We were going to stay several nights at Eureka, but the warning signs were already there on arrival....at the entrance gate we were stopped and asked to sign-in (very good), but while we were doing so a local car tried to get past security at speed - the security guy managed to stop them (but only just). Reception is in the bar - the barman is locked inside a heavy steel cage - this seemed suspicious for a campsite.....
The campsite itself is surrounded by chalets, creating the effect of being squeezed together, particularly when "overland" buses arrive with large groups.
The ablutions just aren't large enough to cope with the quantity of people using them (in the mens there are only 2 toilets and 3(?) showers - for a campsite/dorms that could potentially have over 70 people staying! Even when quite empty there were long queues in the morning.
After dark a large group of locals arrived, pitched a couple of tents and started to party. The noise level started to rise until by 10pm it could only be described as loud. By midnight there was bedlam on the campsite with youths running all over shouting and screaming. They then started to approach other campers vehicles at which point security were called - the one security guy was....in the bar!!!!! Security and management did very little to calm the situation, so campers and people in chalets were forced to guard their vehicles themselves until the gang decided to break up at around 2am.
The management explained that "they had paid to be there, so they had the right to be there"!!!!
We left and went to Pioneer Camp on the other side of town - totally different!
