We are not campers so Mungo Lodge is the comfortable alternative for an overnight stay to get the most out of a visit to Mungo National Park. The Lodge is very close to the park. It provides very comfortable accommodation. The restaurant is OK - should not expect too much at such a remote location, but they offer a small selection of good meals. There is no mobile phone or internet connection. It's more expensive than similar motel accommodation in larger centres, but the cost of providing such accommodation in such a remote location can't be cheap. The management were very flexible with our travel plans which were dictated by whether the road to Mungo was open.

Room Tip: The cabins are located in a crescent, all convenient to the main lodge building.

Called in for a coffee after spending the day at the Sandhills. The dining area was gorgeous, spotlessly clean and so comfortable. It would be lovely to go when the big fires were roaring. Dinner menu sounded lovely but we were camping at the adjoining campground so didn't stay.

We spent the weekend at Mungo Lodge as part of a flying trip with 6 other couples..(strip is conveniently located next to the accommodation)
The dining area/licensed restaurant is impressive - especially if you consider how remote the location. Beck and Glen were amazing hosts, as was young Lillian. We were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much bother.
Accommodation was clean, showers hot and food delicious and plentiful. A thunderstorm even provided a spectacular lightning display.
Hiring the small bus enabled us to tour the lake and Walls of China.
Would recommend this location to other aviators looking for a weekend away

Our Probus Club last week visited Mungo National Park and stayed overnight at the Lodge. Apart from the lodges and dining area being so high in quality, the managers were very welcoming and put on a great meal at night and breakfast. Congratulations to this couple for doing such a great job and answering all our curious questions about how they manage out there. Service was fantastic. Thankyou.

Mungo NP is a long way out (>90 km of dirt road) and to find a lovely lodge is great. Obviously it is not 'inexpensive'. The physical facilities are lovely. They are complete with 240v power, fridges, even air con.

There is a licensed restaurant that can provide breakfast lunch and dinner, and even a private (dirt) airstrip for those able to fly in. All this just 2km from the (dried) lake bed and visitors centre.

Unfortunately the welcome we received was 'some what dry' as well. To be greeted by a 'No we don’t have any booking for you' – blank stare and silence ! was a little off putting. Having retrieved the paper work to prove the booking plus the booking adjustment did nothing to improve the reception. “you were due yesterday and did a no show” was the response. No mention of, 'we might be able to find a room' or asking what went wrong – just dead silence. Fortunately I held my composure and we sorted it all out. One just has to be prepared for the driest welcome in Australia.

Having settled in, we found it an absolutely delightful place and the restaurant was one of the best in western NSW.
