We stayed over the Labour Day weekend for 3 nights. First impression was a quite rude receiptionist on check in. Could not be blamed on heavy workload as we were the only ones at the desk checking in. $53 per night for a powered site for a family of 4 with basically no amenities in the park other than the public playground next door. I find this a bit expensive. You can round this off with buying a bag of fire wood for $16. Another bargain.
There is a public pool next door, but again, this will set you back $17 in entry for 2 adults ($4.50 each) & 2 kids ($4 each). They were also quite rude when asked what the water temperature is.
Toilets and showers are quite aged. All not changed a bit since we stayed there last 10 years ago. The hot water was not at a constant temparature when other people were using the toilet block. The toilets and showers it seems were cleaned once a day & therefore deteriorated accordingly on that long weekend as the day progressed. Given the amount of people staying in the park an extra shift for cleaning would have been welcome.
Other parks sort of limit the amount of noise at night after 10pm and will tell you to keep it quiet if you decide you wish to party on. Unfortunately, not so at Halls Gap Caravan Park. Nobody to be seen and people laughing and making noise until 11pm. Then the Kookaburras (which I love) wake you up at 6.30am.
The camp kitchen has a double hot plate, a low power microwave & a fridge. However, there are only 2 sockets for 3 appliances. When someone is using the hot plate you cannot use the microwave as you'd have to unplug the fridge.
There are other caravan parks in Halls Gap and I will definitely give the Big 4 a try next time. However, the park's location is unbeatable. Everything is in walking distance and you don't have to get into your car too often. We even went for a quick hike up to Chatauqua Peak from the park. Overall the park is quite big so you can spread out if you go there on a normal weekend.
