Halls Creek Caravan Park
Reviewed 26 June 2011

We checked into Halls Creek Caravan Park during lunchtime and found all that was available were powered and unpowered sites. This suited us exacty, for we had our own tent, and were happy to pitch it in the largish shady, grassed area. There were a number of conveniently located taps in this spot and the shower/toilet block was a minute's walk away.
The amenities block was probably one of the cleanest I've ever seen in a caravan park, replete with mop & bucket for public use. I saw evidence of people using this to clean up after their showers, which led me to think there are some long-term customers staying here. The lights in the shower block could perhaps be turned on a bit earlier, as I was showering around sunset, and it was already quite dim in the cubicles. Someone came and turned the lights on eventually, when it was pretty much dark outside, so imagine it indoors. The owners should think of perhaps installing motion-sensor lights, or perhaps timed lighting (push vacuum button). This would avoid the lights in the block being kept on all night as well.
The kiosk/shop sells a HUGE variety of goods crammed onto packed shelves. I can hardly imagine what to do with ceramic vases, hair & beauty kits and framed wall paintings when I go camping!! But they also stock various useful household, cleaning and grocery items. Also an impressive (and interesting!) selection of kids' and baby's toys & merchandise.
The lone female staff-member at reception was friendly and informative, even offerring to turn off the lighting in the tent-camping area if it bothered us. This we accepted, however, the caravan park's lighting did not affect us as much as the 24/7 lighting coming from a neighbouring property bordering the tent-camping area. However, this was not the park's fault, but perhaps the questionable neighbourhood in which it finds itself.
There wasn't much evidence of the barbed-wire fencing mentioned in a previous review here, however, maybe we stayed on the wrong (or right?) side of the park. There is a solid aluminium fence around the property, but that is probably to protect its customers, as there was some loud shouting and animated behaviour coming from beyond the fence, out on the streets after dark.
On a final note, there were a couple of pet galahs kept in a big cage near the bbq area which I was sorely tempted to let loose. The term "animal cruelty" kept popping into my mind, even though there was plenty of food and water. The galahs were perhaps once prized pets, and I'm not sure what the permit laws are in Western Australia in terms of keeping native animals as pets. But seeing the desultory state those poor creatures were in, and how starved of attention they seemed, definitely made me want to liberate them. I did not - only on account of my uncertainty of how long they've been in there, and would probably die if let loose into the wild now.
If I had my way again, I would not have stayed in the town of Halls Creek at all, but camped at Caroline Pool - a natural swimming area which allows for 24-hour overnight camping - a few kms out of town. There are no toilet facilities here, but the spot was quite picturesque and tranquil when we visited during late afternoon. Too bad we'd already checked into the caravan park.
All in all, our one-night stay in Halls Creek was acceptable, and allowed us to keep going to our next destination.

Room Tip: Camp free at Caroline Pool, a few kms out of town.

Camping at the Hall's Creek Caravan Park feels a bit like staying at a detention centre. The grounds are surrounded by a high barbed wire fence. Not sure if it was to keep trouble out or in...

The grounds themselves were fine but nothing special. For tenters there was a small grassy oval that you could pitch on. The cost was only $11 per person so that was reasonable. The ground was flat but not much shade. Although we didn't need any as we arrived at sunset and left the next morning at sunrise.

The one amenity block was large and clean. At the front of the park there was a swimming pool and a BBQ (think you had to pay to use it), but we did not try either. There was also a wee shop, with bunches of packaged food but not much fresh.

The other campers at the site were friendly and we had a nice chat. Then everyone quieted down and went to bed at a decent hour. Only complaint was the street light over the camping area was bright and stayed on all night.

Really it was a fine enough place for one night. Just don't think I would like to stay in Hall's Creek more than one night as it is the kind of place that requires high barbed wire fences!
