Kroon Park is the greatest campground and RV (Caravan) Park on planet Earth. Why? Because of the furnished chalets they rent out for very economical prices. I found this paradise on earth by accident. I found the office and they offered me a chalet for 1 night at a reasonable price. I was given some keys to Chalet number 28 and a road map. I parked in my covered drive next to my own private Braai (barbeque) area. Opening the door I found a 2 bedroom house much larger than my own at home. It had everything! Washer, dryer, cutlery, towels, everything. It was fully furnished, have a nice living room and good beds. The air-conditioning made sure that my cool house stayed cool in the heat. I could not believe how nice it was. I was so excited because I knew I could have absolute silence, wash and dry my clothes, and have a very good braai that night. I put my clothes in the wash and went straight into town for some meat to grill outside and some wood.

When I got back, I put my clothes outside to dry and my food in the large fridge. And then promptly went for a swim in the largest indoor pool (heated) I have ever seen inside the massive sports complex. Afterwards I started my fire, open some cold beers and settled in for a nice evening. My stay was heavenly. After washing clothes in a bucket for 2 months, I was able to relax and have a machine do it for me. This was an absolute palace to me and I had a great rest. I wish I actually had more than 1 night to stay here, but I had air tickets for Madagascar and had to move on. Kroonstad is located at several possible crossroads if you are driving around South Africa. I cannot recommend this peaceful park and its facilities enough.

Surprisingly this whole park and all its splendid facilities are owned by the local municipality. They do a great job and the whole area is tranquil and immaculate.
