In sup­port of the Gat­ton RV Park

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

I WAS pleased to see the let­ter from the Rus­sells prais­ing the free Gat­ton RV park, the more so as I have been very dis­ap­pointed with let­ters crit­i­cis­ing it. Car­a­van parks don’t suit all van­ners, some can’t af­ford them ev­ery night. We are reg­u­lar users of free spots and have availed our­selves of them all over Aus­tralia. We are al­ways ap­pre­cia­tive of the con­sid­er­a­tion given to trav­ellers by the pro­vi­sion of th­ese ser­vices. Whilst our set-up might not be ac­cepted as “self con­tained” by some, we carry our porta-potti and can col­lect our grey wa­ter, thus a dump point is quite ad­e­quate. Why crit­i­cise LVRC for not pro­vid­ing toi­let fa­cil­i­ties at their free spot? I per­son­ally re­gard it as a plus in a town area – there will be no “non campers” turn­ing up at all times of the night to use them, thus con­tribut­ing to a qui­eter night! The Wil­liam Kemp Park is one of the best free spots that I have seen – beau­ti­fully main­tained green lawns, bar­be­cue fa­cil­i­ties, ad­e­quate shade trees. When plan­ning our trips we con­sult the Wi­ki­camps web­site, it has many glow­ing re­ports of the Gat­ton fa­cil­ity with most, like the Rus­sells, spend­ing money at IGA or Coles. Those are not the only busi­nesses which have ben­e­fited from LVRC’S gen­er­ous fore­sight. Sim­i­larly, when we avail other town’s gen­er­ous pro­vi­sion of free camps, we spend money there. Well done LVRC. — Garry Sharp, Re­gency Downs
