Boddington Caravan Park

Boddington Caravan Park

Situated on the banks of the Hotham River, the Boddington Caravan Park is a small council-run park that is perfect for a quiet weekend away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The park boasts non of the usual child-orientated activities; no games room, no playground and no bouncy pillow; just an old fashioned park sat within the quiet surrounds of nature.

Boddington Caravan Park

This is a small park with only about 40 powered and unpowered caravan and camping sites and 4 ensuite sites. The undercover camp kitchen has two barbecues, 2 sinks, the usual kettle, microwave, toaster and fridge with plenty of seating and a large screen tv for your viewing pleasure ( a nice touch as there is no regular tv reception, only satellite reception). There is also a  laundry available for campers use. The bathroom facilities are reasonably small -3 showers and 4 toilets in each of the male and female but they are spotlessly clean. The campsite also offers free WIFI for all visitors.

Also available for a family or group getaway is the restored Old Police Station that is situated in the middle of the park. Sleeping up to 6 people, the unit is fully self-contained and has some quirky features, such as the old prison cells that have been converted into comfortable bedrooms. Many of the original features have been retained, such as the original prisoner’s shower (don’t worry there is a new, modern bathroom) and the cell doors, and the original wooden walls are still intact. Unfortunately were unable to view the interior of the unit whilst we were visiting, but there is a video on the Boddington council website.

The park has a beautiful view over Lions Weir, and we spent a couple of hours just sat watching the various birdlife that visited the river in front of our campsite. A gate and steps provide easy access to the water for kayaking or fishing, and a walk/cycle path that runs alongside the river as far as Ranford Pool, 2.5km away. Unfortunately whilst we were staying the pathway was partially blocked as there was some sort of building works under construction. It is an easy walk to the local IGA and cafes, and only a 30-minute drive to the Quindanning Hotel. Bookings can be made online or by phoning the Shire office.
