The park is situated on the northern approach to St George. As well as six hundred trees and shrubs planted around the park there are already 30 lawn drive through and powered sites.

The camp kitchen, which features free barbecues, fridges and cooking facilities is a popular meeting place with ample seating and pleasant views. Those who enjoy yarning around the campfire appreciate the logs and novel heater.

All van sites are huge with Pelican Rest boasting there’s ‘No Rig too Big’ for the park. Set on two hectares of a 16 hectare block, guests enjoy the relaxed and peaceful atmosphere of this spacious park environment. Check out the native trees and shrubs, observe the birds and kangaroos who sometimes visit or gaze at the magnificent sunsets without leaving the park.

The amenities block is spacious and well appointed with disabled bathroom and laundromat included. The park’s dump point is easily accessed. With wide bitumen roads throughout the park, parking vans is a breeze even for the novice.
