The position of Tennant Creek gives travellers little choice about where to stay. Last time we came through the town we stayed at the park to the north of town which is cheaper but were not impressed, so this tim,e we opted for Outback Caravan Park. As is typical with these old parks, the periphery of the grounds are littered... More

Clean park with good facilities. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin which was clean and had all that was necessary for an overnight stay. The staff were pleasant and helpful and there is a small shop that has a good range of essentials, .

Drive through site, ideal for one night stay. Spotless amenities. Cabins looked new and well set up. Jimmy Hooker show an interesting insight into bush tucker and bush ways by an engaging fellow. Washers and driers $4 tokens. Good park.

We stayed here one night on our journey back to Adelaide. The caravan park is very quiet - located well away from the highway/main road through Tennant Creek. Check in was thorough, and we were provided with a comprehensive map of the park and its facilities. They keep an eye on who comes and goes so anyone who shouldn't be... More

We stayed here although not out of choice as our car had broken down, but the staff were helpful throughout our stay and were more than happy to be able to point us in the right direction of the different things which we needed. The only fault which I can come up with is one of the reception staff were... More

Friendly service. Good shady camping/caravan sites. Clean toilets and showers. Camp kitchen could be improved, the hot water in kitchen sinks weren't working for our 5 nights there. The hot plates for cooking with pots/pans etc were worn and some nobs were broken, making it less than easy to use. Other than that, this is a good caravan park.

This park is situated in a quieter part of the town away from the Stuart Highway. It is the more expensive of the two parks in the town at $38 per night for a powered site in May 2016. Some sites have concrete pads beside the van parking area. The showers and toilets were generally clean but although they had... More
