"This caravan park is definitely not for the faint hearted, located 4kms off the Stuart Highway approximately half way between Tennant Creek and Katherine NT.Its main attraction is the Pub and that it is one of the oldest on the track to Darwin, and is renown for its Barra and Steak meals ($25) per person.The caravan park offers 48 power sites @ $20 per night and over 80 unpowered sites with the ability to open up spare areas adjacent to the park, which we where advised has been done quite often.There is a facility to refill your tanks with palatable water, unfortunately the park does not have any dump facilities.Due to the high number of visitors they certainly pack the vans in and you will be lucky to get your awning out, there are six toilet/shower facilities but with so many vans they don’t stay clean for long.If you are looking for a 4 star caravan park don’t visit this park, however if your looking for a experience once in a lifetime overnight stop and you don’t mind the crowding and basic facilities, but enjoy the past and an excellent steak and barra meal then give it a go.At night there is entertainment until 9.30 after that the park becomes very quiet, fuel was available at average prices from the want of a better word servo across the road."

We loved it here. The place was filling up quickly when we arrived. They opened up the overflow area. The pool was great on such a hot day. We had the Barra and Steak dinner, it's a must if you stay. Entertainment was a gentleman singing country music. We paid $32 for a powered site.
We must have been lucky as we stayed here on our way back from Darwin, being selfcontained it didn't worry us about the limited facilities, and there wasn't overcrowding. To visit this park is a bit of history and travellers must take this into account and enjoy the moment, and yes the Barra and Steak is not to be missed.
