Great location, easy access for vans and well maintained amendities. Caranan park is close to canyon walking trail which is a must do. The helicopter flight over the canyon is well worth the $90 cost as well

King's canyon is a spectacular place to come to. It offers a wide range of activities and opportunities to explore this ancient land. For campers and caravaners you need to make sure you stock up on provisions as Kings canyonis remote.

Enjoyed our stay here as we booked early and were rewarded with a powered site with a view of the George Gill Ranges. What a magnificent view! There is a small playground for kids. The amenities were average and needed a clean. Don't expect any phone reception as you are in a national park. There is a pay phone at... More

The staff serving and the site itself were great. But I think that the management could do much better. Firstly they have a great rubbish system so that everything is separated, but the first you find out about this is when you take your rubbish to the bins. It would be so easy to hand out a leaflet with the... More

You expect dirt etc when camping in the outback but I would have to say the bathrooms and camp kitchens were disappointing. Showers were grubby with lots of bits and pieces hair etc in the drains. Not sure what time you have to have a shower to get hot water but over three days I missed it everytime. They have... More

Upon arrival resort presented well. However, overall a disappointing visit. Communication issues with our booking which resulted in the change of dates not being acknowledged from the resort. Therefore, this resulted in having to set up camp twice which was avoidable time wasting of about 2hrs. Of the 4 camps of which we vacated early on the second day, only... More

Caravan park was quite nice but the toilets/shower facilities spoil it! In the time we were there I did not see them cleaned at all! Luke warm shower didn't help either! The bar and cafe/restaurant were great. The resort was really good and there was a shop if you needed anything! The cost of things there were quite high but... More

Camping sites were ok but facilities were average. Food was terrible and at $24 per burger I would've thought they would be fantastic. Beef didn't even taste like beef. Manager that was on wasn't very nice to customers or her staff. Backpacker working there was great though very helpful. Pizzas were good. Would stay again but not eat at BBQ... More

This camping area is part of Kings Canyon Resort with good camp kitchen and amenity facilities and laundry. This Resort is within easy driving distance to Kings Canyon and Kathleen Gorge where there are great walks and views. Bistro, bar and shop close bar. No mobile or wifi. This is available for a cost at reception.
