We needed a long term caravan site option in Cairns and Lake Placid Tourist Park came up trumps. The park is nestled under the mountains and surrounded by lush tropical scenery. We have a 27' 5th wheeler and they gave us a long site with a concrete pad that had plenty of room for our rig and our tow vehicle. Hosts Roger & Michelle and their friendly staff were very helpful and accommodating providing good advice and assistance during the recent cyclone threat. As it turned out the park is in a naturally sheltered location and the effects were minimal, well worth remembering if you are venturing to Cairns in the summer months. Lake Placid is also a pet friendly park and our two cats were also very impressed with the facilities. The amenities were clean and regularly serviced and the pool, a must in Cairns, was beautifully maintained at all times. Lake Placid is a 15 minute drive from Cairns CBD, close to the Skyrail, Kuranda Scenic Railway and has easy access to the Atherton Tableland via the Kennedy highway 5 minutes up the road. The park itself is on the scenic Barron River and on a quiet cul-de-sac with a quality restaurant right next door. The park has excellent tourist info, a small kiosk for those essentials and is 5 minutes from Smithfield shopping centre for the more serious needs. We can thoroughly recommend Lake placid as a great base when you visit Cairns
