Budget priced and pet friendly: Doonvilla RV Park, Maryborough, Queensland

Maryborough, on the Fraser Coast of Queensland, really gets the thumbs up from us when it comes to free and budget camping options.

Doonvilla RV Park is run by the Doon Villa Football Club Inc. Next to Maryborough Airport, Qld. Don’t worry – we couldn’t even hear the planes when we were there, the larger airport is in nearby Hervey Bay.

It is great to be helping a local club for children! Here’s one of the comments from our Facebook page:

“And all of the players are thankful to everyone who stays! You’re helping plenty of kids get outside and active every week. THANK YOU”

Pets allowed, it is for self contained vehicles only and $10 per site!

Another camper wrote:

“Just find a spot, set up, Glen comes around in the evening to collect fees. Nicest guy you will ever meet.”

Enjoy the lovely big trees and open space nearby. There is a dump point onsite (on the right as you drive in, well away from the camping zone) and a takeaway shop is just metres away. Have you stayed here?

Whilst we were there a camper updated his guide – thankfully we had the latest CAMPS 11 in the ute. Find this budget site in the Camps App and guides!
