). It had rained 35mm while we were there and the paths were flooded as they are lower than the surrounding ground. The showers were great with good pressure and hot water.
We were given info about a scenic drive in the Park, which was great, but it was difficult to get specific answers.
We had heard about the Skytrek drive on Willow Springs Station. Reception told us we must collect gate key, trip notes and pay at the homestead between 10 and 10.30am. We arrived at 10am to find out we could have been there from 8am to 10.30. As a result of wrong advice, we finished Skytrek in the dark on the most difficult section of the track. Worst of all, we missed the best views of the ranges on this drive.
