Australian Travel Guide: Camping Parks

Camping holidays are an excellent choice for nearly anyone looking for a good time, whether you’re traveling alone or in a group. If you want to get away from it all, but you don’t want to get away from running water, electricity, and other important amenities, you need to find a good camping site. Here’s a guide that will help you do it.

Whether you just want a place to pitch your tent and some basic amenities, or a fully featured site with bars, swimming pools, entertainment options and more, you’ll be able to find it. You just have to take the time to decide what variety works best for you. Do you want to enjoy all the features of a resort, or are you looking for some peaceful time to get back to nature?

Take the time to check out all the options well in advance, and take into account the noise level you’re willing to deal with, how much you want to see other people, and what kind of space needs you’ll have. Are you interested in enjoying yourself in peaceful seclusion, or do you want to have fun with everyone else? How long will you be on holiday, how far are you interested in going, and what’s your budget going to be like?

All these things will be important to know if you want to have a successful camping holiday, but if you take the time to decide, you’ll be rewarded with an experience that a hotel stay just can’t beat. You’ll save money and enjoy yourself, too. Camping holidays offer an excellent alternative to the ordinary holiday trip!

Holiday park camping usually offers kitchen access, shower and running water bathrooms, laundry access, communal game and TV rooms, and even a reception office with on-site staff, plus a number of options for entertainment, as well as kids’ playgrounds. These are also the best places to find powered sites for your caravan, or a comfortable cabin. Even choosing a luxury cabin is usually cheaper than trying to book a hotel on holiday, making it a wonderful choice.

Of course, holiday parks are often crowded, which is why people who want to get back to nature might prefer a simpler tent camping site. These may or may not have running water or power access, and are sometimes completely unstaffed. You’re more likely to have plenty of space to yourself, however, and you’ll get to enjoy a low rate and some real peace and quiet.

Timing is everything, especially if you plan to go camping during the summer holidays, when the kids are out of school, or during the busy time around Christmas, you’ll need to book your site before you go. Many sites are very popular, and fill up fast. That means you’ll need to call in advance to make certain that you and your group will have a place to stay.

It doesn’t matter what you prefer out of your campsite and holiday, you’ll enjoy it. There are sites that offer peace and quiet in a beautiful natural setting, and sites that offer resort quality amenities and everything you could wish for. No matter which one you pick, your camping holiday will be a lot of fun as long as you plan for it carefully.
