“Best Caravan Park ever stayed in”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

We stayed 4 nights at the end of July. From the moment we walked in to the reception and were greeted by the friendly staff, then by the man who escorted us to our site, we knew we had made a good choice. The amenities were spotless and great to have a green grassed site. Loved the free pancake breakfast on Sunday. Perhaps we should have asked for a shady site, as there were plenty of empty sites and we were in the sun for most of the day. Overall, in all of the years we have travelled, this is the best park we have ever stayed at. Congratulations to the owners and all staff members.

Room Tip: For caravanners and campers, perhaps ask at reception on arrival if you have a shady site. I am sur...

Stayed here for 2 nights before heading up the Tanami Road in our 4WD/Off Road Camper Trailer.

Warm welcome at reception, shown to the site (powered), impeccably clean amenities and brilliant camp kitchen/dining area.

This is what holiday park camping should be - they have set the standard!

We also enjoy bush camping and remote out of the way places, but if you need a stop-off in civilisation - this would be my recommendation in the Alice...

Well done management and staff at Macdonnel Ranges!

We stayed here for 6 weeks in 2010, during June-July; and reading the current reviews, the place is still as fabulous as when we stayed. We had a caravan, and it was great to feel grass under our feet after many weeks of travelling the Outback. All the amenities and ablution blocks were spotless, especially the washing machines. A quiet park and within walking distance elf the Tavern down the road, where there are cheap, good meals. The Sunday Pancakes were a real treat, and even when the park was full, the wait was not long before we were tucking into the pancakes. Oh, and the Strawberries and Cream to die for, I was very disappointed when the Strawberry van was not there every night!!!! LOL. Plenty of things to do during the school holidays, Didgeridoo playing and Star gazing and Sing-a-longs in the evening. Many bus loads of school children stayed in the camp while we were there, but, they are no problem, just put our shower of until later in the day. We would definitely go back here again, staff are friendly, shop has many items which one may have forgotten to pack etc. congratulations to all the wonderful staff, and ir seems you folk are still working hard and making people smile.

It was a busy time with the Finx Race. We were tourists just travelling through, yet the Staff still provided a friendly and warm welcome. The is quietly located about 10 minutes outside town. It was surprising and great to have some beautiful grass on our site and we appreciated the assistance in getting quickly into our site by one of the staff. The amenities looked like they were new, as they were extremely clean and well maintained. The park has a little convenience store with the essentials. The park is well organised, maintained and quiet, especially for this time of a major event. Thanks for the great experience.

This BIG4 park is a warm welcome. Excellent cabins with all facilities for a comfortable stay. This is coming home.
The park facilitates shop, snack/coffee place but no restaurant. No worries, pubs within walking distance and city center is not far away.
The park is close to the points of interest, supermarkets and mall.

This is quite a large caravan park about 4km out of town, the laundry facilities were great with loads of space to hang washing, a great playground for people travelling with children. They have free activities from a free pancake breakfast on Sundays, a local singer and even stat gazing. The toilet block was kept spotless with quite large showers. Pool looked very nice but to cold to try them out. all in all a great caravan park, one of the best we have ever stayed in.

We stayed in an ensuite cabin which was set up for 6 so was very roomy for 2. Spotlessly clean, neat and well appointed. Beds comfy, a couple of easy chairs would have been a good alternative to the hard wooden dining chairs. A larger frypan a bd saucepan are really needed but other than that it was a very pleasant stay, plenty of room and lovely gardens.
The strawberry man was a real bonus. I' d stay there again if I could.
