Really enjoyed this, our second night of SWAG camping and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had our own fire pit for cooking but were close to the Station cafe for coffee in the morning. Had a helicopter ride when we were there and used the swimming pool. Helicopter ride was great, they also offered camel and quad... More

I was there with some friends for a one night stop when visiting Kings Canyon after spending some days in Ayers Rock. We had the small lodges, for 2 people, with fan but well ventilated (fresh during night, you will melt yourself if you try to take a nap after lunch). With shared toilets/showers closed, very clean and maintained. you... More

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
