We spent our New Years Eve at this park....I think we were the only ones who managed to stay awake until Midnight....It's a small friendly park which is well maintained and good value.
We stayed 3 nights with our camper trailer...the sites are large and include drive through site which is very handy. It's not a huge park but we like it like there....when we were there it was mainly older couples either travelling to or from Queensland.
There is a nice area to walk your dog and you are within walking distance to the local club for a meal which is quite good value and very tasty.
The amenities block at the park was spotlessly clean and the showers were hot and water pressure good.
They have an attraction onsite called the fossil hut which contains the fossil of a huge fish...you get free entry when you stay at the park....this was quite nice until we found out it was a replica and not the real thing...as were most of the other samples in the hut but at least it's free :)
The Park is also situated on the road to the lookout and I highly recommend it as you can see for miles. There is also a weir nearby which is great for fishing and swimming and having a picnic....There is a bbq and a covered table with seats.
All in all I would recommend Peak Hill Caravan Park for it's proximity to the Dish at Parkes and also Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo and it also helps support our smaller towns.
