We are currently staying at the Shady Glen Caravan Park Darwin NT. I can't understand why people give it negatives reviews. We have been here about 8 days so far. We have a lovely shady caravan site with plenty of nice green grass around. The staff have been friendly and helpful. There is plenty of room between vans. The amenities are cleaned very well daily however because the park is full they do get a bit grubby by night time. I sometimes think some people can make more of an effort to clean up after themselves.
There is some noise from the planes taking off and arriving but I personally am not affected by this. You get used to it after a while. The shop is stocked with everything you may need if you do not want to go out and find a Supermarket. The pool is great but a little small for the size of the park. They have built a lovely big dining hall and each night you can go to an all you can eat buffet for $25.00. There is a little bit of construction going on at the moment however that is well away from the caravan sites. That will all be over in a couple of weeks when the new cabins open. We have friends staying in the cabins and they are clean, modern and well maintained.
The park is close to Darwin and tour pickups and there is a bus stop outside for those who don't want to take the car. .
Overall I am enjoying my stay at this park.
