“Love this park!”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

We have just left Cairns after a two week stay at this park and I must say it has been the most pleasant visit of the three times we've been there. The new owners are so helpful and friendly, they couldn't have done more to make our stay restful and stress free. We were booked into a powered site which was shady and private while my son and daughter stayed in a cabin which they found clean and comfortable. The grounds are just lovely, very lush and green - the pool area and camp kitchen are set out beautifully with a spacious seating area which was very popular with everyone there. The park is situated in a lovely part of Cairns, close to the lake, tourist areas and very close to the supermarkets and a short drive to the CBD and airport. We are travelling with two little dogs and had no problem with them at all so we were all happy! I would not hesitate to recommend this park and we will certainly be returning in the future. Thanks Roger and Michelle!!

We booked to stay a couple of nights and ended up staying a week. (3 powered sites). this park is fantastic, it's quiet and peaceful and tucked away at the bottom of the ranges, so it doesn't feel like you are just minutes from the city. it runs along the side of the Barron river, and you can access fishing on the river a short stroll away. Lake placid itself has crocs in it so no swimming, and no pets down there as its a NP. But you can have pets in the caravan park as long as you keep them on a lead and don't leave them in the park alone. Smithfield shopping centre is 3kms away and has everything you need, including a Dan Murphy's liquor store. the toilet blocks were clean and well maintained and the park has a family feel. The pool area is lovely and great to cool off in the heat of the tropics. The place is run by a family and we found them incredibly nice and helpful, and a wealth of information about tours, we went with their recommendations and it really paid off. The office sells drinks and icecreams and a few groceries. It has heaps of info on tours and you can book them all right there. A short walk away there is a great little store/ shop,selling block and cubed ice as well as groceries etc, really friendly in there too. Give these guys ten out of ten!

It was our last night in our camper van and we didn't want to spend it in the city. This place is just perfect, near to the lake. There is a big kitchen wz electric cooker, microwave oven, big fridge, toaster and a boiler. Of course barbecue area next to the pool. The owners were really friendly and we could choose our place( it was during the low season).amenities were clean!
