Hi gypselady.
Showers are erected as required and are $20 deposit and $10 a day. We only have a few at moment to see how they go as they are a bit expensive. Main uses so far are families with children.

Thanks Peter. It will be interesting to see how they go.

I presume that $10 per day cost covers both the shower recess and the solar showers, is that correct??

Thanks for the info Peter. Do you guys put it up or is it up to the camper who is hiring the unit??

I was out there on saturday, must have had some good rain recently......the campground looks like it needs a good mow. You might have to put Barry to work:-))

hi gypselady...I can put it up if needed but most know how too..its not hard..I also pull it down so I can disinfect the floor.
Yep, needs mowing, but after 39mm of rain in 3 hrs in one day over Xmas you can see it growing. Still better than the dirt at Flannagins...lol
It takes a week to mow when we don't have campers.

Thanks again Peter...it is good to give potential campers as much info as possible about these things.

A week!! Geez at the current rate of growth it would be time to start again at the end of the week Peter.

Actually, the whole country out that way Beaudesert, Rathdowney, Boonah, Tamborine and Canungra is looking really good.

Looks like it is time for an update and as I was out at AD Park on the weekend I caught up on the current info.....well most of it. Did forget to get the fees for the kids.

Fees (October 2010) are now Adults $6 p/p/p/n
Families $17 p/n

Firewood $10 for a container 1/3 of a 44 gallon drum size.....there is NO free firewood available.

The shower and recess as mentioned in previous posts are also no longer available.

AD Park is pet friendly and it is not necessary to book unless you are having a big group attending and then it is advisable.

Flush toilets and creek water available from the tap at the rear of the toilets.

There is now excellent NextG mobile phone service but limited GSM phone service.

I have to say again.....this is still one of my most favourite campgrounds.....it is always very picturesque...

I'm not certain, but i think we used to go to this park and camp about 20 years ago. If it's the one i'm thinking of, there's a trainline on the side of the mountain.

That's the one Steve and it is not too far up the road from the Border Loop.

ahh yeah, gees doesn't look too much different. It used to be free and i don't remember any facilties. We used to walk up to the trainline and walk through the very long tunnel, and there's a hidden waterfall up there aswell.

Yes I understand it used to be free....not in my time though....unfortunately for me.

Not sure I could manage a 'climb' up to the train line though it would be good to see the waterfall.

Mind you it is densely covered in vegetation now. When I first used to go camping there you could see the trains coming out of one side of the mountain and disappearing into the next mountain.....not so any more. You just get glimpses of the train in between the trees.

The creek is the best I have seen it.....great flow and quite deep enough for a swim though too cold for me.

Still a FABULOUS spot.

ahh ok, yeah i seem to remember it being a relatively easy walk/climb up the hill but yeah i think it was pretty open. I guess there's no guarantee you'd have access to the line, tunnel or waterfall if they have put fences in, which would be illegal anyway. The camping area was just a big paddock. I remember the creek being freezing, we used to sit on rocks in the sun, jump in, then get out again :lol:

Now i'll have to try get back there and go for a wonder :cheers
