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...

My family loved this place so much! Close enough to walk to town. We stayed in a very well priced, spotless ensuite site. Kids stay free. Great pool, loads of room for the kids to ride around, playground, TV room and games room. Great camp kitchen with everything you need. Free Friday night sausage sizzle and free pancakes Sunday morning...

We stayed for 2 nights in a standard cabin. We got a discount as we couldn't stay for the desired time in the economy cabins. So price was around $100 a night, not sure what the original price was. Everything was clean and neat and well looked after. Can't really go wrong with Big4 parks. As it rained, it would...
