We had a 2 day stop over here on our trip to Cape York. I got a phone call on our day of arrival enquiring when we were coming. So they could make sure we got in if there office was closed. When we got here lovely staff not only handled our arrival efficiently but very friendly with maps & directions to local tourist sites. Amenities super clean & sites great

Well where do you start, this park can only be described as sensational, The facilities are some of the best you will find in Holiday parks, great pool and BBQ area. Our site was large for our motorhome and gave us plenty of space to relax for the 2 days we were at the park. The park was so quiet and full so it was enjoyable for all to relax, The bathrooms are what you expect in a 4 star hotel not a caravan park so congratulations to the owners and managers on providing a great spot for a couple of days.

Great amenities (unisex) with toilet and shower in same room. Nice gardens, very helpful staff. Camper trailer site was a bit tight to back in but we managed. Park was well maintained and very quiet at night . Would certainly recommend this park to all

Boy, when you've been tenting for a while and open the door to these bathrooms, you are in female heaven. Bigger than our tent, these bathrooms were your own private ensuite, huge shower, toilet, basin and bench, large mirror. Immaculately clean. Would stay here just for the bathrooms. Our tent site was not so good, large enough spot but backed onto main road so noise and security was a problem.

Room Tip: Ask for a spot away from main road inside the park for a more restful and greener environment

Large sites, good location (although cooktown is a small place so nowhere is far away anyway), great camp kitchen right next to the beautiful pool. But the amenities are what makes this place really good, they are individual bathrooms with toilet, basin and shower in the one room. We have young children and showering with them can be an awful experience at some places where the stalls are small. This set up really worked for us.
