Booked in here unsure what to expect. Obviously it's not the Hilton, but pleasantly surprised to find hot showers & lovely clean drop toilets in green leafy, well organised campground in mid-desert. Liked it so much we stayed a 2nd night (so pleased we did that instead of by bleak & windy L.Eyre). Helpful hosts, interesting mini museum. Public spa unusually small but a nice dip. Would definitely recommend.
