  • Had a very pleasant stay here over the October long weekend. It was the first time for our group to this camp ground and only found out about this site through word of mouth (didn't come up on our ini...  read more »
  • This is my second time camping at Coolendel and I would still go back again! Not the cheapest park to stay at, but for the money you get a lovely grassy campground with clean amenities. We drove in wi...  read more »
  • Visited for the first time in over 20 years, this place has been improved on without destroying the charm of bush camping and native animals. Great for families and all groups. The amenities are moder...  read more »
  • Really enjoyed the open spans of the grounds and that you weren't restricted to set limits of area that the grounds prefer you to camp within. However. Do not camp there over New Years eve. We had a pretty ordinary experience with my family when a troupe of inconsiderate people rolled in just for the NYE celebrations and let off what I would class as Commercial grade fireworks right through to 1.30 am, which given my distance from the main detonation, still hurt my ear drums. Im surprised that the intensity of these explosions didn't kill any of the wonderful Peacocks, Goanna's and Wombats that frequent the camp grounds. Apart from a few other acts that were totally inappropriate for my teenage daughters viewing (in plain sight), I was pretty disappointed with the way the park Managers handled the situation. They were absent when they should have stepped up and dealt with the situation or if it was out of their capability, rang the police and then immediately ejected them from the grounds so that families who were enjoying their annual holiday could have enjoyed the serenity that the grounds would have without being left feeling like they being held captive. I would go back, but NEVER over those dates. Just something for any others to consider or for the park managers themselves to read and take notice to do something about it. Shame, as up until that point I would have rated it as a 5 star experience. Perhaps my next visit in the near future will amend my thoughts about this experience and allow me to enjoy the park for all the good parts.
  • Say hello to wombats when you dash to the toilets at night! Talk to the kookaburra sitting on your camp chair. Swim in a natural waterpark. Wake up to the sound of birdsong. Roast marshmallows on the fire. There are toilets and hot showers in the amenities block.
  • Nice grounds, great river swimming. Somebody was using a chainsaw to cut up wood and the manager went around to to camps warning people not to use them in the grounds. After politely advising that we did not know who was using one he squared up to me and threatened to kick out our entire party if we didn't answer his questions. Luckily for him I am a very calm person and did not react to his aggression - will not be visiting again after nearly a decade of yearly easter patronage due to his attitude.
  • A bit pricey but throughly enjoyed my 2 night stay where i meet my first wombat ( which were plentiful ) . Would recommend to people looking to experience some of Australias east coast wildlife
  • Nice and easy, lots of visible wildlife
