Found our way to this park after not finding any free camp spots available south of cairns. Roads are very busy up north with travellers this time of year due to the milder winter weather.
We were very lucky Russell was able to squeeze us in as several other parks (including this one) we tried were full. Russell was able to squeeze our very large camper trailer in on a lovely grassed (unpowered) spot they reserve for long term storage of caravans (thankfully only had a feet there at the time which left us lots of room to set up).
The park was chock a block full of grey nomads, never seen so many caravans lined in neat rows. Fellow guests were very friendly to us and our kids.
I need to mention again how friendly, cheerful and helpful the staff were. The facilities were very clean and modern, camp kitchen was great (though we only used it to wash up) having a stove, oven microwave fridge and two sinks for washing up.
We were right at the back of the park which made for a bit of a walk (only really a problem at night with the kids) to the toilet block (situated in the middle of the park) and the pool and playground (situated behind the reception area at the front of the park).
Only negative which also makes a positive is that the park is well off the beaten track about 20-25mins from center of cairns. But this meant that the park was very quite from traffic noise which was really lovely.
Overall a very pleasant stay. If your looking for a quiet spot out of the way to relax this is your park.
