We stayed at Mt Warning Rainforest Park over the October long week-end and were disappointed. The position is excellent being close to Mt Warning and there is a great little cafe within walking distance. This place is OK to put up with so you can get an early start on the walk up to Mt Warning. However, we would not stay there again for a long week-end. People were packed in, we had tents encroaching on our site and our friends' site. This was because there were five tents put on the adjacent site!! (all on the one site). We were also surprised to see that there were even tents on the footpath as you drove into the park. We were so packed in that some people had to wait for others to leave before they could actually get their camper trailers off their site. The amenities were clean but totally inadequate for the amount of people that were staying there that week-end. There were basically 2 female showers and toilets and 2 mens showers and toilets for hundreds of campers. My son had to pee in the bushes as he was unable to hold as long as he had to wait to get into a toilet. Also, in the female bathrooms only one shower would be hot at a time so really there was only one shower!!! There was a family bathroom but it was filthy with mud and I wouldn't take the kids in there to shower.
When you go to a place like Mt Warning you go to enjoy being in the rainforest setting and getting close to nature. This place was worse than being in the city with the amount of people crammed in. On the positive side, our fellow camper were generally considerate and the camp ground was quite at night after about 10.30 p.m. Such a great location it is a shame that management go for making as much money as possible over the long week-end without taking into consideration their campers' comfort
