“Great drive through site”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

A lot of work has been done creating this little oasis. We enjoyed the camp fire, camp kitchen, amenities were very clean, the trees that have been planted. But best of all we loved the drive through camp sites that have been created. We travel with a group of around 20 every May for the Hawker races and thoroughly enjoy our time there. However this trip the cabins have all been removed which meant some of our group had to stay in the other caravan park which wasn't good for them. Well done to the new owners for all their hard work. We don't have young children but the new play equipment looked like fun.

We stayed here for 2 nights in late April. Our first day was hot and we enjoyed a dip in the pool . Our 2nd day was wet but we were still able to go and do our Flinders Experience day trip. Hawker was great, a friendly town and the camp owners were really helpful and informative. This visit was a real highlight of our 2 weeks in SA. Our cabin was spotless, well appointed and we really noticed the great quality here having stayed in 4 other camps on our tour

I was amazed how friendly the staff was and the effort they produced to make sure our stay over Easter weekend was enjoyable and care free This is where we will stay when we go back to Hawker.. There was not enough time to take in all that Hawker and surrounding area has to offer. They put us on a site to handle our Caravan, Tent & vehicles. Nice central spot for sight seeing, or 4x4 driving (not to extreme), looking at the wild life.

We used the park as a base while visiting the area. The park is very tidy and clean. The ablutions block the same. Pam and John have the time to answer questions about the area and towns and roads to where we were heading. Yes we would recommend this park and would stay
there again.

We spent two nights here and were very impressed with the place and the facilities. Bearing in mind, you are in the middle of nowhere, the camp is clean, the BBQ area has a seating area with an outdoor flatscreen TV - as we were travelling in a camper van, this was a bit of luxury for us. There is a separate communal kitchen area, with fridge, taster, kettle and flat screen TV too.The showers were fine - but the best was a well maintained swimming pool - and when returning from the outback, is a very welcome experience. Highly recommended - good facilities too for kiddies.

We appreciate your kind words, and yes, the pool is a big hit, especially when the temperature nudges the 40 mark, which it did while you were here. I hope you enjoy the rest of your visit to Australia.

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.
