Situated just off the Tin Can Bay Road, half way between Gympie and Tin Can Bay, Standown Park is the ideal place to stay if you want to pull up a stump for a while or trip around to visit the beautiful attractions in the area.
With 18 acres of flat grass land we pride ourselves on offering you an affordable, restful stay with clean ammenities which include disable facilities, a laundry and a dump point. Each powered site is connected to beautiful clean drinking water, and the large camp kitchen with the open fire place is ideal for the daily happy hours.
Pets are welcome on a lead around the camp, though they can play on the acres of grass or swim in the dam.
With the forestry beside the Park there are many walking tracks to take or take a short drive to the three lakes with sandy shores.
Standown Park was originally established as a retreat for War Veterans, hence the name, as stand down in military terms means to stop, rest, have break. In no time ithe Park became a little too crowded for our one toilet and shower so the decision was made to build an amenities block and openthr Park to the grey nomads. Children are welcome although we do not have facilities for them ie: swings, swimming pools, tennis courts etc. ...read more

We have just spent a week here, it is a quiet peaceful park with kangaroos to look at morning and night. We set up in a powered site and also had our mat out on the grass with no problems. Our two dogs loved it. We have had a great time looking round the local area and knowing that all of our stuff was safe.
