I've just come back from a 3 day weekend with my 4WDrive club at Landcruser Park, although it was a 4wd weekend, l thought l'd do a review on the camping itself as l couldn't see one within the forums themselves.http://www.landcruisermountainpark.com.au/index.php
The environment and scenery was beautiful, the smell of nature divine.
The facilties are very minimal but clean and reasonably maintained, hot showers and toilets are available at the main camp areas. The Park office carries drinks, ice, milk, bread, cigarettes, batteries and film. You need to supply your own drinking water and l found that l was unable to get mobile phone service till l was close to Kilcoy but a public phone is available at the office as well.
Camping is allowed anywhere on the park itself but you would need to be self sufficient if you wanted to camp elsewhere from the main areas. There are some beautiful spots off the beaten track but a 4wd would be needed to reach many of these.
Given the price l would think twice about it being a camping area that l would consider without a 4wd in saying that with a group of 4wd enthusiasts it's the best.
$35 per vehicle for 24 hour stay
$25 day trip per vehicle/extra day
6 to 7 nights camping $175
2 WD Vehicles
Camping: $25 night per vehicle 24 hours stay
I did however find my initial impression of one of the owners to be somewhat disappointing, not very forthcoming with information or welcoming, l think l may have interrupted her lunch. In saying that l will have prior knowledge for the next trip of what l needed to know initially so all will be well.
Road signs and signage for the park itself along the way to it could have been better, l'm actually glad l came through during the day, some of our members came after dark and those that hadn't been before were glad for radio contact and gps'.
We didn't encounter any undesirables, the park was fairly quiet and the weather was beautiful, a little chilly during the evening but you just made a bigger campfire.
Was a wonderful weekend overall, the camping was great, l had heaps of fun, my man/child finally got to experience my 4WDriving skills including the mishap in the water crossing, the adrenaline induced hill climbs and the one scary tilted moment when l thought l could stop the car from tipping over by putting my arm out the window....LOL
Please feel free to add on your thoughts as well.
