Pam and John were very helpful and they kept the place so worth coming back too and will definitely come back. John was so kind to allow us to check out late and even book us one more nite in advance when we were undecided wether to stay or go.
Like he know that we are going to stay for another night.
Pam was so great to allow our nephews and nieces who live around there to spend time with us in the pool. And I have never spent so much time it the pool accept at the BIG4. What are place to cool down and chillaxing in the hot sun.
The room was great, for families of four children, they have bunk beds to accommodate you in..Such an experience and being close to the Flinders Range is a BIG PLUS!!
Feel free to ask them if you're new in there.

Room Tip: Does not matter on the room, either way they are still perfect, but the one closer to the pool and f...

Thank you for your review and I am pleased you had a great time in the Flinders Ranges. All our cabins have conventional size beds, either single, double or queen. Where possible we supply a queen bed in preference to a double. We are currently renovating the 2 berth cabins and they will be ready at the end of January, complete with queen size beds.

Booked a 2 bedroom cabin for 2 nights, was fantastic for where we were. People were very friendly, knowledgeable on the local area and very helpful. Cabin was very clean with all the basic comforts. The towels were even soft! Playground was great, Pool was cold, Amenities were very clean. Didn't use the camp kitchen but it looked great also.

Flies!!!!!! Ok that isn't the parks problem but still put a dampner on our trip. Horrendous.

Great facilities, and central to explore the flinders ranges. Owners very helpful. The pool was a godsend for our hot day and a good break from the flies.

Only negative was that the toilets near BBQ area weren't cleaned one day while we were there so there was no loo paper for a whole day.

Would still recommend this as a great park to stay at.

Thank you for your review, I am glad you enjoyed the pool even though you did have to share it with the three trillion flies that passed our way while you were here. Fortunately for us they have moved on to some other poor person now. Our apologies for the back toilet being neglected for a time during your stay, we have taken on board your feedback and now have tweaked our procedures to avoid this happening again. We hope to welcome you back again.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin for 3 nights over two stays. It is a great base to visit the Flinders Ranges and as a stop over between Arkaroola and the Barossa.
The cabin was neat and clean and was equipped with all the basic comforts of home. Even an extra tv in the bedroom. We were greeted with a lovely smile at reception and offered maps and sights to view in the area. Our 2nd car was suitably accommodated close to the cabin also. We quickly purchased fly nets as they were a MUST. Thanks for a great stay.

Our family occupied 3 sites in tents for a family holiday. The park was clean, had a great BBQ area, camp kitchen, good playground for the kids, and a pool that the kids loved but I couldn't put my feet in as it was so cold! Our sites had ensuites which were basic but great (no treks across the park with kids for toilet stops in the middle of the night).

We adjusted our expectations after discovering there was no takeaway in the area and managed to self cater for our five night stay.

Would consider this place again if we return to the Flinder's, perhaps try out a cabin if the weather was colder.

The park was neat, clean and tidy. We stayed in a cabin that was quiet allowing us to relax and enjoy our holiday. We found the location ideally situated permitting us to visit all of the Central Flinders points of interest. The Managers were friendly and helpful providing suggestions of places to visit.
