The camp ground at Kings Creek Station is well laid out offering privacy with defined fire pits. We spent two nights here and enjoyed exploring the area and also getting to know the locals namely the camels, donkey, Charlie the cockatoo and a calf! We booked a helicopter flight over Kings Canyon, Justin our pilot was excellent. The bird's eye... More

We spent two nights here and loved it. For $49 family rate per night on a huge site with fire pit, grass area and shelter with table and sink we were very happy. We loved getting to know the station crew. Our girls loved giving Charlie the cockatoo a tickle, feeding Molly the calf and riding the camels which were... More

We spent two amazing nights here in August. We came here after two disappointing nights at Ayres Rock Resort Caravan Park - which we found very expensive and tiny caravan sites. We were SO impressed with our site here at Kings Creek Station - our site could easily take three vans and we had our own massive fire-pit, kitchen area,... More

A fabulous welcome and an amazing campsite, so much space, covered area with kitchen sink, grassed area and gravel area and fire pit just in one campsite! Facilities are very, very basic so if you like a little bit of luxury this is not for you but if you want a relaxed camping experience this place is perfect, although don't... More

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.
