“Better than expectations”
Reviewed 5 May 2013

We only stayed the one night, on our way through. Lots of dirt but then that's what the country all about is like. Check out time was later than normal so we took the opportunity to head out to Old Halls Creek and the attractions between that and Halls Creek proper and were still in time. We had heard all sorts of stories about Halls Creek and found them unfounded. The residential noise around is less than other settlements of the type and the amenities were most adequate. We would certainly stay here again if we were passing through, but then quite frankly, there is not a lot of choice. We paid $32.

We stayed 1.night en-route to Broome and though it is a fairly basic park we found no issues with either safety or noise. The book in was friendly, after I found out the lady owner was from Argentine we had a nice chat about Malbec. The facilities are basic but adequate and clean. The price is fair and hey Fitzroy Crossing is not exactly on the Cote D'Azure ! We took a night walk through town and it is a real sad sight to see the sheer hopeless future of our young indiginous people if they stay in these towns. Not a single Aboriginal person was employed anywhere we could see in the Kimberlly region. This is shamefull and an indictment on all the wastefull programs invented by bureaucrats sitting in ivory towers in Perth and Canberra.

As Halls Creek is on the edge of the arid regions do not expect plenty of lush green grass. Nearing the end of the Dry season the caravan park was getting a bit dusty. When we arrived just after lunch it was only half full but by dusk it was fairly full. The staff are friendly and helpful. Toilets and showers were clean though some people insist on wearing the dirty thongs into the showers and not mopping it down afterwards. The property is fenced though you are warned about keeping your property secure. The nearby hotel offers some good meals.

Only four separate thefts by and visits by the police last night... (We were personal victims of one). But this is not a once off event. Overgrown lawn, overpriced, leaves in pool, junkyard...SAFETY is key to a great travelling experience, this is not a place where you will find it. Do not stay here - it is not safe.

Basic accommodation but cleaned each day and very nice lady who was very helpful to me and my family. We were told to pass through Halls Creek but stayed a few extra days even. Loved the area and the art centre and the info centre at Halls is excellent.

We checked into Halls Creek Caravan Park during lunchtime and found all that was available were powered and unpowered sites. This suited us exacty, for we had our own tent, and were happy to pitch it in the largish shady, grassed area. There were a number of conveniently located taps in this spot and the shower/toilet block was a minute's walk away.
The amenities block was probably one of the cleanest I've ever seen in a caravan park, replete with mop & bucket for public use. I saw evidence of people using this to clean up after their showers, which led me to think there are some long-term customers staying here. The lights in the shower block could perhaps be turned on a bit earlier, as I was showering around sunset, and it was already quite dim in the cubicles. Someone came and turned the lights on eventually, when it was pretty much dark outside, so imagine it indoors. The owners should think of perhaps installing motion-sensor lights, or perhaps timed lighting (push vacuum button). This would avoid the lights in the block being kept on all night as well.
The kiosk/shop sells a HUGE variety of goods crammed onto packed shelves. I can hardly imagine what to do with ceramic vases, hair & beauty kits and framed wall paintings when I go camping!! But they also stock various useful household, cleaning and grocery items. Also an impressive (and interesting!) selection of kids' and baby's toys & merchandise.
The lone female staff-member at reception was friendly and informative, even offerring to turn off the lighting in the tent-camping area if it bothered us. This we accepted, however, the caravan park's lighting did not affect us as much as the 24/7 lighting coming from a neighbouring property bordering the tent-camping area. However, this was not the park's fault, but perhaps the questionable neighbourhood in which it finds itself.
There wasn't much evidence of the barbed-wire fencing mentioned in a previous review here, however, maybe we stayed on the wrong (or right?) side of the park. There is a solid aluminium fence around the property, but that is probably to protect its customers, as there was some loud shouting and animated behaviour coming from beyond the fence, out on the streets after dark.
On a final note, there were a couple of pet galahs kept in a big cage near the bbq area which I was sorely tempted to let loose. The term "animal cruelty" kept popping into my mind, even though there was plenty of food and water. The galahs were perhaps once prized pets, and I'm not sure what the permit laws are in Western Australia in terms of keeping native animals as pets. But seeing the desultory state those poor creatures were in, and how starved of attention they seemed, definitely made me want to liberate them. I did not - only on account of my uncertainty of how long they've been in there, and would probably die if let loose into the wild now.
If I had my way again, I would not have stayed in the town of Halls Creek at all, but camped at Caroline Pool - a natural swimming area which allows for 24-hour overnight camping - a few kms out of town. There are no toilet facilities here, but the spot was quite picturesque and tranquil when we visited during late afternoon. Too bad we'd already checked into the caravan park.
All in all, our one-night stay in Halls Creek was acceptable, and allowed us to keep going to our next destination.

Room Tip: Camp free at Caroline Pool, a few kms out of town.
