After a long trip from naracoorte sight seeing we decided to stay here and see the 12 apostles first thing in the morning. Good camp as it also is the Princeton cricket club. The water is hot and the showers were clean. It's old, not new polished tiles. The kids had a playground near where we set up camp and... More

We stayed one night and found the caretaker friendly, however I must say for $20.00 for an uneven site and very unclean amenities I would have preferred to stay elsewhere. This could be a great spot if the amenities were upgraded or at least cleaner. There were not too many people staying the night we were there, so no excuse... More

As a photographer, I am not troubled by basic facilities (I bring everything I need, after all), just somewhere quiet to set up camp and close to where I am intending to work, and this reserve delivers in aces and spades. The cooking shelter is definitely handy if a cold southerly or westerly wanders through the open reserve (x2 BBQs).... More

There isn't a hotel here you bring your own.... but it is how it used to be when our grandfathers camped, this is one of the last frontiers of the basic camping ...it is a the end of the earth at the bottom of the eastern states, it is beautiful...near the rugged coast on the Great Ocean Road.

Really basic campsite in a lovely location. Amazing views around the campsite and lots of kangaroos especially in the morning. Really close to the 12 apostles. Only thing is there are not many facilities, ie cooking wise, also showers and toilets were dirty.

Surrounded by groups of kangaroos we stayed here for a night. We had plenty of space available for our campervan to choose from. The guards were nice and the location is just unbeatable. Kangaroos hopping by your car at 10m distance, can it get more amazing?! I do not think so. The price of $15 is great as well. Enjoy... More

We ended in this campingground only because the other one in Princetown was closed and the night was coming. Of course, facilites are basic, and not perfectly clean but for the price (15$ for two) and more for the chance to see hundreds of kangaroos around you at night and in the morning, it was a really unforgettable experience.

We camped here in Peak season this summer with no booking. We normally rough camp, but for the price we paid, this is a great spot. $15 for the 2 plus $5 for our teenager with the toddler staying free. It was great to camp opposite the play area, our shower was hot but there was no hot water in... More

Nice location & beautiful scenery. terrible customer service. Dirty facilities -showers were rusty and toilets quite gross. It was a torture to use them. The caretaker was always drinking at night - That's not professional at all. That's a shame as the place is really beautiful. They should have EFTPOS.
