It's important to know what you'll get here - despite the price this isn't 5 star accommodation. They are two person tents with shared bathrooms. As long as you're happy with that, this is a great location, and a great outback experience. The included breakfast is very generous and the restaurant makes some nice rustic meals. For anyone with specific... More

Stopped here while doing a trip last September 2014. "Kings Creek Station" was established in 1981 and is a cattle & camel station, another great place to stop in the Red Centre. A good place to stop and take a break or stay overnight. The friendly staff offer accommodation, camping facilities, tours of the station, enjoy the surroundings by helicopter,... More

Great ouback experience. They keep numbers limited, and sites are so spaced out, very private and quiet - and they show you to your site by quad bike! Friendly staff, who dealt with the challenges of being remote well (like a non-functioning EFTPOS machine). Plenty to keep the kids occupied - camels and other animals, grassy area for footy, playground,... More

I booked for one night as i had seen a recent TV program and the presenter stayed there. I really enjoyed my very short stay, though I was a bit disappointed that I could not get an evening meal - settled for a camel burger instead, which was delicious. I stayed in one of the safari cabins and while they... More

I stayed two nights at the Kings Creek Station while visiting Uluru (Ayres Rock) and Kings Canyon (Watarrka). Accommodation at Uluru is the most expensive in Australia, so choosing an alternative is less expensive. Additionally, staying at a station is a different experience from staying in standard type accommodation. Many of the tour operators choose Kings Creek Station for their... More

I have camped for over 30 years throughout remote and populated parts of Australia and Europe and this campground is one of the most disappointing. Put simply, if you are a family or couple after a clean, hot shower, camp kitchen or laundry facilities, you won't find them here. The septic needs some maintenance too given the unpleasant waft through... More

Having read more recent reviews to those available when I booked two nights in the safari cabins I have to agree that I was disappointed with my stay from the perspective that it did not match the website description. When we arrived we found the free wifi was no longer available and when I asked about booking the advertised sunset... More

The sites here are huge and we had our own shelter with table and chairs which was great. Our children enjoyed the very basic playground and interacting with the animals that are near the front. However the bathrooms were disgusting! There was cm's of mould growing around the shower heads, there was mould all down the shower walls and the... More

Where to start. I've never been prompted to join Trip Advisor before staying at this place a few days ago, quite simply, the most poorly run campsite I have ever stayed in. I called for days in advance and the phone wasn't answered once, l left messages which were not returned and so thought we would wing it. Wrong decision.... More

Stayed one night and the noise from the school groups kept going til about 11 pm. They were not bad but it meant a number of the facilities were overwhelmed. Has nice stores and food options. Can do quad bike rides, camel rides and chopper rides all at reasonable prices. Shortish drive to Kings Canyon walk but would have been... More
