I loved this park and the area. The zoo was great. Dinner at the local pub and listening to a great band made a great Friday night. The managers were excellent. The town was quite busy due to a fishing competition being on that weekend,
Stayed for 4 nights 1 - 4 August 2014. Quiet park on the bank of the Murrumbidgee River. Very good level grass sites wide enough to park next to the van with the awning out. A number of sites are drive through. All roads are sealed. There are 2 shower blocks and laundry. The toilets and showers are clean. One block has just been renovated and the second is in the process of renovation. There are cabins available, have not seen inside so can't comment. Jeff and Liz run the park, they are friendly, helpful and keen to improve the park. No camp kitchen at present. Jeff said he has plans for 2 kitchen and some new cabins. Will definitely stay again and keen to see future improvements. Reasonable rate of $25 per night.
We called in for one night on the 5th September 2013, and ended up staying 2 nights at $25 for the 1st night and then $20 for the second. The manager was courteous, very friendly and loved a chat. Sold the Darlington Point area very well. Informed us of everything that was available in the area especially the zoo which was brilliant. Facilities are old but very clean and tidy. You can park in the front area on lush grass sites or go to the back area like we did and park overlooking the river. Very peaceful and hard to fault.
I think it is time the managers of this park move on. They are not at all interested in tourists, just permanant residents and backpackers. Staff were unfriendly, and unhelpful. Only one washing machine, that was always busy with the managers washing. Dirty laundry and toilets. Backpackers were using laundry to cook in, as there is no suitable camp kitchen. Overpriced for the facilities offered.
Very unimpressed with this caravan park, and in particular, the management. I stayed there 2 weeks ago, (Good Friday) and was charged $35 less for the same cabin that I booked into for this weekend. When I queried the price difference, assuming that Easter is a 'peak period', I was told, very rudely, that the price increase is due to 'electricity increases'. I think 35 per night is a ridiculous increase, especially given the sub-standard conditions of these cabins. Needless to say, I stayed in the cheaper, cleaner and much friendlier cabins at the other end of town.
