The park is at a great location next to the Big Rig and walking distance to town. Friendly staff there to assist and happy people around for a chat. Amenities block could do with a bit of TLC but good hot water flow.

The park is located right next to the Big Rig and is close to town (walking distance). The sites are quite small and we did feel a bit jammed in. Facilities were clean as was the pool but it was cold. It would have been nice to have a fire-pit as a focal area but there's little room for one.... More

The cabins on this property are meant as worker accommodation and fall well short of the standard we have found in many other parks. They are small and poorly constructed with plastic walls around the shower.

We travelled 6 hours out to Roma for the long weekend. The caravan park is located at the start of the Main Street of Roma, so close to everything in town. The park has a variety of accomodation options. Caravan, tent sites, dongas/ cabins and 2 houses. We stayed in a house. Wonderful. Air conditioned and fully self contained, was... More

Disappointed with reception and made no effort to give us a drive through site although park running at about 5 % and plenty of space to allocate a drive through site. Ablutions could do with a refurb.

If you happen to be travelling through Roma during a heat wave, with a caravan, select your site carefully. We chose one under the boab trees...good decision. The trees helped to protect our van from both the morning and afternoon sun. The staff members were all really helpful and friendly. Amenities are spotless, as was the little cabin we rented...
