Great staff, clean toilets and facilities (camp kitchen was out of use when we stayed due to covid but looked fine). Excellent location for the marina and boat tours in and around Fraser Island
On arrival we popped into reception and we greeted a gentleman at the desk whom had little to no enthusiasm for new guests. Gave us a map of the park and a selection of 4 places to park. All spots were in direct sunlight while the rest of the park was shaded by trees. The camp kitchen was fairly decent, although the fridge is fully of random people food including what I think was dog food all outside of properly packed bags. Cooker needed a lighter/match to work. However, toilets and showers were very clean and the laundry is $3. The park is a 30second walk to the bay. At $24 dollars for an unpowered sight a night, it’s an ok stop over but wouldn’t recommend this for backpackers if you’re after any sort of friendly or upbeat vibe.
Quite rundown, camp kitchen is small and not in completely working order (gas hob doesn't ignite) you also need to be 8ft tall to work it as for some reason it's ridiculously high off the ground. The empty beer cans in the kitchen on arrival were still there when we left two days later. About four or five shaded spots under trees available but put into the sun exposed spots which, for a campervan made it unnecessarily hot. The atmosphere was retirement village, and the staff not exactly wowed with customer service. I hate to leave a bad review but it needs some work to bring it up to par with the competition. That said the showers are hot, you have power, cheap laundry ($3) and are right on the marina.
Mainly a YHA/backpackers hostel.
