Advance bookings are advisable: we try to give our camping guests large camp sites and plenty of space, for every long weekend and holiday period we usually turn away many people.  This is because we seek to avoid overcrowding our camp sites.

Our camp-sites are much larger than city camp sites.  Each site can easily accommodate two to three families.  So when you book, just book one site for the minimum (which is two people).  Because you have already booked a site, your friends and family who may be joining you will not need to book.  They can pay upon arrival when they check in.  When you book, if your anticipated guest numbers are large, then please type into the notes field as you make your on-line booking how many you expect to have joining you, and we will get back to you and confirm that your plans are OK, or if you will need to book a second site.

Our personal commitment to our guests is that we will strive to ensure our guests receive a high quality and personal service, that our guests have enjoyed the experience and want to come back and visit us again.

DAY RATES: Rates for non-guests seeking to use our lakeside beach area are $7.00 per head.   This entitles members of the public to set up a day tent on the beach, to launch their boat, swim, etc, and to generally enjoy the lake environment.  In addition, the day rate fee entitles non-guests to use our toilets, showers and the other facilities of the Holiday Park such as ice purchase, drink, etc.

BUSH CAMPING –  4WD ACCESS COMING SOON

For those who like to get away from it all, we have over 220 acres of bush land.   Our bush camping areas are located at higher altitudes on the mountain above the Maroon Dam and our holiday park.   They enjoy magnificent views, where those who are so inclined can enjoy the peace and solitude of the outback with no other people in the vicinity.   All bush camp sites command superb vistas of the Scenic Rim mountains and the Maroon Dam.   Because of their comparative height, computer and phone reception on these sites is generally pretty good. no Vehicle access. Hiking and carrying gear is the only way to access these areas. Coming soon 4WD access.

IF YOU WANT A PARTICULAR CAMP SITE:

When you are making an on-line booking for an unpowered camp site, you can request the camp site you want; but, when you make your booking, type in the “special requests” field the approximate numbers you expect to have in your party.  We will do our best to meet your request.

However, the allocation of camp sites is ALWAYS PROVISIONAL only.   The final allocation of camp sites will be made just prior the date you are due to arrive.  The allocation of camp sites is dependent upon considerations such as weather, the condition of the grass, and when other guests are due to arrive and depart, etc.  Larger camp sites are obviously allocated to larger parties.  We will tell you  what camp site you have been allocated when you check-in, and we will take you to your camp site.

We generally allocate the more sought after camp sites to guests staying for a longer period.

Camp fires are permitted, but fires must only be lit inside the fire rim provided.  All camp sites have a fire rim or fire drum.  Firewood can either be purchased $10.00 a bag from the kiosk or purchased from roadside stalls as you drive along Burnett Creek road towards our park.
