We stayed there over the new year period and our cabin was dirty, full of ants..... I would never go back to this place.... The island itself is beautiful and its so disappointing to have the owners ( of the caravan park) not care about cleaning their cabins. They were full to capacity and didn't seem to worry about fixing... More

We stayed in a well-appointed 1 bedroom log cabin in this well-located campground. Quiet, comfortable and welcoming with everything you really need - good value on what can be a pricey island. You just need to bring food with you and everything is supplied in the way of kitchen equipment. Alternatively there is a more upmarket restaurant in another place... More

Here is a campsite in the wild. You'll share it with cocatoes, wallabies, koalas .... so wonderfull !! We rented a cabin for 2 persons. Very confortable, there is all you need in it. You will just need to buy food in Kingscote because there is no supermarket around. A very nice place to stay for a few days.

We had intentions of staying within the park, but the later it got, the more the wildlife started appearing on the roadside. Hence KI caravan park. An excellent choice with a great camp kitchen complete with combustion fire. No one on site after 4 pm but self registration. Great clean sites and lots of wildlife and drive thru sites for... More

This was by far our favorite campsite on our road trip from Sydney to Port Lincoln and back! We stayed here for 2 nights but wish it lasted longer. We were traveling in the small campervan with only one stove top so we were delighted that there was a large camp kitchen for us to spread into and get cooking.... More

Worth the extra drive from the ferry, it's at far side of the isle ( 17 hr expedition from the big M ), great relaxing atmosphere, wallabies, Roos, koalas, birds etc all around you, even had the occasional visit from the possums exploring on the canvas roof at night. If you leave door/tent open I think they and the wallabies... More

We have stayed in many caravan park cabins around Australia and our cabin was at the top - Acacia - very clean, the kitchen had every utensil that one could want and they were clean and not tired and well worn like in a lot of places. The wildlife, to wake up and find a Koala bear staring at you... More

Western KI Caravan Park and Wildlife Reserve has been a wonderful surprise. We stayed in a wonderful and clean bungalow, with a very useful kitchen. But the most exciting time has been outside, with koalas, wallabies were running around the bungalow. Western KI Caravan Park and Wildlife Reserve is very near to the Flinder'S park entrance

A wonderful campsite providing you are pretty self sufficient. We stayed 3 days at the end of Feb (i.e. not peak season) and had a great time. I'm sure the site struggles when it's busy - limited facilities and very limited campsite shop. There's nothing for miles so you'd think the would offer a broader range of groceries etc. The...

stayed a night here in February in one of the log cabins as sleeping in a tent is not an option for me. The cabin was a nice little one bedroom thing with a good sized kitchen and pretty good sized bathroom. Make sure you take a walk around the property and you will see heaps of animals- wallabies, kangaroos,... More
