Australian Caravan Park Reports
Rating System Explained
For example, a park which is suited to a one-night stop-over, but have basic amenities, may rate higher than a park which is more geared to longer stays and has more amenities - the one-nighter may have less services but these are in excellent condition, whereas the longer-stay park may have more services but they are not well kept or not clean and would spoil a long stay. So, you can see that the Park Rating is more suited to picking the quality of a park, rather than just "brownie points" for more services.
The Campground Rating takes into account the facilities and cleanliness of these. The facilities available can be varied, from a single bush toilet to hot showers and free BBQs. The area may also not be suitable for caravans. These campgrounds are easily identified by the word "campground" at the index. Roadside rest areas are also listed and can be rated.
