“Well Cared for Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

This immaculate Park is located on the outskirts of Charters Towers. Well maintained good sized shady sites for Caravans, tents and camper trailers. You will need your car to drive to all the tourist sights and shopping. Friendly staff with great location near the Golf Course. Golf Buggy's available to hire.

Stayed on a powered grass site which backed on to the golf course. Nice spacious site close to well maintained amenities. Not a bad walk into town if you are energetic. Friendly staff and golf clubs available to hire at reasonable price for a hit next door.

Location 'next to Golf course' was our decision to stay here and it was a good one..lovely shady, good sized sites. Amenities were kept spotless with a lovely touch of fresh flowers along with a 'looked after' pot plant. Staff were friendly and informative and kept busy maintaining the grounds and camp-kitchen (which was always spotless) Excellent barbecues are organized on a regular basis, there is a charge, but goes to that remarkable service - the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
A Park that we will return to...

Room Tip: Ask for a site near the camp-kitchen or back fence

After a long day of travelling and after reading the brochure which suggested this was 'the friendliest' park we were disappointed in the offhand welcome and after being told there was a seniors discount it was not given. On questioning this the next day I was given a half hearted 'oh sorry but I can't refund it now'
The cabin was very box like and not really big enough for 3 adults although
Full price of $120 was charged. It was clean but the floor looked like it had been mopped with a dirty mop.
A bit disappointing.

This is one of the best caravan parks we've stayed in. Due to problems with our vehicle we stayed for almost a month and were continually impressed with the high standard of cleanliness and attention to detail at this park. The staff are friendly and helpful and respond cheerfully and efficiently to all requests. The amenities are maintained to an impressive standard, with fresh flowers on the hand basins, and are checked by staff regularly during the day. The grounds are also impeccable. There is a large and well-equipped camp kitchen. The park owners and staff work hard to make all travellers feel welcome with regular happy hours, scrumptious morning teas and scheduled barbecues to raise funds for the Royal Flying Doctor Service. We highly recommend this park.

We paid $90 for a cabin that had mould all over walls,hole through tolet door,lino chipped and lifting. Bed bugs which we have red bites and rashes still two days later.When I booked the cabin I was told it was the last cabin and one of the older ones.This does not excuse the third world condition.I had my 13Yo Daughter with me and we had played a netball carnival all Day so was very tired and just wanted to put head down,otherwise we would have walked strait out and asked for money back and gone elsewhere.Have plenty of Photos but cannot upload will only upload link to my Computor.

We stayed for two nights in a cabin. The cabin was fitted for four people: two adults, two kids. Room, bathroom and beds were very clean. A plus is the jumping pillow for kids. We payed 135 AUS$ per night, which was o.k. value for money. The caravan park was well organized and clean. We stayed in the wintertime (July) and it gets surprisingly cold in the evening, so be prepared to use the provided electric heater. Overall, this campground is fine for an overnight stay, but we wouldn’t recommend it for longer.
