Booti Booti?

Postby newbie camper » Tue Mar 11, 2008 7:04 pm

Still on the marathon hunt to find something as wonderful as Banksia Green, which is close to the beach and just generally wonderful.

Has any one been camping at Booti Booti? If so was it any good? Would you recommend it?

Hope to hear from you all soon :)

Your right Derek..I was going to mention this in my last post,The Ruins is $14 p/person& Tiona
Caravan Park is only $11 p/person.
I found any National Park south of Hat Head is expensive,we justed stayed at SW Rocks& that was only$5 p/person& all our parks up here are the same except Sandon River which is $7.

Comparable to a decent caravan park!. Just makes me realise Queensland especially the S.E is a camping paradise with so many parks nice and cheap.

Wow you guys are great.

I completely agree that it is a little pricey indeed. We have some friends leaving us for Perth :cry: so we wanted something a little special (i.e hot showers).

I think we are going to brave it and see how we get on. I will be sure to let you all know how Botti Booti is if we can actually get into the camp site - as we are planning on going this Friday (Easter weekend) so fingers crossed.

Thanks again!

Now I have found you guys, I will be sure to be choosing our camping location based on reviews here x
