Stayed overnight in an ensuite site. The ensuite was clean (no soap or bathmat) and the shower had good water pressure. The staff were friendly & check-in was quick. We happened to be there on a Friday night when they put on a “gold coin donation” sausage sizzle and had an enjoyable time meeting & chatting to other campers/caravaners. The...

Decided to stop here on our way to Alice Springs. Stayed an extra night because the facilities met my requirements. Clean, great water pressure for showers, plenty of sites with space in between. The pool was lovely, very cold for the hot day and refreshing plus you could swim laps in it. Short laps but still laps, I don't care...

Very easy access and quite good, most of these Discovery parks are older Big 4 Parks. The managers are doing their best but the majority of the Discovery parks are showing their age. Roads needs upgrade, because of drought they have stones on most sites. Playarea looked pretty good and small pool, Camp Kitchen was immaculate and well maintained.

We have stayed at this park in the week prior to Christmas for the past 6 years as our last stopover place where we purchase groceries before we reach our Eyre Peninsula holiday destination and it is A+. The amenities are very welcome especially when it comes to experiencing driving days of high 30's, nothing beats that pool! Best cabin...

Driving over from Perth, most of our stays were one or two days so we wanted a park where we could quickly set up our caravan and in this park it's great. Drive thru gravel sites are easy to access and set up. The ablution block is very clean and gives great showers which were appreciated. Reception staff very helpful...

Stayed here for one night after driving up from Adelaide. It was a nice and tidy place with good parking spots for our two campers. Clean facilities, hot showers with really good pressure. Pool was good too. Really enjoyed our stay

We stayed for one night in a Cabin. The accommodation was what would be expected for such a decent price $76.65. Spacious, clean and comfortable. There were a lot of ants in the bathroom, and I left my makeup bag open in there, but there were warnings about the ants so that was my bad. Cabin didn't have a balcony...
