BIG4 MacDonnell Range Holiday Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 1, 2014

This was a very well maintained park, tidy, friendly informative staff, plenty of suggestions for activities to do. Very good facilities and very clean. This is what we expected from a BIG4, we were not disappointed in anyway, plenty of room, shade and grass in pleasant surroundings.We will definitely be back on our return trip and would recommend this to all travelers.

We stayed for 3 nights in a powered site. The facilities are spotless! The camp kitchens (and there are plenty scattered around the place - so never far to walk) were cleaner than many commercial kitchens I have seen.
Plenty of shady spots and you don't feel like you are living in each other's camp.
Toilet blocks were extremely clean, and checked regularly.
Info given at time of check in as to what is happening during the week if you would like to participate or not. We went to the 4wd drive safety talk and learnt things we didn't know, even after over 30 years of 4wd'ing.
Movie night put on for the kids. Posters put up in toilet blocks, but were also told personally by staff who were always around.
The laundry facilities are the best I have ever seen. Any problem was fixed fast. The clothes lines were brilliant. Plenty of room for everyone.
As opposed to camping at Yulara - these guys have 3 campgrounds close to them, so they work at making you feel welcome and it works.

We stayed at the MacDonnell Range caravan park for a few day before heading off to Victoria to catch up with family and have done so a few times in the past.

Located on Palm Circuit just off the Ross river highway turnoff on the right and before the Gap which heads into Alice Springs.
A big park with cabins, large powered and unpowered camping sites are available.

Available during the high season, expect a variety of talks, cheese/wine nights and their famous popular pancake breakfast on Sundays.

It is definitely the best park to stay in while visiting Alice Springs and the surrounding area.
Clean amenities, great BBQ areas, camp kitchen, small supply shop, fuel, 3 pools which includes a children's pool, playground, jumping pillow- the list goes on.
To top it off, enjoy the sunset over the West MacDonnell ranges with a glass of wine.
Brilliant!!!

We spent about 5 days at this caravan park and it was an excellent park. It is just south of the Alice with a 5 minute drive into town. Good sites with clean facilities. There is a pancake stall near the entrance and they make great pancakes and other delicacies. There is usually some entertainment on some nights with a didgeridoo player while we stayed there.
