KINGS CREEK STATION is a working cattle/ camel station, which is located, just outside of Watarrka National Park. It is run by Ian and Lyn, who have been here for over 30 years. I booked our family here, during high season in July as a special treat since we were travelling elsewhere and could not catch up with them. The... More

What a great stay at Kings Creek Station. Welcomed by Michelle and Dan we were taken by Quad bike on an adventure through the property coming across plenty of dingo tracks, wild camels and brumby's and desert scrub. We chose to do the overnight camping adventure where we had canapes watching the sun set over the Canyon and watched a... More

Good location just a few km from Kings Creek, which makes it a great overnight option on your way to/from the Creek. Stayed in a "Safari Cabin" for one night. The walls are tent fabric, but in a sturdy frame which makes it very stable. There was a major thunderstorm that night but none of the Cabins suffered any damage.... More

Kings Creek Station was a good place for a one night stop while we visited Kings Canyon. We stayed in a tent cabin. It was small and hot but there was a fan and the tent was well ventilated. The service was quite good. No camels to ride when we were there.

Don't be fooled by the trip advisor description of Alice Springs for Kings Creek Station. They may have a post box in Alice Springs thay could get to via one of their helicopters but you certainly won't be walking onto town. We stayed a couple of nights at one of their powered van sites. Staff were very friendly and so... More

G'day Rob_H, I had to laugh reading the description of our getting the mail by helicopter, you're actually not too far off the mark! Because of the distance between us and Alice Springs we do get our mail flown in once a week, only it's by plane. Sorry about the situation with the pool, while it's a little too late... More

This is an excellent staging point to visit Kings Canyon. The camping spots for powered sites are spread around the station and have picnic tables and a sink at each (don't know about the unpowered sites) As there was only $3 per night difference between the powered and unpowered sites and considering the cost of gas to run the fridge/freezer,...

G'day Winnebago_Nomads, I'm glad you like the camping at Kings Creek, the natural beauty of this area is it's open spaces and vegetation and so the grounds been set up to complement the environment. It's a shame about the petrol pricing, once you get off the main trucking route of the Stuart Highway it becomes a great deal more expensive... More

On arrival in 38C heat early October we were escorted to Safari tents which we thought would be a fantastic experience for the family. Tents were at opposite end from the carpark 100+ metres away. The guy kindly helped transport belongings to the tents on the 4W motorbike. Tents were clean and obviously very hot as expected. We said to... More

G'day SarahOstynn11, I'm sorry to hear you didn't have a great time when you stayed with us, especially as you were hoping to give the kids a memorable experience. The pool was, I'm disappointed to say, vandalized - making it unavailable until we can replace the entire inner lining. The good news is that these repairs should be complete before... More

This price will give you an indication that these guys are after the tourist dollar! $44 for powered site. Very basic showers/toilets (nothing has changed in 4 years) We went to grab something to eat as we checked in late. 1st thing to note you need to order before 6.30pm. Cafe closes at 7pm. We, of course didn't know this... More

G'day BeatleBails, I'm sorry to hear you weren't completely satisfied, in particular with the price of diesel. We are the first to agree that once the cost of freight to a remote area is included, the price of fuel certainly isn't what it is in our nearest town of Alice Springs, which is 460 kilometers away. It is great to... More

We camped at Kings Creek Station and thought it was great. 2 adults, 2 kids. A big grassy area for the tents, spotlessly clean amenities block, basic but well maintained outdoor kitchen and plenty of undercover areas for lunch etc. Make sure you watch the dvd which shows the tremendous work Ian and Lyn are doing with the local Aboriginal...
