We stayed here in early June 2016. There are two camping areas and neither has power available. The lower area is called The Grove and it is located closer to the gorge and is shaded almost completely. For people with solar panels and generators, another area is located adjacent with fewer trees for solar panel sites and generator sites located further back. Cost was $18.00 pp per night. The reception area is located at the front of the main building with a dining and bar area out the back on a large deck. Internet and phone reception is generally available within this decked area and out near the booking in and reception area.....but can be a bit hit and miss. In general it is a great park and has good toilet/shower and laundry areas. The caravan sites are very large and defined by rock edges. It is interesting that camp fires are allowed between the caravan areas and if any section of the defining rock edges are in the way of foot/wheel chair access or other traffic or reason, you are allowed to remove the rocks temporarily and relay when leaving. There are many accommodation options including Eco tents, and cabins of various sizes and configurations. There is access to the gorge for swimming (well used) in either the deep water or a shallower sandy area called "the beach". Canoes can be hired at the Grove and you can paddle up the gorge to the Lawn Hill National Park site. The Lawn Hill National Park is about 10 kms by road from Adel Grove and swimming is also an option here too. We swam in both places... but you get to swim with a few small Johnson fresh water crocodiles and the odd water snake which does not seem to bother most people we swam with either. Meals are available in the dining area from a two choices, but variable, set menu in the dining area and you need to book for the evening meal as supplies are often limited and the menu is decided sometimes, by what is available at the time. We did have a great meal with choice of desert for $30.00 pp. In all we had a great time here..... although the road in from Cammooweal is pretty rough and includes 3 or 4 stream/creek/waterhole crossings. The Gregory Downs road is also rough in places but about half the road has been partly sealed or dust supressed by a local mining company a few years ago.
