The town of York has made a change to its RV site. From the 1st of October, power was stopped at the Avon Park RV Rest Stop in York, Western Australia and from the 1st of November, this park will be decommissioned for RVs.
RV parking will be relocated to Janet Millet Lane RV Park on the opposite side of the river. This site was No. 212 and previously known as York RV Stop.
The Janet Millet Lane RV rest stop is unpowered with no ablution facilities. RVs must be fully self contained to utilise the area. Drinking water and dump point will be sited at the new RV park on completion, however there is a swing bridge across the river so you can still access the toilets and drinking water until then.
Campers at the new Janet Millet Lane RV Park can walk or drive past the adjoining croquet club to the bridge on the main road and access the public toilets on the other side of the Avon River. One can also cross the river via a pedestrian swing bridge which is next to the new camp site.
Elderly campers may prefer the footpath section of the Glebe/South street bridge as the historic swing bridge does live up to its name and they may prefer something that doesn’t move.
Avon Park is now a day use only area and having some refurbishment early next year. You can contact the York Visitor Centre on 9641 1301 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
