“Small but clean and modern”
Reviewed 26 December 2012

It was a lovely small camping with chalets located off the main road, along the road to Mt. Warning. Our chalet was small but had 2 bedrooms, one with Queen bed and one with bunk bed. Although small, it had functional, well equipped kitchen, dining table, 2 seater and 1 seater sofa as well as lovely porch with a table and 4 chairs. We stayed 3 nights and liked it very much. It was conveniently located to Gold Coast (1h) and to waterfalls in the nearby parks.
Wifi was available at the reception. There was also small swimming pool ideal for a dip or splashing if you have a toddler with you.
Clean, good quality fittings in the chalet and pleasant surroundings, overall very decent place to stay for few nights.

We had one of those chalets close to the river, nothing romantic though. quite basic but ok for a few days. pricey though. they got a pool you can use and wifi at the reception. phone reception very sketchy. there are plenty of places you can visit by car 1-3 hours from there though. very nice drives.

The campsite and caravan facilities were really well appointed for being so close to the rainforest. A few travellers in caravans and backpackers and there was plenty of room available. Would not like to come here in busy periods as it would be crowded as everyone else would like to come and be so close to nature too.

The camp kitchen and facilites were excellent, hot showers were also available.

Mobile telephone reception is patchy but there is free WiFi in front of the office and public telephone is also available. Some local cafes/restaurants are within walking distance close by too.

Still need a car to get to the carpark at Mt Warning as it is ~4kms further up the road.

Enjoyed two nights here.

A simple, quiet caravan park that still has all the amenities you need. Very clean. The staff are so lovely and laid back and willing to help out however they can. We stayed on a non-powered site next to the creek up the end of the park and had such a tranquil, relaxing time that left us feeling reconnected with nature. The Mount Warning cling is a must. Leave 4 hours and wear sensible shoes.

We stayed at Mt Warning Rainforest Park over the October long week-end and were disappointed. The position is excellent being close to Mt Warning and there is a great little cafe within walking distance. This place is OK to put up with so you can get an early start on the walk up to Mt Warning. However, we would not stay there again for a long week-end. People were packed in, we had tents encroaching on our site and our friends' site. This was because there were five tents put on the adjacent site!! (all on the one site). We were also surprised to see that there were even tents on the footpath as you drove into the park. We were so packed in that some people had to wait for others to leave before they could actually get their camper trailers off their site. The amenities were clean but totally inadequate for the amount of people that were staying there that week-end. There were basically 2 female showers and toilets and 2 mens showers and toilets for hundreds of campers. My son had to pee in the bushes as he was unable to hold as long as he had to wait to get into a toilet. Also, in the female bathrooms only one shower would be hot at a time so really there was only one shower!!! There was a family bathroom but it was filthy with mud and I wouldn't take the kids in there to shower.
When you go to a place like Mt Warning you go to enjoy being in the rainforest setting and getting close to nature. This place was worse than being in the city with the amount of people crammed in. On the positive side, our fellow camper were generally considerate and the camp ground was quite at night after about 10.30 p.m. Such a great location it is a shame that management go for making as much money as possible over the long week-end without taking into consideration their campers' comfort

Room Tip: Don't go over busy periods.

, Manager at Mt Warning Rainforest Park, responded to this review, 18 October 2012
Hi Hapicamper, thanks for your time and comments, long weekends are a concern to us here at Mt Warning Rainforest Park, the number of people who want to be here for these short few days is encouraging however to catering for everyones needs and satisfaction in not always met and we are sorry to not have met your standards. The site layout was designed in the early 70's when campers had one car and a small tent, now camper have large tents and camper trailers trying to fit on small sites, policy is one tent and one car per site, however because of this reason we allow repeat customers to book 2 sites or 3 sites between 2 parties.

The campers at the enterance to the park are 'on sites' and these sites are generally overlooked as most campers prefer to be out in the wilderness section. The issue of the amenties is an ongoing concern and we would like to have more toilets and showers in the wilderness area, our longer term goal, at the moment is to encourage camper to use the main amentities block situated in the main park. With the extra number of campers here over the long weekend we use this money to cover the costs of extra activities we put on, such as a Wildlife Walks and Reptile Shows. Then on New Years Eve we will have a live band for guests of the Park, and at Easter more activites organised.

And indeed, being a family friendly Park, guests are usually extremely accommodating and considerate to one another.

I would encourage you to come back to this peaceful and beautiful environment another weekend to experience the contrast between high and low seasons. .

Regards...

Stayed in a camper trailer for five nights in the wilderness area. The facilities are good for campers, the staff are friendly and welcoming without being intrusive and the location is lovely. Plenty of things to do within a short drive (or even shorter walk) and the village of Uki is close and well worth a visit. Or feel free to do nothing and just relax. Not an option for me, camping with a five year old to keep entertained, but even that was not difficult. There's clearly work underway to refurbish the park, which is needed in parts, but it's fine now. Will definitely be back.

We camped at Mt Warning Rainforest Park during Easter. We have 3 children & we all loved our stay. The setting is beautiful.There was plenty to see and do. The facilities were well maintained. A real bonus for our family was being able to sit around a campfire at night, as you are unable to do this at many parks where we have stayed. We found the Manager Mark & all the staff to be really friendly and helpful, even during one of their busiest times! I recommend this park to fellow campers, we will definitely be returning!
