“Planned a night but stayed a week”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Simple site but delightful setting by the river. very forendly and the amenities are spotless - one of the best I have come across. There were problems with a petty thief - someone entering unlocked caravans and stealing money but as long as you are sensible and lock things up I wouldn't let this put you off. Its just good to be warned about it.

Location, location...this caravan park certainly has it! Located on the banks of the Darling River the sunsets and sunrises were spectacular. For bird lovers, the closeup views of water birds was very special and there is a wooden bird hide. Many campers chose positions right on the river bank for good reason! We stayed in one of the older ensuite holidays units with full cooking faciliies. The unit was clean but worn. The park management were friendly and helpful, as were many of the other visitors, it was a very friendly place to be! There aren't any willows any more, they have been cleaned out to give visitors complete access to the river. Shade was provided by large River Red gums. The Wentworth shopping centre was conveniently located just up the road and the locals were helpful too.

Room Tip: There are a variety of holiday units at different prices according to their age.

Came for 2 days but ended up staying a week. Great location, friendly and quiet. Plenty of room to move and manouver a van onto sites. Amenities are old but clean, good water pressure. Wentworth is a top spot to spend a few days. Definately will use this caravan park again.

Stayed at the Willow Bend Caravan Park at the end of our Darling River Run. Great place to stay in a fantastic town. We were there during the Country Music Festival; this meant a few specials including a 90 minute cruise on the Darlin/Murray for $10.
Willow Bend Van Park is a fantastic park in a lovely town. I would definitely use this as my base iif I were going to do the Mildura sights. On the whole, the Willow Bend is a great park on the tranquil Darling and an effortless walk in to town. (Great bakery with a delicious vegetable slice opposite the IGA).
Maybe it's just me, but I don't understand why the radio is piped into the ablutions block 24 hours a day, especially when it is distorted half the time. Also not a fan of the lack of shower screen/curtain and hooks on which to hang clothes. Definitely not a deal-breaker, because Wentworth is a delight. Check out the Paddlesteamaer Ruby if you get the chance. And the $5 lunch specials at the Wenworth Sports Services Club every weekday are UNBEATABLE. Try doing that at home for the money.

One of the few parks to live up to its website advertising. as described, with plenty of clean facilities and good sites on the river. Friendly and helpful hosts, recommended. Plenty of birdlife & good walking tracks.

We were greeted in a very friendly way by Donna on arrival, invited to park wherever we liked in the areas indicated, and found the sites level and grassy. Amentities block was spacious and clean, and there was a toilet closer that was handy at night, though the park is well-lit. We enjoyed hte ducks and ohter birds - and were most interested in the re-vegetation project, which means hte willows are not there now. We'd expected to park to be full and often staff in usch situations are busy and rushed, but although it wasn't full - and amazingly so, given beautiful weather - I the friendly staff we met would be professional even at busy times. The camp kitchen was the best we have seen - very up-to-date and we appreciated the big freezer we used to make our own ice. It's a beautiful quiet spot, but an easy walk to the town centre, even for someone with a slight disability. All in all, a lovely holiday and we will certainly be back.

Room Tip: We were only a few feet from the river, at the end furthest from the bridge - birds rose early, whic...

Park is very central to everything in Wentworth and is right on the banks of the Darling River. Park amenities are in good order and with resident owners who appear to be highly motivated they should remain so.
