Pirate Pete spends a lot of nights in Caravan Parks. Some is good, some is better and some isn’t.
How we rates Caravan Parks is probably a little different to how most folk might.
The Captain likes a Carapark that has a power point – which is all he really needs. Access to water is good too.
So we rates parks with a skull and grossed guitar fer each facility we likes.
Other categories may be added at whim..
Tuesday March 15 2011 — Caravan Park next to Nowra bridge, The Willows, opposite helicopter wanted to charge $30 fer a powered site PLUS $10 per head. Thats $40 to park on a little piece of grass from sunset till just after sunrise. No thanks! They earnt theirselves a big thumbs down from Pirate Pete and he didn’t stay there and is unlikely to go back there in the future. He opted for rest area near McDonalds Sth Nowra.
Monday 21st March 2011 — In contrast Rivergums Caravan Park, Strafford St, Manilla (45km nth west of Tamworth) gets theirselves a double thumbs up and five skull and crossed guitars. $15 absolutely reasonable. No one at check in but sign says find yerself a site – any site is ok- and we’ll see you later on when we return. Perfectly happy to wander down to reception and pay. Friendly service when you do. Amenities what they should be. Situated beside river/creek with loverly outlook – river gums funnily enough ….Very happy pirate tonight
Wednesday 23rd March 2011 — Something a little bit different always attracts Pirate Petes attention. Here we are in Mullumbimby (northern NSW). At $25 yer paying a few dollars fer the uniquity of the camp site but the lady who takes the money is very nice and friendly. Clean showers and toilets are under the clubhouse and always open. Power comes from sockets on the grounds 4 lighting poles – plenty of space fer unpowered camping. Pirate Pete likes a bit of distance between hisself and his neighbours so this site rates highly on his register – no laundry which wouldn’t have even been noticed except it were that one day a month he washes his clothes… aaarrr! Another day wearing them won’t make any difference. .
PS if yer there on the right night yer might get to watch the footballers train.
