Worst campground we have ever been! We were directed to put up our tent in the outmost corner of the campground. It looks unorganised and directions are not clear. After some searching we found the place. We were told that there would be showers and toilets in decent proximity, but this sanitary block appeared to be closed. We had to go all the way to pool, which was not very close by our tent. When I asked at the reception if those were really the most close by showers, she was not even aware that the other ones were closed. This wouldn't be specifically a problem, but the showers were very dirty. Food options were very limited and overpriced.
I would recommend to drive 35km further and stay in the Kings Canyon Resort (they also have camping ground).

CONS:
Fire Hazard: Dry Grass had not been brush cut and encroached into some of the fire pits. It was quite high around edge of pool fence we watched 5 brown snakes in the hour we were sitting by the pool (one came in under a chair where a child was sitting) and several tracks around the camp sites.
Shade: shade cloth was falling off the communal shade structure and individual campsites didn't have much shade
Campground toilet block was out of action
Communal BBQ gas bottle was empty and knobs broken.
$50/site/night

PROS:
Pool and 'other' ablutions were clean.
Nice drinking water.

Do not plan on staying here in January when temperatures are high. The receptionist "who had never been in the cabins" gave me keys to 2 other cabins to try and find a functioning fan on my own. They did not work either. She eventually brought us a free standing oscillating fan. I understand there is only one person to man the desk (it was NOT busy) however, a small "Back in 10 minutes" sign so that she could help a customer would be reasonable but apparently that was too much effort. The tent is small, leave your luggage in the boot of your car. It is basically a half step above sleeping in a tent on the ground. We have stayed in similar tent camps in different parts of the world that were a lot nicer and more accommodating. The showers and restrooms were marginally clean. Unrelated but disconcerting to see the cook's small baby playing on the kitchen floor with toys and a blanket not 3 feet from an operating deep fat fryer. The breakfast in another large tented dining area the next morning was good.

January is a very hot time in Central Australia, that's for sure. All the cabins have had their fans serviced and are in working order, thanks for the feedback. We have followed up on your comments, thank you for your review. Glad you enjoyed your breakfast! Safe Travels, KCS

I read some of the earlier, more negative comments and have to say; yes, there was a living frog in the shower/toilets - but the station is in the countryside and a remote place where such things can happen. Yes, the pool isn’t the cleanest, fanciest 5star hotel type pool - but it was absolutely good enough to get refreshed. Yes, some of the (i presume Asian) staff were a bit difficult to understand - but it worked out. And yes, there is a dog strolling around - but friendly and it wouldn’t approach you if not called. This is the outback and not NYC so it’s all about expectations. The tent rather than cabin concept is perfect. Fresh air at night, seeing the stars (amazing and best view ever) waking up by the rising sun is just wonderful. Unfortunately it is also the reason for not a higher rating; we (and what I heard also from others) were confronted with a group of people who were increasingly noisy at the nearby BBQ place and this starting at 10pm. Had to get there at midnight to ask them to slow down....recommendation to the management: put some signs up that make the more ignorant people aware that there are others who prefer to sleep than stay awake due to a party....or alternatively separate the BBQ / eating place from the sleeping area.

Look for 20 bucks a night per person to camp it was ok i guess. This place obviously makes its money off the backpackers as there were about 10 tours while we were there. The pool was like pea soup as a result and i certainly wasn't putting my head under even in 40 degrees... We needed a place close to Kings Canyon as we were hiking it early next day. In hind site we should have gone to Kings Creek Resort as its closer to Kings Canyon and the facilities are 10 times better for the same price.
DO NOT EAT THE CAMEL BURGER!!!! It was the worst thing i ate in my whole 2 weeks in the Red Centre. Greasy and disgusting and made me feel ill. My mates had hamburgers which weren't any better. Take your own food or wait till you get to the next joint

Room tip: Go to Kings Creek resort 30 ks down the road
