We stayed in our camper trailer on a powered site for 2 nights with our friends in their caravan on the site opposite. Reception staff were friendly and efficient and a wealth of information and the cafe/ restaurant made a good coffee and a fantastic Classic burger with a delicious angus beef patty. Again the staff were very friendly and the service was great . The amenities were clean ( I don’t mind sharing my shower with a few bugs .... you are in the outback !) We used the pool after our walk in Kings Canyon and it was clean and very refreshing after a long hot day. Beautiful & quiet at night just make sure you bring your insect repellent because once the flies go to bed the mozzies come out to play. We hope we get to come back again and stay longer next time, thanks for an awesome stay !

This stay was worth every penny - the food and drink package was incredible as was the hospitality and cleanliness of the room! I loved it and will be recommending it to all my friends. The pool was stunning too. Thanks to the team for a perfect stay. Would recommend staying more than one night to make the most of it.

We couldnt have asked for a more perfect stay., not even the remotest feel of the cookie cutter experience hotels provide. Complete privacy on the furthest away site, with the most amazing open air bath with more than enough room for two people to lay back, relax and watch the stars or feel the heat of your wood fire. The beds are super comfy and spacious and enough blankets to keep everyone snuggly on the cooler nights and a very cold air conditioner for the hotter times. The food was fantastic, we couldnt fit it all in... we did try our best though!!! Loved having the ability to cook it for ourselves when we wanted it and to be able to eat in the privacy of our own deck. The restocked bar fridge each day with a personalised preference to wine, beer or cider, plus soft drinks and snacks was such a treat and as much as we tried we couldnt drink our way through the fridge each day!!! Esther and Peter went out of their way to make us feel welcomed, comfortable, reassured and nothing was too much trouble, even to the extent of lending us their own jackets for the unusually cold and rainy day and driving us up and down the escarpment track as our car was only a 2 wheel drive and the track was too soft, from the rare and wonderful rain. After reading some of the bad reviews from last year, you can see the remarkable difference the new owners and current management team have made to the overall Kings Creek experience. Although the cost of the escarpment package seems high, when you calculate the cost of a NT 4 star cookie cutter hotel room, plus the resort priced meals and drinks, I dont believe you could find a more idyllic getaway or deal. (to give you an idea...... staying overnight at the Lost Camel in Yulara, in a room with no windows, including lunch, dinner and drinks cost us $750)

This place is awesome. The tent was very clean and comfortable, and the air con was nice and cold. It’s in a great location with a beautiful view of George Gill Range. An easy drive to Kings Canyon and another beautiful walk at Kathleen Springs. We felt very welcome. The pool offered very welcome respite from the heat. Sam cooked up amazing food and makes the best coffee for miles. We made friends with the resident camels and we saw a dingo!! Will definitely stay here again. Thanks for your hospitality Michelle and Sam
