Cost $80 for an unpowered site for one night for four people - whilst surrounds nice, amenities block needs attention. Given the cold evenings and available fire places they could have supplied the wood for the cost). Roadside advertising a little inflated however tranquil environment.

This was not up to the expectations we had after viewing on the internet, and booking direct by phone. The safari tent was clean, warm and comfortable. Facilities were adequate, and clean. However, the free WiFi couldn't seem to handle more than 2 or 3 users, so pretty much useless. Food was basic except for the breakfast which was excellent... More

The Best Camping Exp I have ever had. My Camp Site was so big, it even came with my Own Backyard for me and the Kids to play. The Lady Chef cooked us a dish of Camel and Kangaroo meat, even though it was her night off. Try getting this service any where else in Australia. The Quad Bike rides,... More

We stayed in the Safari Cabins overnight in July and would definitely stay again. The cabin was basic, but the beds were comfy. It was quite cold at night, but the rooms do have a heater. The shared bathrooms were clean and well maintained. Food at the restaurant is fine, but they also have BBQ packs available that you can... More

We spent a night at Kings Creek Station as part of a 3 day outback tour. The camp ground facilities were well maintained and the washrooms were clean with lots of hot water. There is a quick walk up the back lane to a lookout for watching the sunset and sunrise.

We stayed in the no power camping area. Plenty of room on the lawn when there but it can be crowded. Better than Kings Canyon resort as you can have fires which in winter here is a must. They do camel rides, helicopter flights and quad bike tours (popular with back packers). We did a extended helicopter flight over the... More

We were travelling as a family with older children (15 and 11) and stayed in the safari cabins. The cabins are pretty basic with just two single beds, a heater and a fan - but the beds are comfortable and we all stayed warm despite the very cold nights during winter. Bring food to BBQ or you can purchase a... More

Stayed here with a another family. The booking was mucked up but they fixed it and ended up with our own campground . Staff were very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend ! Clean facilities , nice spacious camp areas and spectacular views. Best place we stayed while travelling around Uluru and Macdonnell ranges.

We enjoyed the safari cabins -- our kids thought they were a lot more fun than staying in a hotel or a homestay. Good breakfast included, helpful staff, nice chance to meet other travellers around the campfire, beautiful stars at night, close to Kings Canyon. The only downside was that the heaters in the cabins couldn't keep up with the... More

My husband, daughter and myself arrived at this remote camp ground late in the afternoon with no booking. Upon asking, we were told they were fully booked. They then rang the next camping ground for us only to be told that they were also fully booked. Upon hearing that my husband needed power for a CPAP machine, they went out... More
