“Spacious & friendly but dirty :-(”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

Stayed at a powered site with our 10 year old dog. Lots of space and freedom, reception staff very helpful and friendly.
Well laid out with several amenities blocks.
Showers need a good scrub especially soap rest tiles and vanities.
Camp kitchen large but ill equipped, just a couple of BBQs and fridges, and a microwave, no hot water or kettle, no toaster, and filthy greasy work tops. Plug didn't even fit in the sink drain!
Overall a positive experience, great atmosphere and close to Uluru, shops and pubs.

We stayed in one of the cabins for a night. The bunks in the children's bedroom were not made up, but linen was provided. The bathrooms were a bit of a walk from the cabin, but plenty of showers & toilets in the blocks. The cabin was clean, but some of the flooring and furniture looked a bit old.
There is a decent sized pool and children's playground.
The restaurant at the hotel next door, the Outback Pioneer BBQ Bar is a fun place for dinner and the Campground has a family voucher.

We stayed on powered sites with our caravans. They are red dirt, without slabs.
Disappointed you can't see Rock from sites, but there was convenient lookout just near us.
Amenities were good. Long wait for showers at night, but that had a lot to do with buses of school girls ( yes they were annoying!!)
Campfire story telling session was good.
Nice pool... But was freezing even on 39 degree day!
Great playground for kids.
Good park.

Arriving at Ayers Rock after 3 days on the road was a welcome stop, however the inviting grassy areas for UP was nothing more than a 5x5 gravel area enough to put your camper in and park in front not to mention that you could roll over and touch your neighbour....some would call that cosy I would say impersonal. Price was steep but expected that for the remoteness and the fact it was Ayers Rock. Showers were nothing flash, would like to see a face lift as they looked tired. Water was warm to cool depending on how many using at the time and doesn't matter when you go it's always busy. Busy place the campground and considering majority of the tours are at the crack of dawn the campers etiquette in regards to 10pm didn't exist. Noise constantly throughout the night = restless night sleep. Did plan to stay 2 nights but only stayed for 1. Pleasant enough and they have the monopoly when it comes to camping

After travelling for a few weeks and camping on red dirt, the grass at Ayers Rock Resort campground was a welcome site. We had a lovely spot, with plenty of space. The amenities were excellent, although the camp kitchen was disappointing, as it wasn't really well equipped at all. It was pretty pricey at $36 a night for an unpowered spot, but it was the cheapest option in the area (other than travelling 80km to and from Curtin Springs each day). Overall an enjoyable stay and nice and close to Uluru and The Olgas

Campground is the cheapest option for staying near Uluru. The grounds are well serviced and clean. Facilities are clean and plentiful and quiet at night time even with the school trips. The cabins are pretty small and could do with some updating tho, it's our second time here, camped the first, cabin the second. Think I'd camp again versus cabin stay.
