We stayed 6 nights and really enjoyed our time here. Our site was not particularly shady but several others were. It was a good base for Darwin and surrounding districts. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Recommend staying here. Handy service station just outside the park.

Top spot chose a rear site quiet at this time of year. Close to pool, utilities. You can catch a #8 bus to downtown Darwin for a $1 with a seniors card. Used this service to visit Mindil Markets. Staff very welcoming and helpful.

Stayed in a 2 bedroom chalet 3 nights. The welcome was warm & friendly & check in good. The chalet was clean & spacious. The park is neatly laid out. The park is set out in 3 different areas & we had a look at each one. It is a very large park by comparison to a lot of others....

I stayed here again for 5 days and had a fantastic time! The pool was lovely and the staff were very friendly as usual 😄 I can highly recommend staying in a resort cabin as you can lay in bed and watch TV at night!

I have stayed in almost every type of room available over many years and have 4 bookings there for this year already. Always friendly, very helpful, great food even when busy and a nice place for a walk or swim. Gardens are amazing, rooms always clean. Great place for a family stay. The kids love the pool and bouncy pillow....

All in all a good stay. Grassy, shady non-powered site for the tent was great. Free drink voucher on arrival. $35/night is starting to get a bit steep for tent accommodation though. The park is well maintained and staff were good to deal with. Easy drive to where ever you want to go from here. I'd stay again.

Stayed here in a powered site overnight. The pools are lovely and clean and the perfect temperature. The service at the cafe was great. Being from Adelaide we had never seen a toad before and this place has them in the bucket load, a true sight to see.

Neat and tidy self contained cabins. Brilliant pool/restaurant/bar area which the whole family will enjoy. Pretty central to airport and Darwin city area plus on one of the main roads that sends you out to the national parks and places like Katherine. Prices are good and staff are very helpful.
