After a pleasant check-in, we were told to find a place in the park, plenty of room under many shady trees. Things went downhill from there, the camping area had no marked caravan bays, if you parked in the centre you would get blocked in when more vans arrived!! There was no provision for grey water disposal so everyone just... More

Good Evening John_from_WA, We take on your ideas for grey water disposal it hasn't been mentioned before by any other customers. The park is only a 1/3 capacity in August as June and July so most of the Powered area is very roomy and many spots to choose. Which from other feedback is what most customers like about the park....

Husband and I and our two dogs stay at Timber Creek overnight and it had good grass area for the dogs. Dogs loved the space. You do not book- just first in, best dressed. Toilets old but clean. There is a cafe, pub and at reception you can purchase sandwiches, fruit and chips and coffees. If you wish too, you... More

We stayed for one night in the motel section and were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the room which has been tastefully renovated and the tea and coffee were top shelf. The bar was great and the Sunday Roast special was really enjoyable.

After reading good reviews of this park we were very disappointed to discover that the amenities blocks, while reasonably clean, need considerable work to bring them to an acceptable standard. There are ladies toilets without catches on the door, so you have to hold the door closed if you need to use the cubicle. The back toilet block had no... More

Good Evening Barbeng, I am disappointed your stay was not a happy one. I apologise for the lack of toilet paper in the rear Ladies Caravan Park toilets on Sunday.

We arrived mid afternoon after a leisurely drive from Katherine with lots of stops along the way to take photos and admire the scenery.

Awesome little place for a nights stopover. The food at the restaurant was good and the very service friendly. The accommodation is a bit dated... But it's serves its purpose well enough.

Dropped in for dinner, the meal was huge, nicely presented and cooked perfectly. We were kept entertained by some locals and other travellers. The pub is a good place for some great yarns. The pub was a fun friendly place for a meal and a night out. We found people friendly and informative. We will visit again.
