We stayed with our family (2 adults and 3 children) in one of the cabins. Had a great time! Gill is very helpful. The desert tour with the landrover was a great experience, don't miss it. The boys loved the desert cooler.

We have slept in the 'honeymoon-bus' last november. In the evening relaxing with the other guests around a campfire, speeking with Israeli soldiers which came from their camp in the surroundings specially to Shkedi's Camplodge for good talks and fun, a welcoming owner. All these ingredients makes it to a very pleasant place in the Dead Sea surroundings. One of... More

Great desert experience! Although my wife is not a "camping-style-holiday" lover, we liked it a lot. And that is the best compliment one can give ! :-) The place is immaculate clean (showers, toilets, kitchen), which is hard to believe considering being in a desert (literally!). The bed in our AC cabin was better then in most "regular" hotels! Nice... More

After all these great reviews we decided to test it :-) Our experience was just amazing as the reviews. Great atmosphere, relaxed people, nice relaxing music over the camp. Gil the owner is nice guy, who invited us for mutual dinner with his family and friends. We have been in "Honeymoon Bus" which I highly recommend. It has it all... More

Even though we only stayed one evening, we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Upon arrival in the afternoon, the owner welcomed us with coffee, a bottle of wine that had been left behind and he started up the air conditioning in the Bedouin style lounge area. Our cabin was clean and creative. Even though the kitchen was crowded at dinner time,... More

In my opinion the desert in the area around Shkedi's Camplodge is beautiful. If you like the desert, a place to meet other people, good conversations with Gili about Israel, a lot of fun in the desert (i.e. a Jeep-tour) and swimming in the dead see then you should definitely visit Shkedi's Camplodge. Actually it is a must if you... More

Has a perfect vibe and all the amenities you need. The camp was cozy and the rooms were clean and warm. The staff was laid back and extremely helpful. The best place we stayed in Israel. .............

Great Lodge facilities, central meeting point, special hosts and peaceful music as a perfect background. I really enjoyed sitting with all the travelers from all around the world and talk about anything. I'm definitely going to come back soon.

From the photos on Tripadvisor, I was expecting this to be in the middle of nowhere, rather like a nomad camp, with nothing around it for miles and miles. And it is to some extent, but it's within a moshav in the middle of nowhere. However, the "campsite" is so masterfully camouflaged that while, from the outside, it looks like... More
