Worth the price especially compared to all other caravan parks we have stayed at. Friendly, courteous staff. Grassed sites. Huge clean bathrooms. Well maintained, clean camp kitchens. Well stocked shop. Outskirts of town, in quiet location .

The older lady behind the counter was so accommodating and friendly when we got to reception on closing at 7pm. It was a spur of the moment decision to stay & she couldn't have been nicer which was great after a long trip. The amenities where top notch & rest of the staff were really good to deal with. So...

Very friendly staff and one of the best parks we've seen. Waterslide and pool facilities are great for the kids. A minor issue are some feral permanent residents. Sites are very well maintained and the ensuites are very clean.

Wow!! We had been staying in a lot of caravan parks during our holiday to the red centre and this one was by far the best. We stayed on a grassed powered site. The site was large and had plenty of room for our vehicle as well. The facilities here are amazing, everything is so clean and well cared for,... More

A very friendly park with great facilities for both adults and children. Great swimming pool with a slide for kids, even my 70 plus husband had a go! Sites are very well organised and there is plenty of room. Amenities very clean, surrounds, gardens great. One small problem is the stealing from unlocked cars by the locals, everyone is warned...

We stayed in the motel style accomodation. The rooms were fantastic 2 bedrooms, one double, one twin. The kitchen had everything could need, it was clean and modern. The bath room was the same and had a modern washing machine and dryer. The lounge/dining area was comfortable. I could recommend this Big4 highly enough. The staff were friendly and helpful....

Great Park. Large sites. Everything you need to entertain kids. Good clean ablutions blocks. Plenty of shade. Overlooked by the McDonnell range. Pretty. A bit dearer than usual but we are happy. Only drawback was the noisy muscle cars in town for the NATS weekend. Good for the town but pure rev heads
