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. The area... More

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.

Lovely camp ground, friendly helpful staff even without a booking. The grounds are spacious with plenty of room for everyone, even the large amount of kangaroos hanging around. The facilities were extremely clean and well maintained, which is a huge bonus! As a young female travelling by myself I felt completely safe here and will recommend to any friends planning... More

My family and I spent last Easter holidays at Princetown camping grounds and the caretaker was a really helpful man. The showers unfortunately went cold a lot, but that is the fun of camping, showers at midnight. The kids had a great time and we hardly even saw them except for a feed. I would recommend highly recommend the camping... More

We stay at this ground every year with a group of friends. If we can get away for a weekend we go down by ourselves. The campground is fantastic, the facilities are great and very clean, plenty of room for caravans, tents, vans and everything else in between. I love having somewhere that we can take our best mate with... More
