This park is a few k's south of Port Douglas which is a tad inconvenient but nice surroundings. Staff on arrival were very helpful and booked our reef cruise day for us. The camp sites seem overbooked though and we were put down a slope with a mismatch of power leads and power boxes linked to each other by extension cords to provide dodgy power to campers paying the same rates as everyone else! Every time someone boiled their jug or used too much power, the power went off for us all in the surrounding campsites on these boxes! You couldn't use air con or anything that used too much electricity for fear of cutting you and your neighbours power! Not satisfactory and in NZ would be illegal. Not sure what Aus rules are for this sort of thing. Noisy digger working which made lots of dust for some campers, luckily not us or I would have been expressing my displeasure big time as we weren't told about the earthworks on checking in. Nice new shower rooms and amenities. Nice spot if they sort the power out!!
