There is one camp kitchen close to the unpowered sites. The kitchen is not overly big but comes with all you need including a BBQ, fridge, kettles, toaster, microwave and a few pots and pans. There is an inside seating area as well as an outdoor undercover area which also has a TV.
The camp kitchen was absolutely spotless while we were there – one of the cleanest I’ve seen.

There is also another small amenities block located near the unpowered campsites.
There is one dump point on site which is located by the main amenities block.
Poinciana Caravan Park Yeppoon – Our Verdict
We only spent one night at Poinciana Caravan Park – just as we were coming off Great Keppel Island and left early the next morning. Nevertheless, we had a good look around and were really impressed with how well the park was maintained and how clean all the amenities were.
The park is certainly well positioned for those who want to get around to all the attractions in Yeppoon, plus it is within walking distance to various shops which is always handy.
While it doesn’t have too many things to do within the park, the swimming pool is more than enough if you’re not trying to entertain kids.
If you’re looking for a good, simple caravan in Yeppoon – don’t hesitate to book Poinciana Tourist Park.
