Macrossan Park is a very pleasant, wide open free camping area with a well maintained amenities block with flushing toilets, cold showers and water tap.
Great spot to free camp as lots of level areas with easy access. Very large area so can take large numbers of vans, even buses and everyone can have their own space.

Water is non-potable and is available from the one cold shower in the ladies and men's old but serviceable amenities. 3 clean toilets in each. Telstra mobile reception on the level area below the toilet block towards the highway and beside the toilet block.

Tracks washed out down to the river so high clearance vehicles only for the few camps there.

Lots of space on the higher ground but a 4X4 with small van/camper would find nice camp spots down on the banks of the Burdekin River.

Well away from highway so traffic noise is minimal, plenty of room to find a level site away from others. No shade to speak of.

The best place for Mobile 3G reception is on the high ground in front of the toilet block. No water taps available but you can get water from Shower heads if desperate. The water here is trucked in by the local council and the quality is unknown. However there is good drinking water in Charters Towers at the Woolworths Service station.
